Read if you have hearing loss or watch from bed !!!
1 February 2014
Summary: My wife and I have used Sennheiser sets for years and have loved them. This is a replacement purchase for a old set (still works, but are badly worn). The pros and cons listed below are based on that fact. Old vs New. Wish I could find "new" stock of older model for purchase.
Pros: 1. Lightweight 2.Has control buttons rather than roller, so you don't accidently change the settings by roller hitting pillow, etc. However, the buttons are so small and flat they are hard to feel.
Cons: 1. Husband has hearing loss and his balance settings automatically "pair" to my set...only volume can be controlled individually. This is a deal killer for us. 2. Automatically shuts off after 5 min, so don't plan to watch TV in the middle of the night without having to get out of bed to turn the...
Summary: The sound is pretty good though I think my Klipsch earbuds sound better--a lot better, too bad my earbuds aren't wireless. I needed wireless headphones so I can watch my multitude of Blu ray movies whenever I want, not just on movie night at the house and I can now watch my 3d Blu Rays at my...
Summary: The product works as advertised but you can do much better with a wired solution or a separate receiver and conventional phones. Operation of the phones is complicated and the controls on the head set are almost useless without removing the phones to adjust.
Pros: decent sound and range for a wireless set
Cons: not user friendly; poor isolation from ambient sounds
Summary: I am unable to keep the second headset bound to the transmitter. Each time my wife & I want to use them I must first go through the same "binding" procedure. Seems to me a simple "switch would be appropriate.
Summary: Good sound quality but two complaints. The on/off and +/- volume controls are badly designed. It's hard to tell which is which by feeling. The buttons should be made much more distinct. The claimed 300' of range is way off. I don't get much more than 50' with clear line of sight transmission.
Summary: whilst the product delivers a very good sound quality the disappointment is that the headphones leak sound which is very annoying for anyone in close proximity.....in this price range I have to really consider the product a bit of a chocolate kettle.
Summary: I had previously bought a pair of RS110 as a birthday present and was able to try them out. The range was excellent all over the house with no drop-outs. I was disappointed, therefore, to find that the RS180 signal cuts out in many spots, some quite close to the transmitter.
Summary: This was purchased, together with a second headphone set, primarily to enhance television listening. My wife and I both find tv speech sound muffled and overwhelmed by the 'background' music that seems so prevalent in today's films.
Summary: Good and bad things with this product. The good is that they are very comfy on the ears and the audio is excelent with a respectable range. The not so good is that the phones have latency which when watching TV makes the sound out of sync with the video.
