Sounds great, but...

Anthony P., Crutchfield
1 February 2014
  • 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 leisure.
  • Pros: Long Range Wireless, good sound quality
  • Cons: Price, build quality.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Great sound !
  • Cons: See review

RS 180 - TV must be muted.

Sonny, B&H Photo
19 January 2011
  • Excerpt: The Sennheiser RS 180 headphones produce an echo from the primary sound source (TV, sound system, etc.) We tried the headphones with a variety of televisions and surround systems, all with the same results. Sennheiser advises that the solution is to mute the primary sound source -- which of course means the only person who can hear the audio is the person wearing the headphones...

Sennheiser RS 180

StevefromJH, Crutchfield

  • 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.

tinged with a disappointment

Ms B, Amazon

  • 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. On further investigation I have found similar comments from other users. I would probably not have purchased them had I known this...but I am going to persevere and see what use I am able to get out of them.......

Good Sound but not Suitable for all Applications

  • Summary: I have just purchased from Ritcher Sounds. Sound is excellent. Range reasonable, maintains quality until reaches maximum range or blind spot, then just drops out. Don't like controls on headset. Interferes with WiFi router, often causes internet to drop out. Only answer seems to be PLT internet connection.
  • Pros: sound quality
  • Cons: interferes with wifi

Good, but some issues...

Doogal, Amazon
18 February 2013
  • 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. The headphones certainly help in that respect and have proved an asset. However, there are some issues and these are the main reason for the mediocre score.

The Disappointing Sennheiser RS180 Headphones

LB1kinobe, Amazon
5 October 2011
  • Summary: Sennheiser RS180 (HDR180 Headphones and TR180 Transmitter) Pros. The quality of sound is greatly improved from the older models. 2 RCA sockets are provided for a further sound output. Attenuator Switch for 0db or -8db is provided. Cons. Measured with uncompressed pads the gap between the Headphones is only 56mm when unused so that adults may find the phones uncomfortably tight on the ears due to the strength of the headband. Range much reduced to the old model.

R 180 Headphones

Mr. Terence B. Hurley, Amazon
3 January 2011
  • 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. I did report this to Sennheiser after only a few days but have had no response from them at all.

FLAWED

clem, Amazon

  • Summary: We bought these to replace an excellent pair of TR140's (simple wear & tear - the headband was about to snap after several years' daily use.) The TR range is RF, and it turns out the digital 'phones are effectively unusable for the TV - google Sennheiser RS180 + echo (or latency) and you'll see what I mean.
