Excerpt: I have a problem hearing the higher frequencies (brought on by loud noises back in Nam, not Woodstock), so I use the headphones for listening to the TV. The Good - with the headphones I can hear everything clearly. I can also hear the phone ringing and someone knocking at my door. They fit comfortably. The Bad - not all the buttons on the headphone have raised indicators and they are very close to each other, so many times I hit the wrong button.
Summary: I originally purchased the Sennheiser flagship wireless earphones (RS-220s) and was impressed by their build quality, the controls, their comfort, and the sturdy attractive design. Unfortunately, the RS-220s use an awful transmitter than cuts out & pops/hisses about every 20 seconds. For $500 that is unacceptable. So, I unhappily downgraded to the RS-180s. In short, these sound just as good as the 220s and never cut out or pop/hiss.
Pros: -Great sound quality -Very rare for audio to drop out -Good range -Very comfortable
Cons: -Button layout is horrendous. It will take quite a bit of practice before you can adjust the volume without accidentally turning them off -Quality 'feel' is inferior to the RS-220s for both the headphones and the base
Summary: Sound quality is very good, but I haven't worn headsets for years, so nothing to really compare them to. I listen to music several hours a day, I listen for certain instruments and sounds. The Sennheiser 180 s miss very little compared to my speakers...bass has a different sound but I would expect that..These ear phones against 3800 dollar speakers...It s great to be able enjoy my porch swing and my music at the same time.. well worth the money.
Pros: Easy set up, mobility is great, good sound, and packed by Crutchfield.
Cons: The ear pads are hot to my ears, I am a hot natured person. I've solved the problem with cloth pad covers. The markings on the headset could be raised a little more making it easier to identify the controls by touch.. that would be it....
Summary: I use the set when on the treadmill and sound comes through without interference. It comes through outside on the patio and throughout the house. I haven't measured whether I get 300 or not but don't need that distance. The sound quality is good but could be a little better. The earpiece could also be a little more comfortable. All in all its a good set.
Summary: For us with marginal hearing this sytem is top notch. The sound quality is exactly what we were looking for. Unfortunately the engineers did not see fit to consider that people who are hard of hearing, many times are also getting up there in age and don't need the frustration of Multi Function swithches. Maybe a dollar more and they could have made the headset perfect!
