Summary: A lot of research led me to the RS-180, but I wasnt prepared to cough up close to $600 Australian.
I had little choice but to shop offshore, and saved around 50% including fast shipping.
Having had them for just 4days as I type this I have them plugged into a DAB Plus radio and am not disapointed.
Excerpt: My wife and I both have trouble hearing voices during TV broadcast and TV movies. The RS180 solved this problem.<br /><br />Heads up: The documentation is not good so start-up was a try this, try that, situation.
Excerpt: I have had it for almost a week now.<br /><br />Worked right away. Quality of sound is superb.<br />It helped me appreciate the subtle sounds in some programs, that I have never heard before. Controls are cumbersome. Levels of graduation in balance and volume control can be better.
Excerpt: [...] But the headphones are nice and comfortable. They have a velvet-like padding around the ears. It is easy to set up. I just wish the volume buttons were much easier to find on over the ears, without having to take the headphones off to find the volume buttons.
Audio is good, but a little tight and uncomfortable if wearing long

Summary: Any chance of add-on to booster the wireless range like anntena booster, external anntena? The product is a little pricy considering the two defects in design mentioned before.
Pros: Audio is very good due to the modulation technology used. Headphone is light but not very light. AA battery.
Cons: Distance is like Wi-Fi, can not compete with old analogue modulation, I lost signal (total silence) when I step out of the door with the new headphone but NOT if I using my old Sennheiser analogue headphone (with noise if out of range), this might be expected. The headphone does NOT allow you to ...
Excerpt: RS-180 has a very good sound quality. It is easy to install and to use. Most of the wireless headphones interfere with wireless network and you cannot browse Internet as you use your headphones. RS-180 works excellent with wireless network.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
Excerpt: I have owned these Sennheiser RS180 headphones for about a month (gift from my wife) and am completely satisfied with them. My positive and negative experiences are listed below.<br /><br />1.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Review of Sennheiser RS 180 vs RS 160 wireless headphones

Summary: I already had the earlier RS 160 headphones, so I was pretty sure what to expect. The RS 160 advertises a range of 20 metres (slightly over 60 feet). The RS 180 advertises a range of 100 metres. My objection to the earlier RS 160 was that I wasn't able to go on the porch and still hear my source.
Pros: Excellent SOUND Very good RANGE Plug 'n play
Cons: Very slight delay compared to source, while the sound is digitized. Not a serious flaw. No tactile identification on the headset buttons. Have to take the cans off to locate the button I wish to push. Should have noticeable buttons.
Excerpt: Tried these headphones today (17 Nov 09). Crystal clear audio, including when I walked about 20 meters from the base station, 2 rooms distant, with a lot of AV equipment close by. No hiss when the CD was on pause, and no annoying clicks that happen on other headphones when the channel changes.
Pros: Attractive Design, Clear sound, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
