Summary: abt gave me great terms and rapid delivery. My wife and I both have some hearing loss, and with two pair we really enjoy TV programs and our CD player a great deal more. Also one of us can listen without bothering the other one because the speakers can be muted. I wish the ear covers were available in several sizes.
Pros: Clear Reception, Good Base Control, Great Fidelity
Cons: Ear Covers A Little Small, Mediocre Range, Need To Remove To Adj Vol
Excerpt: Was looking for some wireless headphones for some late night movie watching ( got tired of reading subtitles with the volume low ) and came across these. Debated between the RS170 and the RS180, but decided on the 180 after finding a decent deal on them. The headphones have very nice and clear sound, utilizing the "Kleer" technology. I've heard the previous models had some background noise problems. I haven't done much music listening, but has been great for movies.
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.
Pros: Build quality is really nice., Sound quality is better than I thought it would be., Simple to setup and use.
Cons: Not that I use them but the control buttons on the unit are very small and could be difficult to use without taking it off your head.
Summary: I got these headphones to wear at night so I didn't disturb my neighbors when I was watching tv or movies at night. I haven't used Sennheiser's other wireless headphones but these seem to put out sound nearly on par with my HD 595s. They do get warm over extended use. I didn't find this to be nearly as much of a problem when watching tv, I'd just take them off during comercial breaks.
Summary: I purchased the RS 180's and after using them for almost 40 days I am completely happy with my choice. I chose this model because they have an Automatic Level Control feature that does a nice job of leveling the volume between programs and commercials, etc. Once you adjust the head set's L-R balance and volume controls for your preference, you rarely ever need to adjust them again.
Summary: [...] 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.
