Avoid! Get the RS-180s instead

Meade, Crutchfield
28 February 2014
  • Summary: These are Sennheiser's flagship headphone and everything about them is top notch. They are comfortable, well made, easy to use, and the base is attractive and flexible to set up. The one problem with them that absolutely RUINS them is that the transmitter cuts out & pops/hisses about every 20-30s. Don't misunderstand me, I'm not being picky about a little hiccup or slight sound imperfection; I'm saying that every 30 seconds, the sound just turns off for 1 second.
  • Pros: Best wireless headphones on the market when they work. But... see the cons
  • Cons: Transmitter is garbage and Sennheiser won't acknowledge it (despite literally HUNDREDS of customers having this same experience)! Avoid this model until it gets updated or check out the RS-180s

Bill P, Crutchfield
28 February 2014
  • Summary: Phones exceeded my expectations for refurbished unit in all attributes. I would recommend this product for anyone that wants both quality and comfort.
  • Pros: Everything about this unit including price.
  • Cons: A minor point, but a HDMI connection would be a nice feature to add to this unit.

Great Product

dlinde, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I was able to hook the earphones to the Zone 2 on my receiver. This allowed me to listen to one source while my wife listened to another. She could watch TV while I listened to the CD player. Or I could use the earphones while watching the same TV as she was watching. The earphones allowed me to listen anywhere in our 1950 Cape Cod style home.
  • Cons: The charging time is somewhat slow. If you use the phones for an hour it will take two hours to recharge. I wish the recharge time was much faster.

RS-220

John A, Crutchfield
7 January 2014
  • Summary: I have been purchasing equipment from Crutchfield for about 30 years now and would rate each piece of equipment as I have the RS-220. Sadly, I returned the product because I could not hear over the system due to a severe hearing loss. My wife who has normal hearing, tested the unit and praised the sound quality of the RS-220 in all respects. I expected nothing less from a product sold by Crutchfield.

Excellent Sound Quality But......

Steven, Crutchfield
7 January 2014
  • Summary: I suppose you could get a much better experience with a wired headphone, but for a wireless set, these cans have the best sound you will find. The headphone is very comfortable. The only time they felt too warm on my head was when I was vacuuming the house. Setup is not my bag, so I called the Crutchfield tech number and a really nice and very patient guy walked me through it. I have couple of big issues with these head phones listed under the Cons below.
  • Pros: I use my headphones mostly for watching movies in the evening when my wife has gone to bed. The sound quality on a Blu-ray movie is pretty amazing. Super comfortable and easy to use. One thing to keep in mind as I have found, the sound you hear is only going to be as good as the sound quality of what you are listening to. Blu-ray and high quality cds will sound incredible. Old analog recordings are going to sound like... well, old analog recordings.
  • Cons: Drops and clipping.... Very frustrating. My wifi is near the headphone base and it does affect the headphones. It clips, and clips, and clips during a movie. I turn off my wifi and no more clipping. I'll have to see if it will help by moving my wifi router. The drops will always be there, but I can live with them. They only happen when I go to the other end of the house and have a couple of walls between me and the headphone base. Usually, I'm right in front of the tv...

So far so good

Robpar, Crutchfield
4 November 2013
  • Summary: Just got these as Xmas present. Sound very good but experiences a little interference or signal loss when in room next door to transmitter . Will check with tech support. On/off switch has to be pushed with fingernail or so,etching sharper, finger tip takes a few tries. Wish it had adapter fro standard size headphone jack.
  • Pros: Very good sound, easy to set up
  • Cons: No headphone adapter for standard size jack On/off switch hard to use Some connection loss when in another room (hope it's me and not the headphones)
