overly complicated ?

  • Summary: I bought these to replace an old Phillips set i had been using. I am a little hard of hearing so headphones are a great way of getting clarity and volume without annoying others. I have two issues with these headphones. 1/ They only come with a optical lead so straight away most people will need to go and buy a conventional jack-plug type lead. Why at £179.00 is there not a £2.00 lead included ? 2/ There is very limited volume control in the digital/optical mode.

Disappointed

  • Summary: Initially they worked very well and I was pleased with them, in fact I was thrilled. However, on only the 3rd or 4th time of use they simply stopped working whilst I was wearing them. I followed all the trouble shooting guides but nothing worked . I have returned them to the supplier.Six weeks later I am still waiting for a replacement or refund.

Not bad but that's how far they go...

  • Summary: After reading many positive reviews here and from plethora of other sites [...], I decided to give these headphones a try, especially considering great promotional a-la Black Friday discount... I also picked Sennheiser RS-126 for mainly same reasons, as well as for the brand's high reputation in this particular market (must say, after a lot of hesitation due to the renowned appeal and quality of more expensive RS 160/170/180).

Sound level

  • Summary: Nice unit, 'Does what it says on the box'. Good sound quality, crisp and clear. But if you have a hearing problem the available maximum sound level with digital input (fixed input level) may be a problem.(The volume may have to be set at the higher limit). They are fine for normal hearing people. Sony (and others) should consider 'hard of hearing people', as everyone gets older their hearing becomes a bit faded.

Bon mais pas bon aussi.

  • Summary: Elle est utilisée avec un home cinéma, branché sur un système Bose Lifestyle 535-II par voie de fibre optique. Elle fonctionne parfaitement avec tous les films enregistrés en MPEG, AAC, ou AC3, mais pas avec Dolby Digital ou DTS. J'ai aussi une vieille casque Sony MDR-DS5000 (son surround 5.1) qui fonctionne parfaitement avec toutes les sources sur le meme système donc c'est bien le processeur du casque DS6500 qui est la cause du problème.
  • Pros: Facile à utiliser, Excellente qualité de son, Confortable
  • Cons: Ne Lecture Pas Tout

gutes Headphone, aber...

Hermann Göbel, Amazon

  • Summary: das tolle Design sowie die guten und einfach verständlichen Anschlussmöglichkeiten und Einstellungen reichen leider nicht aus. Das Klangbild ist im direkten Vergleich mit Sennheiser RS180 für mein Hörempfinden zu wenig detailliert in den Höhen und flacherem Bass(trotz geschlossener Bauweise gegenüber dem RS180). Höhenanhebung bei Surround-Betrieb klang dann vernünftig, aber das hat es nicht mehr rausgerissen.

Ganz vernünftig aber nicht perfekt

Peter1512, Amazon

  • Summary: Man muss bei diesem Kopfhörer den Modusschalter öfter betätigen, als mir eigentlich lieb ist. Habe ich einen Spielfilm gesehen und dabei den Kino-Modus eingestellt, habe ich einen unangenehmen Raumhall, wenn ich mit der gleichen Einstellung die Nachrichten sehe. Die Einstellung der Modi funktioniert nur an der Basisstation, sodass es zu einer sportlichen Betätigung werden kann, wenn man öfters umschaltet und immer eine vernünftige Tonqualität haben will.
