Q & As


Sennheiser RS170 Wireless Full-Size Headphones, Black 5 5 6 6
Purity of sound Excellent head phones, comfortable and with incredible sound Only criticisms are the fiddly controls for volume and on/off switch. 19 June 2014
great sound quality I use these in a big office full of all sorts of electrical gear so I was a little apprehensive that the signal may be interupted, but they work like a dream. Very clear sound, comfortable and the charging cradle is great. 11 February 2014
Excellent I bought these to replace my ageing RS40 headphones which I have had for over 10 years. I wanted a pair of closed ear phones to avoid sound bleed and these suit. The sound quality is very good and the phones are very comfortable even on my larger ears. The thing I am most impressed with though is the clarity of the sound (especially given some of the reviews I have read on other sites). I was used to hissing and clicks on the old RS40s with dropouts as I walked around my house. With the RS170s, there is simply none of that - the sound remains clear and does not drop our even when I walk from through 3 or 4 rooms - I can't fault them really. 17 December 2013
RS170 - excellent and worth the premium The RS170 headphones are excellent and sound reproduction is first class.Am using them mainly from the TV because of slight hearing problems and they work fine. The small instruction booklet was quite poor and did not allow the best set-up. One had to look through the very long DVD to get the correct set-up and adjustment. Apart from that they are excellent and cut out any peripheral sounds. 31 October 2013
Fantastic quality and comfortable to wear I replaced a cheaper pair of Senheiser headphones with this pair and found them to be excellent. I use them for listening to my TV through the headphone socket. (Panasonic TV). The only point worth making is that if you are listening to the TV with other people in the room then the headphones are a little out of sinc with the TV speakers. I say this because I am a bit deaf and I find these headphones great to listen to the TV with the TV volume turned down to zero. If there are other people in the room and need the TV volume turned up then the sinc problem is quite noticeable. A great product and a good range. 21 October 2012
REMARKABLE These are the finest headphones I have ever used including 'wired'Only slight negative is the very small buttons for volume etc but am getting used to using them. 28 April 2012
