Sennheiser RS 170 review

 

Like AKG, Sennheiser has opted for the Kleer technology to provide lossless CD-quality streaming audio. But while the Kleer transmitter provided with the AKG headphones is small enough to slip into your pocket and carry around with you, Sennheiser's...

The stay-at-home transmitter isn’t much good if you’re looking for a portable set of headphones to use with an iPhone or iPod. However, the sound quality provided by the RS 170s makes them one of the best sets of wireless headphones we’ve ever used.

Sennheiser RS 170 Headphones Review

 

The Sennheiser RS 170 Headphones feature a completely wireless system to bring you extremely portable high quality headphones, don't let the wireless fool you though, the Sennheiser RS 170 Headphones still deliver the highest possible quality by...

Crisp and clear audio

Slow charging

Overall, the Sennheiser RS 170 headphones are some very high quality, high performing headphones and I’ve have expected nothing less from Sennheiser.

A Wireless Headset : Sennheiser RS 170 WIreless Headset

 

b>Wireless technology has allowed users the freedom to work untethered with their keyboard and mouse. The same technology can also give greater freedom when listening to music.

With the volume set at a level for comfortable listening, it was possible to pick up some outside noise so you were not totally isolated from the world. This could prove useful if the phone or door bell demands your attention while listening to music

Wireless or Wired : Sennheiser RS 170 & Cyber Snipa Sonar 5 1 Championship

 

Headsets are very popular ways to listen, here a choice of two. The first both conventional and unconventional as it lets you roam as its Wireless. The second intended more for gaming means you are tethered buts its USB.

Until you try a wireless headphone set you do not know the extra freedom it gives you, you could make a cup of tea, fetch a book from another room or visit the loo while still listening to your favourite music from the living room. It is 20x23x9cm...

Sennheiser RS 170 review

 

The $279.95 Sennheiser RS 170 is a set of wireless headphones with a base unit that doubles as a transmitter and a battery charger. One of the nicest things a reviewer can say about wireless headphones is that they don't sound like wireless headphones,...

The Sennheiser RS 170 is a full-size set of headphones with Kleer wireless technology that delivers CD-quality sound.

The awkward placement of the controls on the right earcup may require a longer learning curve for some users, and the transmitter/charger base lacks digital inputs.

The RS 170 continues Sennheiser's unchanging dedication to sonic clarity and they're well worth the price for anyone looking to grab wireless sound from a TV, AV receiver, cable box, or game console.

Sennheiser RS 170 Wireless Headphones

 

The revolution in wireless headphones.

High quality sound. Transmitter doubles as a battery charger for headphone batteries. The range of the wireless signal is pretty good. You can pair multiple headphones with single transmitter

Volume controls on the headphones takes a little getting used to

This headphone set provides the best quality you could expect from a wireless headphone set today. The transmitter is also highly useful as it provides the functionality of a charger as well. In addition, the transmitter can support up to four...
