Sennheiser RS 175 RF Wireless Headphone System review

 

What are the best wireless headphones for watching TV?

The Sennheiser RS 175 RF Wireless Headphone System offers impressive wireless sound, a comfortable fit and extended range (through walls), and easily connects to your TV, computer or any audio source with the included cables. Connection is rock-solid...

Somewhat pricey compared with Bluetooth options; base station/charging stand feels a little cheap.

Sennheiser's new RF-based wireless headphone system is easy to set up and delivers strong performance for both movie watching and music listening.

The Sennheiser RS175 wireless headphones are designed exclusively for indoor listening. We put them to the test to see if these headphones could deliver top-quality audio.

Review: Sennheiser RS 175 Wireless Headphones

 

Like many city dwellers, apartment living has forced a lot of compromises when it comes to my setting up a workable home theater system. The limited amount of space and the nearness of neighbours necessitates creative solutions which wireless...

Not everyone can afford a soundproofed home theatre nook or a set of 7:1 surround speakers, the RS 175 does a decent job at replacing both, while offering one of the best wireless audio experiences for homes.

Sennheiser RS 175 RF Wireless Headphone System

 

That's a question a fair number of CNET readers like to ask us, and while it's hard to give a definitive answer, Sennheiser's RS 185 model is certainly one of the better options out there at $280 (£230, AU$599).

Sennheiser RS 175

 

The Sennheiser RS 175 is a set of wireless headphones intended for home use that offer excellent range and thunderous bass.

Powerful wireless audio output. Digital and analog inputs. Bass mode increases low-end dramatically, but can be disabled. Excellent transmission—never stuttered during testing, even through walls.

Sound signature is quite sculpted. Can distort in Bass mode on deep bass tracks at high volumes. Not portable; only for home use.

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with powerful sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the RS 175 proves the bass does need to be tweaked on occasion. With Bass mode on, this track can distort a bit at top volumes. With Bass mode off,...

Sennheiser RS 175 RF HDR HEADPHONES

 

The Sennheiser RS 175 have the same design and build quality as the but sound a bit worse for critical listening. They don't do as well with voices and instruments, and they have a bit too much bass. They're also not versatile enough to use anywhere...

Low latency connection. ; Decent sound quality.

Poor isolation and high leakage. ; Limited range and usability. ; Bass delivery varies significantly across users. Sensitive to glasses.

Sennheiser RS 175 Wireless Over-the-Ear Headphones Reviewed

 

Myron Ho auditions the new $279 RS 175 headphones from Sennheiser. These wireless headphones are designed for the theaterphile who wants to enjoy private listening sessions without having to run a long cable from the AV receiver to the couch.

The RS 175 system offers seriously well-executed wireless connectivity ; The headphones offer accurate, detailed sound, with performance exceeding most wireless headphones in its price range ; The headphones are super comfortable for long-duration...

The RS 175 doesn't quite keep up sonically with its bigger brothers in the RS lineup ; The included cables don't offer the best performance

The Sennheiser RS 175 is a super-comfortable, great-performing pair of wireless headphones that beats out most competition at its retail price of $279. Better performance certainly can be had for those looking for those headphones that can provide that...
