Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Wireless headphones come in many shapes and sizes but few offer better home theater performance than the Sennheiser RS 170. This wireless headphone system is made up of a pair of wireless headphones (HDR 170) and a multi-purpose transmitter (TX 170) which also functions as an 'easy-charge' cradle and docking station. The RS 170 also features a Dynamic Bass Boost and Surround Sound simulation mode for edge-of-your-seat excitement with your favorite music and movies.

Few offer better home theater performance than the Sennheiser RS 170

There's no setup needed--simply plug the transmitter's cable into your HDTV or home theater system's output and you're ready to go. The wireless headphones operate on 2 AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries, which are included. The transmitter also acts as a charging stand for the headphones when not in use, and can fully recharge depleted headphone batteries in about 16 hours.

KLEER Wireless Audio

The RS 170 utilizes KLEER's lossless digital wireless audio transmission, offering a range of up to 260 feet for audiophile-grade sound and reception to four optional pairs of Sennheiser KLEER headphones. Never fuss with tuning again thanks to automatic, interference-free pairing between the headphone and transmitter. KLEER technology will not interfere with wireless networks or other 2.4GHz devices. Up to 4 compatible Sennhesier KLEER heaphones can be paired with the same transmitter for private listening for multiple individuals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good headphones Sept. 29 2011
I bought these for my mother. She's hard of hearing and loves to watch TV in her condo, but doesn't want to turn up her TV. She loves these and uses them all the time. The sound is very decent, comparible to my Sen HD555 except lighter and a litle more comforable over a long period.

The range is good, constant all around her apartment and they don't cut out or have static. They come with an adapter so you can plug them into your RCA outputs. This is good because you don't need to adjust the volume on the TV. When I first set them up I put the stand on top of the PVR (which is metal). It was bearly audible, because it was on metal (its in the instructions). I placed on a wooden suface and it was fine.

I picked these because of the Sennheiser sound qualify and comfort, rechargeable batteries and good wireless connection, and the RS 170's have delivered as hoped if not more in all these areas.

The buttons are poorly placed and hard to use, especially for older not techinally inclined. And you do need to be careful in placing the headphones on the stand or else they won't recharge. Placing them on the stand does automattically turn them off and they use a standard AA rechargable battery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! Aug. 1 2012

I bought these after much research and a failed purchase of some Sony wireless cans. The Sennheiser RS170's are amazing. Crystal clear sound, no static or clipping, and the range is excellent. I can go anywhere in the house including the basement. I have the sending unit out on my enclosed deck. I can go anywhere in the yard too. It starts to drop off in spots out in the front yard, but no annoying clicks or static...just silence or music. I've read where some complain about the control buttons on the side of the headset... Come on people, this is an awesome feature and well engineered. You just need to learn where the buttons are. Some also complain about the base unit moving when you push the buttons.... Humans have opposed thumbs which make pushing the buttons quite easy without it moving. The bass boost and spacial effects are a nice feature but the sound of these cans is great without.
The headset is very comfy and adjusts easily. On a hot day out in the yard sweat becomes an issue around the ears but a quick wipe with a paper towel and all is dry again. When compared to the RS180's or 169's, these are the best bang for the dollars. Amazon.ca has the best price and free shipping making the choice a no brainer!

A feature I discovered that doesn't appear in any reviews....if you tap the power button on the headset... They mute. Tap it again and music comes back on...very handy.

This is my third Sennheiser wireless headset purchase. I purchased the RS 170 because it is a full 'over the ea'r set versus the' on the ea'r set I was using. I want wireless because I want to move around with the headset and not have it fall off into the sink for example. The on the ear set kept falling off too easily. While the sound quality is excellent, I was disappointed with the RS170 on three counts. The first is the range is not nearly as good as the other 2 sets I have owned. At least 50 ft shorter. The second is the placement of the control buttons. This I had known about from reviews before I purchased. The third is with the need to press the button on the transmitter to turn on the system. My previous sets turned on automatically when I lifted the headset from the charger. Only a problem for me because I keep the transmitter behind the TV set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent all-around headphones Jan. 2 2013
Verified Purchase
I purchased the Sennheiser RS 170s to replace a set of Sony wireless headphones that I had purchased about a decade ago. Though my Sonys were still worked as well as they did initially, I was growing tired of the frequent drop-outs, pops, and crackles and figured that with the explosive growth of technology there had to be something better on the market.

These Sennheisers certainly delivered on that score. The audio quality is excellent, and is easily on par or better than the pair of (wired) Audio-Technica ATH-M50 I own for critical listening. In the four months I've owned them, I've never heard any audio artifacts - no pops, cracks, hisses, or any other sound discolorations. They really are as good as wired.

Compared to my older 900 MHz Sonys, they have less range and are more awkward to use - but for me, both of these drawbacks are relatively minor. The transmitter for my Sony set used to broadcast 100% of the time, whereas the Sennheiser base station only broadcasts when turned on - from a power usage perspective, this is a good thing. Similarly, Sony wireless headphones have a unique band that turns the headphones on when you place them on your head; Sennheiser headsets must be explicitly turned on. However, I've found that the Sennheisers stay on my head much better than my old set - I've never been worried about them falling off. They are very comfortable to wear.

I was a bit concerned with range initially, though in practice it has turned out not to be an issue.

I have a hearing problem and need the TV louder than others want it. These headphones let me set the volume independent of the TV volume and the sound is excellent.
