1 - SOUND LEVEL: There is a db switch at the back. By default it is set to lower volume, not sure why. Without reading the manual (who does?) people would think the volume on this headset is too low. I believe they did this for inputs from amplified receivers.
2 - BUILD QUALITY: The build quality seems bad. Since this is Sennheiser, rest assured the quality is not bad at all. It feels like cheap plastic because we associate weightless with cheap. Sennheiser puts a lot of effort in making their headphones light but durable (although the first iteration of 280 pro had a headband snapping problem). This headphone is very close to weightless when it is on your head. To achieve that, they use very light plastic. The only thing I have concerns with (same with the RS160) is the rotating hinge connecting the band to the earcup. I am hoping that it will not fail. I have owned the RS160 for quite some time and so far, no sign that they will fall apart.
3 - SOUND LEAKAGE: These (RS180) are open back headphones. If people are spending this much money on headphones, they should look up what open back means. They provide a better sound stage, more airy natural sound but the drawback is that people can listen to what you are listening to (at higher volumes) and you can listen to the surrounding environment. One of my reasons for buying these was to let me listen to things around the house (door bell / phone call). With the RS160, you won't hear any of that. They isolate fairly well (although not as much as, say the 280 pro, or the 380 pro).Read more ›
The one big selling point was that the rechargeable batteries are replaceable by the owner. Just twist the ear piece to expose the battery compartment which can be used with ordinary alkaline batteries or the rechargeable batteries included. To charge with rechargeable batteries only just place the headset on the receiver so they are charged and ready for your next use.
Listening to a variety of music on the Sennheiser RS180's they have a deep rich bass and crisp clean highs not coloured or distorted at all !Listening to Steely Dan Aja was like listening to a whole new cd on these headphones.
Can't recommend them enough.
When first setting them up give them a chance as they seem to learn the base receiver if that makes sence. I had static at first then after a few minutes I haven't heard one bit of Interference and have roamed the entire house with them on.
Shop around you can get them for under $300.
The controls take a few times to get used to, with the On/Off button being between Sound up and Sound down, weirdly enough, but I never got it wrong, so maybe it isn't that weird!
Battery life is FANTASTIC! I ran it for 18 hours straight once for a Breaking Bad marathon, it kept going, then I charged it for 6 hours while I slept and was able to get another 12 hours, without any sign of battery fatigue, so I have no idea when it would have shut down, but I certainly would have before them!
I have quite a big head and had no issue fitting it. I have to say, it feels a bit weird on my ears, because all the sides are touching them (the headphones go over the ears). It's not painful in any way, but a bit bizarre feeling.
It feels a lot less hot, being velour-covered, than leather ones, at least.
I'm very happy I treated myself to these headphones.
