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...

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...

Very nice Headphones

 

Excellent Sound and very comfortable fit. Using it to listen to TV so I don't have to raise volume. Discovered the background music in many shows and movies to be excellent that could not hear normally. Excellent gift for someone with a hear disability

The headset fits so comfortable and dampens external noise in the room. Can be a problem if someone is trying to get your attention - or maybe not. If this is a problem Sennheiser Silver RS 120 version not as comfortable or tight fitting but does a...

Like a cyborg implant!

 

These are great! Solid construction, easy to setup. Batteries come pre-charged, so first charge isn\'t that long at all! Sounds great, which is most important of course, and easy to wear. I can walk around while listening to tv or music with no issues....
