Sennheiser RS 180 Wireless Headphones


Sennheiser is a brand that stands out in the high-end and professional audio industry. They've recently launched a new model, the RS 180 a set of headphones that is a successor to the RS 170, which had a closed circumaural design. In this review, we...

The RS 180 comes across as an average sounding pair of wireless headphones. For a price of Rs. 17,990, one expects a lot more than that. We were pretty impressed though, with the range but we would also have liked much better audio quality to go with...

Sennheiser RS 180


Sennheiser has a reputation for making some of the best-sounding wireless headphones on the market, and the $329.95 RS 180 demonstrates that it has learned its lessons well. Though they're fairly expensive, the headphones sound great and are remarkably...

The Sennheiser RS 180 is a full-size, lightweight set of wireless headphones with Kleer technology that's comfortable to wear for hours at a time.

The awkwardly placed controls on the right earcup might take a while to master, and its ambitious price tag coupled with an analog-only input may put off some buyers.

The Sennheiser RS 180's sound is competitive with similarly priced wired headphones, which should make the RS 180 irresistible to audiophiles seeking to cut the cord.

Finally, Wireless Headphones With Clean, Clear Audio


Most people equate wireless headphones as synonymous with crap. These new 'phones from Sennheiser prove otherwise.

Superb sound quality. AAA rechargeable batteries keep you bumpin' for 15 hours. Well-cushioned ear pads have a more delicate touch than a safe cracker

Power/volume buttons require a deft touch. No digital inputs. $300 and no noise canceling

Sennheiser RS180 & RS220: The Wireless Adventure


It took a while for us to get review samples of the latest Sennheiser wireless headphones but the RS180 and the new RS220 (which was only officially launched...

the only thing that bothers me a little is a digital transfer, since my dad is an old school vinyl guy. i guess there has to be a ADC in the base for analog input. Lieven,did you notice a big difference in SQ between digital and analog inputs? thanks...

Sennheiser RS180: The Wireless Audiophile


The era of real audiophile wireless headphones are finally here. Wireless and audiophiles haven't been too friendly at each other for a long time, but recently they have found ways to be reconcile their differences.

Wearing a wireless headphone is truly a remarkable experience. I set the transmitter station on my workdesk, and I'm free to go outside to sit on the porch with a book in my hand, enjoying the fresh outdoor air. Yes, you can do the same thing with a...

Sennheiser RS 180


The Sennheiser RS180 delivers a clear, quality sound. We especially loved the charging dock station and the volume adjustment for voice recognition. However, the sound quality does not match that of corded headphones. You have to sacrifice some sound...

These wireless headphones deliver a fantastic sound quality within a close range

The volume and control buttons are too close together. Optimum range is not very far

We highly recommend these headphones for wireless listening.
