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

Another plus: A single transmitter can feed up to four pairs of headphones, so multiple users can listen simultaneously. It's possible to find wired headphones of similar quality for less, but if you want a truly excellent set of headphones with...

Amazing sound quality, Comfortable, Good wireless range, Automatic Level Control

Awkward button placement, Some minor sound lag

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 RS 180 Wireless Headphone (Playback 33)

 

All other things being equal, I'd guess most of us would rather have wireless than wired headphones. It is pretty obvious that cords get in the way, cords require you to remove headphones to get up and find an old CD, and cords restrict your dance...

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.

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...

The list of the Sennheiser RS180's specification highlights is long, but we'll get to all that in just a moment. In the meantime, consider how exciting it would be to own a pair of wireless headphone that come with a dock that not only reminds you of...

Sennheiser RS 180

 

Wireless headphones haven't quite caught the imagination in the way manufacturers thought they would but with the Sennheiser RS 180 headphones being almost child-play to set up, now may be the time to revisit the technology. No wires, perfect sound and...

The Sennheiser RS 180 may be a little wide and heavy but for wire-free audio they certainly deliver in terms of build and audio quality. Sennheiser RS 180 is tagged with Sennheiser RS 180, Wireless earphones and Sennheiser. Select a tag (Sennheiser RS...
