Sennheiser RS 185 RF HDR HEADPHONES

 

The Sennheiser RS 185 are comfortable, easy-to-use and have an improved sound over the and . Their open design enhances their sound quality, but it also makes them less versatile than the already limited use of the RS series. They're leaky, they barely...

Low latency connection. ; Good sound quality.

Poor isolation and high leakage, by design. ; Limited range and usability.

Sennheiser RS185

 

The Sennheiser RS185 are wireless headphones, but quite unlike the sea of wireless sets you'll see elsewhere. They don't use Bluetooth, but a bespoke RF system that offers much better range and an uncompressed audio stream.

Very comfortable ; Good sound quality ; Reliable wireless with good range

Lower frequencies could be a bit tauter

Good sound and great wireless makes this a top at-home wires-free set.

Wireless Headphones RS-185 : Sennheiser RS-185

 

These quality wireless headphones from Sennheiser can take input from RCA jacks or Optical. The latter means that if your TV has optical out those of us with less than 20:20 hearing can now hear that murmured dialogue so favoured in US movies.

They can be as much as 23cm across at the base of the earpads and the same from the base of the earpads to the top of the headband. Each arm has 4.5cm of contraction from this point and the earpads will sit happily at half the mentioned spread. The...

Sennheiser RS 185 wireless headphones REVIEW

 

Sennheiser maintains its lead in home wireless headphones with the marvellous RS 185.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Amazing!

 

- I would 100% get this, it is worth it!

- You can actually walk around your entire house and jam out to music (or whatever is playing) - Great for videogames (CSGO, Skyrim, etc.)

- If you want to use this for your computer you have to make sure you have the right optical ports. (Or get a soundcard with one)

Good Sound!

 

It was disappointing that my TV doesn't have digital optical, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the analog set up works just as well! I can now watch TV and movies while my daughter studies and fully enjoy it! The fit is very comfortable even...

Expected More For The Money and Sennheiser

 

Had a 180 for 3 years and it all of a sudden started cutting in and out so I went to the 185. I returned my first set because it wouldn't keep a charge. Base unit showed green and the charge would last 5 minutes. Other times, charge would last hours.....

Distance is a farce.... maybe 50 feet at best

 

I bought these to replace a set of Sony RF 970R headphones that I loved. I was looking for more comfort, better sound, and significantly better range. I was willing to pay up to $400 to get what I wanted. Comfort: The Sonys were comfortable but as they...

Great when it works

 

I read reviews and was excited about using this product for late night audio with the convenience of wireless. It worked great until brief lapses in connection happened more and more frequently, until it became unbearable. I finally returned the phones...
