Good for TV

The RS 175 does many things very well, however reproducing realistic sounding treble is not one of them.

Channel separation, bass and mid-range are all very good. Headphone are well made and comfortable, and effective for hundreds of feet from transmitter. I recommend these for use with television viewing, however you may be disappointed for true sounding musical reproduction.

Excellent Headphones for TV

The quality of the headphones themselves, the based unit and sound they produce is excellent. I like the bass boost and the 2 different surround sound settings. The only issue I had was the setup using the digital optical connection. One of the reasons I bought this headset was for the digital optical connection. The technical specs don't specify that the input over the digital optical connection must be stereo. The headphone base does not accept 5.1-channel sound that my TV outputs over the digital optical connection and my TV does not provide a way to change that to stereo. I ended up using the RCA output from my TV which works great and gives good performance. I did not have any problems going anywhere in my house and still hearing the TV sound through the headphones. Great range. I rated it a 4.5 instead of a 5 because of the lack of 5.1-channel digital optical capability and it not clearly specifying that in the tech specs.

Great set of headphones.

I am not savvy about wireless headphones so I read a lot of reviews and settled on the Sennheiser RS 175's. They are absolutely fantastic. I have moderate hearing loss and was having trouble listening to the TV. I am now understanding every word not to mention the background music and special sound effects. They are not cheap but worth every penny. I highly recommend them. I plan to purchase a second pair of headphones for my wife. My only complaint is that even though the transmitter can support 2 headphones it can only charge one at a time.

Pricey But Pleasing

Although somewhat "pricey" (but significantly lower on-line price than competitors), headphones performed flawlessly and exceeded my expectations. I have no complaints whatsoever EXCEPT that while Sennheiser included several types of electrical adapters for the worldwide market but failed to include a mini-jack adapter to accommodate the quarter-inch jacks found in many A/V receivers. This was deemed a minor deficiency.

Delivers as promised

I am hard of hearing. My old wireless headphones did not deliver enough volume for watching TV. The Sennheiser phones crank out a lot of volume, and the sound is crisp and clear.

I just wish I could also use them while watching Netflix. However, the inability to do this probably has more to do with my eight year old TV than with the phones.

Great Sound

These headphones sound great. If the removal of wires is what your looking for, these are moderately priced and deliver quality audio. I use them for listening to music but I did hook them up to my television to hear them. I hooked them up with both the cables. First the digital cable on the Television, then the analog cable to my turn table speakers via the headphone jack. They performed flawlessly. I did not notice a sound quality difference between the two cables, but the manufacture recommends using the digital cable when ever possible. The range of these speakers are quite impressive. I have a small house so I tested the difference and was able to go out side and still hear my music crystal clear.

Comfort and Quality

The headphones work superbly once I figured out how to get them to work. The enclosed literature is the only fault that I encountered. More written information would have been very helpful about the charging of the battery and syncing the headphone to the transmitter. I haven't looked at the CD to see if further information would be there. What if I didn't own a computer? AS it is, I own a Surface Pro which does not have a CD reader. But disregarding the lac of setup/operational information, the headphones are wonderful.

Great Headphones

If you're in the market for a set of wireless headphones that won't break the bank I would not hesitate to recommend the RS175's.

The sound quality is good for television. I have not tried them with music so I cannot comment on the quality of sound for that purpose.

These are a perfect solution if you want to watch TV late night without disturbing others or simply want the volume higher than others watching.

It took me a few minutes to realize that I had to disable the surround sound on my TV to get the headphones to function with Netflix and HBO Now through my Apple TV. But once I got that sorted I couldn't be more pleased.

Nice product

So far, so good. Obviously a quality product (with quality packaging!!) with easy installation, especially with the optic audio cable. It does block out ambient noise with the closed back, which can be what you want, or may NOT want. Very satisfied.

Great product

Easy to set up and works great. Line of sight not an issue in our house. Can walk around house and walls do not block transmission. Placement of transmitter is not critical.
