What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sennheiser RS 170 Digital Wireless Headphones
  • The headset is well padded and comfortable.
  • Good- They are very comfortable to wear even when wearing glasses.
  • These are very comfortable and I can wear them for hours without any discomfort, which is important when watching movies or streaming and entire seasons of a favorite show without getting everyone in the house complaining.
  • They are decently comfortable, but the cup size is just slightly too small for my ears.
  • The controls are a little more difficult to use on the head set because of size and shape, but manageable.
Sennheiser RS 175 RF Wireless Headphone System
  • I have a rather large hat size and have no problems fitting them over my head and ears.
  • Very comfortable for their size and soft ear pads allow you to wear them comfortably for hours.
  • They're comfortable. A little heavy, batteries and all that, but I don't mind the weight.
  • They feel fairly light in the hand, but I guess the extra weight on my head really has a greater effect on my neck than I would have expected.
  • Weight is less than heavy, I'd say they're medium, but definitely not light.

What customers say about "Features"
Sennheiser RS 170 Digital Wireless Headphones
  • Digital radio headphones with Kleer technology that are free from hiss and noise.
  • The music and voice are crystal clear. Best of all I can wear them in any room in the house, because of radio frequency sound transmission. All in all they are great.
  • Great sound. I'm not sure how sensitive I am to sound quality, but to me these headphones offer fantastic sound.
  • Very high quality sound in all ranges. Highs are crisp, mids clear, lows low.
  • I like the range - I can walk around the house and there's no sound degradation because of distance.
  • I have very sensitive ears and when I use these, even on the lowest setting (1 setting above no sound at all) they will irritate my tinnitus.
Sennheiser RS 175 RF Wireless Headphone System
  • There seem to be no problems with radio reception within range, and I have not yet got to the point when it ran out of battery.
  • Great for late night listening or living with sensitive types with control issues who demand quiet media volume.
  • A quick check of the range shows I can go anywhere in my average size home without losing the signal. (I didn't try going outside).
  • The range is fabulous because the signal is not blocked by walls, interior or exterior.
  • I have sensitive ears so I can't wear them for long periods of time.

What customers say about "Power"
Sennheiser RS 170 Digital Wireless Headphones
  • Battery life is also great, as the phone recharge every time they rest on the stand.
  • I can't speak for the battery life too much... all I know is that I have used them for *hours* without any loss in sound volume or anything of the sort.
  • Excellent battery life. My max single-use session is 8 hrs, with no issues or performance degradation using OEM-provided batteries provided. 2-3 hr recharge time.
  • They also have great battery life - I've accidentally left them on for 24 hours a couple times (With no audio playing), and they still had hours of battery life left.
  • The battery life is excellent, the headphones are mostly comfortable, even more so due to being wireless and never having to experience tug or cables brushing against you.

  • Battery life is still excellent - I've had a few "marathon" sessions (use these for TV) and they've yet to run out.
  • The battery life was never an issue and I loved the charging station.
  • Lastly, good battery life. I just played for over 6 hours last night and they were still charged. Highly recommended.
  • Battery life is all day plus some.
  • I haven't tested the battery life, but I use these comfortably for hours every day without issue.
