What customers say about "Size & Weight"
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.
Sennheiser RS 185 RF Wireless Headphone System
  • As for good things... despite the weight these are decently comfy on the ears and head.
  • They sound fantastic, they're shockingly comfortable for their weight, the wireless range is good, and the batteries hold a good charge.
  • They aren't heavy and I wore them comfortably for hours with glasses.
  • The plush ear cushions feel very comfortable, even with long listening sessions. The top band also has two cushions that sit the phones comfortably on the vertex of the head--so much that it's hardly noticeable.
  • They squeeze my generous size head but the band will probably stretch with time.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
Sennheiser RS 185 RF Wireless Headphone System
  • Amazingly clear sound from this set of wireless headphones.
  • These sound amazing and give crystal clear wireless performance with an open back design.
  • The sound is very crisp and for a wireless solution can't be beat
  • Also note these are extremely sensitive when it comes to RF interference to the point that if my personal cellphone is inches away from the headset it will cause split second signal drop and rarely cause a ten second drop and gradually fade back to status.
  • The wireless range wasn't amazing, we have many walls (double brick) in our place, and we couldn't move outside the living/dining room without loosing the signal.

What customers say about "Power"
Sennheiser RS 175 RF Wireless Headphone System
  • 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.
Sennheiser RS 185 RF Wireless Headphone System
  • Battery life is excellent. I haven't run them all the way down yet to get an idea of exactly how long they last but I used them for three straight nights for at least 3 hours per night with no problem.
  • Has never died on me. REALLY long battery life.
  • The battery life is awesome with the 2xrechargable AA's (as opposed to the proprietary, cell batteries of the 65's). They will easily last you 20 hours in case you happen to forget to put them back on the charger.
  • Good battery life, very stable connection, easy to set up.
  • The wireless range is good, and the batteries hold a good charge. I use them for a few hours a night on average and they last a week typically.
