RS170 are a good first time buy

Date:January 10, 2012
Product Highlights: Appearance, Sound Quality
Unit has good quality sound, but control (volume up & down, audio adjust) buttons are very small and hard to control when earphones are on head. Other then that charging system is good, and unit has a nice light weight. Ears & head fit is good. Would recommend to anyone who needs good quality wireless earphones.

Excellent Sound Quality and Range

Date:April 23, 2013
Product Highlights: Sound Quality
I have these plugged into my A/V Receiver and the sound quality is superb !
Range is great also. I have the base located on the main floor and the headphones worked w/o issue everywhere on the 2nd floor as well as the basement. I was thoroughly impressed with the range. Line of sight is NOT AN ISSUE.
The surround sound and added base provide a noticeable difference and work well depending on your source material.
I don't think they are worth the full asking price but if you can get these on sale you won't be disappointed.

Easy set up

Date:March 5, 2011
Product Highlights: Appearance, Value for Money, Sound Quality
The purchase of the Sennheiser RS 170 was my first venture into wireless headphones.I find the clarity of sound and distance of reception these headphones provide is excellent. Using the sound controls built into the right hand earphone does take some getting used to. I also like the the fact that the the batteries are being recharged whenever the earphones are resting on the base unit. I highly recommend these headphones. I'm even eyeing the RS 180s for some future purchse.

Line of sight missing from description

Date:March 8, 2011
Description indicates distance covered by headphones, but does not state "line of sight." That info is mentioned in tiny letters mid-way down the back of the box. Important to know as items with headphones can't be returned if opened. Not a pro with electronics, so not sure if this was something "I should know" without being told.
