Our take on the Sennheiser HDR 180

by Dave Bar
Sennheiser

Soft velour earpads and headband cushions make it comfortable to wear for hours.

  • up to four headsets can be used with a single transmitter
  • RF wireless receiving range: up to 320 feet
  • Kleer uncompressed audio transmission for interference-free reception and high-fidelity sound
  • left/right balance control and on/off switch
  • automatic pairing to transmitter for hassle-free operation
  • frequency response: 18-21,000 Hz
  • headphones use 2 "AAA" NiMH rechargeable batteries (included)
  • requires transmitter/base-station from RS 180 system for use
  • weight: 7.4 oz. for headphones/receiver (without batteries)
  • warranty: 2 years

Sennheiser HDR 180

Written By Anonymous, Henderson NV on Monday, May 06, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The Headset is everything we were looking for. Unfortunately the engineers decided Multi Function switches are also good for people who can' hear well. Why add the frustration of wondering if the correct function is selected for the cost of another switch? Some times people who can't hear well are also quite old and don't need another source of irritation?
Pros:
Very good quality in the sound.
Cons:
Multi Function switch

2nd set, a little tougher to figure out.

Written By I bought the primary set, and this is the 2nd pair, Parker CO on Thursday, March 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Definitely read the instructions. These require the owner to use the batteries sent - high capacity. Once both headsets have the proper battery load up, the magic begins. Great set. The bass, and especially the higher frequencies glisten with the sets. Far better than most TV speakers these days.
Pros:
Late night listening now a breeze, and with great sound to match.
Cons:
Remember to buy high capacity rechargeables. A few dollars more, but the local dirt cheap AAA batts just aren't enough push on the speakers. Causes unnecessary drop outs. Sennheiser ships a quality battery with the unit. Just don't swap out with local dept store cheapies.

Great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is my third set. First set had distortion problems after a month. Second set had same problems after 24 months and three weeks (after warrenty).I ordered a new set HDR180's head set only. The out of warrenty set was sent out to Sennheiser for repair at my cost and they sent me a complete new set (everything) at a repair cost. What great customer service. Great company. I now have two complete sets of the RS 180's. Great. I live in a apartment complex and watch alot of tv and blue ray movies and listen to alot of music so I'm very satified.
Pros:
Great sound.
Cons:
Little worried about the distortion problem may come back.

Great sound and convenience

Written By JohnD, New York, NY on Friday, September 23, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
After the burn in period these headphones deliver a great range of highs and lows with the convenience of wireless. Very simple to use, my wife and I find them very useful for watching tv, movies and especially listening to music. The ability to recharge the batteries on the dock is very nice as well and they are very comfortable to wear.

2 questions already asked

Is there any way to use these headphones to listen to music from an Ipod? I am pretty sure the answer is no, but just want to be sure I am not missing anything. [ Kit B  Feb 17, 2014 ]

  • This is simply an "extra" wireless headset for the RS 180 set which includes a transmitter + wireless headset. There is nothing to connect to this wireless headset to make it work with anything else other than the original transmitter RS 180. If you're on a budget, get a lower model of Sennheiser wireless headset+transmitter since that'll work fine with your iPod. This more expensive model is more for watching TV and movies. [ Weili   Feb 18, 2014 ]
  • Only if you plug the ipod directly into the base unit with a 3.5-mm audio connector. [ CHARLES   Feb 18, 2014 ]
  • Tough question. If you mean simply listen to an iPod from these headphones, then the answer is no. I have mine hooked up through my home theater system. I can use them with my Apple TV or mirror with them from an iPad or iPhone. I guess it would depend on how far you would go to listen to them like that. [ JEFF   Feb 18, 2014 ]
I want a new blu ray player but none of them have analog outputs anymore. How do I use the HDR180 without analog? [ Ap  Jan 05, 2014 ]
3 answers
  • Hook the HDR180 up to the analog outputs on your TV and not the Blu Ray player. TV's still come with analog audio out. This way you can listen to the Blu Ray and the TV. [ Glen   Jan 06, 2014 ]
  • We use ours by connecting to the headphone jack on an AV receiver. [ Keith   Jan 05, 2014 ]
  • Hopefully your tv has an analog out. I have vizio and have split the leadout from the tv so that I can run the hdr180 as well as the sennheiser rr840. Just make sure that you get the whole set... headphones and transmitter. The 840 is for the 102 year oldl [ roger   Jan 05, 2014 ]
