Great headphone sound goes wireless

Sennheiser's RS 180 wireless headphones let you enjoy superb sound that won't disturb family members or housemates. Advanced "Open-Aire" speaker technology delivers clear, natural-sounding detail, while the Automatic Level Control smooths out variances in volume — quiet dialog is easier to hear, and loud commercials and explosions are kept in check. The luxurious velour earpads sit around your ears to seal out external noise. And with a listening range of up to 320 feet, you can roam freely throughout your living area — make popcorn during TV commercials, look through a photo album in another room, or stay up for a late-night listening session while your spouse sleeps soundly next to you.


Exceptionally "Kleer™" wireless technology

The RS 180s use Kleer wireless technology to deliver uncompressed stereo sound. Unlike other wireless technologies, Kleer delivers lossless, CD-quality digital audio, which means you won't be able to tell the difference between these headphones and your wired ones. Multi-receiver mode allows up to four people using Sennheiser Kleer headphones to listen to the same audio source, so you can easily share music, movies, or TV shows with your friends and family. (Add-on HDR 180 headsets available separately.)

Never misplace your headphones with the multi-purpose transmitter

The multi-purpose transmitter keeps your headphones charged up and ready to go. It also doubles as a docking station, so you'll never forget where you put them. Wireless setup is easy — just connect the transmitter to a spare headphone jack or RCA audio output using the included cable. Then plug the transmitter into an AC power outlet. Automatic tuning does the rest, pairing with the headphones for interference-free sound.

Product Highlights:

  • comfortable over-the-ear design with velour padded earcups and a padded, adjustable headband
  • Kleer™ wireless technology delivers uncompressed stereo transmission over 2.4 GHz to 2.8 GHz wireless frequency range
  • multi-receiver mode enables up to four people to listen to the same source using optional Sennheiser HDR 180 add-on headsets

After doing quite a bit of research (reading product reviews - both good and bad) I settled on a pair of Sennheiser RS 180. I've been quite pleased with this product and would recommend it.

Pros: Very good to excellent sound reproduction. Easy to sit up and use.

Cons: Two - 1) Ear cup design could be larger - If they were like the cups on Sennheiser HD 518 - they'd be perfect. 2) There needs to be some visual system that allows the user to quickly determine true center point audio balance.

The product works as advertised but you can do much better with a wired solution or a separate receiver and conventional phones. Operation of the phones is complicated and the controls on the head set are almost useless without removing the phones to adjust.

Pros: decent sound and range for a wireless set

Cons: not user friendly; poor isolation from ambient sounds

Much improved from HD 120 because tuning is automatic. I got the RS 180 and the extra headset HD 180. Both can be played from the single transmitter. Sound on our streamed videos is great and much better than my theater system because you can hear the dialog with out trouble.

Pros: Great sound - dialog is now easy to understand

Cons: too bad you have to resort to earphones just to understand what is being said between actors in video

I bought the RS180 as an upgrade for my husband's RS120. The new headphones look very nice and are definitely more comfortable on the ears. Soundwise they are very good - although I really expected a bigger difference from the sound of the RS120. The only thing that I wasn't expecting is how much I can hear when sitting beside my husband. With the old headphones I didn't hear anything. With these new ones, I can definitely hear the tv show that's playing. Of course, this was the "open" option versus "closed" so I guess this is the difference. He has only used them once (it's an early birthday present) so far. I will update the review once he has used them more and has a better chance to decide how he likes them. He doesn't like the volume controls as much as he did on the older set.

Pros: Comfortable on ears

Cons: Volume controls are not easy to use. More sound leaks out than expected.

Pros: Set up, sleek look,sound quality,light weight.

Cons: volume control. I did read previous review and will place a acrilic dot on both plus and minus control. I have to take headset off now to change volume. Having said this I knew this before hand and the pros far outweigh the cons.

Very clear audio, even from far away. Comfortable. Build quality less durable than expected, but shouldn't be a problem unless they are dropped often or mishandled. Controls, as reported, are tricky to get used to, but work fine. Pairing multiple headsets can be tedious. Have a friend help by activating the base while you activate both headsets at once, then wait for both headsets to have audio.

Pros: Great sound and reach. Comfortable.

Cons: Tiny controls, tedious pairing process.

The RS180 are perfect for TV viewing without bothering others in the house. The ear cups are comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time. The sound quality is good for wireless headphones. I have not had any drops in sound but I only use the headphones about 20 feet from base unit.

Pros: Comfortable, rechargeable battery, clear sound, great price

Cons: A bit bulky

My wife and I have used Sennheiser sets for years and have loved them. This is a replacement purchase for a old set (still works, but are badly worn). The pros and cons listed below are based on that fact. Old vs New. Wish I could find "new" stock of older model for purchase.

Pros: 1. Lightweight 2.Has control buttons rather than roller, so you don't accidently change the settings by roller hitting pillow, etc. However, the buttons are so small and flat they are hard to feel.

Cons: 1. Husband has hearing loss and his balance settings automatically "pair" to my set...only volume can be controlled individually. This is a deal killer for us. 2. Automatically shuts off after 5 min, so don't plan to watch TV in the middle of the night without having to get out of bed to turn the transmitter on (developed for the seriously green). 3. Over ear pads are much smaller than previous models. 4. Buttons are hard to feel while wearing.

I have an old pair of Beyerdynamic sealed cup headphones I use for live recording and a set of open back Stax electret headphones for home listening. For home listening I find I prefer these. It is possible the Stax are better but in detail but since my high frequency hearing has diminished, these Sennheiser are great. I love the fact that these are wireless also. I have had Sennheiser phones before but they had always made my ears itchy. These are supra-aural and are quite comfortable.

Pros: Sound great, decent range, very comfortable. Reduce external sound fairly well but still do not isolate you from surroundings. Not sealed cup for live recoding outside a booth but great for home listening or TV. Bass surprisingly good for an open air phone. The big old Koss may have had more bass but not as real sounding as these.

Cons: Controls too difficult to access while wearing the headphones

I purchased the Sennheiser RS180 wireless headphones because I have a hearing loss. Watching tv and being able to hear what is being said is a real problem for me. It's also a problem for my wife because I have to turn the volume up pretty high. She has extremely good hearing so this is very annoying. These headphones have made a huge difference. Now I can hear the voices much better and my wife can have the tv volume where she wants it. The volume on the headphones can be adjusted by pushing some buttons on the rightside headphone. The volume can go much higher than I need it to be. The only minor negative issue is the way the volume is adjusted. The two buttons on the headphone the user has to push are quite small. I cannot adjust them while they are on my head. I have to remove them so I can see the buttons and then make the adjustment of volume up or down. The quality of the sound is excellent and they are very easy to hook-up to a tv. I actually move them between two different tv's in my home. Some day I may purchase a second set so I won't have to keep moving them back and forth. I highly recommend them to anyone researching wireless headphones.

Pros: Sound quality, range of volume, easy to install.

Cons: Volume buttons

Very lightweight, comfortable with good sound. do not like adjustment controls. Older model has much better method of adjustment = wheels

Pros: lightweight, adjustable fit

Cons: volume and other controls are flat - very hard to adjust w/o taking headset completely off. This is a major problem for me since I do other things while using headset - that's the reason for purchasing. I have large hands/fingers - it just luck if I can even find much less, adjust properly w/o taking headset off. The designer must think we have the skill and dexterity of a brain surgeon!!

Excellent product and when it's on sale the price is terrific. My wife has some hearing loss and after researching Headphones I choose these for her as a Christmas present. Only issue is hooking up to a TV--you have to find an audio output and I needed to buy a splitter to take the speaker outputs and feed the headphones too. Does interfere with snuggling a bit when she wears the headphones but I can keep the volume down on the TV and she listens to the headphones. Quality and appearance are definitely 5 star--if it included the splitter I'd give it 5 stars overall!

Pros: Great Sound, handy charging station, when on sale price is great

Cons: slightly bulky but that's what this style headphone is

This is our second set of Sennheiser 180 headphones with base station. We love them. We have a high end sound system in our main home theater area but our room acoustics are not great and the headphones provide much better sound quality and detail. While our listening areas are usually quiet, we like the open back as it allows us some connection with our surroundings. A big advantage to the headphones is the ability to listen to programming without intruding on anyone nearby who is not interested in hearing the content.

Pros: Great sound quality and value.

Cons: The buttons on the headphones could be better differentiated. Once you get used to operating them it is not a problem.

Headphones are clear and the sound is succinct. It takes some getting used to the "open sound" you receive due to the open webbing. Eventually, you learn that not everything you are hearing is coming from the movie or music. The ambient sounds have pros and cons: you can hear the phone or doorbell ring, but you can be distracted by other noises in the room.

Pros: Great sound, Good price, "Ear Cups" that breathe

Cons: Velour on the "Ear Cups" is not as smooth as expected. In fact, the material can be irritating and itchy after about an hour.

Tried six other wireless brands, returned them all. The RS 180 sound great, are comfortable and are easy to control. Used only for music on a newer mid-level receiver. Have had them for about one month and I will be keeping them. Wireless range a little less than I hoped for but do cover the range I need which is most of my house. These are not noise reducing headphones. Even at moderate volume I do hear background noise from (ie. people talking in the room).

Pros: Easy to set up and use.

The sound is pretty good though I think my Klipsch earbuds sound better--a lot better, too bad my earbuds aren't wireless. I needed wireless headphones so I can watch my multitude of Blu ray movies whenever I want, not just on movie night at the house and I can now watch my 3d Blu Rays at my leisure. Out of the box I was extremely disappointed with the sound, popping and crackiling at every beat of a drum or any kind of boom (something I never experienced in any headphone I've ever owned) and was about to put them back in the box when I thought that maybe it was distortion so I lowered the volume on my Denon receiver and the sound improved. Wound up having to lower it all the way to -45db. and then turn up the volume on the headphones almost to max. Got rid of the distortion. As for the wireless distance, I have a 2 story 3,000 sq. ft home and the headphones worked flawlessly as far away from the base as I could possibly get, even going outside to the house next door. As for any cons, for the money I would expect les plastic--a lot less. Also wish I could find surround sound headphones (other than the new Sony's that are in Japan).

Pros: Long Range Wireless, good sound quality

Cons: Price, build quality.

Love these wireless headphones in every way. My only complaint is I wish I could use them on my stereo while still playing the stereo at a comfortable level for others. I have an Onkyo receiver with Bose speakers for my home stereo system and my poor hearing causes me to want to listern to the system louder than others. I had hoped that these wireless headphones would allow me to listen to music or a movie at a different volume than others, but the only way I could connect the headphones to my receiver was via the headphone jack which shuts down the stereo speakers. Hence the headphones work great when I listen to a movie alone, but do not work for their intended purpose. The clarity of voice is so good, I use them all the time rather than the normal stereo speakers as long as I am alone.

I originally purchased the Sennheiser flagship wireless earphones (RS-220s) and was impressed by their build quality, the controls, their comfort, and the sturdy attractive design. Unfortunately, the RS-220s use an awful transmitter than cuts out & pops/hisses about every 20 seconds. For $500 that is unacceptable. So, I unhappily downgraded to the RS-180s. In short, these sound just as good as the 220s and never cut out or pop/hiss. They are well made but certainly a step down from the RS-220s. Overall I'm very happy with them and look forward to years of use. If Sennheiser ever fixes their 220s, maybe I'll give them another look, but until that time, the RS-180s are as nice a wireless headphone as you can buy.

Pros: -Great sound quality -Very rare for audio to drop out -Good range -Very comfortable

Cons: -Button layout is horrendous. It will take quite a bit of practice before you can adjust the volume without accidentally turning them off -Quality 'feel' is inferior to the RS-220s for both the headphones and the base

Very good sound reproduction

Sound quality is very good, but I haven't worn headsets for years, so nothing to really compare them to. I listen to music several hours a day, I listen for certain instruments and sounds. The Sennheiser 180 s miss very little compared to my speakers...bass has a different sound but I would expect that..These ear phones against 3800 dollar speakers...It s great to be able enjoy my porch swing and my music at the same time.. well worth the money. If you buy, I recommend the attenuation switch be set to no compression, my preference.

Pros: Easy set up, mobility is great, good sound, and packed by Crutchfield.

Cons: The ear pads are hot to my ears, I am a hot natured person. I've solved the problem with cloth pad covers. The markings on the headset could be raised a little more making it easier to identify the controls by touch.. that would be it....

Great product

Have had the RS 180 wireless headphones now for several weeks. Have a severe loss of hearing in my left ear and a small loss in my right ear. I have been able to adjust the volume so that I am now able to hear with both ears. Music if fantastic and I was surprised to be able to really hear so much. The staff was wonderful in helping us set up the equipment. Not much to it but enough that we had to call and got expert assistance in the set up. I am extremely pleased with my wireless headphones.

Pros: You can adjust volume to what is right for you or for each of your ears individually. No wires to get tangled up in. Headphones are comfortable.

Cons: Have to remove headphones if I want to make a change in volume. Since I am the only one using them that is really not a problem.

Great sound, little tricky synchronizing additional headset.

Pros: Great sound, range & comfort.

Cons: User Manual is pretty much useless. Little tricky to synchronizing additional headset. Had to watch Sennheiser You Tube video to figure out sync process.

These headphones work great. I have a hearing problem especially with frequencies around the female voice. I would have the TV volumn so load it would drive my wife crazy.

With these I turn the speaker volume off, remove my hearing and can hear exceptionally well with RS180's.

Only a few programs with extremely noisy background noise are a problem.

These work for me 95+% of the time.

Love EM!

Pros: Great sound Easy to use Good value for the $$

Cons: None that I have found

I use the set when on the treadmill and sound comes through without interference. It comes through outside on the patio and throughout the house. I haven't measured whether I get 300 or not but don't need that distance. The sound quality is good but could be a little better. The earpiece could also be a little more comfortable. All in all its a good set.

I have had other wireless headphones. This time I decided to spend more money to an upgrade. After reading many reviews I decided to try these. They are everything I expected them to be. I really enjoy the lack of interference. The comfort level is excellent and my, the high and low volume are smoothed our and my wife sleeps well while I am enjoying late night TV. Great product that is worth the extra $$$.

Pros: Sound, comfort, extra feature, rechargeable batteries.

Cons: A little expensive.

For us with marginal hearing this sytem is top notch. The sound quality is exactly what we were looking for. Unfortunately the engineers did not see fit to consider that people who are hard of hearing, many times are also getting up there in age and don't need the frustration of Multi Function swithches. Maybe a dollar more and they could have made the headset perfect!

Pros: Excellent sound quality.

Cons: Mulifunction switch

Let me start by saying, they are wireless. For wireless sound, this is a phenomenal product. Very nice highs, and lows met. I hear 60% more sound over the television (Samsung ES8000 60" LED HDTV). Dramatically improved over the tv speakers. The only reason for the 4 star is I OWN the RS 220s - FREAKING AMAZING SOUND. The RS 220s cost a tidy sum though by comparison. This is an easy late night tv watching pick up, or to keep the house noise down. Very comfortable too unlike other brands. Sennheiser makes them light, easy to wear, easy to recharge.

Pros: Comfort and pricing are both exceptional.

Cons: Just a few dropouts once in awhile.

What an incredible headset. I wear hearing aids and when I had an older model of the same headset, the feedback could only be avoided if I wore the headset over my hearing aids rather than my ears. Looked stupid, felt stupid and didn't work all that well. This one...wow, no feed back, wear them right over my ears with the hearing aids on and they work GREAT.

Pros: Can watch TV or listen to music with my volume setting not my wife's.

Cons: well the only con I can think of is the price, but I'd pay even more if it were more expensive. I love the quality of the sound.

Wow I can hear what women and children are saying and music from My Ipod sounds fantastic.

Pros: Theater sound quality, I fell like I'm right in the action.

Cons: Hurts My ears after a couple of hours, also bought an extra Head set and had to call tech to get it to work. Need better directions.

I am happy with this wireless. It produces a good quality sound. It is very comfy and easy to operate. I have no problem with a position of the controls. It is pricey but worth every penny. It is also quite stylish.

Pros: Goof sound quality. Comfortable. Stylish.

Cons: Price

Owned the RS 180 for 2 years, 1 month and the transmitter failed. Transmitter will not turn on.

Pros: none

Cons: Awfully expensive equipment to have fail so quickly. Might as well buy another brand than pay the repair cost.
