Video: Sennheiser RS 170 wireless headphones

I've written about car audio for Crutchfield since 2003, after four years as Crutchfield Sales Advisor, and 10 years as a music teacher. I'm an avid music listener, with a real love of classical and film music. I love having a great system in my car, and I'll still match the system in my 98 Ford Ranger (may it rest in piece) up against anything else I've heard for great SQ. I attended West Virginia University, where I received a Master's Degree in Music Performance and a Bachelor's Degree in History. Let's Go Mountaineers!

I had the opportunity recently to use the Sennheiser RS 170 wireless headphones. I like these headphones a lot, first because they were wireless. Gave me the freedom to get away from the stereo, go work in the kitchen, sit on the back deck, listen to a football game. I could ride my bike downstairs and even get up and go get a drink of water, all without having to worry about having a cord.

I really like the over the ear design of these headphones. It blocks out a lot of noise and they're also very comfortable because of that.

The sound quality is really quite good. And it's a CD quality stereo sound with very little of the hiss you sometimes get with wireless headphones. I heard all the details I'm used to listening to on all my classical records.
