Wireless headphones come in many shapes and sizes but few offer better home theater performance than the RS 170. This wireless headphone system is made up of a pair of wireless headphones (HDR 170) and a multi-purpose transmitter (TX 170) which also functions as an 'easy-charge' cradle and docking station. The RS 170 also features a Dynamic Bass Boost and Surround Sound simulation mode for edge-of-your-seat excitement with your favorite music and movies!

The RS 170 utilizes KLEER's uncompressed digital wireless audio transmission (it sounds wired!), offering a range of up to 260 feet, audiophile-grade sound and reception to four optional pairs of Sennheiser KLEER headphones. Never fuss with tuning again thanks to automatic, interference-free pairing between the headphone and transmitter.

An exceptionally detailed, full-bodied sound reproduction is pumped into the listeners ears, filling the sealed, private earcups with liquid smooth audio. The headphones' leatherette earpads and headband cushions deliver outstanding comfort while their closed, around-the-ear design prevents sound leakage. In a high-definition age, this one is a must-have.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.

General Features

Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
18 - 21,000 Hz
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
32 ohms
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Secondary Color
A color that compliments the main color of the product.

Best overall deal!!

February 9, 2014

This product is everything that the salesman at BestBuy told me it would be, if I ordered it from them at a MUCH higher cost! I am very pleased with the performance, sound, and quality and did appreciate the price this company offered. I can't rate the durability when I've only had this product for a few weeks.

I just got my RS 170 and I love it to pieces. I can now watch my movies on my giant screen and blow myself away with the sound and not disturb the old folks upstairs. No, seriously... I wore the phones upstairs because I live in the downstairs and the clarity and sound was still in tact and I put them on my sister's head and she was amazed at the quality of the sound and at such a distance. Now we can both enjoy watching a great flick on Friday nights, my level of listening and her level, no more squabbling over the volume. Thank you Sennheiser for your recommendation for the RS 170.

Very good product

January 16, 2014

I purchased these for my hard of hearing, handicapped husband. Wow, what a difference this has made to him. He can now enjoy TV and his music with surround sound. He loves them and so do I. I use them to listen to my favorite music. Very high quality product and sound is tremendous. Only problem is the on and off switch is a little inconvenient for him. Has hard time getting into such a narrow spot. Controls are hard to see as they are all black.
