High-quality audio not only makes you feel pleasant, but it can also enhance the overall experience of your entertainment. That’s precisely the reason why you enjoy an in-theater experience like you do at the movies. It’s because you feel that you are fully engaged with the video and audio in that dark, closed room.
Several sound systems have been developed over the last few years and these have included technologies such as Dolby Digital and 3D Surround. Most of which have now made it into our home entertainment. While we’re on the subject of home entertainment, let me tell you that rapid advancements have taken place both in the video and audio spheres. These days, HDTV/LED televisions are so popular that people enjoy quality high definition entertainment at the comfort of their homes. All without having to go to the movies.
However, while it initially sounds perfect, there is a slight problem here. People often (unintentionally) end up disturbing others in the family when they are watching their favoriteTV shows with the loud sound on their TV. Which means that they have no choice but to listen to what you are listening to. Sometimes that’s okay and sometimes it’s not.
Fortunately, that’s where wireless TV headphones enter the scene. Wireless headphones isolate the main sound from the TV unit and deliver it directly to your ears so other people can remain undisturbed.
There are many brands out there on the market that sell wireless headphones for TV, and in today’s review, we are going to talk about one of the most LOVED headphones for TV, RS 170 Wireless Headphones by Sennheiser.
Sennheiser is 60-year-old company and leads the market in private audio equipment such as headphones, headsets, microphones and many others.
Comprehensive Review of Sennheiser RS 170 Wireless Headphone
RS 170 by Sennheiser are over-the-ear headphones suitable for HDTV and home theater systems.
Design: Build quality of these headphones are great and they have a sturdy grip.
You can use these wireless headphones with a wide range of devices such as TVs and home theater systems. To start using these headphones with your TV, just plug in the transmitter cable into the output of your TV or home theater and that’s it. You are now ready to go.
Sound Performance: The RS 170 delivers excellent sound performance, packed with exciting features such as dynamic bass and surround sound that transforms your audio listening into an enjoyable experience. And it doesn’t just have to be you, listening. 4 other headphones can be paired up with the same transmitter, which means that multiple people at your house can enjoy edge-of-the-seat personalized entertainment. The RS 170 also uses KLEER technology, which enables CD-quality listening and blocks interference from other wireless devices in your home.
Range coverage: Being wireless headphones, the operating range is one of the important aspects to be considered while choosing good wireless headphones for your TV. The RS 170 offers a range of 260-feet which is good enough to make sure that the sound is heard from even a distant corner of your home. While there are headphones which offer a longer range than the RS 170, most of these are overkill because you really don’t need a long range while you are watching TV. After all, you are most likely going to be in front of it. 😉
Comfort to ears: The RS 170 fits nicely into your ear by sealing the ear with its cushions, which offer a personal audio output which can be both profound and immersing. The well-designed headband ensures that there is no leakage of sound out from around the ears.
Charging / Docking Station: These models comes along with the docking / charging stations which ensure that these headphones are always charged for the next usage.
