My everyday headphones (for home use)

Posted

Pros: Nice clear sound, found it on sale, charger is easy to use and a nice stand, very lightweight and comfortable to wear

Cons: buttons on headphones are mediocre, somewhat hard to tell if power is on or off on stand and headset

Ok, well I listed a whole bunch of pros/cons up there, so here are the other things I will mention: 1.  I got these on newegg for $220.  I ended up using them virtually for everything.  One gripe I suppose is if the volume of what you're listening to is low, maxing the volume will only do so much, and that adding an amp won't do anything.  I may have just screwed this up, but I am pretty sure the signal sent from the stand to the headphones is going to cap the volume, and the headset does the rest.  I will mention that the volume is very sufficient, but I had the idea to try an amp to improve sound. 2.  Again I am going to stress these are very lightweight...

Pros: Sound reproduction, range, comfort

Cons: Audio hum/interference

When I got these I had a set of HD-25s which I've had for a decade and I expected the same superior quality from Sennheiser, however I'm quite disappointed. I really want to love these headphones, I really do, but the interference in the headphones really destroys the experience.

The base station which acts as the charging cradle is stable and easy to use.  ...

Sennheiser RS 180 review

Pros: Good sound and range

Cons: get very warm if you wear them very long

I got these headphones to wear at night so I didn't disturb my neighbors when I was watching tv or movies at night.  I haven't used Sennheiser's other wireless headphones but these seem to put out sound nearly on par with my HD 595s.  They do get warm over extended use.  I didn't find this to be nearly as much of a problem when watching tv, I'd just take them off during comercial breaks.  I also can't say to much about the range as I only used them in my apartment(2 bedroom) but didn't notice any signal loss.  Overall I would recommend these headphones.  For the money you may do just as well with some of the lower priced sennheisers.     Thanks,   Bryan
