Sennheiser RS160, 170 ,180... Anyone? - Page 8

post #106 of 443

Yeah that's the whole point of the SU-DH1, it remixes DD/DTS 5.1 sources into simulated surround stereo, using "HRTF-like" algorithms.

Proud owner of a pair of Senn RS 170 and RS 180. Bought the RS170 with transmitter and an RS180 cans alone at a local IT show recently.  Got 2 cans so that can share with wife while watching late night movies without disturbing my 2 young boys.

 

Pretty happy with the sound quality, not much of an audio-phile so can't really comment critically.  Overall, pretty please with the quality and clarity.

 

One stupid question though, is there any doctors here who can advise if there is any health issues since we are sending RF literally straight to our brains?

 

Thx!

Hi Yufee. Welcome to Head-Fi and sorry about your wallet Have a few questions for you.

1. Does it happen anything in the rs180 headset when you hit the surround or bass button on the rs170 transmitter?

2. Can you hear any difference in soundquality rs180 vs rs170 headset?

3. Have you tried the rs170 pads on the rs180? Did it get more bass or is it the same?

Have been a little curious about this since i bought the rs180.

 

I`m no doctor but i havent noticed any difference in my head the few monts i have used the rs180.

Shit maybe it will start to grow antennas on my head Lets hope it dont.

I doubt there'd be any health problems....

If you've been using a mobile for years & have had no health complications, then you've no reason to worry about this format.

 

When I was deciding on RS180 v RS170 (among others wireless options) I contacted dozens of online/offline retailers & Senn.de.

The few that had done direct comparisons, said there was definitely a SQ difference between the 180 and 170.

 

They said the 170's simulated surround was somewhat of a gimmick --versus something like a mixamp or su-dh1 etc.

And if you don't need closed cans to keep ambient noise out & headphone noise in, then the RS180 is a "no-brainier".

 

Oh and something about the bass boost, can't recall now, can't be bothered digging-up all my emails/notes etc.

All I know is "on-balance" the RS180 was the best option, even if the focus is gaming/movies:

 

1) "if" you don't have a lot ambient noise where you live....

2) "if" you're not likely to disturb others living in close quarters.

Hi Yufee,


I'm not a doctor but do rest assure that our wireless headphones are safe and fully compliant to all conductive and radiated emission tests under CE and FCC requirements.

Hi Rosmadi, do you know if there is any plans for making a in-ear kleer device at Sennheiser probably called cx-w1 or something?

If it is, can you say anything about realeasedate?

post #112 of 443

At the moment, we do not have an IEM Kleer device to offer but I'm sure our product management team may consider this wearing style in the near future. Have you checked out our MX W1? They're ear buds equipped with “Twist-to-fit” system and utilising Kleer digital wireless technology.

Hi Rosmadi,

 

Thx for the assurance...although I was hoping it would come from a medical doctor and not a Senn employee :-)  Still I'm happy that you are in this forum.  Great stuff you guys doing in Sg, keep it up!

post #114 of 443

Thanks for the reply, yes i know the mx-w1 is there, but i`m not much of an earbudfan, but i may be getting it and try to customize it if not the cx-w1 is coming soon.

Hi Very Legal,

 

Sorry for taking some time to get back to you.  Anyway, I will answer some of your questions:-

 

1) Yes, when you hit the surround and bass button, it affects the sound on the rs180.  However, I'm not sure if it sounds `better' or `worse'.  Basically when I watch movies, I turn both of the effects `on'.  When listening to music, both are `off'.

 

2) Yes, I prefer rs180. Its more `musical' imo.

 

3) Havent tried that....will revert after i try it.

 

Cheers!

Hi Very Legal and jalyst

 

Been a busy weekend as Singapore just finished hosting the F1 and I was out partying the last 3 days :D" width="" />" class="bbcode_smiley" height="" src="http://files.head-fi.org/images/smilies//biggrin.gif" title="" class="bbcode_smiley" height="" src="http://files.head-fi.org/images/smilies//biggrin.gif" title=":D" width="" />" width="" /> Finally I tried swapping the 2 headphones pads and I was amassed there is significant differences in sound signature between the 2 pads!

 

My impression is that the rs180 pads exhibits clarity while rs170 pads are really meant for action movies with deep bass.

 

Hope this little info helps those of you who are interested.  Do let me know if anyone of you want me to experiment further.

 

Cheers and hopefully you could also get an opportunity to experience it yourself as I'm quite bad in communicating/ reviewing like the professionals do.

I know this is a rather old thread, I'm planning to get the RS180 but the transmitter is holding me back. I know you can't operate it through battery hence is not portable. I'm wondering if is possible to use the RS 160 transmitter with rs 180?
