Sennheiser RS160, 170 ,180... Anyone? - Page 28

post #406 of 457

I'm pretty sure its because they have a small delay. Not noticeable when for lip-synching with a movie, but probably not ideal in a recording environment. I'm pretty sure the actual delay time is listed somewhere earlier in the thread, 25ms rings a bell but I could well be wrong.

Thanks, that makes sense now that you mention it.  I guess I should go with wired headphones.

Hi Rosmadi,

 

Hope you can assist.

I just bought from AMAZON.de the RS180

 

You mentioned in the earlier advice that the Bandwidth of 2400  - 2483.5 Mhz is for RS160/170/180

 

Can you urgently advice if the RS180 I just bought today 17th August 2013 from Amazon Germany can be used in Singapore. And if I can't use it in Singapore what can be done about it .

 

Would really appreciate you prompt response .  

 

Thank you very much.

Will there be a wireless successor to RS 180 or RS 220?
Anything in the sub $300-400 bracket planned for 2013/2014?

Hi tapedeck,

 

Yes, you may use your RS 180 in Singapore even though you bought it via Amazon Germany. All of our RS 160/170/180 models utilize Kleer's digital wireless audio transmission operating over the 2.4GHz bandwidth. 

 

As mentioned, the 900 MHz band (925 - 935 MHz) is mainly used by cellular mobile services in Singapore. So it's not a good idea to get the US variants of the RS 110 II and RS 120 II if you intend to use them in Singapore.

Sorry if this has already been answered but it seems like a big concern if the trasmitter really does this. I was going to purchase the RS 180 but I won't if this is truly the case. Can anyone confirm?

 

Many thanks!

Hey guys, first time poster here. I read through this thread a few years ago before I bought my RS160's. I've got a few questions that I hope someone (Rosmadi?) can help me with, but first an observation; batteries matter.

 

I searched through the thread and couldn't find anything on this. After about 12 months of using the RS160, I bought an additional pair of the headphones (HDR160?). After a while I thought something was wrong with one pair, because the sound quality was less than the other pair. In the end it turns out it was the rechargeable batteries in the original pair that were the issue. As soon as I put in some new AAA's, the sound was MUCH better. Has anyone else noticed this? 

 

Anyway, on to my question...I can no longer pump the same volume through the base station as I used to be ablde to. It's flashing red and clipping at a much lower volume than it used to. It's still loud, but not quite loud enough. I'm running them from a PC into a Yamaha AMP, thenout of the AMP's headphone port into the vase station. Windows is set to pass through the audio untouched to the amp (I'm mostly using DTS/AC3 tracks). 

 

Any tips? Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi smokyjoe,

 

Normally, we'd recommend to listen at moderate levels so that you won't get the clipping at all. I won't comment on your amp but does it help if you remove it from your setup? Do you still get the same issue?

I never used to get anywhere near the volume required for clipping, but something had happened. To be certain, I've tried combinations of:

 

1. Windows PC, various software

2. Linux PC, XBMC

3. iPhone

 

All 3, I've tried running:

1. Through Yamaha amp

2. Through Fiio headphone amp

3. Direct from source.

 

I still cannot get a decent volume without clipping.flashing red. Any ideas?

Hi smokyjoe,

 

I'm not sure if we can offer a solution for this issue without inspecting your unit. Could you send it to be checked at the nearest Sennheiser service centre?

Hi globalist,

 

If the transmitter could not detect and pair with any receivers within 5 minutes, it will automatically go to 'sleep'.

Unfortunately I purchased these in December 2010, so I'm outside the 2 year warranty period. Does anyone know where to buy a stand-alone Kleer transmitter? As I have 2 sets of the headphones, I doubt it's these that are the issue, so I'm hoping a new transmitter will fix it.

Hi Rosmadi,

 

I just bought the RS 180 from aSaving (thru Amazon.com) last week, not sure if this is a authorized retailer (Is there a way to check?). The headphone is amazing!

 

Today I opened the ear pads (to change battery) and one of the plastic clips of the left ear pad was broken. It's too fragile, I turned the ear pad very slow and gentle.

 

Is it covered by the warranty? How do I contact Sennheiser for warranty?

 

Thanks,

dnguyen
