Are the Sennheiser RS 180 headphones compatible with the RS 170 transmitter base?

 

Kinda feel dumb for not doing the research before but ordered them figuring it would since they are pretty close design.

 

180s

170s

Thanks in advance.

 

Sorry if this has been asked before but I did search but that didn't help.

Welcome to HF! 

I've heard that's possible. Have you emailed sennheiser? Somebody can confirm this?

If you read through the User Manual to both the 170 and the 180 headphones, you will see that the Sennheiser MX W1 headphones can be associated to the transmitters of both the 170 and the 180.

This should indicate that that both the two types can be associated to the other type's transmitter.

 

Ok sweet, any idea how to link them? I turned on headphones and base like normal but they weren't on the same 'page'.

Just got email which says to hold base and headphones power button for 7 secs simultaneous. That seems like it did the trick.

 

Thanks again.
