Sennheiser RS 175 Reviews

comfortable, good sound

By Robert
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-16

Great for TV sound, very convenient to use. Comfortable to wear, even lying down. Only deficiency is that it has no balance, a factor for those of use with unequal hearing loss. As noted in many reviews, this is not for audiophiles, but right for most of us.

Cuts out

Sennheiser has a great reputation. I own a pair already. However, this model (RS175) although a great fit and sound, cuts out for a second continually making listening a disaster.

Great product!

This is our second set of Sennheiser RS 175 headphones. It's helped my husband a lot. Makes everything clear for him without turning the volume of the TV up.

purchased for a gift...a little confusing to set up, but then I am not good with electronics...wish the cables were a bit longer...have to set it up on the floor...we have a wall mounted flat screen tv...and cables don't reach the end table by the sofa...also the controls on the ear muffs are a bit of a hassle...have to take them off to adjust sound...but nice and clear sound... for me I can hear the tv without it blaring in my face...and he can have it as loud as he wants....thank you.

I have a pair of last generation & am happy. This one has a little better surround sound & captures sound that is missed through the air. Very comfortable.

if your older or have young kids, this might be a must!

We bought an older version of this model for my father in-law how has a had time hearing like 3 xmas ago. We loved it so much we bought a pair for ourselves. Having younger kids we were finding that it was tough to watch some Netflix shows and Movies later at night without waking the kids up. Now we can watch tv late at night again and catch up and enjoy our fav shows/movies. The only issues we had was the digital audio jack would not always work depending on what streaming service we were watching. It could of had something to do with our TV not sure and didn't really matter because I just hooked it up through the RCA and it worked fine with everything and still sounded really, really, good.

Worth the price

My son uses Sennheiser Lavalier's so I trust the brand. Bought these to replace a different brand that wore out and really loving the quality of the Sennheiser. I like that the batteries are replaceable, it was pretty easy to set up, and controls on the headphones are easy to use while wearing. They're a little snug but not uncomfortably so and the noise cancellation is excellent, sounds excellent, and it's a comfortable fit on my ears even when I wear them for several hours. They hold a charge really well. Very happy with my purchase.

Headphones Make for a Quiet Room

These headphones are perfect when watching TV but others are not watching, and prefer to not hear the TV's audio. They were fairly easy to hookup after you find the right TV port connection. There's a switch on the charging stand that needs to be set for digital or analog. These provide wonderful sound.

Your article states the RS 175 comes with a pair of headphones, then the description states you must order the 2cnd set and pay extra! Which is correct? You better change this misleading info!
Asked by: Kenneth
Headphones have a left and right speaker and are referred to as a pair because of that. I understand how that could be interpreted to sound like 2 sets of headphones are included but that is how they have been referred to for a long time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I want to use the RS 175 system to monitor the output of an analog mixer that is part of a home recording setup. How much latency can I expect between the time the signal appears at the mixer and the time it reaches the headphones? I can't find any specs on latency.
Asked by: Frank
there is no noticeable latency, as the RS 175 is designed for home entertainment system. They are optimized for Movies, TV and game playback and sound great. However that eq curve is not great for recording as it enhances bass response and dialogue. I would suggest one of Sennheiser's studio headphones for recording.

Can anyone compare the sound quality of the RS 175 to the Sennheiser HD 450BT wireless bluetooth headphones?
Asked by: Frank
After a search, I am not finding much differences in audio. The main difference between the 2 will be the Wireless Connectivity. The 450BT provides Bluetooth to connect wirelessly to any other Bluetooth capable device. The RS 175 operates on Radio Frequency (RF) that interacts wirelessly with the Base. You will need to connect your audio source to the Base to transmit audio to the packaged headphones.

Yamaha RX-a730 has a 3-port RCA type av out (video/left/right). Is this where i would connect the base unit?

Yes, it should work. You would have to assign what audio goes out of the RCA connection if you have multiple sources you'd like to listen to.
