I’ve noticed, that like myself, many other music lovers prefer the experience of headphones over in-room speakers (it’s nice to know I’m not weird when it comes to this matter). Headphones are a great way to get amazing sound and needless to say, they’re the perfect solution for shared spaces. Headphones are not only perfect for music, they’re also good for home theater purposes where quiet listening environments are needed. When it comes to draping a long headphone cable across the room from a television, however, it can be quite a burden. Recently, I discovered the Sennheiser RS 175 RF Wireless Headphone System and must say, I was pretty amazed with what I read. This company has aimed to solve the problem of draping cords by offering wireless connectivity, but that’s not exactly what amazed me …
Multi-Purpose Transmitter – The multi-purpose transmitter is capable of supporting up to two pairs of headphones simultaneously.

Easy to Set Up
This system, with the wireless base station/headphone DAC unit, is super easy to set up. There are cables that are provided for two possible connections from the input source to the wireless module. It has a 3.5 mm stereo jack along with a Toslink digital input.
What others are Saying
At the time of writing this review, on Amazon, there were a total of 394 reviewers giving this product 4.4 out of a possible 5.0 stars. Amongst the pros, many people are talking about how easy the AAA batteries are to replace, how comfortable the actual headset is, how the volume and special effects are easy to control with large buttons on the headset and how nice the headphones look.
One of the cons I discovered during research involves the cable not offering the best performance. However, this is something that can easily be replaced.
The Senheiser RS 175 headphone system appears to be all they’re made out to be – they’re comfortable to wear, have amazing sound and are easy to set up. What more could you ask for in a pair of headphones? So, if you’re currently on the market for a new set of headphones, these would definitely be worth looking into.
