Sennheiser RS 185 Headphone Review

 
4.1
Pros: New lossless wireless audio technology, Two-year warranty, Lightweight design
Cons: Wireless 'phones can't play loud
Verdict: I've auditioned a number of wireless Sennheiser models over the years and was always satisfied with the sound. Sennheiser claims their latest 'phones are better than ever, and the RS 185 is the best sounding of the twelve wireless models the company currently offers.

Sennheiser RS185

 
4.0
Pros: Very comfortable, Good sound quality, Reliable wireless with good range
Cons: Lower frequencies could be a bit tauter
Verdict: The Sennheiser RS185 are wireless headphones, but quite unlike the sea of wireless sets you'll see elsewhere. They don't use Bluetooth, but a bespoke RF system that offers much better range and an uncompressed audio stream. That's right, these are ‘hifi' wireless headphones.

Verdict: Conclusion Sennheiser maintains its lead in wireless headphones with the marvellous RS 185. The open design limits their use to environments where you will be alone - they spill too much audio to use them in the same room as someone else (if you prefer closed, consider the RS 175 model instead).

Wireless Headphones RS-185 : Sennheiser RS-185

 
4.0
Verdict: These quality wireless headphones from Sennheiser can take input from RCA jacks or Optical. The latter means that if your TV has optical out those of us with less than 20:20 hearing can now hear that murmured dialogue so favoured in US movies.

Sennheiser RS 185

 
4.0
Pros: reception battery life sound ambient sound
Cons: a bit bulky some weight vs on ear
Verdict: Replacing a pair of Sennheiser 450x with these. Reception around the house is MUCH better and am not getting the battery warning I kept getting with the 450x. Also like the recharge stand vs the 450x recharge.

Sennheiser Rs185

 
5.0
Verdict: The whole point of the Sennheiser RS185 is that they get you better sound quality and comfort than most other wireless headphones. Sure enough, they deliver for the most part. An open-back design gives them a nice sense of scale, so that even with a healthy dose of bass on tap they don't ever seem...

5.0
Verdict: My hearing has been failing over the last few years and hearing aids didn't help much. I owner an older, less expensive set of earphones and was struggling to hear with the volume cranked-up. So, I invested in a set of Sennheiser RS 185's.
