The tone of the RS 175 presentation is very clear so speech and dialogue becomes audible even for those with mild to moderate hearing loss. There is a Bass Boost feature that provides very strong thump as well as a simulated Surround Sound feature for enhancing film sound effects. We typically recommend leaving both features off if you are just wanting maximized speech and dialogue clarity only.
Keep in mind some flat screen TVs may only have a Digital/ Optical audio output. The Sennheiser RS 175 headphone system becomes the perfect high-end solution for a high quality wireless headphone listening experience. The long 300 ft (approx) transmission capabilities of the RS-175 model may make it more suitable for certain homes versus the RS-165 with a significantly shorter 100ft range.
The closed-back construction of the RS 175 earcups provides good noise isolation so the sound from the headphones does not 'leak' out into the room. It also isolates the headphone listener from the TV speakers or other ambient environmental noise. The Sennheiser RS175 headphones are quite lightweight and remarkably comfortable. The large sealed-back oval earcups typically fit completely around the ears on most wearers. And like the other Sennheiser 'RS' wireless models, the transmission base doubles as a charging stand for the headphones.
We think the solid construction, strong transmission range and impressive sound quality of the Sennheiser RS-175 system is top-notch for the wireless TV headphones. It's why the RS-175 perennially rates among our headphone.com staff's most highly recommended products in this entire category.
The free 2-year manufacturer's warranty direct from Sennheiser remains in effect only when the RS-175 system is proof-purchased via true authorized Sennheiser headphone dealers - like us here at headphone.com since 1995!
The Sennheiser RS 175 package does NOT include stereo RCA interconnect cables. If its needed for your particular TV, consider this Female Mini to RCA Cable 'audiophile-grade' adapter or the cheaper HeadRoom Female Mini to RCA Adapter.
For an extra RS-175 headphone so two people can listen at the same time, get the Sennheiser HDR 175 unit along with this RS 175 system for a complete 2-person wireless listening setup!
