what cables are supplied with the headphones? 20 Nov 2014
Hi Tony, here is a full list; one stereo audio cable with 3.5 mm jack plugs, one 3.5mm to 6.3mm jack adapter, and one 3.5mm to 2 RCA plugs adapter. Other extras included in the box are two AAA batteries, two cable tidy accessories, and 4 country adapters for the mains supply (UK, EU, AU, US). Hope this helps, Rob.
Do these transmit through walls or just line of site? i want to be able to walk from room to room and my walls are 2 foot thick, was looking at the160 25 Apr 2014
They transmit through walls - but I tend to find that I lose connection if the signal has to travel through more than two.
is the rs 180 compatable with tv 6 Jul 2014
if plugged into TV headphone socket it works ok but no sound will come from speakers ie no one else can hear. I plug mine into the Freesat box Phono out socket this works best as the TV speaker sound is not affected. There is a slight delay in sound but hardly noticeable. Hope this helps
Can the headphones be adjusted for volume separately - on each earpiece. My husband has a problem with some deafness in one ear. Thankyou 9 Jan 2014
Tj, yes they can. There are two balance buttons, to balance the volume between the left and right earphone, alongside the volume up and down and on/off button. So 5 buttons in all, all on the right earphone. Hope this helps. Dave.i
How much sound leakage is there with the RS 180's? Is it noticeable/disconcerting to others in the same room? 23 Jun 2014
Well, I'm 63 with good hearing. I use mine so that my other half is not disturbed by the TV once she has gone to bed. These phones are amazing (clarity, tone, bass and treble (they are expensive and German after all, just like a Mercedes!!)) I would say that there is no leakage whatsoever. You would have to be a headbanger to have them so loud that they leaked enough to disturb anyone else in the room. If so then you would damage your hearing. The idea, in my opinion, is that noise from outside the phones, from the room, does not impinge upon what you are listening to, i.e. they block out other noises in the room so that you can listen perfectly to conversation in a film or music from radio/Cd's. They do this superbly. I don't think that you will be able to wear them with the volume set to over 50%, so really the question of 'sound leakage', in my opinion, would not occur. If you need to have them so loud that leakage occurs you will need medical treatment later in life. Hopes this helps.
bought a pair of the 180's & i cant walk around my home without drop out 4 at least 5 seconds, is there away 2 get a better signal or do i return them 31 May 2014
Make sure base station is away from any interference, I had mine next to router and had same problem, relocated and now its fine. Ideally needs to be isolated best u can. Hope this helps, it did for me.
Does the RS180 transmitter have to be plugged into the mains or does it have its own rechargeable battery.? Thanks Andrew 5 Oct 2014
"Does the RS180 transmitter have to be plugged into the mains. Yes the docking station does need to be plugged into the mains. does it have its own rechargeable battery. only the headphones have rechargeable batteries which are supplied. the docking station does not need batteries
Are they able to be linked to sound source such as a Network Player (in which case I could use airplay) or does it have to be an amplifier. 15 Jul 2014
The TX 180 transmitter can be connected to any line-out jack of mobile or home audio devices. If you can plug headphones into it, you can plug the transmitter into it.
Does The RS 180 interfere with WiFi 2 days ago
Hi, Short answer; technically yes, but not in a way that causes problems. I.e, these headphones will not slow down your internet speed, cause you to lose signal etc. These headphones operate on the 2.4 GHz wireless range, meaning that like your printer, router and so on, they will occupy a frequency on that wireless range along with all your other devices, without interfering with them. Sometimes interference does occur, but this is rare (I have never had problems with WiFi related to my RS180's), and most modern routers are able to adjust their frequency automatically to avoid congestion on your wireless network. If a problem does occur, there are some steps you can take with these headphones. Some more info is on the Sennheiser customer service page: https://sennheiserusa.happyfox.com/kb/article/219-there-is-wireless-signal-or-wifi-interference-rs160-rs170-rs180 Hope this helps, Rob
It connects to a phono socket the same way as wired headphones would be
