5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously impressive wireless listening, 11 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Sennheiser HDR 180 Additional Digital Wireless Over-Ear Headphones (Without Transmitter) (Electronics)
I bought these to go with the Sennheiser RS160 set. The Sennheiser site implied that virtually all Kleer devices would work in conjunction, but putting a qualifier before "all" didn't really inspire me with confidence. I saw the question asked on forums about whether the HDR180 would work with an RS160 set but never saw the question answered! Well they do work together.
I have to say the headphones sound great but as with hi-fi, the law of dimishing returns sets in. So I initially had the RS120 and then got the RS160 and the improvement in quality of sound for music was staggering. The difference between the 160 and 180 is very noticeable to me and although not subtle, I still think the 160s deliver pretty good acoustics. If I'm listening to TV or playing my guitar I'll pick up which ever headset is nearer, but if it's music I pick up the 180s.

Instructions on synching an RS160 and HDR180 are non existent, but ensure both the transmitter and headphones are off, then hold down the buttons on each simultaneously for up to about seven seconds and they should start flashing in sync.

I think the real reason I wrote this review, was if you already have the a RS160 set, and need an additional set of headphones, consider a HDR180 (but be aware it doesn't have the same input to charge the batteries, so you'll have to charge the batteries outside of the headset). If you already own an HDR180 and wanted an additional headset, you'd already know how great they are and wouldn't be reading this!

[Please note this product doesn't work on it's own, you would also need an RS160, RS170 or RS180]

Thank you thank you thank you - I would have NEVER figured this out! Pressing both buttons until the sound starts then let go.

I love these freaking headphones and bought two sets and maybe I'll buy a third.

The sound is just fan-freaking-tastic. But the instructions are horrific, and in so many different languages. I wonder if the instructions are as bad in Russian.

Again, thanks!
