Beautiful quality-The RS 170 sennheiser,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sennheiser RS 170 Closed Digital Wireless Over-Ear Headphone (Electronics)
Unaccustomed to writing reviews as I am,,, I will give a brief rundown of the sennheiser RS 170. I bought these through Amazon. I had to consider the price, how would they work through a PC and could I figure what cables and adapters would I need. The sennheiser rs 170 set arrived a few days after order (well done Amazon). I opened the packaging and felt somewhat overwhelmed. I don't know anything about audio technology. I need not have worried. I figured out that you just plug the base unit into the headphone socket on the PC. Eager to test them out I gave them a `generous' five minute charge. I pulled up Media player from Windows 7 and waited with baited breath. Nothing. You have to switch the unit on! I pressed the relevant button and ...WOW. I am a night person, I like to listen to music during the hours you are probably asleep, or trying to sleep if it wasn't for that noisy neighbour!! Fantastic sound, very loud, clear, wander about making your curry supper, Black Sabbath full blast at three in the morning. No upset neighbours. Perfect. I have to say (I was a musician and love to listen) these phones are the best buy I have made through Amazon. They are simple to use, give great quality sound, do not force others to listen to your noise, easy to set-up, expensive but worth it. For those like me who are not sure about "jacks, optical connectors, adapters" don't worry. I have a Desktop PC using Realtek HD (analogue) Audio. These sennheiser rs 170's plug straight into your PC and work from the get-go. Buy these phones, if you never buy another thing again, buy these phones. You will be happy.
