Powerful Sound
Smart, contemporary design

Sennheiser RS 170 Wireless Headphones

Enjoy your home cinema to its full potential. This wireless headphone system delivers just the powerful sound audiophile home cinema fans have waited for – with impressive surround sound. A full surround speaker system is the ideal for home cinema, but running it at full-volume isn’t always practical. Also great for playing CDs, FLACs and MP3s.

  • Experience big picture sound at home without having to move any furniture
  • Let the Dynamic Bass and Surround Sound listening modes dazzle you
  • After the show, just put the headphones back on the “easy-charge” cradle of the multi-purpose transmitter
Learn more about the RS 170

Just plug the transmitter into your output device (ie.an amplifier), switch on the wireless headphones and you have created your personal 80 m deep (line of sight) sound zone. Virtual soundscapes built on a powerful bass unfold for you – and for your friends, if you’re generous enough. The transmitter can serve up to four pairs of headphones. A closed-back (sealed) design means that there is no sound leakage and you can isolate yourself from your surroundings.

Listen Wirelessly
Features
  • Closed, ‘around the ear’ wireless headphones with Kleer's 2.4GHz uncompressed or lossless audio transmission - so the signal you put in is the signal you get out
  • Digital transmission means that this system is less susceptible to hiss or interference
  • Powerful neodymium magnets for clear and detailed audio reproduction
  • Multi-purpose transmitter - also functions as 'easy-charge' cradle and docking station – re-charges using a simple three pin charge point at the top, which connects to three strips inside the headband
  • Multi-receiver transmission - up to 4 people listening to the same source
  • Optional Dynamic Bass and Surround Sound listening modes
  • Ergonomic and adjustable headband for an excellent and secure fit
  • Leatherette ear pads and well-padded headband cushions offer outstanding comfort
  • No set-up required – just plug and play. No need to manually tune or fiddle with different FM bands
Did you know?

Kleer technology is a serious competitor to Bluetooth in terms of signal reliability, longer battery life and overall sound performance. It is also robust enough to permit multiple listeners from a single source. The difference between the Kleer-powered set and traditional cordless headphones is dramatic. Typical cordless cans broadcast using FM, which has a much lower resolution than CD, and background hiss and interference can also affect the sound.

Proprietory (manufacturers’) or SCART adaptors may be used so that the headphones do not cut the TV sound for others in the same room.

Sennheiser recommends this headphone for...

...all movie lovers who want a sound from their system as vivid and impressive as Cinemascope – and may also want to keep the peace when listening to loud movies late at night when everyone else is trying to get some sleep. Also ideal for those with mild hearing loss who would prefer to listen to higher volume levels than their TV companions. This is the perfect gift idea for an elderly relative.

Compatibility

The HDR 170 headphones and the TX 170 transmitter can be connected to any line-out jack on home audio devices.
