The Sennheiser RS 175 headphones are wireless and designed expressly for at-home use. With home-theatre ready inputs, they’re the perfect accessory for homebodies who enjoy immersing themselves in television and movies. These aren’t made for listening to your favorite podcast on your morning commute since they need to be within range of the included dock. But if you’re at home, put these on, relax onto your favorite chair, and finish that audiobook you’ve been meaning to get to.
The headphones themselves feature an adjustable padded band and comfortably cushioned earpieces. On the right earpiece, you can find volume and bass controls. There’s also a button to enable a surround sound mode. It’s not quite true surround sound (since it’s coming from headphones, but it does the trick, according to reviewers). The headphones also have a power button, so they can be shut off when not in use. An LED battery indicator also lets you know when they’re running out of power.
The headphones also have a Bass Boost feature with pumps up the bass sound for those who want it louder.
Other than that, the headphones are wireless but need to be within a range of the receiver, so you can’t just head out the door with these.
