Sennheiser RS 180 Review

The good experiences start with the un-boxing of the headphones. The two inner boxes and the inner plastic container are very well designed and built like tanks.

The Sennheiser rs 180 is wonderful piece of kit. You can use this wi-fi headphones to watch TV or listen to your hi-fi and it will deliver amazing quality sound every time.

The headphone themselves are powered by two A A A NiMH batteries (rechargeable) and a transmitter that connects to your output device. The set up for the Sennheiser rs 180 is not rocket science since it is as simple as plug and play.

I have reviewed the Sennheiser rs 130 in the past and this was a great upgrade from that. Every aspect of build quality for this headphone is excellent. Everything is well designed and well constructed and as such, it all feels very solid.

One of the test included to review the Sennheiser rs 180’s sound quality, was to watch a Blu-ray movie (Avatar) with the headphones. During the movie there was no extraneous background noise at all: no hissing, no hums, no snaps, crackles, or pops. The only noise that came out of those headphones was the magnificent cinematic sound from the source.

The rs 130 was also very comfortable to wear over a long period of time. I had mine on for the entire Avatar movie and did not want to take the headphones off at any time.

This is exactly the kind of headphones you would want if you want to watch a movie at night or sit out on a summer night on the deck with a Bud light without fear of waking up your neighbours. (However, be advised that these are open phones and provide absolutely no isolation from ambient noise. Which means if there is a noisy neighbour with a lawn mower, you will hear it.)

The Sennheiser rs 180 also gave back a positive test on wi-fi function. I heard some people say that the wi-fi was a problem, however, I tested this out in my two storey house and back yard and got perfect reception 97% of the time.


  • Good build quality
  • Comfortable fit for prolong usage.
  • Exceptional sound quality
  • Long lasting rechargeable battery
  • Extended range of wireless transmission.


  • Small control buttons on the right side of headphones, in order to operate have to be removed from the head.

Overall, the Sennheiser rs 180 is a brilliant Wi-Fi headphone ideal for people who want to enjoy isolated acoustic bliss.
