Just unboxed this and tested it out. I gotta say I don't understand some of these reviews from people saying how much they suck and how cheap they are and how poor the range is. The sound is pretty much the best headphone sound I've heard, short of the sound you can get out of $400-500 MM550s or Dr. Dre Beats or other noise cancelling+SRS headphones. But the range is fantastic for my needs. I can go everywhere in my 3000 sq/ft house with no droppage or static. I can go to the end of my 50 ft. driveway and then it starts breaking up. So, can I get 300M or whatever they claim here? No, but that's line of site I'm sure. I can get everywhere in my 3 story home and all the way around the outside of the house and the garage.

I also was able to pair up a second pair of RS 180s very easily. I don't get the guy who claimed the manual stunk. It said how to do it...I did it...it worked. Essentially, hold the ON button down on all the headsets for 7+ seconds, then hold the ON button on the base down for 7 seconds...then within 30 seconds, the blinking levels off and they're paired. I don't understand what was so difficult. Perhaps the instructions I got on the CD/DVD it came with were more updated?

There was also a review somewhere about how cheap they felt and about the sound leakage. I guess that's a matter of personal preference because I found them just fine for me. I'm thinking it was a design decision such that if they'd made them solid-feeling aluminum or something, they'd be uncomfortably heavy. As it stands, they're super light and the light, puffy velvety ear cups are very smooth and comfy. They do leak a tiny bit of the sound, but it's not quite as bad as someone let on.

These are great headphones. I'm very happy with them with two exceptions. As many people have noted, the volume and power buttons are small and you have to take the head phones off to adjust them. My other issue is that the headphone say in the description that they include a charger, but they don't. (I call Sennheiser about this, and they said they were going to update the description, so perhaps you won't notice this.) But know that if you have multiple headphones sharing a single base, you won't be able to charge them at the same time. I bought a separate set of rechargeable AAA batteries to ensure i would never be stuck without a charged headset.

I own a set of Sennheiser RS 170 with transmitter headphones and I watch the sennheiser video that said you could add up to 4 headphones So I decide to get a extra set of headphones and upgrade to the HDR 180 headphones . So I got them in a couple days put the battery's and turn them on nothing happen no sound. So I email Senneiser and they told me that only the HDR 170 work only on the 170 transmitter and the HDR 180's on the 180 transmitter . So I hope this will help anybody who may be thinking about adding a extra set of headphones who already have either the 170 or the 180 headsets . PS I highly recommend sennheiser headphones I really enjoy mine and some people have complain about the buttons. I have found after a while of using them you will learn where the buttons are and can turn the volume up and down with no problem at all.

Syncs perfectly with my RS180. Very easy to set up. Now we have 2 headphones. Excellent for watching movies in the evening as we have a young child who wakes if the TV's on a little too loud. And the sound is much better than the built-in speakers of our Sony HD TV (bought November 2010).

Highly recommended. Also definitely sounds better than the RS170 (which we trialled and returned in exchange for the RS180).

Update September 2011
---------------------

Having used the item for 10 months, it is still working seamlessly with 2 headphones to 1 base unit. Sounds is still amazing. Battery life is fantastic - can easily watch several movies on a single charge.

Delighted with the product.

I have owned this system for almost a year now. I have connected them to everything from my home theater system, mp3 player with adapter, to my computer. They are by far the best wireless headphone system I have ever used. Just for the comfort alone I would recommend this system. For a wireless system, there is no hissing or popping one would see in other systems of equal quality. I am now looking forward to expanding this system with more headphones as the transmitter will support several units. Independent controls found on my headset pushed with power of my AV system, makes the surround sound come to life. The only issue I have encountered with this system is that my home theater is in my basement of the house and when I go up one floor to the far end of my house. I start to lose signal. I have not tested the difference if the transmitter was on the upper floor of my home where the distance may be greater. I am not a professional reviewer, just someone who bought the system and is completely happy with it and would recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable wireless headphone system with the best quality sound.
