Top Customer Reviews
They all work well together or separately. Most importantly, when pairing them to the same base and adjust the volume on one headset, the volume will change on ALL the units with the exception of the RS-160 's. They'll work independently and are likely the best choice for adding additional pairs.
Not much to say about the MX-W1's. They're portable and that's it. They don't compare to the headsets. They do sound clear. The highs sound good, but there's a noticeable lack of bass.
The 180's sound the nicest over-all for all material. They're also VENTED so your ears won't sweat during long usage or in a hot house. They also give the best airiness/surround sound when paired to the 170's base. They're also the most comfortable for long sessions. I never knew it, but your ears do get "tired". Additionally, these provide the least privacy. Not that they're loud, just that they can be heard clearly on it's highest volume with someone a couple feet away and still notable in the next room.. For normal TV usage, it really shouldn't be a problem, but music or a good movie could depending on your situation.
The 160's and 170's sound EXACTLY the same and are the best for music, especially bottom heavy material. They're CLOSED units and are best when you need privacy... I.E. bedrooms, late-night. These are my fav's except in late summer.... lol, you take them off and get instant relief..... you didn't really notice how hot your ears were till you take them off. On the upside, they make really good ear muffs in the winter!
First and foremost, these do NOT work well through walls when compared to the RS-130's. The MX-W1's work reliable from 10-15 feet away, no matter the base unit it's paired to. The 160's, maybe 25-30 ft with it's base unit and NO walls. I couldn't tell a difference between the 160's, 170, or 180's when pair to a full size base unit. I'd say maybe 100 feet, line of sight and around 20-40 feet through a wall or 2, depending on thickness. After that, they're unreliable. If you want the best reception, you'll need to go back to the old model. The RS 130 's were my goto's for several years and goes through 6 inch thick concrete! Maybe 100 yards through numerous walls. They do start cracking up as you go, but you can still make it all out. Unlike these new models that either work clearly or don't transmit anything. The only thing that effects the reception for me is the microwave. If you're within 5-8 feet, it will come in and out.
MX-W1 - Just good when you're on the move. I only use it with my PC when at home.
RS-160 - We have several PC's and TV's in our home. We use this were it's needed, usually at night, VERY convenient, works on 2 AA's and is great for portability.
RS-170 - I LOVE the 170's base. The BASS and SURROUND work with ALL of these headphones when paired to the 170's base. The 180's left / right function will still work when paired to the 170's base, but WILL NOT effect the other units paired with the 170's base.
RS-180 - This unit is the most expensive, least useful to use when pairing multiple unit together. It's got a left/right balance control that is only useful for people with a bad ear. For me, it gets in the way and there shouldn't even be buttons on the headset. You should be able to just set it and forget it, not like your ears are constantly changing. I always find myself screwing up the balance when laying down or simply thinking I'm wearing the 170's and was looking for the bass button.
Bottom Line: They ALL pair very well to EVERY base, regardless of how many units paired to the base. The 170's base unit is most useful, especially when pairing multiple units. The 160's headsets are best to use in this situation as the volume control will still work independently of the other headsets paired to the 170's base. REMEMBER, ALL the other headsets will trigger each others volume control whenever any of the volume controls are used.
