I find that in my house I can walk ANYWHERE and get a clean signal. I imagine those who complained about a hum or buzz or something else have some location issue, like lots of walls, florescent lighting, or a conflict with the frequency the headphones operate at. I use a DECT 6 wireless phone system, and have a dual-band wifi network in the house, and NEITHER interferes with the clear sound.
One last thing, which is amazing: these headphones (which surround the ear) are actually comfortable enough to watch a double-feature (okay, maybe taking a short break in between). I think these may be the most physically comfortable headphones I've ever worn.
At the end of the day I really want to emphasize that I do like these headphones a lot, but there are some things that you may find annoying about them as I do. I've listed them below in no particular order.
AC adapter has short cabling and is on the thin side. Ideal for traveling, but less so for home setups.
Automatic shut off after 5 minutes of no audio signal. Would have been nice to be able to toggle this feature; since I like "always on" setups.
Requires pressing of the power button on the transmitter to wake from standby instead of automatically when an audio signal is detected.
Flimsy plastic tabs on ear muffs can easily be broken with gentle force. Most complaints about the RS 180 is regarding this.
Power on/off button is located right between volume up and down buttons (On headphones). Very easy to accidentally press when adjusting volume.
As far as everything else goes - I couldn't be happier. Sound quality is leaps and bounds better than the RS 120 II's and ANY Bluetooth set I've tried. Slightly better than the RS 170's as well. Still nowhere near the quality of a wired headset in terms of full range sound, but this is the best offering we can get for now and I'm grateful for it. If you have questions, feel free to ask in comments.
The packaging that it comes in is slick and easy to open. All of the components are easy to remove. The design of the charging base station is minimalist compared to some larger bulkier units. The smaller size antenna did not impact the broadcast quality. It needs 16 hours to charge the first time, NiMh batteries are included. Connecting everything is a cinch, comes with lots of power adapters, a/v adapter, and a 1/8" to 1/4" plug adapter.
It is an open air design allowing the bass to more freely resonate. I typically like the sound provided by those types, but the result is that it doesn't eliminate external sound. So not for everyone there.
I ran the headphones through the paces, classical, metal, jazz, 3d sound from a video game. It all sounded great. Good bass response, the treble doesn't turn reedy.
This headset looks like it would be good for someone with a wide head, but my head is tall. The adjustable band was comfortable at first, but after ten minutes or so, I noticed a hot spot where it put pressure on my scalp. I tried moving it to different spots, but still the same problem.
The ear cups and headband cushin are made from the same material. It is spongy, but not very soft. The ear cups especially were quite rough. I tried looking for accessories on their website, hoping you could swap out the ear cups with leather, but no such luck.
I'll most likely return these as they aren't comfortable for me. Given the price and the sound quality, if you had a smaller head or your skin didn't mind rough ear cups, then this is a set to consider.
Great sound for the value
Good battery management
Base station easily recharges headset
Not for larger heads
Scratchy material on ear cups
