Controls on headset especially the Volume is so much better and easy to control while on.
Price. I got mine on Amazon for 214 vs. the 299 listed on this site. Where I bought mine from listed the headset as Sony 7.1 surround sound without the model no.
Comfort here is slightly better when you first put them on because they do not apply as much tension to your ears. The Senn's put a bit more pressure on your ears than Sony's.
HD 170 Pros
Range is much better. With both transmitters in the same spot (only one turned on at a time) I can walk anywhere in my small house and never drop a signal with the Senn. The Sony on the other hand even though is lists a further range drops out signal when I leave the living room around the corner to the kitchen. Corner from transmitter is about 15ft and it does the same anywhre else I go.
Head set weight on the Senn. is 255 gr. vs 315 gr. on the Sony. That is about 23% heavier and much more so after a while.
Sound (to me) is much more natural than the Sony and I am not saying that the Sony does not sound good and this is especially true with instrumental music. With movies I can accept both as even.
Batteries are replacable, all you have to have is 2 spares so even if you run out of charge it will take 20 sec to replace both and be going, not to mention the cost of shipping both ways and the repair bill for a Sony battery replacement.
No bashing intended here. I can honestly say that if you buy the Sony without any comparison and can live with the battery issue you would love them.
- Are great all around the apartment. We live in 800+ square feet in Manhattan, so this might not apply to large suburban houses, but we have some cement walls that the older Sony had problems with, but this unit handles moving from room to room without even a crackle, let alone no sound loss.
- Fits nicely on my big head. I am 6'4" and often find that headsets do not fully reach my ears, but this headset does and is adjustable, comfortable, and lightweight.
- Has some features I was not aware of but will be useful, namely switches for compression (off/on) and attenuation (0/-8db), in addition to the digital signal processing modes.
As for the only con I have noticed so far, it still has issues with interference from a microwave oven, but that is somewhat expected.
