Sennheiser RS 170
Though the Sennheiser RS 170 is one of the least expensive wireless Sennheiser models, I enthusiastically recommend it (even to persnickety audiophiles) for its wide stereo image projection and impressive maximum volume levels. It may not be the best-sounding set of wireless headphones from Sennheiser, but the RS 170 is very much worth the price for budget-minded shoppers.
- Overall score: 7.5 (3.5 stars)

The good: The Sennheiser RS 170 is a full-size set of headphones with Kleer wireless technology that delivers CD-quality sound.
The bad: The awkward placement of the controls on the right earcup may require a longer learning curve for some users, and the transmitter/charger base lacks digital inputs.
The bottom line: The RS 170 continues Sennheiser's unchanging dedication to sonic clarity and they're well worth the price for anyone looking to grab wireless sound from a TV, AV receiver, cable box, or game console.
