I bought a pair of RS175 and found that my ears were cooking, and called head office to see if there was a solution , the gentleman that i spoke with suggested I try the ear pads from the RS 185 which are a fabric and not pleather, they definitely are better. I think the actual headset is too heavy and uncomfortable, the RS120 are perfect but you need a digital converter with new Tv.
I contacted Sennheiser Support to enquire about the RS 185 earpads ensuring they are comparable with my RS 165 headphones before making a purchase. I have had RS 165 for almost 5 years now and since I use them daily, the original earpads got worn out. However, the headphones themselves are still intact and kicking hard! I was pleased to receive their response the next day with information and links I needed. I purchased RS 185 Earpads and the Headband padding for my RS 165 plus added an adapter plug to score a free delivery. It arrived quickly and the packaging was very well padded. I am very happy with Sennheiser as a brand; great product and excellent customer service. Thank you!
very prompt delivery - new headphone pads fitted and worked perfectly
I purchased these to replace the leatherette version on my 195 headset. They are more comfortable and for me I haven't noticed any change in the audio quality. Very happy with the replacement earpads.
