Sennheiser & Marantz


Standard Member
Hi all,

I have a Marantz NR-1601 AVR and I'm thinking about what headphones to pair it with. This is almost 100% for watching movies, so I'm particularly interested in the fact that the Marantz supports the Dolby Headphone standard.

I'm not really sure what to go for over the Sennheiser wireless options the RS170 or RS180 or the wired HD650's. I'll be sitting 4-5 metres away so would need an extension for the wired set.

I believe the 170's have a surround function - is this not necessary thanks to the amp? I gather the 180's will support the Dolby Headphone and therefore it's just a case of which will be better suited to watching movies. Price isn't relevant so outside of the portability will I be better off going for the 650?

Many thanks!
