Sennheiser RS120 cuts out after three minutes of silence

I have a pair of wireless head phones that work great for my computer. The problem is when i'm not making any sounds with the computer for about three minutes, the on/off light goes out and makes the headphones give a loud static sound. I'll have to click on something if i want to get the static to stop.As far as i can guess, it's a bad feature they have to cut the power when they aren't being used. I'm wondering if there's anything i can do to fix this problem even if i have to open it up and solder all the way to making some program that makes a click sound every three minutes because the burst of static is really bad.

SOURCE: RS120 Can still hear TV when headphones are on

Ok.. first.. the simple thing is to go into your television menu and turn the television speaker OFF.
Then exit the menu and turn the volume up.. try your headphones now.

Next.. check the back of the TV for a FIXED AUDIO OUT.. plut your headphones into these outputs.. if you have these.. you can simply turn the set down.. and use the volume control on the headphones.

SOURCE: My sennheiser 120 headphones are wearing out. After much use.

You can buy the HDR 120 model which is basically the headphones lone
These will work with the base in conjunction with the set you have now.. or as a replacement
You can also buy replaceable ear cups for less than 20 dollars (check the Sennheiser website)
Finally you may want to replace the rechargeable batteries in the headphones you have
Just make sure you replace them with the exact type.. I believe those are NiMh AAA
Pop them out and go to any Battery Plus or Radio Shack.. a new set probably run you less than 7 bucks
My point.. for less than 30 dollars you can have your old headphones working and looking like new ones
Give the new batteries an overnight charge before using them

Good luck

SOURCE: Sennheiser Wireless Headphone Stops transmitting signal

I had the same problem when I plugged it into a new HDTV. The problem was that the sound on the TV was set too low. The transmitter has a feature that automatically turns off when the signal is off or too low. Try turning up the TV volume to a high/higher level and it should solve your problem. Using the headphone jack with the white input allows you to use the headphones while bypassing the TV speakers.

SOURCE: Sennheiser RS120 with noise...

Couple of things could be going on..

Try the obvious first

1. Select a different channel on the base unit: Located on the front, under the logo is a small switch. Note the position and try the other two settings
2. Make sure your base unit is not next to other items that may interfere with it.. cordless phones and wireless network routers etc.. microwaves or other RF sources .. fluorescent lamps.. etc

Lastly.. just about all wireless headphones have some noise or background hiss.. but it should be minor.. if the rechargeable batteries are not taking a full charge or cannot retain the charge properly.. the reception will also weaken.. and that noise will increase.. and the reception distance will decrease.

You can buy a new set of rechargeable batteries .. just make sure they are exactly like those in your headphones..

If I remember right.. they are Nickel Metal Hydride… (NiMH).. Radio Shack will have them.. or a store like Batteries Plus.. If you replace them.. go for a slightly beefier battery.. a higher mA-h.. may take a bit longer to charge initially.. (If you try this.. remember.. they will need to charge overnight before use) but will “play” longer in use.

It has been noted that many of these headphones shipped with inferior batteries.. that problems seems to have been addressed by the mfg.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: My Sennheiser RS 110 headphones won't work. I

First thing is you need to have a signal going to the headphones for them to work.


If you are getting a signal the green light should be lit.


If only the red lamp is lit the headphones are not getting a signal.


If hooked into a television you should have them plugged into a Fixed Output not variable output..


If you only have a variable output then you must turn the speakers off on the television and then turn the volume up on the TV in order to send a signal to the headphones.


If you are using a amplifier make sure you are using the correct output. Tape Monitors generally will not work as this output is not amplified.


Lastly try using an rca to headphone adapter and plug them into a headphone jack.

Should I hook it up to my cable box or tv?


Hook it to the TV. That way if you play a dvd you'll hear it. Cell phones will interfere, as well as cordless phones, so there's not much to do about that.
