Question about Sennheiser RS130 Headset

1 Answer

Intermittent power?? I just got the RS140 for use with my laptop. I've got it plugged into the wall and into my PC. The headphones are on the transmitter and charging. The green Power light comes on for a minute or two and then goes off. It just keeps going on and off every few minutes. Is that normal? This is the first charge. Also, I've not seen anything about using these with my laptop but I'm assuming they're compatible, right? Thanks! Larry

Re: Intermittent power??

Larry, The green power automatically detects the source when you plug it in. If the volume is too low or non-existent (under-modulation) the green light automatically switches off in 10 minutes after you've plugged the transmitter into the source. At least that's what the manual says. It should work with a laptop.

The headphones don't work on my PC when plugged in to any of the USB ports they are very distorted and are very crackly.

Do you get a good sound from your PC using other headphone? Mean, are you sure you don't have a problem with your PC's audio card?

Charging problem?

The battery in the headphones is most likely not taking a charge anymore and will need to be replaced with an equal value rechargeable battery

Unable to conenct to laptop

Performing a system reset might take care of the problem. Reset instructions: Plug in the AC charger and hold the power/pair button. The headphones will show a solid red or blue light when they have been successfully reset.

Battery ran low...recharged it but will not power on now

Connect the device to the wall charger. Hold the on/off button for about 5+ seconds, then unplug the wall charger (while still holding the power button) and immediately plug it back in. The blue light should turn back on if it short-circuited due to moisture/overheating/miscommunication problems, etc.

The Headphones suffered a short, likely when you were plugging them in or off the charger. The easiest fix is to connect the headphones to your charger cable and then flicker the power...

so if you plug them into a usb charger cable to your pc, then quickly disconnect and reconnect the cable from your pc's usb port... this might not work due to the slowness of recognising the drivers.

if you have a wall charger for this unit, connect it up and then unplug it and replug it @ the wall multiple times. Or use a switched outlet/power strip to cycle the power to the charger quickly...

Worked perfectly for me!

No sound from RS130 headphones

I'm having the same problem with the RS140. Only a few weeks old, and no sound at all coming out (not even the beeps). Have replaced batteries and tried a different audio source. Base station lights are on and indicating it is receiving an audio signal, but nothing is going go the headphones.

Plantronics Bluetooth Headset P590

This is a "known issue" that I have raised to Plantronics. Whether they do anything about it, remains to be seen. The workaround I have discovered seems to work with both of my P590 headphones that stopped charging:

1. Plug in the USB charging cable to a laptop or computer that is powered on.
2. Connect the USB charging cable to the headphones
3. Connect the 3.5mm headphone cord cable to the headphone output on the laptop of computer (this is the long cable with the normal 3.5mm stereo plug at each end)
4. Plug the other end of the 3.5mm cable into the P590 input.

The headphones should start charging.

Won't charge!

HEADPHONES AND SPEAKERS Hi There Try this, VOLUME Try Adjusting the vlume on your PC first. Check the volume on the Headphone too if there is one. CLEANING Using a dump clothe. Wipe the plugs with a twisting motion. WIRELESS\BLUETOOTH Check your battery if it is drained. Try replacing them witha new one or charge them if they are rechargables. If all fails then You may have a Sound Card problem. Using a spare Speaker or Headphone check it if it works. If its not then its Defective and needs replacement. If its working then your Speakers or Headphones are defective. Try fixing them by cleaning or checking the Continuity of its cables using a analog Multi tester. Hope This helps =============================================== If you are having trouble with a Newly bought items then return them a demand a replacement or a refund!You may have purchased a reconditioned\repaired\factory defect product.
