Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the yellow on the TV unit is for video while the white is for mono audio. In cases such as this and the cable to be connected has three, yellow would still go to yellow while the red & white would go together before going into the white by using an adapter as shown below.

If the RCA jacks on the TV says IN, then they will not work as audio source for the wireless headphones. The headphones would need an OUT from the TV. Sorry.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Trying to get new headphones to cancel speakers on tv


What kind of headphones and TV are you trying to make work as an combined pair? It sounds to me as though you have your head phones plugged into the speaker location on the TV which could be a small hole that shows a pic of speakers. Look on the TV for an 'mic' or 'pic of headphones' holes. If there is an plug in hole with either it states mic or shows a pic of headphones plug the headphones into that hole instead of where you have them plugged into now.

Another suggestion is to use MDI cords in which you may already be using aka white, red, yellow colored plugs. If those plugs are assembled in the slots incorrect that also could be the reason as to why the headphones turn down when you turn the volume to the TV down; which also would influence the TV volume its self to also disengage to go either louder or quieter. MDI cords should be plugged in the following pattern to be categorized as the following with each color following the next color; yellow, white, red. Now if you are using MDI cords presently do you have them plugged in front or back of the TV?

If the TV has hole ports in both front and back for MDI cords then reverse your plug ins. Example: If you have them plugged in the front instead switch all three to the back of the TV or vise versa.

Also another thing; since you are wanting to use headphones for your TV speakers instead of the TV speakers themselves usually plugging headphones in are controlled by TV volume buttons; however I am assuming that you are trying to state that when you plug headphones into the TV you still hear the volume in your ears and anyone in the TV room is also still hearing the TV even though headphones are plugged in, am I right?

With you wanting to cancel the speakers on the TV out only attempted to use TV volume for speakers and without it working means you have the MDI cord plugged into the audio which would cause the TV to power the volume for the headphones anyways. May I ask this; since I am a bit confused, alright are you wishing for the headphones to be able to be loud enough so the TV only powers them for volume when you use the TV?

I know that headphones being plugged into an TV should only keep their volume within the ear buds. Therefore I have never heard of headphones being able to be loud enough to power out room sound. Instead they power internal volume which would be within your ears. Headphones were meant to keep noise and volume from surrounding a room to block room noise out and to keep the sound for your/ an own persons only listening capability. So because of this I am confused as to how ear phones would have the ability to sound the room with audio.

I can understand that if what you are trying to say is that the speakers on the TV still output volume even with head phones plugged in which would be an issue, since head phones are to capture the volume and noise from the unit in which plays aloud- to actually silence it instead- for the individual whom requires or presumes to have themselves to be the only listener.

Instructions
1
Set up the transmitter. Wireless headphones rely on a transmitter that sends audio via infrared or radio waves to your headset. Use the digital audio output (coaxial or optical), RCA outputs (red and white) or headphone jack on your TV to connect the transmitter. The connection will depend upon which outputs are available on your TV and/or the transmitter.
2
Use an RCA-to-headphone adapter. If you don't have a headphone jack on your TV and the transmitter includes only a headphone connection, connect an RCA-to-female headphone connector. This will allow you to plug the wireless transmitter into the female headphone end and then hook the RCA ends into your television's audio outputs. You may also need a 3.5 mm (mini jack)-to-1/4-inch adapter if the headphone plug on the transmitter doesn't match the television jack.

3
Set the transmitter on top of, or next to, the television. For infrared transmitters, you'll need a direct path between the headphones and the transmitter. Placing the transmitter on or near the TV will allow you to take advantage of the clear path you already have.
4
Plug in the transmitter and turn it on. Charge the headphones if necessary.
5
Turn on the headphones. Adjust the volume and settings and you're ready to watch TV.

My Sennheiser HD 205 suddenly had a problem with its jack. You have to move its top, nearest to the cord, to get a sound on the other ear, probably it was pulled and something went loose. I spliced it open...


The two copper wires on your headphones are independent grounds for each channel. Twist them together and attach them to the ground cable ( black) of the new plug. The colored wires of the headphone correspond to the live wires of each channel, and the plug should have the same colors. Wiring together the grounds will not affect in any way the stereo separation, it is just that each ear needs its own ground. Cheaper headsets just transfer the ground from one ear to the other one through the metal headband.

Just bought the brookstone wireless tv headphones. I have a Westinghouse 40 inch lcd tv. I plugged in the rca red/white into the audio out and I don't get any sound into the headphones?


I had the same problem with Brookstone wireless headset the only solution I found was plug in the red and white connectors to your cable box it works perfectly that way. Just make sure the red cable connector from the transmitter is connected to right red input connector on the box. I have a Comcast cable box. Now I need a solution for them on my PS3?

The sound comes and goes from right part of headset


The left/right problem could be a bad connection on the red/white XBOX cables. Check to see that they're plugged in properly and not loose. You can also try plugging an MP3 player into the red/white jacks to see if the problem is with the headset or the XBOX. If it works ok with your MP3 player, then the headset is working fine.

You can get a new headset controller cable on our web site. Click on Replacement Parts in the left menu for the headset model you own (X1, X3, or X4).

Chat weird sound


Can you try your X1 on a PC? If the mic sounds weird on the PC as well as on XBL, then there's probably something wrong with the mic. But if the mic sounds good on your PC but not on XBL, then you probably need a new chat-controller cable, which should fix things right up.

Cannont connect Ear Force X3 with my HDMI set up .


Is the problem that you're using a single HDMI cable to connect your Xbox to your TV? If so, this Turtle Beach article should help... ________________________________________
HDMI and Connecting Ear Force Xbox Headphones
The current Microsoft Xbox 360 series of gaming consoles allow the use of HDMI cables for simpler hookup to home theater systems and Hi-Definition televisions (HDTV).
The Xbox 360 Elite (the black one) comes with two additional cables, an HDMI cable and a separate AUDIO cable that provides a pair of RCA jacks (red and white) and an optical digital audio output (S/PDIF Out). With this cable package, you can easily connect any of our X-series headsets and an HDMI-connected television at the same time.
This Xbox 360 HDMI Cable package is available as an extra-cost option from Microsoft: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x/xbox360hdmiavcable/
Here's a more in-depth explanation of the Xbox 360 HDMI Cable and how it works: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937899?sd=xbox
[NOTE 1:] The standard Xbox models do not come equipped with this cable set. The HD cable they have obscures the HDMI connector, so that the two sockets cannot be used at the same time. If you only have this stock HD connector (component video, composite video, stereo analog audio and optical digital audio connectors), then you will not be able to use the HDMI connector at the same time.
In order to use both sockets at the same time (HDMI and A/V) you'll need to purchase the Xbox 360 HDMI Cable package described above.
[NOTE 2:] The current Xbox 360 Elite Holiday Edition (Fall 2009) does not come with the HDMI Cable set.
___________________________________________________________________
Some companies make aftermarket HDMI cables for use with the Xbox 360, but these may not provide the dual RCA jacks that carry the 2- channel analog audio necessary for hookup of the anlog-only Ear Force X-series headsets. If this is what you have, you may need to find another way to connect your Ear Force X-series headset.
The TOSLINK digitally-connected X-series headsets can be always be connected using optical digital "Toslink" connections (and that's the best way to use them!).
___________________________________________________________________
The oldest white-and-gray Xbox 360 models DO NOT have an HDMI port. With this particular (obsolete) model, you cannot use HDMI connections, but you can use any of our X-series headsets.
Current Xbox 360 models all have separate HDMI and A/V ports ("sockets") on their back panels.
___________________________________________________________________
Here are some suggestions for alternative connection schemes:
XBOX 360 AUDIO PLAYS THROUGH TELEVISION SET:
For X4 and X41: Your best bet would be to connect the Xbox optical digital audio out to the X4 transmitter's optical digital input. Then connect the X4 optical digital output to the optical digital audio input on your HDTV or home theater amplifier.
[NOTE:] Some HDTV systems have an optical digital audio output that will not transmit Dolby Digital/DTS encoded digital audio, only stereo PCM audio will be passed. In this case, you must connect as above.
For X2, X3 and X31: You can use the Headphones jack or the Audio Out jacks on your TV to connect to the Audio In jack on the Transmitter.
For X1 and X11: You can use the Headphones jack or the Audio Out jacks on your TV (if available) to connect to the headset's analog Audio Input.

NOTE: Please make sure your TV has Audio Out jacks. Some TV's only have Audio In jacks.
Audio In jacks only accept incoming audio signal; they do not send audio signal out. If no audio signal is being sent to the headset, no sound will play from the headset.
___________________________________________________________________
You may need to purchase a suitable adapter cable in order to connect the TV audio output(s) to the Ear Force X-series headset's transmitter or Audio Input plug.
- Connect the HDMI cable so that the Xbox 360 plays its audio through the TV.
- For X1, adjust the Dashboard > Settings > System > Voice in the Xbox 360 so that the talkback and game sounds are played together (Play Through Speakers). - For X3, X31, X4 and X41, you should set this to Play Through Headset.
__________________________________________________________________
XBOX 360 AUDIO PLAYS THROUGH HOME THEATER RECEIVER (except X4 and X41): This is exactly the same as the above, except that you will use the receiver's Headphones output jack to connect to the Audio In on the Ear Force Xbox-compatible headset's Transmitter (X2, X3, X31) or the green Audio Input plug (X1).
- You may need to obtain a shielded audio cable with 1/4" stereo phone plug to 1/8" stereo mini-phone plug ends. The 1/4" phone plug goes to the receiver's Headphones jack, while the 1/8" mini-phone plug goes to the Audio In on the Ear Force Transmit- ter (X2, X3, X31) or Audio Input plug (X1).
- Adjust the Dashboard > Personal Settings in the Xbox 360 so that the talkback and game sounds are played together (Play Through Both). For X3 and X31, you may also set this to Play Through Headset.

Wiring code for the jack?


You're right on the code, with the exception of the right and left. I'm an AKG dealer and spoke to their service department. Here goes:

White=Ground
Yellow=Left
Red=Right

To confirm this, I used a multimeter in continuity mode and tested them. This code is 100% correct.
