Question about XO Vision Wireless Infrared Stereo Headphones for Car Car Video Player

2 Answers

Wireless Headphone not working with my portable DVD player

I have just purchased a set of Infrared wireless stero headphones for my DVD player that we typically take in the car. Both are infrared based but I can get anything but an occasional static blurb on the headphones. They seem pretty straight forward - directions weren't even included with the headphones, but I must be missing something! I tried turning on the headphones first and then the TV but they still don't sinc. Any suggestions?

Firstly, make sure your DVD have built-in IR wireless module so that your headphone can receive the audio signal from your DVD player.

Second, it should be clear which frequency transmitted from your DVD player. Generally speaking, there are two frequency of IR transmitter.One is 2.3MHz/2.8MHz. another is 3.2MHz/3.87MHz. Only emission frequency same as receiver can receive the audio signal.

    how do you change the frequency if needed? My headphones worked for months (as long as batteries were replaced when necessary) and now they won't. The kids may have changed frequency playing with it, but I am not sure if it can be changed.

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.

Bought a set of wireless headphones but they only have a small headphone jack (size of Ipod headphones) to connect the transmitter to dvd player. How do I connect?


Get an adapter to convert whatever stereo plug you have to whatever stereo jack you want it to mate with. I imagine the wireless headphone documentation discusses that.

Both of My audiovox infrared headphone has no sound. I have changed the batteries, red light is on, and volume up. Still no sound. We can hear the sound on the car radio.


The owners manual does not say much about the infrared, however you cannot use the vehicle sound system and the infrared at the same time. When the player is in use and the raidio is off, you should see red lights (4) in the black plastic above the screen. This indicates the infrared is transmitting. if still no sound thru the phones: R&R the phones. Amazon universal infrareds.

Hello Could you tell me how to get the infrared


Hello... I am sorry to hear you are having problems. I am unsure if you bought this as a package deal with the headphones or purchased the headphones separately. If you purchased them separately, they may not be compatable. Headphones come in different frequencies. The reason for this is if you had 2 different dvd players and 1 kid was watching Spongebob and the other kid was watching Hannah Montana, they would not interfere with each other as far as sound. Some dvd players will allow you to change the output frequency of the IR (infrared) transmitter built into the dvd player. This feature would be in the menu section of your dvd player. Make sure the headphones are on properly, because if they are backwards, they may not read, because IR frequencies are "line of sight" meaning the receiver (headphones) has to see the transmitter (dvd player). You will see a tinted window that has 3 or 4 bulbs. That will be your transmitter. Make sure you have good batteries in the headphones and that you have them turned on. If you have power and have checked the IR frequency, and they were purchased aftermarket, then you may need a different set that receives the correct frequency. If this is a package deal and you have checked the batteries and they power up properly, you may have a bad IR transmitter inside the dvd player. With the info you provided I can only speculate at this point, but this gets you on a start. Let me know if I can help more! Good luck with your venture!!

Okay first of all im going to assume you are using wireless headphones.If thats the case make sure your overhead will operate wireless hphones. If you can see some hidden leds it does go to menu on your unit and make sure the infrared headphone is turned on.
