Acoustic Research AW910C wireless headphones

Hello, I cannot raise the sound levels. I also cannot find any companysupport when it comes to a firmware upgrade or a patch that might fixthis issue. All my sound levels are set properly on my computer. When Itake the headphones out of the configuration by just turning on mycomputer speakers, I have no issues therefore it is not my sound card.However, the computer setup aside, the headphones work perfectly when Iattach them to my stereo system's natural sound receiver. Audiovox doesnot offer support (as I understand that AR was taken over by them inMarch of 2007). Try Googling "Acoustic Research support", it islimited, well to this site more or less.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Heyo....This may sound silly, but some computers have two different USBs....USB1 and USB2, perhaps it is made for one or the other. There may be that there might be an issue with two files that are named incorrectly on your system. If you right click on your start button and select "Explore". From there you need to click on the "Windows" folder, listed on the left side of your screen under "Local (C:)" and then the "INF" folder. Scroll down the list of folders and file names on the right side of your screen. You will see two files listed as "wdma_usbinf.bak" and"wdma_usbpnf.bak". These files should be listed as "wdma_usb.inf" and "wdma_usb.pnf". In order to do this we need to rename the file. Move the mouse pointer over the first file name, "wdma_usbinf.bak", then right click with your mouse. From the pop up menu, you want to click "Rename". The file name will appear in a box in order for you to rename it. Change the name to "wdma_usb.inf" and then press enter. Do the same procedure to rename the "wdma_usbpnf.bak" file. Close the explore window, restart the computer, afterwards plug in the USB headset.

Good Luck

OK, you will need super glue:

Bend the wire next to the stiffener wire thing need the headset, once you bend it against it, test the sound, if the sound returns, super glue it to the position it is at

SOURCE: outside caller hears themselves in an echo

Echo is usually caused by the transmit (speak) level on the unit being set too high.

1. First, try lowering the volume of the telephone. If you still hear an echo, adjust the volume of the headset itself.

2. The master transmit controls of the headset are the ABCD switch settings on the bottom of the base. A is the lowest and D is the highest setting.

3. You can fine tune this setting with the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons on the back of the charging base.

4. If this doesn't fix the echo, try moving the configuration dial on the left side of the charging base. The recommended setting for most phones is 1.

What does the orange light mean on your sony pulse headset? And why doesent make noises when its turend on?

check the cables to the base-transmitter station. If they are firmly connected or try to replace them. Most of the wireless headphones of some more advanced design detects incoming signal and switches to mode on wich indicates with another color when the sound dissapears the headphones detects no sound and goes into a powersaving mode. Usually the headphone itself doesn't fault very often, cause they are battery powered and the powersupply isn't wavering like the powertransformer to the base-station due to the irregular power from the ac outlets, wich is why any electronics should be connected to a surgearrester list.
Another thing to check for is there any sound coming from the tv/game connector, try to connect a nother speaker assembly or headphone or if the connector is of a low signal type, a amplifier with speakers or headphone make sure you don't have to much between where the sound comes from and the headphones. Let me know if some of my advice helps you!

Hey! I have a problem with my sony MDR-RF81 headphones....when the bass is to loud...there volume is droping...when I listen to skirllex for example...the volume is high or low...but when the bass...

Hey there, the problem with your sony is not a hardware problem, the headphones are completely fine, its the amount of bass you are putting into the headphones, there are two solutions to this, if you're using a mobile device (Apple, android etc...), go to your app store and download an equaliser e.g poweramp, with this, you can adjust the sound going through to your headphones using the built in equalizer (usually 5-10 bands, research this if you have no knowledge of equalisers), you can use this to turn down the bass frequencies in the sound, or the only other thinkable options are if you are already have an equaliser in use, turn it down, because putting all of the bars to the top makes the sound horrible, research on some suggestions for equaliser presets (another word for equalizer settings), or just turn the volume down.

the reason this happens is because bass naturally overpowers treble, and if it is too loud, the treble and mids will be significantly quieter, headphones are a menace for this, so all you have to do is tweak the sound a little (using an equaliser) to find that perfect balance between the different elements of sound.:-) :-)

Hope this helped mate :-) :-)

Bose QC 2 Noise Cancelling Headphones the red light is on. Should there be a green light if they are working?

No green light for QC2, just red. If it's constant the battery is charged, powering the noise cancellation, and, if connected to an audio device, conducting sound. If the red light is blinking, the battery is losing its charge.

In recent days my headset (590A) has only been transmitting sound on the right ear via bluetooth connection, when I use the 3.5mm jack (connected to left ear) both ears work. Is there a fix for...

Your headset can be used as stereo headphones or a wireless microphone for a bluetooth enabled device like a cell phone or a computer. When you plug the headphones into a device with the 3.5mm jack the headset automatically turns into stereo headphones and disables the microphone(headphone mode). It sounds like whatever device your headset is connected to via bluetooth is using the wireless microphone protocol where sound only comes through the one speaker and the microphone is on(microphone mode). The bluetooth protocol settings of your device may have been changed accidentally. You will need to go into the bluettoth settings of your device you are using with your headset and change the protocol. If it is a cell phone you will need to go into the bluetooth settings in the settings menu. If it is a computer your can adjust the bluetooth settings in the control panel.

You can download the pdf file of your instruction manual for your headset here

I hope this was helpful and let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for using FixYa

Hooking up wireless headphones into the tv

u have to split the signal by having both the tv and the headphones getting the input,as you're probably only have the audio cables going to the headphones.You need an audio splitting cable (it has 4 malle connections) so you can put 2 in the tv and 2 in the headphone base.
