Question about Sennheiser Electronic SENNHEISER RI 150 Wireless Headphones

Open Question

Adaptation of the mono Sennheiser IR headphone sold as the 50/55 TV set to make it stereo

If I am correct, the same set, is also available in a stereo version. This is the mono version. Is there a way to adapt the headphone / transmitter, to make it stereo? Or is the transmitter transmitting only in mono? If so, is there a way how I could alter the device, to have it as a stereo headphone set? The headphone is the RI50 headphone and the IR transmitter being the TI 50, together being sold as the 50/55 TV set. I would suspect, that the set is stereo and only by connecting the 2 channels together, being made mono. So, that would make it easy, to make it stereo again. I opened the device, to see or I could "decode" the schematic just by eye. I could not. The receiver has 2 IR eyes, and therefore I suspect that the device is receiving stereo, and made mono on the PCB. For me, the mono headphone is useless. I only want to use it when it is stereo. I received it for free, so, if it does get broken in the way to make it stereo, its a pity but not a huge loss.

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: audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on headphones

It sounds as if you are plugging the base into a standard headphone jack located on the Television set.

RCA Headphone jacks (incl mini) automatically stop the sound output to the main speakers on almost every set I have seen.. or home stereo.. etc etc

In other words you can take a standard RCA jack.. with nothing connected to it.. plug it in while the music or sound is coming out the main speaker.. and it will cut off the output to those speakers..

If you set has audio outputs on the back.. preferably Fixed Audio Out .. you will need to connect your base unit to those.. turn your set volume to 0 and adjust the headset volume using the control on the right ear-cup.

If you have variable audio out.. you will need to go into your TV sets setup menu.. turn off the speaker.. and turn up the set until you achieve a signal and decent volume through the headset.

If you are missing these connections.. your current “work around” is your only solution.

Best of luck

SOURCE: sennheiser 126 connect to tv

You should be able to hook the tv to the cable box the cable box should have your A/V jacks. If so unplug the PS3 plug in your receiver to the cable box and run the PS3 through the receiver. Also check the side of the tv for HDMI inputs if you have HMDI you can go to Radio Shack and get a converter to go from HDMI into A/V

I don't have a remote and the tv is in mono how do


It will usually default to Stereo and still show mono--answer is to manually try (usually not possible) you need to get into the menu with the original remote---Philips at my last count had over 25 different IR codes for their products==many of which are not available with universal remotes etc.

Sennheiser hookup to noncompatable Samsung DLP TV


Ok if I understand what you are saying. You are going from your TVs audio jack into an amplifier TEAC AG-V8050 and then into the Sennheiser T1250 unit? This is done to amplify the sound so your wife can hear the TV via Infared into headphones I am guessing. The connections would have to be as follows. TV RCA jack (Installed by someone to TV audio Output section, most likely the speaker) to the Amplifier TEAC AG-V8050 via RCA cable then from the Amplifier via RCA cable to the Sennheiser TI 250 IR Transmitter. The transmitter then takes the audio input and turns it into a digital signal which is transmitted via IR to headphones which your wife is using. First of all the amp TEAC AG-V8050 is not needed. what happend here is the person doing the installation took sound off of a preamp to avoid having to deal with the TV volume control. This works but it makes matters harder. So here is how you troubleshoot this problem: 1) Disconnect the amplifier and plug the RCA jack of the TV into the RCA jack of a set of amplified Mono headphones. (This is to determine if sound is coming from the TV) If not the problem is in the TV audio section and you will need to take it to a TV repair shop. 2) If audio is coming through the headset the trouble is in the amp or the sennhiser unit. To test the sennhiser unit: plug the sennhiser into the audio out of a VCR and listen in the headphones for sound. If you have sound, the sennheiser is good and the problem may be in the amplifier, but if you do not have sound the the sennheiser is bad. 3)Connect the audio out of the VCR into the audio in of the amplifier and plug the output of the amplifier into the sennheiser which tested good with just the VCR alone. If no sound is present then the amp is your culprit. Once you find out which component is the problem, I would suggest finding a rapair shop here on FitYa to repair your unit or having an electronics technician come to you to fix the bad component. This should help, Thank you, Shuttle83

When I use the headphones listening to TV, I get the background sound (eg music) clearly but the dialogue is very low and drowned out by the background music or ambient sounds


It's because the TV's audio is stereo and the dialogue is mono split between two channels. When dialogue hits your headphones the majority of the mono signal gets cancelled. Try a different set of headphones or watch true stereo channels... IE movie channels

Your microphone has a stereo miniplug, with 3 contacts, that look exactly like headphone minijacks. You have not stated where you are trying to plug this microphone, but most computers /sound cards will accept only mono minijacks, with 2 contacts. Should you have left/ right inputs for microphones, buy a splitter adapter that will turn the stereo jack of the microphone into two mono jacks.

I have Sennheiser HD 570 headphones. The plastic headband is broken where it attaches to the headphone. Can I order a new plastic headband and is difficult to replace?


That part isn't available from Sennheiser. But they are pretty maintainable, if you're good with mechanical things, and if you can come up with another set of the same headphones for parts.
If you've already replaced your headphones and want to rid yourself of the broken 570's, I'm looking for a set to scrounge for parts.

How can use a set of headphone on my TV? I believe that I can use a RCA connector of some-sort. Can anyone help me?


The exact details of your headphones will matter. If you have a set that gives stereo and connects to your computer, you need a 3.5 mm mini plug (stereo) to RCA (two 1/3" prongs IIRC) adapter. If the headset was for some other devices, the adapter will be a 2.5 mm plug to RCA. (If you have mono headphones, get the mono version of the adapter.) The RCA audio plugs are usually red and white or black for audio.

I hope this helps.

No sound from the TV when the headphones are plugged in.


if you have a stereo unit(am+fm reciever) that has output to speakers, connect the out jack of the tv to input on back of stereo unit(aux in or cd input) then you can have output to headphone and speakers also.
