SOURCE: logitech freepulse headphones not charging?

Same Problem, Headphones will charge but they wont turn on no matter what you do. Called, got them replaced, so I thought hmmm I can figure out what went wrong with the old ones.

It is the switch itself. The connection next to the charging plug does not make contact anymore. It is a weak point and after putting excessive force on the power button it actually twists the switch enough to beak the solder joint. DO NOT LIFT THE SWITCH ITSELF! Just solder the one next to the charging plug and it will be good to go.

To take them apart is a pain. Remove foam by pulling on it. Remove tiny torrx screw (CR VT-6, bit I used), then remove (actually pry up) silver "ring" at the point where the band meets the ear piece. Finally, pry apart at the band section. I used a razor blade. It is 4 tabs on the inside and is a pain, but came apart. Then take 2 screws out to remove the band and there is the board.

Solder the switch next to the light and charge plug and it is good to go.

Hope this works,

I have HDR65/RS65 Sennheiser wireless headphones. I disconnected them to move stuff around, then re-connected them. Now all I get is a 2 second cycle consisting of: 1 second of static that builds in...

Try connecting them to an MP3 player or connect wired headphones to the same source to make sure the sound source is working correctly. If that works, verify the voltage on the batteries is 2.4 volts after charging. Mine stopped charging fully and the headphones wouldn't work at all, but when I connected a couple of AAA batteries to it in series, it worked great.

How can i setup the mic monitoring system?

The mic monitor should work (you should hear yourself in the headset) as soon as you plug in the chat-controller cable. If not, then there may be something wrong with the chat-controller cable. Also, please make sure you have a fresh, fully-charged set of batteries in the headset.

I changed my batterys and now it wont let me talk or hear threw the mic

What type of batteries did you use? It's best to use new, fresh from the package alkaline AAA's. You can use NiMH rechargeable batteries, but make sure that they're fully charged up. Some say they come fully charged, but they might not be.

My Logitech headphones mic won´t work with windows xp. Can hear, don´t hear me.

Your headphone mic is all right. The problem is with the sound driver you are using. Many a time the headphone jack are not properly connected so it may be another issue for not working of your headphone. Your operating system is all right check out the sound driver setting from the control panel.
Good Luck

Logitech Freepulse headphones won't turn on

There is a reset button on both the headphone and the transmitter. Try to reset them both before attempting to pair them again. Since the led won't turn on there is a possibility that the battery is not charging. Is the orange light working when the headphones are charging? It should be and then it should turn off when the battery is full.

Loss of signal

The receptor in the Logitech MP3 Wireless and Ipod wireless headphones is located in the right speaker of the headphones, so place your player in a pocket in the right side of your coat.
