Question about Sennheiser RS 110 Consumer Headphones
Bought headphones Sennheier). They do not seem to be working (picking up sound-but we hear static). we have a plasma TV-the Bose system we use does not have an audio output jack. Where shoudl we connect-off the TV reciever;cable box, etc.
Two things.. Check the batteries..
Also.. since these headphones have to have a signal sent to them to activate transmission (green light simply indicates they are receiving a signal) it can take a few moments after the signal begins to activate them.
I would hazard a guess that when you unplug the cables and then plug them back in.. the feedback that generates activates the base much the same as a regular audio signal would
Finally.. make sure the source is a fixed output.. if not.. and its variable..you will have to increase the output or volume to activate the base..

Ok.. first.. the simple thing is to go into your television menu and turn the television speaker OFF.
Then exit the menu and turn the volume up.. try your headphones now.
Next.. check the back of the TV for a FIXED AUDIO OUT.. plut your headphones into these outputs.. if you have these.. you can simply turn the set down.. and use the volume control on the 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

Try the Audio 1 rear. With the headphones plugged in on some T.V.s the headphone jack unfortunately disconnects the audio from the other outputs. Try looking in the documentation to see if you can change this in the T.V.s menu as some allow you to use both for hearing impaired people. Hope this helps.,

Are you using AV cables from your DVD player to your TV? (the yellow,red and white ones) If you are the is a way to do this, since you have no other outputs at all is you will have to make one. With the purchase of a couple adapters and an additional av (audio only cord which is red and white) you can do this. The first adapter you need looks like this. http://www.globalgrabber.com/product/4507930-5mm-stereo-plug-2-rca-plugs-jacks/ You will remove the red and white AV cords from the back of your TV that run from the DVD player and insert them in the adapter to their respective colors on the adapter. Then you need to purchase a double female AV adapter that looks like this .http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=double+female+av+adaptor&hl=en&prmd=ivns&biw=1600&bih=799&bav=on.2,or.&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=14119505288159192113&sa=X&ei=S-V1TZPDJIKglAexv-ybCA&ved=0CI0BEPMCMAU# Then you need to put that adapter on the one you just installed so you can add the new AV cord onto it and run the new cord to the TV.That completes the sound of the DVD's back to your TV. Now for your headphones. You will need a double female 3.5mm jack input to put between your headphones and the remaining jack on the adapter. It looks like this http://www.buy.com/prod/3-5mm-female-to-female-stereo-audio-cable-coupler/q/sellerid/23962916/loc/101/216778563.html Play a movie and enjoy. This is the only way to do what you want with the current setup you have. These adapters and wires can all be purchased for less than $10 off of E-bay. If your not using AV cords then the only other way to do it with the current setup you have is --
You can purchase a reasonably priced receiver and hook your DVD, cable, and TV to it as well as your headphones. With no outputs on your TV there will be no way to hear your DVD's through your headphones. You can also purchase a very reasonably priced shelf speaker stereo. Many made in recent years have some audio inputs and of course inputs for your headphones.

What are you plugging your 2 RCA connectors (from the headphones) into on the television?
You are correct, usually:
White = Left Red = Right
In this case
Black = Left Red = Right
Not sure....guess some manufacturers need to be different...
Back to the issue,
You to need to connect the Black to White and Red to Red to the TV BUT you need to make sure you are connecting to an OUTPUT and not to an INPUT on the TV. Most newer TV's do have an "audio out RCA jacks" on the TV but not all. It should be labeled at the connector if it is an output, or just another input. You can always consult the TV manual to be sure.
Few things you can do to test
I hope this helps,
