Sony MDR-RF4000K wireless headphones

Probably a bit late for the original poster, but just in case anyone else comes across this....

I also have the Sony MDR-RF4000K wireless headphones and the problem with the sound cutting out has got steadily worse over time, to the point where I felt like throwing them away. I replaced the batteries (use normal rechargeable AAs with a bit of card to trip the little switch that would normally be tripped by the Sony battery pack), however that had no effect on the problem.

After a little research I have established that the power on the headphones themselves is triggered by a pull switch in the right ear cup. When you put the headphones on, the padded headband is stretched and pulls the switch up, turning the headphones on. The headphones have always been a little big on me, and I can imagine that the headband has stretched permanently in the last few years, probably leading to the switch on being more marginal.

At any rate, although I don't have a fix, I now know that if the sound cuts out, I don't need to take the headphones off - just pull the headband up slightly on the right-hand side, or push the headphones as a whole down a bit, again on the right-hand side.

The sound is only coming out of one side.

One speaker of the headphone is weak... there is no solution to fix it, you have to buy a new one... it's a really common problem ..

I have 2 pair of Sony MDR-RF925RK wireless headphones. They cannot be used at the same time for different audio sources (Computer + TV) as both headset pick up the same signal. Do I have to return one...

You don't necessarily need to buy a different brand of headphones. Check with Sony and see if they offer the same headphones with different frequencies.
I've had to do this with other wireless products in my own home.

No sound coming from left ear initially, now no sound at all.

Sorry, it's probably not fixable. The wires are either broken internally or have become detached from the solder fixings and the headphones are not designed to be repaired, nor are spare parts available.

The only exception is if the plug on the end is broken or has broken wires. Wiggle the wire at the plug end only whilst wearing the cans. If you get sound, then identify where the wire has broken and cut the plug off at that point. Strip the wires, correctly identify the left and right conductors and fit a replacement plug using soldered connections. Ensure that the screening sheath is correctly soldered to the casing (it's the earth connection for both conductors) and close the new plug casing.

In practice, it's fiddly, and only to be done if you're confident with a soldering iron. If not, just do as Philips intended and bin your old cans and buy new: it's not as if the SBCHP430/00 was an expensive model to start with.

I recently dug up a pair of Sony cordless headphones from amongst my electronics - MDR-IF0230. How do I get this to work? It must use a transmitter of some sort but I do not know what to look for.

I have MDR-RF800RK which use a small transmitter with about 8cm of sick ariel. I suspect that IF indicates that you should be looking for an infra-red transmitter. You should be able to get the full info on

MDR-7506 - No sound on right side

It sounds like the pin cracked. If this is the case, you'll need to soldier a new jack on it. Here's how, assuming you already know how to soldier a new 1/8" TRS phono plug.

Cut and strip the cord. There should be two copper wires and (on Sony headphones, at least) a red and a green strand. On a new 1/8" jack, there should be three connections. The middle one is left, and is where the green one goes. The short one on the side is right, and is where the red one goes. The long bit is the common, and is where the copper one goes. Before you solder, however, remember which strand is which, because you have to sand or burn off the colored enamel. (Use a fine grain paper, or use a standard lighter or stick match- anything else might damage or melt the wire)
