There is a white noise hiss after every sound that comes through the headphones.The sound decays over approx 1.5 seconds. Have tried moving the base around the room, spent $$$ on high quality connection...


Maybe changing channels will do the trick. The noise your hearing is like a distortion of frequency from a nearby device that is using the same frequency the headphones uses.

Input fitting on headphone has broken,can this be fixed?jack wont stay plugged in


Hello. Yes it can be fixed. Take your headphone to any radio shack store and show it to one of the technicians there. They will show you the component you need to make the repair. Many times, a dab of one minute clear epoxy will mend too. Regards, Joe

No sound from RS130 headphones


I'm having the same problem with the RS140. Only a few weeks old, and no sound at all coming out (not even the beeps). Have replaced batteries and tried a different audio source. Base station lights are on and indicating it is receiving an audio signal, but nothing is going go the headphones.

Sennheiser RS120 with noise...


Couple of things could be going on..

Try the obvious first

1. Select a different channel on the base unit: Located on the front, under the logo is a small switch. Note the position and try the other two settings
2. Make sure your base unit is not next to other items that may interfere with it.. cordless phones and wireless network routers etc.. microwaves or other RF sources .. fluorescent lamps.. etc

Lastly.. just about all wireless headphones have some noise or background hiss.. but it should be minor.. if the rechargeable batteries are not taking a full charge or cannot retain the charge properly.. the reception will also weaken.. and that noise will increase.. and the reception distance will decrease.

You can buy a new set of rechargeable batteries .. just make sure they are exactly like those in your headphones..

If I remember right.. they are Nickel Metal Hydride… (NiMH).. Radio Shack will have them.. or a store like Batteries Plus.. If you replace them.. go for a slightly beefier battery.. a higher mA-h.. may take a bit longer to charge initially.. (If you try this.. remember.. they will need to charge overnight before use) but will “play” longer in use.

It has been noted that many of these headphones shipped with inferior batteries.. that problems seems to have been addressed by the mfg.

Good Luck!
