Question about Bose QuietComfort 2 Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

Headphones The volume control does not work for the headphones when I use them. I have an older bose cd/radio player with rca plugs in back. I have to adapt them to the newer smaller plug for the headphone (noise cancell #2). Also the sound will not stop on the main speakers when headphone plugged in. Thanks for solution.

Instructions
1
Set up the transmitter. Wireless headphones rely on a transmitter that sends audio via infrared or radio waves to your headset. Use the digital audio output (coaxial or optical), RCA outputs (red and white) or headphone jack on your TV to connect the transmitter. The connection will depend upon which outputs are available on your TV and/or the transmitter.
2
Use an RCA-to-headphone adapter. If you don't have a headphone jack on your TV and the transmitter includes only a headphone connection, connect an RCA-to-female headphone connector. This will allow you to plug the wireless transmitter into the female headphone end and then hook the RCA ends into your television's audio outputs. You may also need a 3.5 mm (mini jack)-to-1/4-inch adapter if the headphone plug on the transmitter doesn't match the television jack.

3
Set the transmitter on top of, or next to, the television. For infrared transmitters, you'll need a direct path between the headphones and the transmitter. Placing the transmitter on or near the TV will allow you to take advantage of the clear path you already have.
4
Plug in the transmitter and turn it on. Charge the headphones if necessary.
5
Turn on the headphones. Adjust the volume and settings and you're ready to watch TV.

NEED INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOOKING UP WIRELESS HEADPHONES FOR VIZIO TV


From the manual:

1. Plug the stereo audio cable into the headphone jack of your audio
source (e.g., stereo, TV, CD player, DVD, etc.). If your audio source
has two RCA output jacks instead of a headphone jack, use the
supplied Y cable to connect your headphones to the two (red and
white) RCA jacks.
2. Connect the other end of the stereo audio cable to the AUDIO IN
socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter.
3. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power
supply socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter. Then,
connect the adapter to an electrical outlet.
Important: This power unit is intended to be correctly oriented in a
vertical or floor mount position.

I am attempting to use my sennheiser rs 110 headphones with my lcd-led tv. the componet jacks coming out of the transmitter are red and black. All my componets on the tv are red and white. so when i plug...


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
  • Does your TV have a "headphone jack", use the adapter (2 RCA female - 3.5mm connector) to plug into the headphone jack and see if there is sound
  • Connect the Black and Red RCAs from the headphones directly to the another output, like a DVD player, CD Player etc....

I hope this helps,
Magoo

My television does not have an audio output so i connected the rs 110 to my cable box and it works fine...however i also have a dvd player connected to the tv video input and for some reason i cannot hear...


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.

Hi,

The audiolevel is much to low for a headphone.
You really need to use a headphoneoutput ( if its there) or a headphoneamplifier.
You tried to connect your headphone on line-level outputs.

It only works on on ear.


You may a poor mating of the jack and the plug. This could be an issue of size and shape or a bit of dirt or something making it not seat properly in the radio. A damaged wire would be also be a suspect; your hand would give a bit of conductivity around a break.

First, I'd check the audio device paperwork for the specs on the jack and make sure you have the right plug and try cleaning any dirt off/out of the jack. Since the Bose headphones do not have a swappable cord (at least the ones I have don't), if you suspect a broken cord, check if your unit is under warranty. If the headphones are out of warranty, you could consider opening up the unit and soldering in a new cord.

I hope this helps.

(the Bose headphones in my house came with a number of adapters. it was easy to pick up the wrong one at times once they got mixed up.)

Wireless headphone hook up


Hello depends on how you hook it up as thee are several ways.

many receivers will output sound through the headphone jacks even when the speakers are left on.(my receivers require that you manually turn speaker A off when using headphones)

it may be possible for you to connect the headphones to a tape output but this will require headphones that have a volume control on them or an external.volume control knob.. You may encounter a problem as I am not sure if a tape output will provide enough signal to drive a pair of headphones. this would not be a problem if you use a pair of WIRELESS headphones as they have their own power source onboard..

A set of wireless headphones could also easily be connected to the output on the back of the TV but assuming you have your receiver plugged in to the TV audio out you may need a couple of Y adapter cables.

Also if your receiver has a pair of PRE OUT jacks those would work to power a set of wireless headphones may also power a wired set but once again not sure on power as I have never needed to try it.

Hope that helps a bit

I bought my rca headphones a long time ago and haven't used them in years. I was wondering, how do I hook them up to my computer. And what all I need to do to hook them to my computer.


Just plug the RCA Headphones Base Station into the headphone or speaker jack on the back of your computer (the headphone or speaker jack usually being green in color), and turn the volume up in Microsoft Windows to about 75%, then adjust the volume control on your headphones to a comfortable level. (p.s. even if you don't use Microsoft Windows, turn the volume up to about 75%, as most computer sound chips are very similar in their output level.)

RCA wireless headphones


solution: the directions state: if the TV volume is not tuned to at least 50 percent or more, the headphones will automatically shut themselves off after 4 minutes to limit electromagnetic waves in the room.
it's a simple solution. simply turn up the volume if the headphones stop working. i know, it happened to me as well--before i read that part of the instructions. take care.
