Question about Sony MDR-RF970RK Headphones

2 Answers

Help Hello I have a question that may seem simple to audio experts but i am stumped. I recently bought my grandfather the MDR-RF970RK from best buy. The outcome I wanted was to be able to watch tv with its external speakers and allow my hearing impaired grandfather to listen via the headphones. I can not find a way to hook these up without turning off the speakers. If anyone out there can help me I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hello,
few tv sets have extra head phone volume option but many has either way, I mean if you put head phone, speakers will be off.
I dont know the model n make of your tv set.

SOURCE: can these be hooked up so you can hear the tv external speakers as well?

I have the headset running through an amplifier so my wife can listen at her volume level and I can adjust the headset volume for myself. The volume dial on the amp is set to zero; but the audio output jacks still provide plenty of volume to the headset. You can get a reasonable amplified for $100 or less

I do not know how to connect the headphone to the TV. can you please explain? thank you


You need to connect its base-station to the TV, it should have a cable which plugs into the Audio Out of the TV (should look like a normal headphones jack).

Hi,
You can use MDR-RF925R with any thing that has Line Out RCA jacks and your tv should have TV Audio Out RCA jacks to connect this wireless headphone.

We just bought a viore 19" class lcd and can't figure out how to hook up our new sony wireless MDR-RF925RK RF headphones so that one person can hear the tv and no one else can hear the sound.


After doing some searching for the TV you mentioned, it appears it doesn't have any outputs to plug the headphones. Website says it only has inputs. You would need a monitor or a fixed audio out for this to function as you wish. Sorry.
