PHILIPS HEADPHONES SBC hc 8440

I have charged my phlips wireless headphones since 1 p.m. yesterday until 10.30 this morning. I have tried to use them but without success.

I have the ariel, the charging wires, the headphones and a separate adapter with a plug plus a little adapter to link to other equipment.

Could you help me use this product? I am not obviously understanding what does go where other than I think I have charged it correctly as the red
light comes on the headphones.

I am not at all technically minded!

    Hi

    I have just purchased a set of Philips Wireless Headphones SBC HC8440 and I have been looking on the internet of a manual or better instructions. The instructions that were supplied with the product are just pictures and

    they are not very clear.

    I am not technically minded and it does not clearly show which lead goes into which socket, I'd hate to blow them up or worse still myself.

    Thanks MREED

Hi there!
OK I know it is little late to response but if someone will google it, might find the solution, they are still selling it though. I just got my set as a xmas present so here is the way it works..
First plug the batteries into the headset, there is gonna be small power in it, however you have to charge it. So connect the small charging cable into the base unit and the headset and make sure the switch on the head set is off. Green LED light will appear on the base unit. Let it charge for 16 hours. After is charged you can unplug the small charging cable.
OK now how it works.
The base unit needs to be always plugged-in to the electricity supply. Connect the audio connector from the base to the e.g. TV, PC, DVD player, mp3 player... After you plug-in the audio connector red LED light will automatically light on the base unit.
There is is two channels what you can use, that's in case if you have two of the same wireless sets. So if on the base is set to # 1 the headset needs to be also on # 1. Then if you have second headset choose channel # 2 on the base and also on the headset # 2, so they are not crossing each other.
Now press switch on button on the headset and red LED light will appear. There is nothing wrong with the red light. That's just the way it is..
OK that's it. Adjust the volume on the headset and you should be able to listen to the music.. :)

Hope it was helpful.

Bought a set of wireless headphones but they only have a small headphone jack (size of Ipod headphones) to connect the transmitter to dvd player. How do I connect?


Get an adapter to convert whatever stereo plug you have to whatever stereo jack you want it to mate with. I imagine the wireless headphone documentation discusses that.

I want to connect a wireless headphone to my system, how do I do this


nstall the USB dongle as the manufacturer instructs you and make sure it’s switched on. Next, fire up your headphones (don’t forget to charge them first). Now remember that most headphones have two different start-up modes. The first time you switch them on you’ll need to pair them with the USB computer. This is done by holding the power button on for at least 4 or 5 seconds (you should read the instructions manual to find out exactly how to do it).

After this is done, you’ll need to scan for Bluetooth devices from your PC. Just start up the software and use it to see what Bluetooth devices you have around. The scan should take a few seconds and after finishing, the software should display a list containing your headphones. Remember that other devices such as mobile phones may be detected if their Bluetooth modules are activated during the scanning process.

tb_zoom.gif Select the headphones and go on to the next step. The software should provide you with two choices. You should be able to pair the device as Stereo Headphones or Headset. Choose headset and go to the next step. A pin will be required in order to pair the device. Most default pins are 0000, but you should check the manual in order to be sure.

The headphones will start ringing and you will be required to press the Call/Answer/Power button (do it). Also, a name should be provided for this connection. You can name it anything you like. My software also allows me to place an icon on the desktop and just double click it when I need to connect my headphones with my laptop.

These should be the basic steps when pairing a device for the first time. Now, if I want to connect my headphones with my laptop I can just activate them (in non-pairing mode) and double click my desktop icon to establish a connection.

You can also repeat the steps above in order to pair your device as stereo headphones. After switching on the device, just double click the connection you desire and everything will work flawlessly.
