I can only get static on my rs 120 head phones


Sennheiser remote/cordless headphones are ordinarily very dependable. From your description it sounds like the problem is with the base unit. Try power-cycling the base with the headphones sitting on the charger cradle (red charging light must be on when you do this) - Unplug the power cord for about 10 or 15 seconds then plug it back in. This action should cause the base and the headset to go through the automatic pairing process. Once the base is paired with the headset, it should begin working again. Check also the channel pushbutton on one of the headphones. Hope this helps!!

Why do I get only static on Sennheiser 120 after replacing the batteries?


Sorry I have not had that problem with batteries but have had other noises and I usually stop using the headphones for a while and hang them up and start again.

Sennheiser RS 120 headphones won't work, only hear static


Adjust the tuning wheel on the side of the headphones so it picks it up.

This problem is quite logical; another nearby transmition is received by your headphones and you have to change the channel. The best solution is to locate the nearby transmition (what does it says, where is it and any other details) and in case it's coming from a neighboor using some kind of the same headphones, ask him/her to change his frequency (channel). Another solution is to change your transmitter place so that your signal will come stronger at the headphones. Also sometimes replacing the batteries fix the problem.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Is there a tuning swith on the unit? if yes, then turn on audio source you are looking to use. if tv then turn on tv

now you need to use the tuning switch like a radio to tune until you hear the audio.

No sound on left ear


I will assume you have tried tuning them via the control mounted on the headphones and still get nothing from the left ear.


First try a different channel setting on the base and retune the headphones.. if this doesn't fix it..


Check all your connections.. at the headphone base as well as the source.


Also I suggest trying them on a different source.


Since you did not mention what the source is.. I will make a few additional suggestions.


If plugged into an amplifier.. try repeated switching between output sources.. If the amp is playing fine through both speakers.. pick up an inexpensive adapter that will allow you to plug the red and white rca jacks into a headphone jack, then try HP output. (some RS 120 units shipped with this adapter)


If the source is the television itself check the connections on the back.. and check your balance settings on the sets main menu.


Depending on how old the headphones are along with frequency of use you may need new batteries.


Make sure the batteries are fully charged.. remove them and test the voltage.. they can do this for you at Radio Shack if you don't own a volt ohm meter or some other testing device.


Replacement batteries are not that expensive.. just make sure you replace them with the exact type (AAA - NiMH) and allow plenty of time for them to charge before use (overnight)


This last bit of advice I suggest caution.


You can put a fresh set of AAA standard batteries in the headphones and test them.. DO NOT PUT THE HEADPHONES ON THE CHARGING CRADLE with these batteries or you MAY DAMAGE THE HEADPHONES.


In fact I suggest you place a piece of tape or something on the cradle before you do this to remind you.. once you finish testing the headphones with standard non rechargeable batteries .. again trying different settings and tunings the set.. If they work .. you probably need a new set of rechargeable batteries..


This is a quick and dirty way of testing/comparing.. but REMOVE the standard batteries immediately after this test. Placing the headphones on the charging cradle with standard batteries in place could cause them to rupture and leak into the headphones.. so again.. be careful if you decide to test them in this fashion.


Good luck!

Wireless infrared stereo headphone no sound


You do not need to tune anything. Both transmitter (in your DVD player) and headphone operate at the same frequency.

The only thing I could think of is to check your DVD player's menu to make sure the transmitter is activated. And make sure you maintain line of sight between headphone and transmitter.

But rather then me guessing since you did not provide the model numbers of your products, why don't you contact XO Vision's customer service as listed on their website: http://www.xovision.com/contactus.php

Good luck.

Red light isn't indicating it detects source


I have the same model as you.

Plug in the transmitting unit into a good working power outlet. Make sure you have the audio connected to a loud source. Turn on the source device producing the loud audio to be transmitted to your headphones. (This being your IPod - Turn it full blast). Now see if the transmitting unit's LED light is on. Check headphones for audio. (May have to tune in the headphones till green and adjust its volume as well).

Note: Some radio stations bleed over into the headphones and you may have gotten the "Beautiful Music" from this radio station frequency harmonic anomaly. Keep tuning your headphones till you hear your music or audio source.

I recommend that the source of your audio have its built-in speakers off, while still providing audio out to your transmitting unit, via an external audio output. Check your source manual or look for audio jacks on the front or back. There may be a setting to turn this on and for the main built-in speakers to be turned off as well.

If this does not work, unplug the transmitting unit, and then plug it back in again, after waiting for about 10 seconds - all while audio is being provided to the unit. It should come on.

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!

On/Off not lit when plugged in


There is help for this in the user manual. Possible solutions I would try:

1. Make sure your source sound (TV, amp etc) is up high enough - if the sound is too low the headphones won't detect a signal.

2. Try changing the channel (the switch on the bottom left of the cradle base) and pressing the "Tune" button on your headphones. Try all three positions, pressing "Tune" at least 3 times in each position.

3. Take out batteries & turn off base, leave for 30 secs, reassamble and try step 2 again.

Should all work ok. I've been using mine for over a year and they're great!
