Question about Sennheiser RS 65 Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

Headphones cut in and out - distorted sound

My RS 65s worked awesome for 2-3 years, but suddenly things changed. Now they constantly cut in and out and the bass is all distorted. I cannot figure out if the batteries are done for, or whether it is a transmission problem or what. Any ideas? I need to know if I should just replace something or buy a whole new pair.

I have had these great headphones over 15 years (I think!)
1. Are the batteries getting a full 8 hour charge?
2. Have you tried all 3 channel options?
3. Is there anything else close by that is an RF transmitter or receiver? If so, move the headphone base or other RF instrument away from each other.
4. If these are the original batteries you probably need new ones.
5. When purchasing new batteries I recommend original equipment Sennheiser BA151 batteries, not any other brand. I have tried 3 or 4 other brands, all with less than satisfying results. I have no affiliation with Sennheiser corp., just a consumer of their products (and Grado's for wired headphones)
Good luck!

My sennhauser 110 only work on left speaker ,nothing ,no sound on right?????headphones


The first thing to do is to disconnect the Sennheiser wireless unit and try another headphone, preferably a cable type and see if both channels work. If the sound is OK on both channels, the fault is within the headphones. If you are lucky it will be the wireless unit plug or the cable and can easily be tested and repaired by somebody familiar with electronics. Otherwise you will probably need to have it repaired by a service shop or a technician. I hope the guarantee is stilll valid.

Dirty volume control on headphones. Try moving the volume control back and forth several times to clean off the contacts.

Work fine for about 5 minutes than change to static


There's an auto-shutoff feature which kicks in when the audio input to the transmitter is too low. That's usually indicated by the green light on the transmitter turning off. Just increase the volume on the device connected to the transmitter, and you should see the green light come back on. As long as that's on, it'll stay transmitting and shouldn't just cut out to static.

Try connecting them to an MP3 player or connect wired headphones to the same source to make sure the sound source is working correctly. If that works, verify the voltage on the batteries is 2.4 volts after charging. Mine stopped charging fully and the headphones wouldn't work at all, but when I connected a couple of AAA batteries to it in series, it worked great.

If your headphones are in warranty (under a year old) Bose will repair or more likely replace them with a new pair. I am now on my forth pair or Bose in-ear headphones and experienced the same problem with an ear piece stop working. I have to say Bose customer service has been fantastic and has replaced each pair. Every new pair is then covered by a new full years warranty. Unfortunately my fourth pair has just gone wrong with the same connector problem. Bose again have said they will replace as they are in warranty. I have been told if they are out of warranty they will offer a new pair at a discount price of £50 instead of £80. However i think that if my new pair go wrong out of warranty i will have no option but to look at alternatives.A Pair of headphones that cost £80 should last more than a year!!!

Cutt the 3.5mm ********. You will need to cutt the cable about 10cm from the plug end to make certain you clear the damaged area. Buy a new Jack. You will need to solder the wires on. You will find when you have baired back the cable two coloured wires and two earths. The earths fit together on the metal flange that comes out of the main body of the plug. The coloured wires go on the the two smaller flanges (left and right channels). If you get them wrong way round reverse them you won't do any damage. Make certain the earths don't come into contact with the R & L channels wires or terminals and the left or right don't touch each other. The T shaped end on the large flange is to grip the cable body, bend the tabs to grip the cable.

My turtle beach x4 headphones make a loud screeching noise whenever I turn them on. They have worked perfectly fine for about a year, and all of a sudden this happens.


I'm assuming you changed the batteries? If so, it sounds like the unit is broken. If you purchased it within the last year and have a receipt, contact our customer service department for a warranty repair.

My set has an led that glows red when on...if batteries in correctly, and switch on...do you have a red "POWER" indicator. If yes, & still no sound, 1-does the other set work? 2- either side of prob set work? 3-VOLUME up all the way? Could be bad receiver/bad speaker(s) bad vol switch.
IF no POWER led on, then 1-bad batteries 2-bad power switch 3-broken internal power lead/wire.
