Question about Sennheiser RS130 Headset

1 Answer

Intermittent power?? I just got the RS140 for use with my laptop. I've got it plugged into the wall and into my PC. The headphones are on the transmitter and charging. The green Power light comes on for a minute or two and then goes off. It just keeps going on and off every few minutes. Is that normal? This is the first charge. Also, I've not seen anything about using these with my laptop but I'm assuming they're compatible, right? Thanks! Larry

Larry, The green power automatically detects the source when you plug it in. If the volume is too low or non-existent (under-modulation) the green light automatically switches off in 10 minutes after you've plugged the transmitter into the source. At least that's what the manual says. It should work with a laptop.

How do i use my infared headphones and can i use them on my laptop

You should be able to use infrared headphones with your laptop. You don't give a brand or model, but they're all pretty much the same. The transmitter connects to an audio source (and to a power source as well, so you'll need an AC outlet nearby) with the appropriate cable, and you just put the headphone on and turn on the power. Some headphones take regular batteries, while others have a rechargeable battery like a cordless phone; those are recharged when you hang the headphones back on the transmitter.

The couple of infrared headphone systems I've used both had RCA input jacks. The headphone jack on a laptop takes a 1/8-inch mini-stereo plug, so you'll need an adapter with a regular stereo patch cord (RCA plugs at both ends) or a cable with the right plug on the computer end and RCA plugs at the other. Radio Shack sells both.

If you have questions about your headphones, you can usually find a downloadable manual at the manufacturer's website.

I have a Latitude D600 laptop. When I plug in my headphones, the sound still plays through the built in speakers. When I twist the plug in the jack I can sometimes get sound in the headphones but it still...

I dont think the JACK is the problem, I suspect a bad headphone wire (intermittent) or an incorrect driver, headphone jacks in laptops are software controlled, (no mechanical switch inside) if you hear sound in both the headphones and the speakes it is a driver issue, try updating the driver, if the headphone wire is erratic it can fool the software that controlls the input and do crazy things also...

Good luck!

No sound from RS130 headphones

I'm having the same problem with the RS140. Only a few weeks old, and no sound at all coming out (not even the beeps). Have replaced batteries and tried a different audio source. Base station lights are on and indicating it is receiving an audio signal, but nothing is going go the headphones.

My laptop stop charging.

Batteries get old and wear out. Be use AC outlet is working. Check for power light on AC/DC charger box between laptop and AC.

It is common for Laptop charging/power connectors to get worn and/or loose(intermittent). Try to get charging light on PC by wiggling power connection to PC.

If not, if you have a VoltOhmMeter(VOM). check for 5V on barrel power connector on the charger side, that plugs into PC, Outside conductor is GND and Inner connector is (+5V). VOMs are cheap at RadioShack or AutoParts stores and are a handy tool to have around the house. Book shows you how to measure. PC is 120V AC on Wall side of PC Power Supply from Wall Outlet, and 5V DC on PC side of Charger.

Charger may be defective. Cheap on Ebay.

Hissing and poor sound quality

Well it could be interference from the TV, computer, or other 900Mhz device (some wireless routers run on this frequency).

I'm currently dealing with the same issue myself, if I find a solution I'll post back.
