Question about Sennheiser RS 120 Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

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

I have a 2006 Sony Bravia TV. The green light is on, and I charged the headphones for over 24 hrs per the manual instructions. I plugged the RCA adaptor into the headphone jack of the tv, and then plugged the red and white RCA jacks into the adaptor. I've tried tuning on all 3 frequencies, and nothing but static. HELP!

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

What are you plugging your 2 RCA connectors (from the headphones) into on the television?
You are correct, usually:
White = Left Red = Right

In this case
Black = Left Red = Right
Not sure....guess some manufacturers need to be different...
Back to the issue,
You to need to connect the Black to White and Red to Red to the TV BUT you need to make sure you are connecting to an OUTPUT and not to an INPUT on the TV. Most newer TV's do have an "audio out RCA jacks" on the TV but not all. It should be labeled at the connector if it is an output, or just another input. You can always consult the TV manual to be sure.

Few things you can do to test

  • Does your TV have a "headphone jack", use the adapter (2 RCA female - 3.5mm connector) to plug into the headphone jack and see if there is sound
  • Connect the Black and Red RCAs from the headphones directly to the another output, like a DVD player, CD Player etc....

I hope this helps,
Magoo

I can't get sound through my headphones on my Bravia kdl-52xbr5 tv. First time I have tried to hook up the headphones which are sharper image wireless


I take it the headphones are charged up and known to be in good working order? Are you using the 3.5mm headphone jack on the side of the TV or the white and red RCA jacks labeled AUDIO OUT (VAR/FIX)? If using the headphone jack the TV should shut off the internal speakers and output to the headphones. If using the mentioned RCA jacks you need to go into the audio options settings and set to Audio System. Also under audio settings, Audio Out, you can pick Fixed or Variable. If you opt for Fixed you will use the headphones to adjust the volume. If you opt for Variable you can control the headphone volume and muting using your TV remote control. Just make sure you have the headphone volume turned up adequately.

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.

I have a huge problem with these headphones (the Sennheiser HDR 120)... and my wife bought two of them... They have great sound on the computer, but once the green light turns off on the base? There...


The volume of the sound source (Mac) must be sufficient, otherwise the transmitter automatically turns off. Turn up the volume on the Mac, and turn down the volume on the headphones. There is no way to disable the Automatic On/Off function of the transmitter.

What type of audio connection is needed to connect headphones to the Sony Bravia, model KDL-40S5100


The problem wiht this TV is that it does not have headphone output jack (spec: http://www.reviewed.com/product/Sony/Bravia-KDL-40S5100/specs.htm)

You will have to use:
1) AUDIO line out jacks (RCA RED and WHITE JACKS) of the TV connected to small headphone amplifier to drive your headphone.
2) you will have to trun off the TV built-in speakers using on screen audio set up.
3) Set the TV audio line out to be VARIABLE instead of FIXED level if you want to use the remote control to control the level of the audio output feeding the headphone amplifier.

As you can see, it is real simple setup.

Example of headphone amp;

Same one at AMAZON: http://www.amazon.com/Upbeat-Audio-T613-BNC-Boostaroo-Application/dp/B000EIWCFE/ref=pd_sxp_grid_pt_1_0

Notes: you will need RCA plugs to mini-stereo phone jack adapter since this unit does not have RCA INPUT JACKS.
