Questions & Answers for Sennheiser Wireless RF Stereo Headphones - Black

Question

Do you have to unplug them from the TV to hear the TV speakers?

We have a set of Sennheiser headphones but to hear the TV speakers you have to unplug the wire from the transmitter to be able to hear the TV speakers. On another set (not Sennheiser) you just put the headphones in the cradle and the sound switches from the headphones to the TV. Unplugging the headphones is a pain for my elderly dad to deal with - please advise.

Thanks for your inquiry. This muting depends on the TV, not the headphones. If you are utilizing a headphone jack on the TV, plugging anything into that jack will typically mute the loudspeakers of the TV. If you plug into the red and white (RCA style) jacks labeled "Audio Out" this will typically not mute the TV.

You can always try plugging in your wireless headphones to the "Audio Out" jacks of your cable/sattelite box, and bypassing the TV all together. This works well for many users. Hope this helps.

The RS series of headphones can connect via the RCA or headphone jacks on your components. Generally speaking, the following occurs when you connect a Sennheiser wireless headphone to your component:

1) connected to the RCA audio output jacks: You can operate volume levels independently. You can also shut off the main speakers via a menu and continue output to the transmitter (newer components). This allows you to keep everything plugged in.
2) connected to the headphone jack plug: The speakers will automatically shut off once you plug the jack into the socket. Your volume is now dependent on the level of your component, and if the headphones are plugged in.

The transmitter's sole purpose is to take whatever audio signal it is given, and send it to the receiver/headphone. HOpefully you can locate a set of RCA audio outputs and connect your RS series that way.

Yes, they absolutely can :) You can simply set each transmitter to 1 of 3 available transmit-frequencies. As long as each transmitter is on a different channel, they will operate along side each other without interfering with the other transmitter.

If your LCD Tv has audio outputs in either RCA (the red and white plugs) or a headphone plug, you're all set and this will make a fantastic accessory to your new TV.

Regular alkaline batteries should not be used in this headphone. The NiMH batteries included last around 2 years with regular use, for about 22 hours per charge. This is far more cost effective than using regular batteries.

Hello-

At extremely loud volumes, yes, some sound will leak out. At nominal volumes, the leakage is minimal.
