Questions & Answers for Sony - 900MHz Analog RF Wireless Headphones - Black

Question

My headphones only work when I unplug power cord and plug it back in again?

Before using my headphones, I am required to unplug the power cord connected to the base and then plug it back in again. Once the green light activates, I am free to use my headphones. I have replaced batteries, read and reread manual, to no avail. I still love these but I'm not sure what other solutions, if any, are available.

If the audio signal is very weak, the Transmitter of the Sony MDR-RF970R Headphone stops sending RF Signals and the Power/Charge indicator turns OFF. Ensure that the Volume of the equipment connected is set to 5-6 or higher.

We suggest that you contact our Technical Support Team to troubleshoot the issue further, as more details would be required to diagnose the issue. You can contact our Technical Support Team via chat, E-mail or Telephone at:

I didn't like these and returned them. But your tv usually has a audio out of some type that you can hook these to and use them either with the tv playing also ( to help someone with poor hearing not drive everyone else crazy wit the volume) or with the tv muted. I have a surround sound hooked up to my audio out so i just bought and y adapter (recommended below) so i could have my headphone and surround sound hooked up at the same time.

Yes, the Sony MDR-RF970R Noise Reduction Wireless Headphone can be connected to a TV which does not have an earphone jack. It is supplied with a Transmitter for connecting to Audio/Video equipments. If the TV has a red and white Audio OUT port, connect it to the Transmitter using the connecting cord (supplied). If the TV does not have a red and white Audio OUT port, connect the Transmitter to the similar port on the Satellite Box.

You can charge the Battery supplied with the Headphones (MDR-RF970R) from 1 hour to 16 hours. One hour of charging the battery will let you use the Headphones for approximate 40 minutes. If you charge the Battery for 16 hours, then the headphones can be used for approximate 14 hours. When you’re using the headphones for the first time after purchase, it is recommended that you leave it to charge for 16 hours.

I think the manual says that the charge light should go off after 18 hours but mine also stayed on for over 2 days the first time. Now it goes off when I leave the headphones on the stand overnight. I don't think it is a problem as long as the phones work OK.

answer 2
The Power/Charge light of the Headphones (MDR-RF970R) lights up either in RED or GREEN. When it is lit up in RED, it indicates that the Battery is still charging.

Remove the Headphones and replace them on the transmitter again so that the POWER/CHARGE indicator lights in red. Charge in an environment temperature of between 0 degree Celsius and 40 degree Celsius.

When the indicator is lit up in GREEN, it indicates that the Headphones are removed from the transmitter and the audio signals are being received. Check if the indicator is red or green and try removing and re-inserting the Batteries into the Transmitter once.

Yes, but the iPad would need to stay connected to the base station. would lose the portability of the iPad.

YOu would be better off buying a quality set of portable headphones for use with your iPad/Ipod etc.
