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

Question

Can these be used by one person while also letting everyone else hear the TV?

We have one person in our family who is hard of hearing and we are looking for headphones for him to use that will also allow us to hear the TV while he is wearing headphones. Will this product allow that?

answer 1
yeah, definitely. just hook it up through the receiver or back of cable/satellite box. i used the audio outputs for these headphones and then an hdmi for hooking up to the tv. if you're using straight a/v cables for the tv and cable you'll have to buy some y-cables to split up the signal.

That depends on your TV. If it has a headphone mini plug, using that usually cuts off the speakers. Better to use the RCA audio output connectors (if you have them) these will not kill the speakers.

Yes, it will work.
You do not need to buy a receiver like the previous person stated. My guess is you have a simple TV set up, without an elaborate surround sound, and the answer below should work for you.

Go to Best Buy and purchase two “Y” splitters as shown in this link (Model: DX-AD102 | SKU: 9390633). One side should be a “Male” end and the other two sides (the splitting part) will be “Female” ends.

Take the two “Y” splitters and plug one “Male” end into the Red and the other "Male" end into the White Audio Outs on your cable box or whatever you have sending the audio out to the TV or speakers. The other ends (Female), one Red and one White each, go to each of your Wireless Headset (use the supplied adaptor) and the Red/White Audio Inputs on the TV. All done, and it will only cost you about $9.

I am sure it would work depending on how you choose to hook it up. The headphones has its own volume control so it could be loud without having to turn the TV volume up.

the MDR-RF970RK headphones have RCA component Inputs. If your TV supports 2 zone speakers then yes, otherwise an A/V receiver would be necessary to provide multi channel speaker outputs.

I don't think there is a definite range, but I've gotten a pretty good range with mine. I've had it plugged into my computer in my room while playing music, then walked down the hall and outside into my driveway and I could still hear the music. But the further away you go, and the more surfaces (like walls) that the signal has to go through, the more static you will get and the sound might cut-out and break-up every now and then.

Yes they can be used for any device that has RCA outputs. TVs, stereos, CD players, portable DVD players, etc.

There is also a 1/4" input for portable devices such as cellphones, Ipods, MP3 players.

Also the battery life is over 12 hours in my experience of using them in case you were wondering as well.

Theoretically you can use these earphones to watch and hear TV provided your TV has a headphone jack. I do not recommend these headphones. My experience was a battery life of 15 minutes.

What Sony said is true, but if you do it that way, you are losing 1080 HD for both videos and gaming by using the RCA input for the PS3. Instead of 1080, you'll be getting 480 resolution maximum, which is terrible imo. I'm not sure if it would work if you used the component PS3 plug, and run the red + white to the Sony Base. Sony?

Are you using an amplifier? If you are, then it will work no problem. You just plug it into the audio jack of your amp, and you're good to go. It even comes with the necessary adapter. If you're NOT using an amplifier, I don't know, but if I had to guess, I would say that they would not work. These use 900MZ, and the PS3 uses Bluetooth :)

The charging base has two audio options in the rear for input. The first is RCA right/left connections (comes with adapter to connect to PC) and a second 1/4" connector which can be used to input a CD player, MP3 player, etc.

All you need is a RCA audio cable to plug the base into the TV or stereo.

The MDR-RF970R is a European model wireless headset; as such there is limited information in the US market database. However, in general the RF wireless headphones are supplied with a base station that serves as the link between the headset and the stereo system. The base station will both charge the headset and transmit/receive signal from the headset.

Question

Can these headphones be used by someone while having the tv in mute?

I have to study sometimes in the living room, so other people can't watch tv at the same time. So I want to know if the tv can be placed in mute but still be heard just through the headphones

Two possibilities:
1) I have mine connected to the cable box so the volume on the TV doesn't matter. You can also hook it up to a surround sound system and turn the volume down.
2) if the TV has a HeadSet jack, using that cuts out the speakers.

If you place your Television on Mute no Audio will transmit from the TV at all. with the MDR-RF970R connect directly to either a headphone port if your Television has one, or the RCA audio out to the input of the RCA jack ports on the base of the MDR-RF970R. be sure to change the audio settings in your television to output to the RCA jacks instead of the internal speakers.

The instructions tell you to contact SONY, or the store you purchased them. The instructions also tell you that you can use 2 AAA regular batteries, or 2 rechargeable AAA batteries, but you must charge them first using a battery charger, you cannot charge regular rechargeable batteries using the charging feature on the SONY headphones.
