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.

To connect the headphones to your TV you need to connect the base to the audio outputs of your TV set. It is recommended that you check to make sure your TV has audio outputs first.

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.

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 :)

answer 2
I don't know how you would use these with Skype, they do not have a microphone. So unless your laptop has one built in or you have an external one, they would be useless for that.

As for the TV and laptop, the answer is yes. The base of the headphones has two inputs in the back for two sources, both of which can be used at the same time to recieve two audio signals. I don't know why someone would want to do that, but yes they can be connected to two devices at once. 1 set of RCA red/white connections and one portable connection (3.5mm jack which can be used to connect to a laptop or any audio input on a computer)

Yes, you can use up to 3. My guess is that if you set both headsets to the same channel, you can use both with only 1 tranmitter.

I don't see why not. However, you would probably need to buy two Y splitters to split the left and right channel to from the TV to compensate to connect both at the same time. i.e. the red and white rca cable input from the tv would need a y splitter cable in each channel to make it two channels instead of a single channel.

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.
