CONNECTIONS
CONNECTING
THE
TRANSMITTER
The ARWH2 requires no software to setup, so you can start using the unit right
away.
1. Plug the transmitter USB plug into an available USB port on your computer.
2. Press the Power button on the receiver to turn it on. The indicator comes on
and turns blue when the receiver and transmitter are linked.
Note: The transmitter and receiver are pre-linked for communication at the
factory, but if the indicator on the receiver flashes blue when you turn it on, the
units may need to be linked. To link them, press and hold the receiver’s Power
button and the transmitter’s LINK button for 3 seconds. The indicator turns
solid blue when both units are linked.
3. Plug your headphones or the included earbuds into the headphone jack on
the receiver.
4. Open your music or communication software on your computer, and your
ARWH2 is now ready to use.
Note: The headphone jack on the receiver uses a 3.5mm standard headphone
plug, so if you want to use a headset or earpiece from your cell phone, you will
need to use an adapter.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
TROUBLESHOOTING
The following troubleshooting guide takes you through some of the more
common problems associated with the installation and/or operation of a
wireless system. If the problem persists, please call toll-free 1-800-732-6866 or
visit www.araccessories.com.

POWER
Make sure the receiver is charged and that the transmitter is properly
connected to your computer. Try another USB port and use one directly on
your computer, if possible (e.g. not through a hub).
SOUND
Make sure the receiver is charged. If the indicator is red, the battery is low.
Check that your music or communications software is transmitting sound as
it normally should. Make sure the sound is not muted through the software.
The ARWH2 is not set as the default audio device in your PC’s system setup.
Use the audio settings in Windows® under Sounds and Audio Devices to
select the ARWH2 as the audio output.
Confirm that the receiver is turned on and linked to the transmitter (the
indicator is steady blue). If the indicator is flashing blue, the receiver is not
linked to the transmitter. Press and hold the LINK button on the transmitter
and the Power button on the receiver for 3 seconds to link the units.

SKYPE

SOUND
Make sure the receiver is charged. If the indicator is red, the battery is low.
You may be out of range. Move closer to the transmitter. Sending the signal
through certain materials, such as glass, tile, and metal, can decrease the
effective transmitting distance of the system.
ISN’T WORKING RIGHT
Make sure Skype is set up correctly in the Tools menu. See page 9 for
details on how to enable keyboard shortcuts.
LISTEN SAFELY!
Enjoy your earphones at a safe volume. Avoid or limit the amount of time you
listen at higher volumes—permanent hearing loss may occur if the earphones
are used at too high a volume. If you experience a ringing in your ears, or
your own voice and other sounds seem muffled, stop using the earphones and
consult a hearing professional.
