Notes on receiving
performance
The system for this equipment utilizes very high
frequency signals in the 800 MHz band so the
receiving performance may deteriorate due to the
surroundings. The following examples illustrate
conditions that may reduce the possible receiving
range or cause interference with reception.
• Inside a building with walls containing steel
beams.
• Area with many steel file cabinets, etc.
• Area with many electrical appliances capable
of generating electromagnetic noise.
• Transmitter is placed on a metal instrument.
• Area facing a roadway.
• Noise or interfering signals exist in the
surroundings due to radio transceivers in
trucks, etc.
• Noise or interfering signals exist in the
surroundings owing to wireless
communication systems installed along
roadways.

Connect the transmitter to an AC outlet
using the supplied AC power adaptor.
Notes
• Use only the supplied AC power adaptor. Do not use
any other AC power adaptor.
Charging the
headphone battery
Using the headphones for the first time
When you use the headphones for the first time,
charge the battery in the following manner.
1
Connect the transmitter to a power
source.
Polarity of the plug
Transmitter
• When you connect the transmitter directly to a
monaural earphone jack, the audio signal will not be
output through the right channel. In such a case, use
the separately sold PC-236HG plug adaptor.
• If the connected equipment has the AVLS (Automatic
Volume Limiter System) function, be sure to turn the
function off when using the transmitter. Otherwise,
you will have to turn up the volume of the
headphones, and that may cause noise.

charged.
Once 24 hours have elapsed since the start of
battery charging, the charger automatically shuts
off, and the green indicator goes out.

When you put on the headphones the
headphone power turns on
automatically.
Turn up the volume to a moderate
level with the VOL control.
Press the TUNING button briefly for
automatic tuning of the headphones.
If you do not receive a clear audio
signal, press it again.
Sending RF signals from the Transmitter
The transmitter starts sending the RF signals
automatically, when it detects audio signals from
the equipment connected.
If it does not detect an audio signal for more than
approximately four minutes, the transmitter will
stop sending RF signals, and the power indicator
turns off.
When the transmitter receives an audio signal
again, it starts sending the RF signals, and the
power indicator will light in red again.
If the audio signal is very weak, the transmitter
does not send RF signals. If the transmitter is
connected to a headphone jack, make sure the
volume of the equipment connected is set to 5 – 6
or higher.
You may not hear the beginning of the sound
from the headphones until the transmitter starts
sending the RF signals after detecting an audio
signal.
Auto power on/off function
When you remove the headphones from your
head, the power turns off automatically. Do not
allow the self adjusting band to be pulled up,
otherwise the headphones will be switched on.

Note
If a hissing noise is heard move closer to the transmitter.
The effective areas of
the transmitter
The optimum distance is up to approximately
100 m without the system picking up some
interference. However, the distance may vary
according to the surroundings and environment.
If the system picks up noise, reduce the distance
between the transmitter unit and the
headphones, or select the other channel.
Replacing the ear pads
When the ear pads become dirty or damaged,
you can get replacements from your Sony dealer.
Replace them as illustrated below.
1
Remove the old ear pad by pulling it
out of the groove on the housing.
Notes
• When you use the headphones inside the effective
areas of the transmitter, the transmitter can be placed
in any direction from the listener.
• Even within the signal reception area, there are some
spots (dead spot) where the RF signal can not be
received. This characteristics is inherent to RF signals,
and does not indicate malfunction. By slightly moving
the transmitter, location of the dead spot can be
changed.
2
Place the new ear pad on the driver
unit and insert the edge of the pad into
the groove as illustrated.
Make sure that the entire edge of the ear pad is
securely inserted into the groove.

Preventing hearing damage
Avoid using headphones at high volume.
Hearing experts advise against continuous, loud
and extended play. If you experience a ringing in
your ears, reduce the volume or discontinue use.

considerate to the people around you.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning the system that are not covered in this
manual, please consult the nearest Sony dealer.
Be sure to bring the headphones and the
transmitter to the Sony dealer when requiring
repair work.
Disposing of the headphones
