Safety instructions
앫
Please read these instructions carefully and completely
before using the system.
앫
Make these instructions easily accessible to all users at all
times. Always include these instructions when passing the
system on to third parties.
앫
Do not wear the headphones in situations which require special attention (e.g. when performing skilled jobs).
앫
Keep the headphones at least 10 cm/3.94” from cardiac pacemakers or implanted defibrillators. The headphones contain
magnets that generate a magnetic field which could cause interference with cardiac pacemakers and implanted defibrillators.
앫
Always keep the system dry and do not expose it to extreme
temperatures (ideally 10-35°C).
앫
Use the system with care and set it up in a clean, dust-free
environment.
앫
Varnish or furniture polish may degrade the feet of the transmitter, which could stain your furniture. You should therefore place the transmitter on a non-slip pad to avoid potential staining of furniture.
앫
This system allows you to set higher volumes than conventional stethoset systems. This can cause hearing damage in
persons with healthy hearing and especially in children.
앫
Please observe the safety instructions for Lithium-Ion
rechargeable batteries on the enclosed leaflet.
앫
Ensure that the mains unit is readily operable, easily accessible and properly plugged into the wall socket.
앫
Unplug the mains plug from the wall socket to disconnect the
product from the mains during lightning storms or when
unused for long periods of time.
앫
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not use the
product near water and do not expose it to rain or moisture.
Intended use of the system
Intended use includes:
2
앫
having read these instructions, especially the chapter “Safety instructions”.
앫
using the system within the operating conditions as described in these instructions.
Improper use

The IS 410 stethoset receiver system
The IS 410 is a cordless infra-red stethoset receiver system with
which you can adjust the volume of your TV, radio, personal
stereo and other hi-fi equipment to suit your individual needs.
In addition, the system allows you to move around freely
without the constrictions of cables within the room where the
transmitter is placed.
The IS 410 is particularly easy and intuitive to operate. The
stethoset receiver automatically switches on when you pull the
earbows apart. The volume can be adjusted directly on the
receiver. The speech intelligibility can be enhanced at the press
of a button on the transmitter.
The transmitter has an integrated charging compartment for
storing the receiver and simultaneously charging the receiver’s
rechargeable battery. In addition, a spare rechargeable battery
can be charged in the small charging compartment at the side
of the transmitter.

Putting the system into operation
Setting up the transmitter
왘 Place the transmitter so that there are no obstacles in the
light path between transmitter and receiver.
Note:
Avoid exposure to direct sunlight. Direct sunlight may interfere with the reception and may damage the transmitter.
If you use a plasma TV screen, please observe the following to
ensure interference-free reception:
앫
Make sure that the transmitter’s infrared light beam is pointed directly at the receiver and that the light path between
transmitter and receiver is not obstructed.
앫
If necessary, use a standard extension cable (3.5 mm stereo
jack plug) to reduce the distance between transmitter and
receiver. This extension cable is available from your Sennheiser dealer.
Connecting the transmitter to the sound source
왘 Plug in one end of the connecting cable to the blue AUDIO
socket on the transmitter.
왘 Check the connection possibilities of your sound source (e.g.

setting of your TV.
Note:
With most TVs, the headphone socket is located at the front
or sides. Depending on the socket, you may have to use the
adapter .
In order to prevent damage to hearing, newer TVs often have a
function that mutes the TV sound as soon as headphones are
connected.
왘 If another person wants to listen to the TV sound via the
loudspeaker, deactivate the muting function via the TV menu
setting.
