THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.

Your headphones might cause TV or radio interference even when operating properly. To determine whether your headphones are causing the interference, turn off your headphones. If the interference goes away, your headphones are causing it. Try to eliminate the interference by:

Moving your headphones’ transmitter away from the receiver

Connecting your headphones’ transmitter to an outlet that is on a different electrical circuit different from the receiver

Consult your local RadioShack store for help.

If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop using your headphones.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by RadioShack may cause interference and void the userís authority to operate the equipment.

BATTERY INSTALLATION

Open the battery compartment by sliding the compartment cover in the direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Install two AAA alkaline batteries in accordance with the polarity symbol ( + ) diagram printed on the base of the compartment.

Replace the battery compartment cover.

Note: There is a short, black ribbon attached to the interior of the battery compartment. Install the batteries on top of this ribbon and place the excess ribbon on top of the batteries. This ribbon will facilitate future battery replacement (i.e., to remove the batteries, simply grab the exposed ribbon and pull upwards).

Battery Notes

Follow these precautions when using batteries in this device:

1.Use only the size and type of batteries specified.

2.Be sure to follow the correct polarity when installing the batteries as indicated in the battery compartment. Reversed batteries may cause damage to the device.

3.Do not mix different types of batteries together (e.g. Alkaline and Carbon-zinc)or old batteries with fresh ones.

4.If the device is not to be used for a long period of time, remove the batteries to prevent damage or injury from possible battery leakage.

5.Do not try to recharge batteries not intended to be recharged; they can overheat and rupture. (Follow battery manufacturer’s instructions.)

A FINAL WORD ABOUT THOSE AAA BATTERIES.

To preserve the life of the batteries, always turn the Headphones OFF when not in use. If the red LED does not light when the headset is turned on, it is an indication that the batteries are not supplying sufficient power. Make certain the batteries have been properly installed or replace them with fresh batteries.

PLUGGING IN & TURNING ON

1.Locate a 120 volt AC outlet no more than approximately five feet from the sound system and plug the Transformer on the end of the AC/DC Power Cord into the outlet.

(This Transformer converts standard 120 volt AC household current into 12 volt DC current).

2.Plug the other end of the AC/DC Power Cord into the AC/DC input jack on the underside of the Transmitter base.

3.Plug the Audio Cord leading from the underside of the Transmitter base into the audio output jack on your sound system. Sound system jacks typically are labeled “audio out,” “earphones” or “phones.”

Note: With some sound systems, it will be necessary to install the supplied 1/4" adapter on the end of the Audio Cord in order to make the connection to the audio output jack.

4.Turn the sound system on.

5.Turn the Transmitter on. The ON/OFF Switch is located on the underside of the Transmitter base.

The red LED will light confirming that the Transmitter is receiving power. If the LED does not light, make certain that all connections have been properly made.

6.Turn the Headphones ON. (This same control adjusts the volume on the right earphone).

The red LED will light confirming that the batteries are providing power to the Headphones.

7.Adjust the headband so that it fits comfortably.

8.Adjust the left and right volume controls on the Headphones. (In the event of insufficient volume, check the volume control on the sound system).

DOESN’T SOUND RIGHT TO ME

If you experience static or distortion in the Headphones:

1.Check all connections.

2.If applicable, make certain the sound system is tuned properly.

3.Make certain you are within approximately 100 feet of the Transmitter.
