If I plug wireless headphone transmitter jack into Bose Wave Soundlink, will it work?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Considering Sennheiser RS170 or RS120 wireless headphones.

Bose Wave is connected to TV/Comcast DVR/Sony Blu Ray. I can now switch, using the Bose remote, between wifi music (via MacBook Pro & Apple Time Machine), and the TV/Blu-Ray on Bose remote's AUX button.

If I get the wireless headphones, will it work?

And how far from the Bose box need the transmitter be to avoid interference?

Headphone reviews say transmitter plugged directly into Comcast DVR 'doesn't work'. If transmitter plugged into Bose box which now *does* get sound for both wifi music and TV, will it still work?

Input appreciated.

The wireless headphones you mention are designed to plug into a regular headphone jack, and they can also be connected to a tape output (RCA jacks).

Generally these devices work when placed right on top of or next to regular electronic equipment. The transmitter for my RS 180s right next to my TV screen.

That surprises me. I drive my RS 180s with the line output of a graphic equalizer,which should be comparable to the analog audio output of a cable box.


Input appreciated.

I've had RS 140s, 160s and 180s. I literally wear out the receivers with heavy use which takes 3-5 years. I've moved up instead of doing the cost-effective thing which is replace just the receiver.

The digital units are IME worth the money. Much cleaner sound with far, far less interfering noises. The 160 and 180 sound about the same and have similar range in my usage.
