Connecting headphones

You can connect headphones with a jack plug or operate them using the infrared interface.

To enable optimal use of the infrared interface, use infrared headphones that comply with the IEC 61603-2 standard.

Compatible infrared headphones and information about supported headphones are available at your service center.

When using infrared headphones, it is important not to interrupt the infrared connection between the headphones and the infrared interface. This means that no obstacle should come between the two and that the cover of the infrared interface should not be covered or scratched. Unfavorable lighting conditions such as glare from outside can interfere with reception.
