How Does the OTE-1000 Wireless TV Headphones Work?

The OTE-1000 Wireless TV Headphones work by sending a signal from your TV to the headphones. There is no delay in the sound – so you will never experience watching someone on TV say something before you hear it. The product is compatible with nearly every TV on the market and can be installed with analog or digital outputs. It also works with most streaming services or devices, so you don’t have to worry about missing your favorite show on Netflix.

When you’re wearing the headphones, you can move about freely, since they are wireless. And all the controls are on the headphones themselves – you can turn them off, change the volume or mute the headphones completely all with the touch of a button on the side of the ear piece.

Using OTE-1000 Wireless TV Headphones

As mentioned, the OTE-1000 Wireless TV Headphones are easy to use and set up. There is nothing to assemble, so you won’t need any professional help to get started. When you receive your package, it’s best to open the box, remove the contents and set them aside. Double check to make sure you have all the contents that are supposed to be included. If, by chance, you do not have all the parts – contact the company immediately to let them know so it can be replaced.

You will need to charge the headphones first. For a full and complete charge, it will generally take around two hours. To get started, determine the best and most convenient place to put your docking/charging station. You’ll want to make sure it’s easy to get to, not in the way and near an electrical outlet.

The instructions in the user’s guide are fairly easy to follow and understand. The manual has a step-by-step guide with pictures for both analog and digital outputs and a thorough explanation of how to use the headphones.
