The first scan is the troubleshooting page!

There's nothing terribly illuminating in that second scan either.

Looks like Pioneer is keeping the specs a big secret then...sorry guys. Thanks Bangraman for giving it a look.

BTW...is impedance even important or applicable to IR wireless phones?

Well, if there is no real sound difference between semi-closed headphones (HP1500) or open headphones (SE-DIR1000C)

Then ohms might make the difference.

The Pioneer supplied headphones should have more ohms than philips, it's amp can power up to 300 ohm headphones as it is.

I tried plugging my headphones into my Sony's DVD player headphone jack to hear Pearl Harbor with Dolby Headphone. Sound is aweful, flat, cause the headphone jack is so cheap. The headphone jack off the portable RCA DVD player sounds much more balanced than this.

DH thrives on quality jacks, or amps, not cheap rip offs.

installation

hey john how did you hook up your dir1000c using the optical input from the DH going through the receiver. I have an onkyo tx-ds898 and it has an optical output. If I plug it there then my sorround speaker still has a sound. Can U tell me where to connect the DIR1000C using optical???

if u put these on your head, you transform yourself into the biggest headphone geek of all time imo, they look incredicly geeky, like you are wearing some sort of antennae on your head (maybe for listening for lifesigns from outer space?). The cups are huge, they are light compared to their size tho

Pop the corn and slap on those phones boys! What a great week for DVD releases too!

Any recent releases that have blown you away more so with the Pioneer headphones on?

The Core, Twin Towers, Eight Days Later, The Ring, Indiana Jones Trilogy etc.

Try listening to music using Prologic II.

Dolby recommends most music listening be done with this feature turned on.

I don't use it for music listening...but The Core & Two Towers were awesome on the phones. I just got the Indy Jones set and 28 Days Later today....so the fun begins....

A few notes:

(1) It was previously stated that this headphone is turned on and off by spreading the headphone. This is not exactly correct -- it is the angle of the left headphone portion (which pivots on two wires) that turns on and off the headphones.

(2) You can replace the 1600 milliamp-hour NiMH batteries with higher range batteries. I used 2100 mA-h NiMH, and now there are 2300mA-h NiMH available.

first impression, with only a few minutes of listening time, there was baseball on you know, WOW!
