If you are using a phone, iPad, iPod, or computer, start with all of the volumes all the way up.
Next listen with the headphones and turn down the loudest device to match the volume of the other two.
You want all channels transmitting approximately the same volume so that when users switch channels on the headphones, they don’t have to adjust the volume knob.
If you are using a DJ mixer, they go a lot louder, so, you want to be listening in the headphones while you turn it up. Have your own headphones at about 50% volume when you do that. That way, nobody will be complaining about their headphones being too soft when they turn them up higher.
The only thing to “set-up” is to plug in the transmitters to both electricity and your audio devices.
-There are three transmitters to power, so you may want to have a power strip handy. -I supply the wires that go from your audio device to the transmitters. -All you have to do is to plug in your device and turn it on.
Oh yeah, you have to make sure you turn up the volume on your device and press play.
I would suggest that it will take about 5 minutes to get get everything plugged in if you don’t count opening up the boxes.
It will take you longer to decide what music to play than it will to plug in the three transmitters.
And once you plug them in, there is nothing more to do. They are ready to go. This 3 minute video gives you an overview for plugging into professional devices such as a dj would use. https://youtu.be/l3ymUKY7jKM
Leave it on the “low” setting unless you have a football field sized area you are trying to fill.
The “low” versus “high” refers to signal strength and not to music volume.
It will not affect the music volume. Also, when it is on “high” it can cause a clicking static noise if a headphone gets too near the transmitter and all of the headphones on that channel can hear it when it happens.
Only use the high setting if you are in a huge area and/or some of the guests are losing reception in their headphones.
The “off” position turns the unit off, but there is no reason to do that due to how I have it set up. Simply unplug the power strip, and leave the transmitter switch on “low”.
