IR headphone is powered by two supplied "AAA" batteries. The headphones
features and adjustable headband and on-the-ear padded earcups.

IR sensor to communicate with your compatible Alpine dual source wireless transmitter

a power button, an A/B source switch and a power LED indicator.
A/B Source Switch: The headphone's A/B source switch allows
you to switch between channels on your compatible dual source transmitter so you
can listen to either connected audio source.
Extended Bass Drivers (E.B.D): The drivers in the headphone are
designed to produce extended bass frequencies for a wider frequency response.

source, the power to the headphone will automatically turn itself off.

flat for easier storage.

only! Most states prohibit the use of headphones by the driver while operating
