My IR headphones stopped working (not a surprise for a 2018 odyssey); only static on them. I bought a new IR headphone (on Amazon) and nothing but static also. Reading through posts I took the advice of someone to buy a bluetooth transmitter and bluetooth headphones. I can say that was great advice. The sound quality is much better and the headphones much more comfortable than the stock ones. This seems to be a great upgrade for the kids and will hopefully keep them out of the conversations in the front seat, and allow me to listen to the radio more freely.

From Amazon:
Bluetooth Transmitter Receiver, Aisidra V5.0 Bluetooth Adapter for Audio, 2-in-1 Bluetooth AUX Adapter for TV/Car/PC/MP3 Player/Home Theater/Switch, Low Latency, Pairs 2 Devices Simultaneously

iJoy Matte Rechargeable Wireless Bluetooth Foldable Over Ear Headphones with Mic, EDM (the kids can each have their own color)

But did you ever figure out what happened to the IR signal?

The only thing I thought of is that the RES is broadcasting on a different channel than the headphones pick up. Just a guess as my RES is aftermarket and has settings for different IR broadcast channels.

No sure the problem. The stock headphones wouldn't work. The ones from Amazon had 2 frequency setting and neither worked.
But the Bluetooth is definitely better.
