It takes 12 volts DC. I've not tried plugging it into the car battery 
directly. When I did the sample recording I ran the wall wart off of the 
inverter I have in the Ranger. That, of course, worked just fine.

I've been meaning to contact Sennheiser on the matter before trying it, 
it should work off a car battery. What I'm planning is mounting the two 
receivers in a pelican case with a NIMH battery pac that I could charge 
off the car. Probably just use a set of D cell size NIMH. That would 
give about 8 hours run time I think. The wall wart is rated 600ma, and 
I'll be running two of them for stereo.

There is no headphone out on the receiver. It's designed to send signal 
to a mix board, the output is adjustable. There are two outputs, 
balanced XLR, unbalanced phone plug. It lists in the specs as:
Balanced +18 dBU (-2 dB), 150 Ohm
Unbalanced +12 dBU (-2 dB), 1.6 kOhm

I do have the pdf of the owners manual up on my site:

In case you have lost track of the sample link:
The left channel is the wireless one, the right is cable.

Note that the above is for the Digital 1000, the 500 system that Martyn 
has is not a digital transmission, but analog. There are at least a 
couple different receivers in the 500 system.
