Just curious, why would you want them both on? But if you have to have that you can usually pick up the audio out from the back of most TV's. You can add an amplifier and you will have headphones with speaker output. There are usually two outputs, one is controlled by the volume on the tv the other is constant video out, which is what you want, then you adjust the volume of the headgear via the amplifier.

How are you connecting the headphones? If you are connecting to the 1/8" earphone jack that is how the jack works. When a plug is inserted into the jack the internal speakers are physically disconnected. The only way to have the TV's internal speakers to stay active while a jack is inserted into the earphone jack is to solder a jumper wire inside the TV so the speakers stay connected.

You can't. A least not without re-wiring the inside of the TV. Most devices with speakers are designed to shut off the speakers when headphones are connected to the headphone jack..

    If you are referring to bluetooth headphones, there should be a setting in the TV menu to keep speakers active while using bluetooth.

The speaker cutout feature whenever the headphone jack is connected is a hard-wired feature of the headphone connector, and cannot normally be bypassed without further electronic circuitry and the associated surgery to install a custom modification in the TV. In order to keep the TV speakers on while using the sound elsewhere, you will have to take the audio output from the IR Audio port, if there is one.

When plugging in a wireless headphone in the audio output the tv's speakers speakers do not shut down


In some TVs, the internal speakers have to be disabled by going to the initial set up procedure and making that choice. In others, there is no such provision.

HW701 wireless headphones


Yup. If the headphones are driven by the TV, then turning down the TV turns down the headphones. Check to see if the TV has an audio output setting where you can select either the TV speakers or the headphone jack. What brand and model TV is it?

I GET GOOD RECEPETION BUT WHEN I CLICK THE TV TO STOP SOUND IT ALSO STOPS SOUND TO MY EAR PHONES WHAT IS WRONG


From the initial details of your problem it is unclear what equipment you have connected and what you are trying to listen to with your headphones.

Please describe exactly what piece of equipment your headphones are plugged in to. If it is a TV or a stereo system, please provide the model number for it.

If you are using wireless headphones plugged directly into your TV, please provide the model number of the headphone and for the TV and whether you are plugged into the EARPHONE jack, or the LEFT and RIGHT AUDIO OUT jacks.

If you are trying to listen to your TV audio through a home stereo amplifier, then please describe what type of cables you are using to connect the TV or set top box to the stereo (HDMI, RCA stereo, etc).

When you say that you 'CLICK TV TO STOP SOUND', do you mean that you are pushing the MUTE button on your TV's remote control?

Normally, pushing the TV's MUTE button will turn off the sound for both the TV's speakers and for the headphone output.

It is usually possible to shut off just the TV's speakers and leave the headphone volume active but in most cases this must be done through the TV's AUDIO OPTIONS MENU. For most TV's there is usually an option there to TURN TV SPEAKERS OFF.

Please comment back here to this page and provide as many additional details about your current setup and how you normally use your heaphones and I will respond as soon as I see it with any additional assistance necessary.

Thank you and take care.

Joe.

Audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on headphones


It sounds as if you are plugging the base into a standard headphone jack located on the Television set.

RCA Headphone jacks (incl mini) automatically stop the sound output to the main speakers on almost every set I have seen.. or home stereo.. etc etc

In other words you can take a standard RCA jack.. with nothing connected to it.. plug it in while the music or sound is coming out the main speaker.. and it will cut off the output to those speakers..

If you set has audio outputs on the back.. preferably Fixed Audio Out .. you will need to connect your base unit to those.. turn your set volume to 0 and adjust the headset volume using the control on the right ear-cup.

If you have variable audio out.. you will need to go into your TV sets setup menu.. turn off the speaker.. and turn up the set until you achieve a signal and decent volume through the headset.

If you are missing these connections.. your current “work around” is your only solution.

Best of luck

Using headphones with Logitech X-230 speakers


I really don't know, because some of the newer gadgets come with fixed volume control due to law suits, ect. Try to see if you can bring you TV menu up and see what the sound setting is.

Audio output jacks


If I remember this tv correctly, check under the audio setting in the menu, most tv's including this on have variable output for the audio o/p. meaning the the o/p vol. is adjusted as the tv speaker vol. changes. some tv's will put out a fixed audio o/p to the rca jacks, but will only do this when the speakers are shut off in the menu (not muted, but off). I have run into this problem many times & have yet to find a better solution to getting a steady sound sound out of the o/p jacks.
