Roy, easy way to do that is go to wally mart, K-mart sears etc. and get a set of "rca wireless headphones" they are inexpensive and the headphones have a volume control built into them so you can have it as loud as YOU want, and the wife can set the volume on the tv where she wants, bought a set for my father-in-law and he loves them, (he`s very hard -of -hearing) you can even walk out of the room with them on and still hear the program, buy them for yourself as a christmas present, enjoy, BMW Rider

    Roy, as long as you have an audio output jack on the back of your set, (almost every tv has it unless it`s veeery old ) it will work perfectly, It comes as 2 pieces, the little transmitter sits on top of the tv and has a rca cable that hooks to the audio out on the back of your tv, that sends out the audio to the headphones kinda like a remote control sends a signal to the tv,My grandfather use to say " no question is a dumb question if you truly don`t know the answer" He was a smart guy :) If you need more info ask away, BMW Rider

My hustand is half deaf and can not hear the TV..and has to blast it to hear, So we tried many wireless headphones.. but the problem is they either got all static or the volume was very limited. We never tried the RCA one yet..is there a model # on it so we can try to find it and get the right one?

Trying to get new headphones to cancel speakers on tv


What kind of headphones and TV are you trying to make work as an combined pair? It sounds to me as though you have your head phones plugged into the speaker location on the TV which could be a small hole that shows a pic of speakers. Look on the TV for an 'mic' or 'pic of headphones' holes. If there is an plug in hole with either it states mic or shows a pic of headphones plug the headphones into that hole instead of where you have them plugged into now.

Another suggestion is to use MDI cords in which you may already be using aka white, red, yellow colored plugs. If those plugs are assembled in the slots incorrect that also could be the reason as to why the headphones turn down when you turn the volume to the TV down; which also would influence the TV volume its self to also disengage to go either louder or quieter. MDI cords should be plugged in the following pattern to be categorized as the following with each color following the next color; yellow, white, red. Now if you are using MDI cords presently do you have them plugged in front or back of the TV?

If the TV has hole ports in both front and back for MDI cords then reverse your plug ins. Example: If you have them plugged in the front instead switch all three to the back of the TV or vise versa.

Also another thing; since you are wanting to use headphones for your TV speakers instead of the TV speakers themselves usually plugging headphones in are controlled by TV volume buttons; however I am assuming that you are trying to state that when you plug headphones into the TV you still hear the volume in your ears and anyone in the TV room is also still hearing the TV even though headphones are plugged in, am I right?

With you wanting to cancel the speakers on the TV out only attempted to use TV volume for speakers and without it working means you have the MDI cord plugged into the audio which would cause the TV to power the volume for the headphones anyways. May I ask this; since I am a bit confused, alright are you wishing for the headphones to be able to be loud enough so the TV only powers them for volume when you use the TV?

I know that headphones being plugged into an TV should only keep their volume within the ear buds. Therefore I have never heard of headphones being able to be loud enough to power out room sound. Instead they power internal volume which would be within your ears. Headphones were meant to keep noise and volume from surrounding a room to block room noise out and to keep the sound for your/ an own persons only listening capability. So because of this I am confused as to how ear phones would have the ability to sound the room with audio.

I can understand that if what you are trying to say is that the speakers on the TV still output volume even with head phones plugged in which would be an issue, since head phones are to capture the volume and noise from the unit in which plays aloud- to actually silence it instead- for the individual whom requires or presumes to have themselves to be the only listener.

If I hook up a set of headphones to the slot on the side of the TV the sound goes off and you can only hear sound through the headphones, no one else in the room can hear the TV. Is there a way to hook...


The headphone jack on the TV has switch built-in to kill the TV speakers when headphne jack is used, you need to use powered PC speakers with headphone jack and connect this PC speakers to the Audio line out of the TV set (RED and WHITE RCA audio line out). Basically the powered PC speakers are being used a headphone driver. Or you can get one of those wirless headphone system instead.

When I plug in my headphones the sound is not re-routed through the headphones. It is still audible in the room.


It does not look like you have the switchable headphone connector that you can use a pair of headphones and will cut the audio to the tv speaker out.If you are using the audio out connectors in the rear of the tv all you can do is lower the tv volume when you are using the headphones(fixed audio)

Sound quality/ connection to tv/ audio problems


The sound quality from an HDtv could very well be better than from a lesser-quality TV. The sound from the headphones can only be as good as the signal that feeds it.

RS120 Can still hear TV when headphones are on


Ok.. first.. the simple thing is to go into your television menu and turn the television speaker OFF.
Then exit the menu and turn the volume up.. try your headphones now.

Next.. check the back of the TV for a FIXED AUDIO OUT.. plut your headphones into these outputs.. if you have these.. you can simply turn the set down.. and use the volume control on the headphones.

Hooking up wireless headphones into the tv


u have to split the signal by having both the tv and the headphones getting the input,as you're probably only have the audio cables going to the headphones.You need an audio splitting cable (it has 4 malle connections) so you can put 2 in the tv and 2 in the headphone base.

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.
