If it doesn't "just work" when you plug it in, I'd recommend picking up an inexpensive extension cable to reach the back. Here is one that would work:

    Most monitors that have a headphone jack have to be plugged into the back themselves like your headphones would. If you look on the back of the monitor by the video/power inputs, you may see a small headphone looking jack there that is the input from the pc. Again note the audio connection from PC to Monitor is separate from the video and power connections.

    This photo illustrates an example of the audio-in port of a monitor with built-in speakers. Note that you need a cable (that probably came with the monitor) that has 1/8" (headphone jack-like) connectors on both ends to connect it.

    Yes, exactly.

    The monitor would plug into the audio-out (green) plug by the way, same as where your speakers or headphones would plug in the back of the pc tower.

Your HP Pavilion F1903 monitor does not have built-in speakers. Your desktop computer probably did not come with speakers. You will have to plug computer speakers into the audio-out jack (green) on the back of your computer to play through external speakers.

There are also a number of USB speaker systems available that use USB both for power and for the audio signal.

Alternatively, there is probably an earphone jack on the front panel of your computer. If you plug headphones into that you should be able to listen on your headphones.

Can't get headphones to work on this unit

Aux-in jack is used to play another device such as an Ipod or other sources through your Jensen player, using it as some sort of an amplifier. Look for another port on your Jensen player that says "audio out" or "Spkr" (means speakers) to plug in her headphones. If you can't find any of these ports then you might have purchased a n actual boom box, which does not have the capability to play through headphones, sorry about that.

No sound from the rear jack from my LG e2350. I am using the vga connection as my computer is old.

Plug your headphones into the computer audio out jack (green for speakers on the back or a front port labelled headphones). The VGA cable doesn't carry audio and you do not have an audio in port for bringing that signal to the monitor.

The headphone jack is useful if you are using a video source like a Blu-ray player with an HDMI cable. Then you can listen to the audio.

I wish that I better news for you. The manual for the LG E2350 is available from LG: . Click on the Support tab and look on the right side of the page.

I have a st69 and every time I record, the vocals while recording sound very chorus like in the headphones, but they sound fine when I listen to the play back, please help.

Check the mixer settings to be sure you are not sending multiple mixes or effects to the monitor (headphone) output. The output used for recording does not necessarily have the identical sound sources and mixing path as the headphone, so make sure the headphone is monitoring the same signal as the recording output.

Is there any way to use headphones on the HP 2159m computer monitor? possibly external computer speakers? I have a desktop computer connected to the monitor by a HDMI cable.

There is no audio output on that monitor. So decoding the HDMI into analog is out. However, the simple fix is to plug your speakers or headphones into the green 3.5mm headphone jack on the back of your computer, and change the default audio device in windows. You can use both audio cards at once for different tasks, such as having someones voice come over your HDMI cable on the monitor, while listening to music on the audio out of your computer.

If you need any help setting the audio card, let me know.

Hi, I hope you've solved the problem.  But if the first solution does not work for you maybe this one will.

I looked at the specs for your monitor. LINE IN is for plugging in a device that makes sound, so this is not the right hole (called a jack) for the headphones plug.  Look on the back of your computer for a hole that is outlined with light green.  You wrote that you removed " the audio wire that connects the monitor to the CPU", this would be the place to plug in the headphones.

Can't hear MIC through HEADPHONES in real time

i hope that you have the audio drivers installed and working and of course tested with your way to do this is to play any song in media player and monitor it on your headphone...
the default settings for most DAW( Digital Audio Workstations) including ACID will be to mute the audio output when recording. This primarily is done to avoid feedbacks during recording. Anyways coming to the point. Since people would like to hear whats been recorded there is a scheme called as direct monitoring. I believe in ACID it is called as "Input Monitoring" and it basically is a small speaker shaped icon that appears next to the Record Arm Button once it is armed. Click on Input Monitoring and make sure its turned ON. Now you can listen while u record.
Hope this me if u need further help

Can not connect

Power up headset. Press and hold the + and - Volume buttons until the red and blue lights flash . Your phone should now pair with the headset. For passcode I used 1234 and this worked.
