Then look on amazon for an optical to headphone adapter.
Someone did find an optical headphone unit!
We recently bought the new Samsung Smart TV model UN55D8000YF and are very happy with it. The only problem is that the TV does not have a headphone jack.
My mother who has hearing problems sometimes likes to watch on the new TV - normally with headphones on - to not disturb the rest of the family or the neighbors. (no kidding). When we tried to connect her headphones to the TV we discovered that there is not headphone jack.
We contacted Samsung support and received the answer that indeed, there is no headphone jack, and - no - we cannot connect the headphones over an adapter in one of the USB slots.
I am at a loss here - anyone else encountered this problem and has a suggestion for a solution? Could we use wireless headphones?
