How to connect Sennheiser wireless headphones to Samsung TV

by ausgirl13 / August 8, 2013 6:39 PM PDT

HELP! I have tried all day long to connect my Samsung TV with my new Sennheiser RSD 180 wireless headphones. I even called in a technician, and he did not have a clue either. I have bought an audio digitial optical cable, a digital to analog converter and connected everything, and still there is no sound on my headphones. I have tested the headphones with my mobile, they are working. I have also exchanged the converter and the digitial cable because I thought it might be faulty. Can someone PLEASE help me.I am really a bit frustrated. Thanks

Given no TV model number.

I think the only fix is to get a TV with an analog headphone jack. Maybe it's just a setup issue but as I can't find which TV it is, my advice is to return it now for one that has a headphone jack.
