PN50B550 - Headphone jack installed (or not?)

by tveye59 / November 22, 2009 1:34 PM PST

The technical info claims this model PN50B550 (50" plasma tv) comes has a headphone jack installed - but when viewing the owner's manual online, there is not picture of it ANYWHERE on the unit.
Can a Samsung employee verify whether there is one installed or not (and if so, WHERE on the unit is it).

If not - what model of 46"-50" Samsung Plasma tv's DO have a headphone jack installed.

I MUST have a headphone jack (for late night viewing without keeping the rest of the family awake!)

thanks

tveye59,

I'll be happy to clarify. The manual is correct; there is not a headphone jack on this unit.

I noted that it was mistakenly posted as having a headphone jack on the website. I apologize for the inconvenience, and will have that situation fixed.

FYI = No Headphone jacks on ANY 50" Samsung Models !!

ok - thanks for the honest reply.
FYI - it appears that NONE of the Samsung 50" Plasma models have headphone jacks installed (contrary to the Technical Specs. info posted).
Please make a note of this as well (its not just this 1 model!)

Are there ANY newer Samsung Plasma's that DO come with a headphone jack? (or any other manufacturer's that you're aware of?) I really need one!

tveye59,

There are no headphone jacks on the plasmas, unfortunately.

There are RCA output jacks. The only solution I can think of is to connect the television to a small receiver (some portable radios even have RCA inputs) that has a headphone jack that you can use.

I know it's not an ideal solution in this situation, but that's the best I can offer as a headphone solution.

I have the PN50B860 and it has 3.5 mm headphone jack. I use it (with a 15 feet extension cord_ so i don't hear the buzzing.
