Watching my TV quietly.

by nwiirre / November 24, 2006 3:19 AM PST

I'm not that great when it comes to all the different types of connectors for audio, video, etc... So I need a little help. I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD Rear Projection TV. It has no headphone jack and I want to be able to watch it as loud as I want. I work weird hours so I end up watching TV, DVDs, and playing games late at night. I don't have a stereo system or home theater system and I was wondering if anyone knows what I would need besides one of the systems mentioned above. I don't care if it is wireless or not. And if you can help I need to be able to do all of the above while still being quiet.

Darned inconvenient of those manufacturers

not to make it easy. My Samsung doesn't have an easy, labeled phones jack either.

So here's not an answer, but a question to our posters with more tech info. I do have rear panel jacks labeled as video/audio monitor output jacks. Would plugging into the RCA jacked ones called monitor out feed the headset?

Well, I do my sound through an A/V receiver anyway. So as an alternative, not using the TV set/monitor for that built in sound, the receiver certainly has headphone jacks.

As to specific headphones, I have a few, but haven't bought any in many years.
