Question

What headset would be compatible with my old TV?

Alright I'm really not very tech savvy especially when it comes to the TV I have some gaming consoles one being the PS4 Pro but I have an old flat screen it's from around 2008 it's an Insignia I want to buy a good headset that will disable the tv speakers and only allow for audio to play through my headphone speakers instead.

I've taken a few photo's of the ports in the back of my TV could you suggest a good headset that would be compatible with it? cost isn't really an issue.

I tried plugging in my Razer kraken pro headset but no sound came through them.
If I'm not being clear enough in short I want something that will stop the sound from coming out of the TV speakers and instead only have the audio play through the headphones/phone jack.

Answer
The jack to use is the HEADPHONE jack.

The rest look like inputs to the TV or optical.

So the reason I see the Kraken didn't work is the Kraken appears to have a jack with the mic on it. For this model you need old style STEREO headphones which there are hundreds on Amazon and in stores. Just go with one without the mic.
