How do I connect Wireless Headphones to a TV if there is no Headphone Jack in front?

If the TV has an audio output that is where the transmitter for the wireless headphones will be connected. If your TV doesn’t have an audio output then your other options will be to use either a stereo VCR, Cable Box, or Satellite box. Depending on what is connected to the TV, one of the listed components will have an audio output. If you use cable or satellite and have a box, they have an audio output. Basically just connect the headphones to the output on the back of the box and you’ll be good. If you don’t have either, but happen to have a VCR connected to it, then just connect the transmitter to the audio output on the VCR and when you want to use the headphones just turn on the VCR, sound will come through it and you’ll be good there too.

Hope this helps.

  3. My tv has only a optical audio output. What can I do?

    • I haven’t been on my blog in a while, I’m sorry for the late reply, but I hope that you did find an answer to this. If not, here’s how to do it.

      I’ve been asked this a lot, and there’s only one answer that allows you to use the Television digital output. There’s an adapter you can get at ( that converts the digital outputs to analog output. They are very hard to come by, but this device allows you to connect newer Digital devices to older/legacy equipment that doesn’t have digital inputs.

      The process is simple for connection as well – you connect the digital cable from your TV’s output to the adapter, then connect an analog (white and red) cable from the output side of the adapter and connect that to the AUX input on your stereo device. That’s it.

      I hope you found this helpful!
