The audio output on some TVs disables the TV speakers after you connect headphones. However, you can adjust the setting on your TV to hear sound from both, if the source device (cable box, satellite receiver, or Blu-ray Disc™ player) has multiple audio outputs.
Check the Devices
- Make sure the source device has multiple outputs.
- Connect the source device to your TV.
- Use an HDMI® connection for the best image and audio quality.
On the back of the source device, connect one end of the audio cable to the AUDIO OUT jack.
- On the back of the transmitter of the headphones, connect the other end of the audio cable to the AUDIO IN jack
- The input terminal label varies depending on the RF headphone model. For more information, check the device's manual. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
- Wireless headphones generally require a power connection. Refer to the headphones manual to determine if it requires batteries or AC power connection.
- Some headphones require a stereo mini plug connection instead of the common red and white composite connection. If the cable is not supplied, you may purchase it at most electronic retailers.
- Power on the TV and set it to the input used in step 2.
