Need info on wireless headphones for TV

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
As a Xmas gift, my Dad would like wireless headphones to use while watching TV. I don't really know what would be a good product or way to go about it. The audio for the TV is normally listened to through a Sony home theater setup. One of those DVD player/surround sound deals. What output would the wireless headphones tap into in order to get sound? What would be the easiest way to go about this in both setup, usage, and product choice? Thanks.

As long as you find some that support 3.5mm, you should be okay. Don't get USB.
And make sure your TV has a 3.5mm headphone jack thumb.gif

I'm pretty sure there is a 3.5mm headphone output on the front of the surround box. I didn't know you could use that with wireless. I'm guessing there is a transmitter that plugs into the 3.5mm jack and cord going to power?

Yeah the transmitter plugs in the 3.5mm jack for sound and has a separate power cord.

Thanks. I found some Sony headphones that have a charging base with them. Reviews were decent.
