Is this a wireless headset system, with red/white jacks on the transmitter/base?

Don't want to switch to a call-thanks

I am not asking for anything else.

You are seeing an automated ad by the site for a call or remote session. It is not sent by me. This is optional and may be ignored if you wish.

You have paid the full agreed upon fees (5 deposit + balance/total) noted on the payment page when posting your question.

What connections do you see on the transmitter/base unit for the sony? There would be red/white rca jacks and/or a headphone style plug?

headphone style-the only other things on the pack is the input plug and a button for changing channels

Thanks,

The short answer is that you can't use headphones with the tv directly. This is actually the case for all modern tvs. It can be done, but some additional equipment is required.

The reason for this is that all modern tv's are digital, and because of copyrights and digital rights management/copy protection, so tv's cannot have any analog outputs, which is what a headphone jack would be.

The way around this is to use the Digital Audio Out port on the back of the tv. This is a square type port with a little flap/door over it and a red light inside. You connect a fiber optical cable to it. You'll need to purchase a digital to analog converter: http://amzn.to/1VhPiQx . This will convert the optical connection to an analog stereo connection (red/white rca ports). To that, you can then connect the 3.5mm minijack/headphone cable for the transmitter unit.

Best regards,

Nathan

Do they make digital headseats

There are some digital headset systems that will accept the optical connection directly, so you don't need the adapter then,

if you want to go that route, here is one I'd suggest: http://amzn.to/2pofa53
