I have the 26" model of this TV. The only difference between this 32" and the 26" is size....everything else is the same.
The answer to your question is yes and no. There is technically no Headphone Jack. However, there is an audio out jack that you can connect headphones to. The difference between a headphone jack and this audio out jack is that with headphone jacks you can control the volume of the headphones with the TV volume control.
With this audio out jack, the volume cannot be controlled with the TV volume. The headphone volume is stuck at a certain volume. The problem with this (with my headphones anyway) is that the volume is too low.
The audio out jack is really not meant for headphones....it is really meant for external receivers and audio systems which have their own Volume controls. There are however products out there that can boost the volume of headphones (maybe connecters with volume controls or something). There are also headphones out there that have volume controls built right into the phones or the wires themselves....though, I think it would be better to just buy one of those amplifier things for headphones.
Yes, there is a mini-plug stereo outlet that would work for using headphones, or -- as I have it connected -- to a small amplifier to send the signal through the amplifier and speakers to enhance sound if I am watching a movie and want surround-sound. This works really well. I hope my answer helps you. Mark
There is a 3.5 mm. stereo audio jack on the rear. You may select from "TV Speaker" or "External Speaker". In the TV Speaker mode, both the TV speakers and the external speaker are on. When in the External Speaker mode, the TV speaker is turned off and the volume and mute buttons do not operate. Using headphones would require a small amp or some sort of volume control to be practical.
