Solution to sound coming from both t.v. and headphones,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 2 x RCA Male, 1 x 3.5mm Stereo Female, Y-Cable 6-Inch (Electronics)
I wanted to play games quietly but my tv didn't have a headphone jack. So I bought these to get around that problem and they work very well. One problem though is that it exchanges my left earphone for my right, but I just switch the colors around (red in white and white in red).
Some helpful advice:
1. Your tv has to have red and white "audio out" ports (usually in the back)
2. Like me, you may need a headphone extension cord. My headphones are a little short so my face is 2 feet away from the tv screen.
3. Many of you may run into a little problem where sound is coming from both the headphones and the tv which kinda defeats the purpose of the headphones. My solution was to turn the tv sound all the way down while the headphones were still plugged in. For some reason the sound for the tv speakers go down but not the headphones.
Hope that helps.
