Question Device to use wired headphones with TV

May 27, 2020
My Hisense TV does not have a headphone jack, so I recently bought the following DAC to use -

However whilst it works, there's a slight hissing and clicking, even when nothing is playing, which is when it's more noticeable. I tried unplugging the optical lead from the TV and just plugging my headphones directly into the DAC and the problem persisted, so it's coming from the DAC itself. I tried a replacement but the problem is still there.

It’s so frustrating because I’m not after wireless Bluetooth headphones just a way to listen using my existing headphones. Should I look for a soundbar with a headphone out port or possibly even a receiver?

any recommendations?
