Solved! How do you hook up headphones to a Samsung uhdt tv 7 series that does not have audio output?

Oct 17, 2018
My husband is hard of hearing and on our old Samsung there was and audio output he could hook up the headphones. We have tried using a splitter and connected to the AV & Component separately . Any suggestions would be appreciated. The model code is UN50NU7100FXZC.
NO:AB03/UNU7100. We already have Bose speakers hooked up to the optical audio output.


Which AV component device do you have?

-If your AV devices has digital audio (optical), then you could connect the TV to the AV component via optical cable and connect the headphones to the AV device.

-That smart TV might come with Bluetooth (check before spending on Bluetooth headphones), so you could get Bluetooth headphones and paired them to the TV. The audio output should be changed by pressing the Select button. To connect to a Bluetooth device (speaker), press the up directional button, and then select Speaker List and the Bluetooth headphone should be listed.

-You could also get a Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) device. Just plug a optical cable from the TV to the DAC and plug the headphones to the headphone jack on the DAC.
DAC device available @ Amazon

Thank you for your suggestion. We went to an electronic store and the fellow told us to check our Pvr box for a optical output. We found it and hooked up th speakers to it and hooked up the headphones via the Digital to Analog converter. It all works great now.
