Help what headset would be compatible with my old TV?

Alright I'm really not very tech savvy especially when it comes to the TV I have some gaming consoles one being the PS4 Pro but I have an old flat screen it's from around 2008 it's an Insignia I want to buy a good headset that will disable the tv speakers and only allow for audio to play through my headphone speakers instead.


I've taken a few photo's of the ports in the back of my TV could you suggest a good (wired) headset that would be compatible with it? cost isn't really an issue.


I tried plugging in my Razer kraken pro headset but no sound came through them.
If I'm not being clear enough in short I want something that will stop the sound from coming out of the TV speakers and instead only have the audio play through the headphones/phone jack.

Welcome to our community.


Generally speaking, plugging in headphones with connectors like what you've shown will not work if connected to RCA/composite inputs on your TV. You would need a composite female to 3.5mm adapter. With apologies, it does not appear that Best Buy offers this adapter.


I hope this helps. Thank you for writing to us.
