I checked their site and the manufacturer's, seems as if a standard headphone jack isn't present. You could do a RCA to headphone jack adapter, like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000AJ692/

That's fine, or should be on both accords. I don't see a problem with that extension from RCA Y to headphones. Just seems a pain to do though.

@xarous: Thanks xarous. I'm seeing this is a pretty common problem. Don't know why they don't put in a headphone jack. I'm going to get a shorter one since I have 50' extender and then I can tuck it behind the TV when I don't need it.

Unrelated, since the question has been answered, but I just want to mention the Roku 3 (released in the past month or so) has a nifty headphone jack in the remote so you can listen to streaming content through headphones easily. Been making my girlfriend very happy, now it's much easier for me to watch in bed without disturbing her!

I did exactly what @minkeygirl7: did. If you notice some extra audio interference you may need to unplug the cable when not using, mine acted like an antenna for interference. I had mine hooked from TV to PC so YMMV.

@caffeine_dude: I was wondering this exact thing last night? If I left it plugged in would I be able to hear my TV. I guess it'll be trial and error to see. I won't need it all the time, just when blasting stereos.

@minkeygirl7: Mine I determined was a ground loop. explained here: http://www.siber-sonic.com/electronics/GLoopwhatis.html
We also heard a police radio when the policeman was outside one time, writing someone a ticket.
http://www.monoprice.com/products/search.asp?keyword=toslink from my DVR to Stereo to my TV resolved my issues. It is so beautiful to turn up the volume on a stereo and not hear hiss. I spent so much time and I bought something that said it would work. I gave up for a year and saw the cables when buying new cables from Monoprice and ... just WOW!!! for $5.... WOW

@xarous: I just talked to Toshiba Customer Support. What a nightmare. I hate when customer service people keep saying "Oh I see why you are concerned" after every sentence I speak.

There is no way to turn off the internal speakers for this TV. I don't get it There is a way to hook up to the internet but no headphone jacks?

Wish I could take this thing back. I'll look for one for my bedroom that has headphone jacks. Live and learn

Thanks for the help.

@minkeygirl7: Sorry you had such a nightmare. Make sure when you find the next unit to go somewhere that physically has it in stock, such as a Best Buy, and kindly ask them to hook up a set of headphones, if the tv says that it is capable. Only then will you truly know. (Even if you don't end up purchasing it there, still physically check. Bring your own headphones if you want.)

UPDATE: I heard some thumping bass today from my neighbors bratty kid so I put on my headphones plugged into the adapter. I was adjusting the volume and discovered that I can turn the volume down and nothing comes out of the TV but I still have volume in the headphones. I can't adjust the volume there but this was an unexpected surprise. So problem solved, besides killing the kid. J/K
