I tried to connect headphones to the Aux In port on the Samsung HW-E450 soundbar. I changed the soundbar sound setting to AUX and no sound is coming through the headphones.

Any idea how to get headphones to work? The AUX In port is the only one that will work with a headhphone jack. I saw nothing in the instructions.

I am using a Samsung TV and have set it to external speakers so all sound from the TV comes through the sound bar.

Thanks!

The AUX port is an input, not an output. Headphones need to be connected to an output on a source device. Does your TV have a headphone jack?

That's what I thought of. I would bypass the soundbar and use the TV speakers in this instance. Then, just plug the headphones into the TV.

Thanks, yes I finally found a jack on the back of the TV. It wasn't obvious for some reason. I was hoping the soundbar had one just to make it easier to plug/unplug.

Even though I changed my TV setting from external spearkers (soundbar) to use the TV speakers, you can't control the volume that is going to the headphones. Sounds crazy, but true. Not a fan of the Samsung TV right now.

Anyway, thanks again. smile.gif
