Potentially, you can use the audio output of the TV to feed the headphones. But, that's only IF the TV supports stereo audio output in some form.
You can also use HDMI audio extractors with RCA connections on them to get two channel audio.
Or you can use a ARC HDMI audio extractor to get RCA stereo audio.
Those Sennheisers look pretty good. Problem is, I want to come up with a solution where he can hear the TV while still being part of normal conversation. Wearing headphones would either block or muffle conversation from everyone else in the room. That's why I was thinking of a small, wireless BT speaker that he could keep next to him. He'd be able to hear the TV sounds on it, but the rest of the room would be relatively quiet with the TV at normal volume in the background so everyone could talk and be heard.
