As the title. I want to adapt the audio out of a television so the audio can be heard when the user is using the headphone socket (for his headphones).

Ideally using the digital output socket but I could utilise a SCART socket if absolutely necessary. And mains powered with DC adapter so it can be strapped to the back of the television.

Thanks in advance

I didn't see a headphone jack on that unit, it calls for an L/R RCA plug to headphone adapter, some headphones don't like the levels coming out of the RCA jacks as they are fixed at one level, then again I didn't see anything remotely looking like a volume control on any of the units.

You're right, though it shows a set of headphones in the images connected to RCAs.

Found this one though

Well that's not bad, good price, but it uses a micro USB connector/cable to run it for power.

I'll have a spare one of those somewhere, the customer just wants something that does what is mentioned above and will pay for fitting.

If his TV set has a USB plug on it then your set, the last one you posted would work fine.

Looks good, I hope the audio is not at a fixed level, he may need a set of headphones with a volume control.
