Hi everyone! So i'm literally going insane trying to pick out the perfect hdtv for my needs, it's my first time getting a hdtv so i'm not that savvy with the technical jargon. What I need is a nice hdtv for use with my xbox 360 in my room but the one thing that has me stumped is hooking up headphones to it. The tv has to be able to hook up wireless headphones to it so I don't annoy everyone with the sound of me blowing up people. So what tv should I get? What headphones? I was gonna get the Sennheiser-RS120 wireless headphones but that requires a headphone jack or rca outputs which like no tv has so if you have a different recommendation that's cool too. Can anyone help? It would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Among the better-known brands, I know Toshiba still makes some TVs that have headphone jacks. I haven't looked at many TVs this year, so there may be some other brands that make some TVs that have headphone jacks as well.
Many HDTVs still have a stereo RCA or minijack "line output". I have a Toshiba HDTV with its line output connected to a wireless headphone transmitter that works fine.
Be careful of HDTVs that have a "headphone" jack, as some of them disconnect the speakers whenever a cable is plugged in, meaning that you cannot leave the connection to a wireless headphone transmitter plugged in and listen to the speakers.Life is better when you focus on the signals instead of the noise.
There are a ton of "gaming headphones" so look into the details carefully.
And if you want surround sound expect to pay a pretty penny for it. I don't think you can get them for less than a 100.00 usd so shop around carefully.
Also naturally wired are cheaper than wireless so watch the price differences when doing your search. I don't know if there are any that use the 900mhz range anymore but pay attention to frequency too if you have lots of cordless phones in your home on a certain band.Donatello - The Shredder?

Thanks for the replies! Does anyone recommend a specific brand? Which brands have the best tv's I don't wanna get like a generic brand because they might be less reliable.
You can also buy an HDMI switch or splitter with a headphone or optical output for the headphones and forget that requirement when picking your TV. Expect to pay $30-60 for that.
