Ok, neither my VCR, nor my video game consoles seem to have a standard headphone jack. But I want to be able to play games and/or watch movies without bothering my wife. Is there a way to plug my headphones into the standard AV connections? Do I just need to pick up a simple adapter or do I need something more complex? I want the sound to ONLY play through the headphones, obviously. Any help would be appreciated.

The AV connector has left & right sound channels at a sufficient level to drive a power amplifier, so you should be fine with a simple adapter.

Get these $40 Altec Lansing speakers and you’ll get not one but TWO headphone jacks:


Thanks Gordon. I could use some good speakers for my consoles anyway!
