Headphones for TV listening

I know they make special tv headphone products for people hard of hearing (like me), but I already have good headphones (new ones to replace the ones lost last week).

Is there a product that will plug in to TV and transmit the audio to a box I can plug my regular headphones in to, but not mute the normal audio coming out of TV (so my wife can still hear it normally)?

Does anybody know of a product that would allow this to work? I've seen some products out there that look promising, but can't find how they connect and if they'll mute the normal audio or not. Audio transmitters were one that looks like it could be the ticket, but I don't know if they mute the normal audio or not.

Suggestions? Ideas?

It does indeed look like what I'm describing. I forgot to mention, though, I'd "prefer" it to be wireless (not absolute requirement, but preferred). Also that website says minimum order of 3. It does give me another search path to try though. Thanks.

My wife is deaf in one ear, and the other is in less than perfect condition. We have a home theatre system with 5.1 sound. She has a pair of Sennheiser wireless headphones which we connect to the pre-amp output for the center channel (where most of the dialog is directed), and the system seems to work pretty well.

I know that it's not what you asked for, but it might work....

Look at headphone amplifiers. There might be a wireless one out there that would work. And it is the least I could do after you gave me that cool magic circle trick.......

LOL...got it from another FB friend of mine from another forum.

I did look up wireless headphone amplifiers. I'm finding some, but they all have their headphones as part of the unit. I didn't want that...however, I'm also seeing that they use a common system that apparently is transmitted at movie theaters and such as well.....that makes it more appealing.

I think you definitely helped me get looking in the right direction.

Try wearing your headphones to the movie and using your cell phone to call 1-800-headphone and then enter up,up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Enter key, then right click then press up and down and you will get 3D sound.
