Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions ;

What type of headphones do you have ?

Are they wireless or standard wired headphones ?

Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.

Wireless have a base/transmitter that plugs into the tv by the way .

In either case you need an audio output and your tv does have a headphones out port where either could be connected , take a look at the link below , that is the back of your tv and you will see that I pointed to that port;

Hi again, i see a small output port but it does not display the headphone sign, bit it says - digital audio out then in brakets (optical)

Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.

Yes you do also have an optical port ,

Did you look at the link i gave you ?

Here it is again ;

yes Jack i looked at it, there is no port as u pointed out, only what i mentioned to you.

Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.

That is odd , got that info from samsung web site and it is supposed to be the back of your tv !

In that case what you would need is something like what you can see at the link below ;

http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Analog-Converter-USB-Headphone/dp/B0038HX3S8

That is a digital to analog audio converter with headphone jack and this would connect in your tv`s optical port with an optical/toslink cable.

That is a US link but i believe you may be able to find it locally at places

like currys perhaps
