{The Media playing earphones vs. The classic TV headphones}

My question was if they were the same compatacble pieces.

My computer headphones won't burn out, if they were using on a TV, right?
(Would my computer headphones get damaged, if they are using as the traditional TV headphones on my traditional older TV?)

The electronic supplies stores could not answer me that.

I checked the webs a bit. Apparently they were not the same things. There were differences between the newer digital and analogue outputs. The headsets might not fry, but wouldn't work without a transfering box.

Thank you for all you who bothered comming in.

First of all, maybe no one KNEW and that's why you got no replies. Or maybe they didn't understand the question, because honestly I had to read it 3 times and I'm still not sure I understand it.

Headphones are headphones are headphones. A "transfering box"? wth is a transfering box?

To answer your question as I understand it: No, your "computer" headphones will not "burn out" if you use them on a TV.
You could take the very first pair of headphones ever invented and use them on the latest piece of hi tech equipment you can find and they won't "burn out".
There is technically no such thing as "Computer Headphones".
Headphones are really just tiny speakers.
Speakers are speakers are speakers.
Without getting into ohms, anyway...

I am having this old crystal ball TV. When I have more budgets, I am planning to buy a set of earphones to keep my room quiet. But apparently the wireless ones are too expensive for me. Hence I am planning to buy the traditional earphones (headphones) that are plugging directly into an analogue TV.

Then I examined my TV, and it had only the RCA outputs. So I was wondering if the later-era computer headphones would work on this electron. Therefore, I researched on this subject, when I was in the mood and having times to do so. The articles on the Internet suggested the later-era computer headphones were not the same as the analogue headphones as the digital singles were not compactable to the traditional singles. And to transferring the two alien singles into one language, there was an outputs convertor needed. Of course, the convertor had a technical name, which I bothered not bringing it up.

I, sometimes, posted in the ambiguous terms, because the people hyped the prices of the garbages when the needs risen. It was like what I said, “Ape planet”. You had no ideas the darkness of men’s hearts.

Thank you for replying my thread nevertheless.

You might be able to use as an example a "Ugreen Premium 3.5mm Female to 2RCA Male Stereo Audio Adapter Cable Gold Plated for Smartphones, MP3, Tablets, Home Theater, 5ft/1.5m" http://www.amazon.com/Premium-Adapte...rca+male+cable

A $7.00 cable, assuming:
1. Your RCA outputs on your TV are audio outputs (RCA outputs can also output video, which you don't want)

2. You headphone has the proper size "jack", (There have been are three sizes used over the years)
Your TV manual may show the hookup. If you don't have the manual, search on Google.com for your TV model.
