The Sony Bravia W-Series flat-screen television is equipped with 10 different connection ports for hooking up different types of audio-video equipment and accessories, including headphones for private listening. The Bravia TV models feature a set of composite AV jacks and a headphone jack along the edge of the cabinet. Plugging in a set of headphones will automatically shut off the Bravia's two built-in speakers. An adaptor is needed to use the Bravia's 1/4-inch headphone jack with headphones that come with a 3.5mm mini-plug.

Things you need

  1. 1

    Turn off the Bravia W-series television with the remote control or by pressing the "Power" button on the front control panel.

  2. 2

    Plug in the adaptor to the headphone jack on the side panel of the Bravia. Use the green jack at the bottom, next to the icon of a set of headphones.

  3. 3

    Insert the 3.5mm miniplug on a set of headphones into the jack on the back of the adaptor. The Bravia's built-in speakers shut off while headphones are connected.

Tips and warnings

  • The adaptor is not needed when using headphones with a 1/4-inch audio plug.
  • Don't unplug the headphones while the TV is in use. This protects the speakers from a sudden power surge, especially if the TV is also connected to a home theatre system with full-size speakers.
