Most portable electronic devices, such as CD players and MP3 products, have a built-in headphone audio jack, allowing you to directly hook up your earbuds to the player. However, larger electronics, such as DVD players and televisions, typically do not have such an option. Still, there is a way to hook up a pair of headphones to the "audio out" ports built into the equipment.

Look at the back of the device into which you want to hook the headphones. Make sure it has the red, white and yellow RCA connection ports.
Plug the red and white male ends of the splitter cable into the red and white "audio out" ports on your electronic device.
Connect the headphones into the 3.5mm female end of the splitter cable. This takes the stereo output and brings it into the headphones.
Power on the device and play the audio you want to hear. You now can hear the audio play through the headphones.
