Help for the ahrd of hearing

We just purchased a new NANO85UNA smart TV. It's a beauty BUT. My husband is hard of hearing and needs headphones to watch TV. There's nothing wrong with my hearing so when we watch together, he wears a headset and I listen to the TV speakers. Imagine my shock and horror when I found out that our brand new TV allows only ONE way of listening. EITHER headphones OR internal TV speaker. I can't even attach two sets of headphones so both of us can watch at the same time. (I have a wireless set and a bluetooth set). Anybody know a way around this incredibly stupid engineering so we can watch some shows together?

The best bet I think would be to use an optical to analogue converter, as the optical output will normally stay live with the speakers on as well.

Something like this should work:

Thanks but there are no inputs on this tv that would take any of the cables. It will accept a bluetooth installation only.

If you look on the back of the TV you will find it has an optical audio output.

This will connect to the adapter I have suggested and give you a usable headphone output.

You might need something with some amplification though. In my experience of these converters, the analogue output level isn’t that great.
