Unable to Use Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro With ROKU

Hi Folks,

I'm unable to use my new Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro Headphones with Roku TV. They are not Bluetooth headphones; what can I do? The TV is not recognizing the headphones via the 3.5 mm jack. Can you suggest a wayaround? I read this article while purchasing the headphones but the same did not mention anything about the compatibility with Smart TVs.

See if anything else works in the audio plug. There's no interaction between headphones and the TV via an analog jack, so there's no issue working or not. We need to make sure the jack is working in the first place. 

I don't have that TV. Are you certain you are connecting to a headphone jack? Sometimes the 3.5mm jack is an A/V input, not a headphone jack.
