Can I still buy a Roku that supports private listening via remotes I already have?

I'm in a weird position - I have 2 Roku 3's, a Roku 2, and a Stick. Having been notified that the Roku 2 will no longer get updates I want to replace it. But it's in the garage on a small 720p TV that we use only for watching on the treadmill, and private listening through the remote is a requirement. Using the app is a non-starter for this particular one.

Based on what I'm finding on Roku's site, the only models that come with that feature now are the Ultra and the Stick+LE, which are $99 and $59 respectively.

I clearly don't need, or want to pay for, 4k on this TV.

The remotes I have currently with headphone jacks are two RC03 and an RC35, and I could move one of them to the garage to work with a new model that maybe didn't come with a headphone remote.

I wouldn't mind spending $40 on a Premier or an Express+, but I can't verify whether any I can buy now would work with the remotes I have.

Am I basically stuck buying a new Roku for in the house and moving one of my old headphone capable models to the garage?

You can pair the old remote to say premiere, but private listening will not work. The Roku Stick+LE is new and comes with headphone remote, but since you already the headphone remote go with last years model of Stick + for $49, or even cheaper renewed one. The headphone remotes work on the older stick+'s even though they didn't come with such remote.
