Yep, that’s what I thought you had. And as i just mentioned above, I’ve never seen that adapter. A 3.5mm AV plug into a 3.5mm stereo audio plug isn’t something an audio tech would have a use for. A headphone jack is a “variable line-out” while the signals from an AV plug are all “line level” which is generally much less than the “variable line level” for headphones. But anyway, you plug the cable in the photo into the camcorder, then you have any number of adapters to connect the RED right audio channel and the WHITE left audio channel to your headphones. The headphones need a 3.5mm stereo mini-plug connected to seperate left and right female RCA’s. I tested this myself and it works as well as it can work.
Please let me know if you’re confused in any way, hope you get this working for you. You might get better volume if you combine both audio channels. But it will still be very low level sound.
