Connecting to headphone output on TV

Currently I have my 1029s connected to a Samsung TV through the rca audio output jacks.
It sounds excellent but the tv volume control does not affect the volume.
Is it possible to connect to the headphone out jack using Hosa Stereo Mini to Dual 3-Pin XLR Male Breakout Cable or Hosa Pro Stereo Breakout Cable, 1/8" TRS to Dual 1/4" TS or similar.?
I think the tv volume control does affect headphone level on this 10 year old TV. (LN-S4051D or 2D)
Thanks for any replies.
