is there a device (doesnt require power supply from mains) which allows me to connect the red/white audio inputs from my ps2 to my headphones?

There is an adapter, but dont expect there to be much volume form it. It only carries a low voltage signal that is meant to be amplified.

Go to walmart, get a pair of $5 extermal powered speakers with a headphone jack and go from there.

This is if you live in america. Im sory. It did slip my mind that you may not be. Any stereo powered speakers with an adapter will work :D

isnt there something else apart from normal stereo speakers like a mini small size amplifier with red/white input ports and a headphone jack?

You can use adapters to connect headphones and it will probably be "loud enough". The problem is that you'd need more than 1 adapter because all the RCA to minijack adapters I've seen are either male-female or female-male. So you'd need gender changers too.

Sure, you could pick up a <A HREF="http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog_name=CTLG&category_name=CTLG_007_002_001_002&product_id=274-883" target="_new">Stereo RCA female (2-jacks) to Stereo 1/8" headphone (male) adapter</A> to do the cable conversion, then a <A HREF="http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog_name=CTLG&category_name=CTLG_007_002_001_003&product_id=274-1555" target="_new">Coupler</A> to change the headphone plug (male) to a headphone jack (female).

Oh, and if you want all gold, you'd just get a <A HREF="http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog_name=CTLG&category_name=CTLG_007_002_001_003&product_id=274-886" target="_new">Different Coupler</A>

so i can connect my ps2 red/white (audio) cables to this adapter then use a coupler. great idea!

does the coupler make the adapter AUDIO OUT or AUDIO IN?

but how is the sound level because theres no amplifier involved?

The PS/2 isn't SUPPOSED to have audio IN, it's SUPPOSED to have audio OUT, to a TV! The adapter changes it from RCA audio out to 1/8" stereo minijack out. The coupler allows you to connect your headphones by making it a female connector.

Oh, BTW, sound level should be similar to many sound cards at full volume on the "line out" jack. The reason is that most soundcards these days don't have an amplified headphone jack, just a line level jack. Headphones are line level too.
