How to Add Bluetooth to a TV and Use Headphones
There are times when using headphones to watch TV is needed and a nice option to have.
 
Wireless Bluetooth headphones work best since no one wants to be tied to their TV.
 
The problem is most TV sets do not have Bluetooth built-in.
 
This is an easy problem to fix with a low-cost Bluetooth transmitter.
 
Small Bluetooth transmitters are easy to setup and have the sound transmitted to a headset.

There are several units available to add Bluetooth to a non-Bluetooth TV.
 
The units will plug into a TVs 3.5mm audio jack and convert it to a Bluetooth signal.

Summary
Installing and setting up a Bluetooth adapter to a TV is a very easy task with little technical knowledge needed.
 
If your TV does not have a USB port for power it can be plugged to an electrical outlet.
 
Most Bluetooth units can transmit up to 30 feet depending on the unit be sure to read the specifications if this is an issue.
 
Another problem some have is a lag in the voice which I have found is mostly a problem with the many headsets available.
 
I use the Archer AH07 headset and have had no issues.
 
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
