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.
Compatible Bluetooth TV Transmitters
There are several units available to add Bluetooth to a non-Bluetooth TV.
There are many other units available, read here for our picks of best Bluetooth Adapters for TV.
Below I am using the iClever F56 as an example but most all units will be similar to set up.
How to Add Bluetooth to a TV and Use Headphones
- Set the unit to Transmit (TX)
- Plug in to the 3.5mm audio jack
- Plug in the micro USB power cable
- Press the Pair button on the unit
- Press the Pair button on the Bluetooth headset
After the units are Paired sound will now transmit to the headphones.
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.
