If your TV doesn’t have Bluetooth, or the headphones don’t work: solution

There are devices such as Bluetooth transmitters. You can use them not only with TVs but also with other devices. Their job is to take sound from the TV through the cable (from output 3.5 mm, RCA, or optical) and transmit via Bluetooth to any wireless headphones.

It is a universal solution for almost any TV, even older. Simply plug the cable from the transmitter into the headphone output of your TV, and connect your headset to the transmitter. These adapters usually draw power from a built-in battery. USB cable for power/charging is included. If your TV has a USB port, you can connect the adapter to it.

There are many such transmitters on the market. There are a lot of Chinese, cheap devices. Read more in this article: Bluetooth transmitter for TV (headphones). What is it, how it works, and how to choose?

As it turned out, only the TVs that run on the Android TV system can connect a Bluetooth headset without any problems and output the sound on them. For such popular manufacturers as LG and Samsung in this respect all is very ambiguous. There are certain series and models that feature Bluetooth headphone connectivity. And LG company still can’t let users choose which Bluetooth-devices they want to connect to their TVs. And not to limit them only to branded accessories.

In any case, you can always buy an inexpensive transmitter and output the sound without wires with it. Yes, it is additional expense and inconvenience of another device, but if there is no other way, it is not a bad solution.
