Tv sets also vary in sophistication and thus their ability to accommodate wireless headphones will vary. These differences can make it unnecessarily challenging for the less technologically serve amongst us to connect wireless headphones with their tvs. Let’s look at how wireless headphones work with tvs shall we?
Before attempting to use wireless headphones with your tv, it is wise to understand the type of tv set you are dealing with. Does your tv set employ analogue or digital audio output mechanisms? Doe they support Bluetooth devices? Equipping yourself with such information will inform what accessories need to accompany your headphones, if any. For analogue output mechanisms you have the option of utilizing a base for your headphones. For digital mechanisms looking to use with analogue headphones, you have the option of adding a digital to analogue (DAC) to your shopping list. For devices that do not support the use of Bluetooth devices, a Bluetooth transmitter is a definite plus for you if you are looking to utilize Bluetooth headphones.
The next thing you have to consider is the type of wireless headphones you have. Are they dedicated or Bluetooth headphones? Dedicated headphones unlike Bluetooth headphones can only be used with one device at a time while the latter allows you to connect to multiple devices. They come with a base that is connected to the tv using an audio jack. The base then transmits to the head phones via radio frequency.
The beauty with dedicated wireless headphones is that you can use them over a range of up to 300ft. Bluetooth wireless headphones give you a much shorter range of only 30ft. To connect this with your tv, turn on the head phones, go to the settings of your television, select Bluetooth devices, select your headphones, pair the two and enjoy. Your headphones have to be in pairing mode.
