At most part, you likely want to relax at night time after a stressful day. You may be streaming videos, listening to your favorite artists or even go through your much-awaited episodes on Netflix. If you’re not living alone, you may disturb other house members.

Worry no more because you can definitely connect your televisions to wireless headphones.

Pairing these two devices isn’t difficult as you might think. In this article, we provide you with options on how to make your ‘netflix and chill’ possible even if it’s past twelve.

Here are some options that you might consider when connecting your wireless headphone to your TV:

  • Dedicated wireless headphones
  • Bluetooth transmitters
  • Media streamers

Dedicated Wireless Headphones

Most TVs don’t have built-in Bluetooth. If you have the same issue and thinking that it’s not possible, you’re wrong.

Dedicated wireless headphones are the easiest way to solve your problem. You can purchase these headphones online or any electronic retailers near you.

When you buy dedicated wireless headphones, it comes with a base station. This usually serves as a ‘modem’ which allows you to connect your TV and wireless headphones. Unlike Bluetooth, this type of wireless headphones has a wider operating range at approximately 300 feet. Amazing isn’t it? This is because dedicated wireless headphones use radio frequencies.

Bluetooth Transmitters

If you already have a pair of Bluetooth headphones, there’s no need for you to buy dedicated wireless headphones. But you still need to purchase Bluetooth transmitters if your TV isn’t Bluetooth-enabled. The device will serve as a ‘link’ between your wireless headphone and TV. Pairing is possible using Bluetooth connectivity. You can usually plug a transmitter into your TV’s USB port. A little downside for Bluetooth transmitters is that they have a shorter operating range of approximately 30 feet.

Media Streamers

Media streaming is an option considered as the most hassle-free ways to connect your wireless phones to your TVs.

Some of these media streamers are the following:

  • Android TV – if your Android TV supports Bluetooth headphones, just set the wireless headphones into a pairing mode. On your TV, go to Settings > Bluetooth and look for your headphone device.
  • Apple TV – fortunately, Apple TVs always support Bluetooth headphones. Just set up the wireless headphones into pairing mode and proceed to Settings > Remotes and Devices > Bluetooth.
  • Amazon Fire TV – to connect, directly go to Settings > Controllers and Bluetooth Devices > Other Bluetooth Devices. Your wireless headphone will appear under Discovered devices.
