Bluetooth headphones use with TV

  Fruit Bat /\0/\ 11:48 14 Oct 2018

Noty having any luck in the Digital Home forum so repeating it here in the Tech forum.

I looking at changing my old TV currently use some wireless headphones coupled to an adaptor in the scart socket.

The TV I'm thinking of buying does not have scart sockets (as per most TVs nowadays) or even a headphone socket.

Anyone have any experience using Bluetooth head phones with a modern TV i'm interested in the following:

Can I pair and use more than one headset at the same time?

Can the TV be use at a low volume and the headphones at a higher volume at the same time?

Or would I be better buying some form of adaptor to use in the TOS socket to achieve the above?

"Can the TV be use at a low volume and the headphones at a higher volume at the same time?" Yes but will depend on the TV.

"Can I pair and use more than one headset at the same time?" as far as I know you cannot (but could be wrong) although there seems to be apps that allow multiple bluetooth speakers to be connected to a smart phone.

having posted the same question a while back I did get information of a pack that you can buy you plug your earphones on to that and connect the other part to the TV. Although I bought the part my brother decided he did not want it done that way so whether it actually works or not I don't know.

i think it was secret squirrel or red dave13 that gave me all the advice. Will look and see if I can find the post.

Govan1x thanks

Head phone socket cuts out sound from TV speakers and I need both, TV on low and headphones on high.

at the moment the old TV has a scart out with scart adaptor to a RCA headphone socket lead which a wireless headphone base plugs into. Had two of these but one base failed now I can tune both sets to the same base.

Looking at a new bigger TV but the LGs and Sansungs I fancy dont have scart or headphone jacks even. All have TOS links some have bluetooth so was hoping to reduce the cables by using bluetooth head phones (two sets if possible) but need to know if can have TV sound and blutooth sound at different levels.

Tried pairing a Bluetooth speaker with the LG TV I had in mind to purchase, couldn't even find it.

Did manager to get it to pair with another Bluetooth speaker but no sound even though audio menu correctly set to output to Bluetooth.

So it looks like i won't be purchasing Bluetooth headphones for use with a TV. optical output adaptors must be the route to go.

Apart from headphones, I would look at the catch up features . I have a Samsung and (older) LP and the Samsung has more TV catch up- my LP only has BBC. Also the wi fi is better on the Samsung. TV sound is poor on the LG so I have a Denon Speaker box, like a sound bar. That is connected via Optical, but it has a speaker socket. Not sure if soundbars would have a connection that would suit headphones that you want but maybe worth having a look . I have my LG internal speakers set to off.
