Bluetooth transmitter for TV

Hello. Is there such a thing as a Bluetooth transmitter that doesn’t plug in to the headphone jack on the TV please? I would like to listen via headphones and without deleting the sound for others which would happen if I plug anything into the headphone jack Thank you Tony

Has your TV got a USB Port?

I know what your thinking, however you just can't plug any Bluetooth device into a TV's USB Port.

They usually have to be proprietary device from the TV's manufacturer.

If your TV has an Optical Out connection try this click here sound will not be muted via a Toslink connection.

Following on has anybody purchased and can recommend a 27"---32" TV with Bluetooth already installed ? I want to be able to listen via my wireless Bluetooth earphones while everybody else can hear unaffected from the TV Thank you Ton

Unfortunately your going to be back to sound just via the headphones.

As most TV's, as soon as you pair a Bluetooth Audio Device will send all sound to that Device and mute the internal TV Speakers.

Hello mrcalif and thank you so much for your reply and expertise. As you will have gathered, I am not at all technically minded so thought that a Bluetooth TV was the answer. Because of my hearing loss our home has been wired up for a 'loop' system for twenty odd years but hoped that a TV with B/tooth and earphones would make like easier. Not to be but now at least I understand why Thank you again for all your help and patience Kind regards Tony
