Don’t want to disturb your parents or kids while watching the TV? The Bluetooth wireless headphones paired with your TV is the perfect solution. But not all TVs have Bluetooth, and the charade to route cables and connect wires from the TV is too much of a hassle. Thankfully, Bluetooth-based adapters that work as transmitters make this easy.
Bluetooth adapters for using headphones with the TV are simple and nifty devices that give the wireless advantage. Not only can you connect your wireless Bluetooth earphones to the TV, but you can also use it to connect wireless Bluetooth speakers and soundbar at times.
However, picking a Bluetooth transmitter is not an easy job as there are plenty of confusing options out there. Some particularly old TVs still use RCA audio output while newer TVs have moved on to digital audio outputs. Worry not, there are several Bluetooth adapters that let you connect your headphones to watch your favorite show or movie on your TV.
Let’s get started. But first,
1. Mpow BH390A Bluetooth Transmitter
Using the Mpow Bluetooth transmitter is simple and easy. It comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, and all you need to do is plug it into your TV’s headphone jack. At the same time, you can also plug the USB charging cord into the USB port on your TV (if it has one) for continuous power supply.
Regardless of that, it has a decent battery life. It has both the RX mode and the TX mode. The latter also lets you connect to two audio devices, while the former allows you to transform your wired headphones to Bluetooth ones.
The reception of this product has been great, thanks to its versatility.
Apart from letting you wirelessly connect your Bluetooth headphones to your TV, you can also use it in your car or older stereo systems. The lag is minimal and is not noticeable, especially considering its price.
2. Giveet Bluetooth V5.0 Transmitter and Receiver
While the aptX LL mode is a welcome feature, it’s worth to be noted that it needs to be supported on the connected headphones as well. If not, the Bluetooth codec will revert to the basic SBC or AAC codec.
It comes with both RX and TX mode, although you can’t use it simultaneously. Pairing is fuss-free and quick, and the sound transmitted is also decent for the price. Do note that the adapter doesn’t have any audio control, and you will do that from the TV itself.
At 14 hours, battery life is not the best one out there. However, it’s quite a good deal for the price, especially if you can connect it to your TV or a power bank for continuous power supply.
3. Trond Bluetooth V5.0 Transmitter
One of the best things about this Bluetooth receiver is that it remembers the paired devices, thereby saving you from the hassles of unpairing and pairing your headphones every day. Simultaneously, the aptX LL codec ensures that you will get minimal delays on compatible headphones or earphones.
This product is quite popular on Amazon, primarily because of all these reasons. It has attracted more than 3,000 reviews, with users praising it for its connectivity and performance.
However, it’s not without its share of limitations. This Bluetooth adapter is powered by a 160mAh battery, which lasts only about 8 hours. So, if you are a frequent TV watcher, you will have to take the pains of charging it every day.
Thankfully, you can solve this if you have the option to connect to the USB port on your TV.
4. TaoTronics TT-BA07 Transmitter and Receiver
Like many of its counterparts on this list, it comes with both RX and TX mode, meaning you can also connect it to wired headphones to use them as Bluetooth headphones.
The range is decent, and so is the battery life. Again, the latter doesn’t matter much if you can arrange for a continuous power supply.
Pairing this device with other headphones and earphones is simple. You need to hold the transmitter button till it flashes blue and red, and that’s about it.
It has an average rating of 4.3-stars out of the 17,000 user reviews on Amazon and its user base has appreciated this product for its connectivity, sound quality and build. As per Fakespot’s estimates, around 65% of the user reviews are reliable and can be trusted.
5. Aukey aptX Bluetooth 5.0 Transmitter Receiver
Touch-sensitive buttons further accompany the premium build at the top.
Thankfully, this Bluetooth adapter is quite capable. As noted earlier, it supports optical digital audio and AUX input, thereby letting you use it with old and new TVs alike.
Both the range and the sound quality is great, and several reviewers have echoed this as part of their reviews on Amazon.
For now, it has more than a thousand reviews, with users liking it for its minimal lag and excellent range. It supports dual-link audio.
6. TaoTronics Long Range Bluetooth 5.0 Transmitter
At the same time, it packs a decent number of features. For instance, it has touch-sensitive buttons and also comes with options for volume control. Should the need arise, the buttons make it easy to switch between the AUX mode or the optical mode.
More importantly, it supports a dual-link connection meaning you can share the same audio from the TV over two different pairs of headphones. Cool, right?
Hush the Noise
These were some of the Bluetooth adapters that you can for your TV. The good thing about the affordable section of adapter is that you can also use them on other TVs or in your car once in a while, thanks to the small build and form factor.
On the other hand, if you often watch movies and TV shows on TVs using headphones, both the TaoTronics and the Aukey Bluetooth transmitters and receivers make for a good pick. The range is decent, and so is the sound quality.
