So How Do I Connect These Wireless Headphones?
Before we can answer the question how to wireless setup headphones for TV, we need to know what type of system your wireless headphones are using. There are a few dominant technologies, and the one we will focus on in this article is Bluetooth technology which is something most people are familiar with. As for the brands available, there are many brands and models of wireless headphones, but they mostly all use the same format.
These headphones will come with rechargeable batteries that will power the headphones without cumbersome wires. These batteries will either be nickel-cadmium or lithium depending on the manufacturer. Now I know you may be tempted to start using the wireless headphones right away but don’t. They need to be fully charged, or the batteries will lose their ability to hold a charge, and that is where the problems can start. After the batteries have fully charged, you should connect the transmitter to your television.There will be wires for both the left and right speaker channels so pick the main outputs on the back of your television. If your television has many outputs then select the ones that are marked “center or “C”. Once the transmitter has been connected you will need to “power on” the wireless headphones.
Do not put the headphones right on your head just in case the volume was set on “high”, if you do, then you could do significant damage to your hearing. When you have the wireless headphones set to the right volume you can then enjoy watching your favorite television shows without having to worry about disturbing other people in your home.
