Re: bluetooth

Connecting isn't the right word; it's commonly called "pairing".

- can you connect your headphones to another bluetooth audio source?
- can you connect other bluetooth headphones to this device?
- what sound bar exactly (model?)
- what headphones exactly?
- what happens when you try?

Read the product pages on the NB4550

Can you point out where this soundbar transmits audio over bluetooth. I think you may be thinking of some other product.

I'm going with that's how it works.

That is, all the bluetooth sound bars I see are bluetooth audio receivers. To connect from said bar over bluetooth the bar would have to be a Transmitter which none I've seen can do.

If the soundbar has a headphone jack, there are bluetooth audio transmitters that can plug in there.
