Question

Wirelessly connect tv speakers to Bluetooth headset ?

by Traktrjorj / December 28, 2013 12:36 AM PST

Unless I have my tv up on 80 I cannot hear it while running on my treadmill. Tell me the device I need to plug into my tv speaker system to connect it wirelessly to my Bluetooth headset so I don't blow my speakers out on my tv ?

Clarification Request
Did you solve your problem?

Did you solve your problem? If not, 1) what Bluetooth headset do you have, and 2) what speaker/ headset/audio outs are available on your TV system?

There are many solutions but
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / December 28, 2013 3:21 AM PST

All tend to force us to check the TV for what outputs it has to see if we can use this or that solution. There is no single solution as that solution would be very costly and still would not work on a few TVs.

...if the treadmill is that loud you need earplugs. Forget saving T.V. speakers, save you hearing.

Bluetooth Device

"IF" your TV has a phone jack (or even stereo output jacks, usually RCA-type), you could try the SONY HWS-BTA2W Bluetooth Transmitter and QUATTRO Neckloop Receiver (or other compatible bluetooth headphones). This video on YouTube will give you an overview of how it is done. If you don't need sound out of the speakers at the same time, you should be able to connect the SONY bluetooth transmitter directly to the TV's phone jack.

A BETTER SOLUTION

I recommend instead using a long wire from your TV headphone output, secure the wire around the treadmill , then use wired earbuds (in ear models, equipped with comply foam ear tips, won't fall out). The reason is that all bluetooth will exhibit an annoying speech delay between the TV and headphone receiver, but no such delay will occur with a wired setup. I do this for watching my TV at night without annoying my wife.

All you need is a Bluetooth transmitter.

All you need is a Bluetooth transmitter. They run from about $10 to about $50, depending on features. For your purposes, I would stick to the low end.
