Today’s smart TVs have numerous capabilities and features that allow access to a multitude of content on networks but also connect to the different equipment we have at home as sound systems, players, consoles, computers, etc..
The main advantage of this type of adapters is their ease of use. Although there are all kinds of models, most of them are very easy to install and use. In general it is enough to plug them to the electric current, to a USB socket or directly to an internal battery, connect them to the TV through a 3.5 mm jack cable, analog RCA or even digital optical, and that’s it.
The main drawback is the dreaded Bluetooth connection delay, which can reduce the user experience in some cases. The problem with these devices is that they work independently from the TV, so they cannot adapt the sound output to the image emission as is the case with integrated devices or PC adapters.

Another option is to connect your headphones to the remote control of a set-top streaming device. If you’ve been thinking about getting a set-top box, now is the perfect time to do it. Devices like the Roku Ultra, or consoles like Nvidia Shield have remote controls with a built-in headphone jack. The Amazon Fire TV game controller also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, but not your standard remote control.
Video streaming devices, such as the Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV, also stream audio via Bluetooth. After putting your Bluetooth headphones into pairing mode, simply follow the Bluetooth setup instructions for your set-top box. Don’t forget that this method will only allow you to listen to content streaming from the device you’ve paired, and will not work as a blanket solution. Again, you will want to make sure that none of your devices have a latency issue.
