Televisions today have several options to reproduce their audio, in addition to their own speakers and sound bars, users can connect a pair of headphones to listen to what is happening on the screen.
The reasons for doing this are several. For example, not to make too much noise to the people who are around and are sleeping or working, it is also a good option for those who have hearing problems and with this accessory they have the chance to adjust the volume to their needs.
For any of these cases, there are a variety of options for connecting headphones to the TV, either wirelessly or with a cable.

How to use headphones on a tv
There are different methods for the variety of devices currently on the market. For smaller screens, those 32 inches or smaller, manufacturers include a headphone port, assuming users will either have the panel in front or set it up as a computer monitor.
In this option, it will be enough to connect the headphones directly to the port and the television will detect the device to play the audio there.
For those who do not want to have a cable in the way, the wireless methods are the following:
This is an alternative that links the headphones to the television by radio frequency using its charging base, which allows you to add more than a couple of devices and not limit the viewing of other people.
Some brands offer headphones of this type with a Bluetooth alternative, since they include an adapter to make the connection that way, although the connection of multiple devices and audio quality will be lost due to the latency of this technology.
It is a very common option because currently hearing aids with this connection method abound on the market and current televisions already allow a link through this method.
To connect them to the TV it will be a similar process as with the cell phone. First you must put the headphones in pairing mode, then go to the audio settings on the screen, search for nearby headphones, locate ours and make the link.
The advantages of this option is that they are products that many already have at home to use on public transport or at work, so no additional expense should be made.
Although the problems will be that many televisions do not allow two bluetooth headphones at the same time and that this technology has latency, which lowers the audio quality.

Methods with additional accessories
Using a third device to watch television is possible, in case you have problems connecting the headphones or the television does not have the necessary technology to make the link.
The first option is video game consoles, which allow you to connect headphones through the controls, via USB or via Bluetooth. Although the limitation will be that the content will have to be played from the same console, that is, open a streaming application there, which will not serve to watch programs from cable operators.
Another alternative is in case of using streaming media players, in some cases these products allow a wireless connection or their controls have headphone ports.
