How to Connect Two Bluetooth Headphones to Old LG TV?

The best way to connect two Bluetooth headphones to old LG TV is by using a Bluetooth transmitter: A device that converts the audio signal from one device into a Bluetooth signal. It will then send it to other connected devices through Bluetooth.

Bluetooth transmitters are convenient because you can connect wireless devices to them, even if your TV doesn’t come with a Bluetooth option. To do so:

Step 1: Connect the Bluetooth Transmitter to Your TV

Choose the Right Bluetooth Transmitter

You might think all you have to do is plug in the transmitter to your TV, and that’s it; however, it’s not that simple.

  • You need to pay attention to your TV’s audio output options to connect the compatible transmitter. 
  • Your TV can have one or more types of audio output ports like RCA, optical audio connection, or auxiliary. 
  • You can check the Your TV’s manual to know which type of audio output port it supports, or you can look for the audio output label at the back of your TV. Generally, LG TVs will have an optical audio port. 
  • Luckily, there’re Bluetooth transmitters compatible with all three audio output ports. You might want to purchase them to connect to different audio ports.
  • Lastly, make sure to buy a Bluetooth transmitter that pairs with multiple headphones.

Plug the Bluetooth Transmitter Into Your TV’s Audio Output Port

All you have to do is look at the back of your TV—it’s not typical for an audio connection to be on the bottom, or the side, of a TV.

  • For RCA audio output, connect each cable— usually colored red and white— to its corresponding audio output port.
  • To connect optical audio connection, plug your transmitter into the single port labeled “Optical” at the back of your TV.
  • Connect your transmitter to the auxiliary port; you’ll find an “ Aux Out” label if your TV supports it.

Check That the Bluetooth Transmitter Is Powered On 

You’ll need to connect your Bluetooth transmitter to a power source—unless it’s battery-powered. Most Bluetooth transmitters have light indicators to tell you if it’s turned on or off when plugged into a power source.

Step 2: Activate Your Bluetooth Transmitter Pairing Mode

You want to check the instructions to know the steps for pairing mode; however, it’s easy to activate most Bluetooth transmitters’ pairing mode.

Simply press the power button and keep holding it until red and blue lights alternate with one another.

Step 3: Pair Your Headphones With the Bluetooth Transmitter

To connect two headphones to your transmitter: 

  • You first need to activate the Bluetooth transmitter pairing mode.
  • Then turn on your headphone and wait a few seconds. The transmitter will automatically pair with the headphone. Some transmitters can connect to multiple headphones at once; just turn all the headphones you need on.
  • Other transmitters will require you to turn off the first paired headphone and connect the second headphone separately.
  • Then, turn the first paired device—while keeping the second headphone on—it’ll automatically pair again with the transmitter.

Step 4: Adjust Your LG TV Audio Settings

Before changing the sound settings in your LG TV, try testing if there’s sound in your headphones by turning up the volume, both in the headset and the TV. 

If you can’t hear through the headphones, you’ll need to adjust your TV settings. To do so:

  1. On your LG TV remote, press the “Setting” button.
  2. Multiple icons will appear at the side of your screen, go to the end of the menu and select the “All Settings” icon.
  3. Choose the “Sound” menu.
  4. Choose “Sound Out.”
  5. Choose the sound output you want which corresponds to the audio portal you plugged your transmitter into; For LG TV, select “Optical.”
  6. Lastly, make sure your headphone’s volume is up, and if you can’t still hear a sound, raise your TV’s volume.
