Wireless Headphones for TV Watching

Post by go birds »

Can anyone recommend some wireless headphones i can use while watching tv?

I have some airpods and wireless BEATS, but the problem is my TV doesn't have blue tooth so those aren't an option.

My tv has the red/white hookups and also a USB port so it would need to be something that works via that.

Well as it would turn out, i had a solution already all along.

Apparently, you can use your phone (iphone) to control the roku app on your tv. On the app, there is a "privacy" feature in which you can connect your wireless headphone to the tv via your phone.

Pretty nifty, though it doesn't really solve the issue for live tv, but at least i can watch movies and mlb.tv without disturbing anyone.

When you move into that one bedroom apartment with me and Hoot; you can watch TV as loud as you want.

Also, bring your Roku. And your TV. We're broke AF because we rented a one bedroom apartment that we can't afford.

I can spare a Chromecast and a family account for my YouTube TV if that will gain me access to the apartment for a dozen or so home games per season including the Home Opener. I'll have to decide who to kick off my account since I currently have all of the available spots filled but they've been freeloading off of me long enough anyway.
