Let’s jump right in!
Signal transmission type is essential
There are a couple of different ways that wireless headphones for TV are going to transmit sound these days, but it really all comes down to Bluetooth technology and proprietary signal transmissions – and both of them have their own pros and cons.
The overwhelming majority of the best earbuds out there for watching TV wirelessly are going to use Bluetooth technology, and many of them aren’t going to be specifically made for watching TV in the first place. Bluetooth 4.0 is as advanced a transmission technology as has ever been created, and now it offers more bandwidth, higher fidelity, and a much better listening experience.
On top of that, Bluetooth technology allows you to use your new headphones with any of your Bluetooth devices – including your phone at the gym or your tablet during your commute. This allows you to make the most of your wireless headphones purchase.
Proprietary technology for transmission, on the other hand, can also be a way to go if you want your headphones to be the same brand as your receiver, for example. Sony (for example) makes wonderful receivers, televisions, and wireless headphones designed to work with one another effortlessly, and that may be a direction that you’ll want to go – but only if you’re always going to have Sony technology. If not, Bluetooth is probably more up your alley.
