Don’t you just hate it when you’re trying to have a private TV watching time but you can’t decide on a proper volume level with waking up the entire household? In other words, if you turn the TV’s volume loud enough, then people might start complaining. Otherwise, if the volume level is too low, then you can’t hear anything.
With the advent of modern technology, you can now connect a wireless headset to a smart television set with the help of a Bluetooth transmitter. But before you head to the store to buy a transmitter, there are a few things to cover before you spend money on the device.
Consider a Few Factors Before Purchasing
Albeit there are many different Bluetooth transmitters on the market, you shouldn’t just spend your hard-earned cash on any unit you see sitting on a store shelf. Perhaps the most important factor you need to think about is the compatibility of the Bluetooth devices. Bear in mind that most Bluetooth-enabled devices are backward compatible. In other words, advanced technologies still work with older gadgets. However, it might not be the same story the other way around. For example, if you have a wireless headset that supports Bluetooth 4.0, then search for a transmitter that can take the same frequencies. Otherwise, you might encounter problems with the connection.
Pairing the Bluetooth Transmitter to the Headset
Before we proceed with the connection, ensure that all Bluetooth devices in the immediate area are turned off. In doing so, there won’t be any hindrances when you’re trying to pair the devices together. Also, ensure that both the headset and the transmitter is turned off before we attempt anything. Now, turn the headset on first and place it into pairing mode. If you don’t know how to do this with your headset, it’s best to consult its instruction manual. Next, it’s time to place the transmitter into pairing mode. Place both devices together as close as possible. There should be a notification like a flashing LED light or a sound that’ll chime when both the Bluetooth transmitter and the headset are successfully paired.
Bonus Connecting the Bluetooth Transmitter to an External Speaker or Audio Source
Now that you know how to pair the Bluetooth transmitter and your wireless headset together, a similar process should still apply when you’re trying to connect your TV with an external speaker or audio source through wireless means. However, you might want to unpair the Bluetooth headset first with the transmitter before you connect it to other devices to ensure the initial pairing will become as flawless as possible. It’s just a matter of turning on the pairing feature for both devices for the connection to work.
