Looks like LG TV only support combinations of Internal Speakers + Wired Headphones and Internal Speakers + Optical output.

You may try a soundbar with such functionality.

Not a simple solution, but not too hard:

I bought an inexpensive optical-analog converter #with headphone jack#! (TOSLInk-analog)

Then, an inexpensive Bluetooth transmitter, to connect to the headphone jack, or 'RCA' connectors.

 

The TOSLink optical output does not seem to be controlled from the TV volume control, which is probably ideal for you, since you can control volume with the headphone output control from the converter, and the volume control on your headphones

 

I think it would cost about $30, and is then useful for any TV, or device that needs a Bluetooth transmitter-

 

I found this one on Amazon.de ...

Not sure how reliable the suppliers are... I ordered a similar one a while ago, and it never arrived, but, here's a staring point, and supports 2 headphones at once.

 

Here's a "single box solution"

hope this is some kind of help... the LG TV that I have sucks for Bluetooth, or audio output, generally... sigh...

I AM USING A BLUETOOTH TRANSMITTER FOR LISTENING TO THE AUDIO ON MY BT HEADPHONES, WHEN OTHERS ARE NOT TO BE DISTURBED. THIS I DID AFTER EXPLORING ALL AVENUES OF USING BT HEADPHONES ON LG TV DIRECTLY.

I INTERESTED IN USING THE OPTICAL AUDIO OUTPUT ALSO,  STILL NOT FOUND AN ECONOMIC ALTERNATIVE FOR THE SAME

Was it necessary to write all that in caps? It was hard to read.

      Hi,
      i have the LG OLED55B6V. I think that's the right model name?
      anyhow, I have a pair of Bose qc35 wireless Bluetooth Headphones, which work fine with my LG TV. However, when I pair my Samsung true wireless Bluetooth Headphones, the sound is infinitesimally low, no matter how far I turn the volume up on both devices.
      Why?

      There’s a trend here. After Samsung and Vizio, LG is also adding support for Apple’s ecosystem to its TV operating system webOS. Specifically, people who buy an LG  TV in 2019 should be able to share content to their TVs using AirPlay 2. TVs will also be compatible with HomeKit, letting you create custom scenarios and control your TV using Siri.
      “Many of our customers may also happen to have Apple  devices,” Senior Director of Home Entertainment Product Marketing Tim Alessi said during the company’s CES press conference. “LG has been working with Apple as well to create a streamlined user experience. So I’m very pleased to announce today that we’re adding Apple AirPlay to our 2019 TVs.”

      If you have an iPhone, iPad or Mac, you can send video content to your TV using the AirPlay icon in your favorite video app. You can also mirror your display in case you want to show some non-video content.
      2019 LG TVs also support AirPlay audio, which means that you can send music and podcasts on your TV, pair your TV with other AirPlay 2-compatible speakers.
      New LG TVs also support HomeKit. It means that you can add your TV to the Home app on your iOS device and Mac. After that, you can control basic TV features from the Home app. You can also assign Siri keywords so that you can manage your TV using Siri on your iOS device or HomePod.
      HomeKit support lets you create custom actions. For instance, you can say “Hey Siri, turn on the TV” and have Siri turn on the TV and dim your Philips Hue lights.
      Unlike Samsung, LG didn’t announce an iTunes app. So you can’t rent or buy movies and TV shows straight from your TV. Buying something from your phone and then using AirPlay is still a bit clunky.
      LG also said that 2019 TVs come with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant support. But this is less surprising as you can find hundreds of devices that support those voice assistants.
      Finally, the company is adding a home dashboard to control a wide variety of home devices from your TV. Details are still thin on this feature. It’s unclear whether LG will roll out some of all of these software features to old TVs.
      Watching all TV manufacturers add AirPlay and HomeKit support one by one reminds me of the year TV manufacturers all announced native Netflix apps for their TV. It’s clear that Apple is following in Netflix’s footsteps and opening up. Apple has been working on a subscription-based streaming service for months. And the company wants to support as many devices as possible.

      Hi,
      I intend to buy LG TV 43UK6300Y.
      So question: if this TV require the Bluetooth headphones which must support LG sound sync (wireless) function.
      If yes, could you send the list of acceptable Bluetooth headphones.
      Thank you, 
      Evgeny
