How can I connect headphones to LG tv with no headphone jack


frewmore

Question

Hi, I joined the forum looking for some advice on how to connect wired headphones to an LG 55UK7550PLA television  which does not have a headphone jack.  And if it’s not possible to connect wired headphones I would consider using Wireless or Bluetooth headphones but to be honest I don’t know the difference between them and which would be the most suitable so open to any suggestions. thanks,Ron

@frewmore I beleive the 55UK7550PLA has Optical (TosLink) sound output, so if you look at the first 4 in the "best of" list below (as they have bypass - so you can have the sound ALSO to go out to your amp or Sound Bar). The reason for the bypass, is that most TV "sound out" settings can ONLY have either TV Speakers, OR HDMI (ARC to/from AVR/AMP), OR Optical out (that is then the INPUT to the adaptor, and ITS output piggy-backs out to the OTHER required sound devices you might want, i.e. sound-bar or AVR/AMP). The good ones will allow you to use either Bluetooth or wired output to your headphones.  Try Amazon in your country, to see if any of those are available

      hi all,
      for a couple of years now, I've enjoyed AirPlay between my mid-2012 MacBook Pro and my LG Smart TV. But last week, I had to do a Migriation Asst./Time Machine re-install of the system drive on my MacBook Pro/Mojave. Result is that I can no longer get a connection with my LG TV. Two things:
      When attempting to AirPlay connect, I now get a Mac window asking for a PIN code. Then , the LG goes black and gives me a 4-digit AirPlay code, I enter it in to the Mac, but it reports, "could not connect to LG TV" etc. 2. I've put an AirPlay icon in the menu bar, but when I click on it, I see a greyed-out "AirPlay:" that constantly switches back and forth between "AirPlay: Looking for TV..." and "AirPlay: Off"
      All help/thoughts appreciated!

      We have two LG TV's that stopped connecting to our PLEX media server after the last update. TImes out saying "Checking connection speed to Raspberrypi" which the PLEX is on
      Upgraded the Mesh Routers before trying anything, still only the PLEX app doesn't work
      Our other TCL TV and Roku and TIVO still work with Plex, so this is only the LG TV's that can't connect anymore.
      Another annoying error after the last update is that any Streaming app (Amazon, Netflix, and DIsney) now fall out of the app and go back to HDMI port 1 if we pause for 30 seconds.  Which we have always done for a Bathroom break or getting drinks.

      I output the sound from my LG 75UJ657A to external speakers through a bluetooth connection, but it doesn't automatically connect to the bluetooth device when I turn the TV on. Whenever I cycle the TV off and, then, back on, the TV asks if I want to connect to the bluetooth device, and I have to select "yes" with the remote. My smart phone automatically connects to all the bluetooth devices I've set it up with. When I start my car, my phone connects automatically to the car stereo/phone system, and it does the same with other bluetooth speakers I have. This is what I want my TV to do.
      How do I get my LG 75UJ657A to automatically connect to the bluetooth device I've set up with it?

      Hi
      I have a LG 65NANO80VPA which works perfectly overall.
       
      The only issue is that when I connect bluetooth headphones or earphones, the audio is initially perfect but after a minute or two it starts distorting. If I disconnect and reconnect the bluetooth device, the sound goes back to being perfect, but only briefly before developing scratchy distortion as before. I have found this to be the case with Sony XM5 headphones as well as Samsung Galaxy Buds Live.
      I have tried various audio settings on the head/earphones and on the TV and nothing fixes it.
      When I connect a UE Boom 3 bluetooth speaker to the TV, it works flawlessly with no distortion.
      I thought it might be my TV unit that has a problem. I went to a local retailer who has a LG ultra short throw laser projector on display (Cinebeam HU715Q). I took my own head and earphones with and connected to the projector and had exactly the same audio distortion issue, identical to my TV.
       
      This leads me to think it is some compatibility issue between the LG WebOS software and bluetooth earphones/headphones?
      I have searched the web and couldn't find any complaints about the same problem.
      A friend has an older LG TV with an old WebOS version and that TV doesn't give the same bluetooth distortion with my audio devices.
      This issue is a dealbreaker for me and I am looking at getting a different brand of TV as a result, unless someone can come up with a solution?
      Thanks
