Mike from Chula Vista, CA

Mike just bought a Sony Bluetooth over the ear headphone set. Can he use it with his television? Leo says he can get a Bluetooth transmitter, and if his TV has a headphone jack, he can just plug it in and then pair that to his headphones. He should look for A2DP because that has the best quality audio. Analog could cause a bit of delay, though. That's why keeping it digital is important. If there is delay, Mike can possibly adjust it in his TVs audio settings.
