Connecting headphones to TV

First Poster



Maybe a silly question but if you connect the headphones to the headphone jack socket on the TV, is the optical output also disabled along with the TV speakers? That might be an option also. 

Incidentally, I would like to know for my own purposes as well.

Unfortunately I do not use the optical output and have never tried it so cannot answer your question.




Hi I’m having difficulty trying to connect beats to a Samsung tv I’m on the Bluetooth audio devices and it won’t pair up where specifically do I have to put the beats near the tv?

Hi @Michoob.


Best Bluetooth range should be within 10 meters (and no barriers between the devices). Which models of TV and Beats do you have? Any issues with Bluetooth connection on either of them with other devices?
