Wireless Headphones for TV and Laptop

by on September 9, 2007

Q: Is it possible to buy a set of wireless headphones that work on both a TV and a laptop? I’m overwhelmed by all the different types but I’m not sure what to buy as a gift for an individual that wants to use it on both.

A: There are a number of Bluetooth wireless headphones available that you can pair with your TV or your laptop. The Creative CB8100 Bluetooth Wireless Headset is a great example of wireless headphones that come with a transmitter which you can plug into your TV’s 3.5mm headphone jack. You can also pair these wireless headphones with your laptop’s built-in Bluetooth (if available), or with other Bluetooth enabled devices. The transmitter can also be plugged into any audio device that has a 3.5mm jack including iPods and other MP3 players, portable CD players, and various PDAs.
