Last week I wrote about the Motorokr S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headphones. These headphones worked with the Palm Pre. I was so impressed with these headphones that I started looking for Bluetooth stereo headphones that I could hook-up to my HI-DEF TV. Currently, they do not exist! Headphones by Sennheiser, Sony and JVC all work off of Infrared or RF, but not Bluetooth. Surprising!
I then started to think … all you need is a Bluetooth Transmitter with an stereo Audio-Input. The complication?? Bluetooth usually needs to pair by accepting a passcode. But, neither the headphones nor the transmitter have a keyboard. Problem?? Not if you plan it right.
Both the Motorokr S305 and the Sony Two-Way Bluetooth Adapter (model #HWS-BTA2W) use the same passcode of 0000. Just put them both into pairing-mode and they will find each other. The sound is great and the range is over 20 feet!
NOTE — If your TV does not have a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack, you will need an adapter cable connecting stereo RCA connectors to a 3.5mm stereo jack. You can find this cable at your local Radio Shack and online.
