I am looking for compatible wireless headphones for my Sony Bravia XBR55X810C TV. I did not realize about bluetooth profiles supported by the TV (Version 4.1 HID/HOGP/3DSP/SPP) until recently when i purchased wireless headphones/earphones and tried to pair them.
I have a Bose SoundSport wireless earphone which i tried pairing and failed. Before that I got another wireless headphone that did not pair. That is when I got curious and found about bluetooth profile compatibility.
So my question is: What are the wireless earphones/headphones that are compatible with the TV?
Very few of the wireless earphones/headphones packaing that I have seen contain infomation on the bluetooth profile(s) suported.
Thanks in advance for the help. It will help me from saving trips purchasing headphones and returning them.

I have a set of Turtle Beach headphones for gaming. There is a dongle that plugs into a USB port for power. I then plug red and white RCA connectors into the audio out on the TV. And those are connected to the dongle.
The dongle then sends the signal to the headphones. They are made for gaming but they sound good and work well.
Your TV is compatible with Bluetooth Version 4.1
So you need to look for headphones that are as such.
The Soundsport are 4.2

I was wondering what headphones you were able to use for this TV.
I purchased a pair of Sony WH1000XM2 wireless headphones and they will not pair to this Sony XBR-55810C TV. Very frustrated that a sony product won't connect to a sony product. Specially since I purchased both brand new in 2017.

Technically it should not make any difference if they are the same brand. What matters the most is that they are compatible versions of Blue Tooth.
However, both the TV and Headphones are the same version 4.1
I recently purchased a new TV that is Blue Tooth compatible. I could not get Blue Tooth to connect either.
Turned out for me the TV came with Blue Tooth Turned off. I had to enable Blue Tooth on the TV first.
I would assume you already did that but it is the only thing I can think of.
Try connecting the headphones to a SmartPhone. Just to make sure the headphones are working.
