If you're on the hunt for the best Bluetooth adapters for TV, you've come to the right place! We've searched to find some of our top picks available this year, which you can use to add an extra layer of functionality to your entertainment setup.
But hold the phone...because there are a few things you'll want to understand before we go diving in! Of course, feel free to skip straight to the products if you're a seasoned pro in everything Bluetooth, but if you're not (like many) you'll want to keep reading,
Bluetooth adapters, put simply, allow you to pair wireless headphones or speakers to your TV. You plug the adapter into the TV itself and then pair your device with it.
Some of these Bluetooth adapters double up as receivers, which will allow it to receive a signal from a chosen device. An example of this, would be that you plug your wired headphones into the receiver, connect a tablet with Spotify on it to the receiver via Bluetooth, and then you can listen to your music through your headphones!
When it comes to Bluetooth in general, having a strong signal strength is a plus, but with these adapters, you'll also want to keep an eye out for features such as signal length, battery life or even the ability to connect more than one device at the same time.
At the time of writing, the Avantree Orbit Bluetooth 5.0 Audio is currently on sale at Amazon (US) and features an LCD display and a Class 1 Dual Antenna Long Range!
So with that done and dusted, let's take a look at what's out there!

Best Bluetooth Adapter for TV Affordable: TaoTronics Bluetooth 5.0 Transmitter and Receiver (£28.99 / $29.99)
2 IN 1: An affordable and versatile solution!
This low latency Bluetooth adapter is a relatively affordable choice for most people looking to connect their wireless headsets or speakers to their TV.
It's low latency, has Bluetooth 5.0, and can be paired with two Bluetooth receivers, although low latency does not support its dual-link mode.
And if you were worried about losing sound quality, fear not, as this device has an audio codec that boasts an uncompromising audio experience.
Add that to a 10m range, built-in battery for up to 10 hours of use and its receiver/transmitter function too, and you're getting some serious bang for your buck.
Best Bluetooth Adapter for TV Wireless: TaoTronics Wireless Audio Adapter (£27.90 / $39.99)
WIRELESS: Compact and portable, with excellent battery life
Another way to go from the folks at TaoTronics is this wireless Bluetooth adapter.
As with the previous entry, it boasts Bluetooth 5.0 and low latency and can act as a transmitter and receiver, but the difference is that you have some more flexibility in how you can connect to your TV, be it through a 3.5mm audio jack or digital optical jack.
Asides from that, it has an impressive battery life of 24 hours on a single charge and is one of the better looking Bluetooth adapters we've seen at this price range.
If you're after a bit more flexibility when it comes to connection, but want to stick to a budget, this could be a good way to go.
Best Bluetooth Adapter for TV All-Rounder: Mpow Bluetooth 5.0 Transmitter Receiver
POW! A knockout piece of gear
This Mpow Bluetooth transmitter-receiver is quite similar to the first TaoTronics adapter on our list and even comes in at roughly the same price.
It's small, compact and super portable, packing a built-in battery that can last up to 14 hours of use and has a substantial 10m connection radius.
It also features dual connection, which frees up the potential of watching the same movie with two headsets for example, and of course, acts as both a transmitter and receiver.
For the price, it's a great looking piece of kit too!
Best Bluetooth Adapter for TV Premium: Avantree Orbit Bluetooth 5.0 Audio (£89.99 / $99.99)
PREMIUM: Go all in with this feature-packed model
If you're after a more premium solution for your TV setup, then it could be worth checking out the Avantree Orbit.
Boasting wide compatibility with a number of TV models, this plug and play device is easy to use and features a number of on-board controls thanks to its size and tabletop setup.
It's also equipped with aptX Low Latency technology, long-range connection thanks to its two internal antennae, and compatible with Netflix, Prime, Hulu and other streaming services.
Seemingly straight forward and packed full of easy to use features, and still relatively affordable.
So there you have it, some of our top picks available right now. Be sure to check back in with us soon as we'll be updating our list with the latest and greatest as we find them.
