Dolby's new adapter streams TV sound to two Bluetooth headphones

11 Apr 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

The new Dolby Bluetooth Adapter has been designed to "wirelessly stream sound from TVs without Bluetooth to Dolby Dimension or other Bluetooth-enabled headphones".

Dolby has announced a peripheral device that can take an audio signal from a TV's optical audio port and convert it into Bluetooth (aptX) for streaming to Bluetooth-enabled headphones.

- "This adapter gives you a fast and easy way to wirelessly stream sound from TVs without Bluetooth to Dolby Dimension or other Bluetooth-enabled headphones," the company said. "And with dual streaming, two people can connect their wireless headphones to the TV to enjoy a movie together."

The adapter can stream TV sound to two headphones at once. This can be enabled by clicking the small two-dot button on the top plate. It has a range of up to 33 meters (with one source), Dolby said.

The company further explains that the Dolby Bluetooth Adapter has Dolby Digital decoding as well as optical pass-through (with an optical out port) that gives the user flexibility.

The peripheral has been designed for use with TVs without Bluetooth capabilities. The feature is becoming increasingly common in today's Smart TVs and streaming players. Some devices, such as Roku players, also let you connect wired headphones to the remote control.

The Dolby Bluetooth Adapter is available now for $70, or $49 when bought together with the Dolby Dimension headphones. More information can be found here
