Bluetooth headphones for Smart TV without lag?


Standard Member
I've heard that when connecting wireless bluetooth headphones to a smart TV there is a lag/delay unless the TV's bluetooth has aptx low latency.

My question is, does the bluetooth that is built-in to smart TV's such as Samsung smart TV's (the 32" range) have the aptx low latency or would this require connecting something to the TV so there isn't a lag/delay between the picture and audio to the bluetooth headphones?

I have never seen aptx LL mentioned in the specs of any TV.
It isn’t a given that you will get lag or sync problems using Bluetooth audio from a TV.
It's a case of suck it and see, they’re all different.
I used Sony WH-1000XM3 Bluetooth headphones on my Panasonic TX49FX750B TV with no lag whatsoever.

I too use Sony WH-1000XM3 but with a LG OLED and there's no lag at all. Uses the vanilla Apt-X codec to connect.
