I looked at the specs on this tv and it is not bluetooth which means you will need an external bluetooth transmitter connected to the optical out port or directly to the cable box if you have one and nothing else like a dvd player connected to this tv

Here is an example of such a device , it has both analog and optical inputs and can match to 2 setts of headphones at a time ;

Just connect it to the back of your tv`s optical out and pair it with your bose and you`re done
