My Sennheiser 170 wireless headphones...
My Sennheiser 170 wireless headphones (not cheap) appear to have stopped working. Had them for a few years. Tried everything I thought of to get them working again: turned power on and off, replugged plug and cables, even inserted fresh (non renewable) AAA batteries. I have one of two options for Just Answer. Either try again with your guidance (got to admit there's a mess of wires behind my Samsung HDTV which I've used headphones for), or get a recommendation for something new -- like a wireless or bluetooth gizmo plugged into the Optimal Audio Output and buy a compatible pair of speakers that don't cost an arm and a leg. Thoughts?

no surprise to you, the sound quality ain't great. And, no, I don't want a soundbar.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Oh, and no on the phone call. Let me make it easier for you. Do you have a recommendation on using wireless or bluetooth headphones and the best gadgets to go with them? Thanks.

OK, I'm working on Bluetooth devices, get back to you in few minutes

Thank you.

It needs a Bluetooth transmitter to connect to Optical Audio Out port on the TV, please click the following link to view the info

https://www.amazon.com/Bluetooth-Transmitter-HomeSpot-Wireless-Headphones/dp/B00QV77YIC

and following Bluetooth headphones is a good one that will last longer
