If you own an Amazon Fire TV device, you might have encountered situations where you wanted to enjoy a movie without disturbing others or enhance the audio quality using headphones, such as Apple AirPods.

How to connect them?

Connecting Bluetooth devices, including Apple AirPods, to your Amazon Fire TV is a straightforward process that can be done directly from the device’s configuration menu. No additional steps or external programs are required.

Step 1. Access the configuration button in the menu (⚙️)

Step 2. Look for the word Remotes and Bluetooth devices.

Step 3. Select “Other Bluetooth devices”

Step 4. It is very important to have the headphones in pairing mode so that the FireTV detects them as if it were a mobile. And then select “Add Blueooth devices.

Once you have selected “Add Bluetooth Devices” from the Fire TV’s configuration menu, all nearby devices, including your headphones, will appear on the screen. Simply locate the name of your headphones and select it. The pairing process will only take a few seconds, and once completed, you will be able to listen to all audio from your Fire TV through your headphones without disturbing anyone.

It’s worth noting that like with a mobile device, your Fire TV will remember the pairing information for your headphones. This means that when you turn on your Fire TV, it will likely connect automatically to your headphones, and audio will be routed through them. If you find that the TV’s sound is not playing through the headphones, you can simply turn off the headphones or delete their pairing information using the same menu where you connected them.

Option 2

If you’re looking for a solution that works with any device, including your regular TV, without the need for FireTV or any specific equipment, you can consider using a Bluetooth transmitter and receiver. This device allows you to connect your headphones to it and set it up once, after which it will remain configured indefinitely. All you have to do is plug the transmitter into the device you want to connect it to using a mini-jack, such as your television. Whether you’re watching regular channels or streaming from platforms like Netflix, the audio will always be transmitted to your headphones.

The main advantage of using a Bluetooth transmitter and receiver is its versatility. However, the only downside is that you need to purchase the product, so it’s not a free option like the first method mentioned. But if you’re looking for a reliable solution that can be used with any device, this type of transmitter is an ideal choice. It also offers a receiver mode, allowing you to play audio from your mobile device in your car, even if your car doesn’t have Bluetooth capabilities.
