Some of them, particularly the older ones, are not Bluetooth devices. This is especially true of earlier models.

If you want your wireless headphones to work wirelessly, you need to make sure the devices are within a range of no more than 30 feet. After that, you need to make sure you push the button for the Bluetooth device.
If the Bluetooth technology is not already built into your Vizio television, you will need to acquire a separate Bluetooth adaptor in order to use it with your television.
Indeed, as was just discussed, there are some Vizio TVs that do not come equipped with Bluetooth technology. You may immediately verify this by browsing the TV's settings as well as the user manual for the TV.
After determining that the TV does not have this feature built in, you will need to purchase and install a Bluetooth adaptor for the TV. You won't need to ensure that both of your electronic gadgets are Bluetooth-enabled in order to use this item because it will enable you to send audio from one source to another.

Put the TV, the adapter, and the device you want to link all into the off position.
Activate the Bluetooth transmitter, and then link it up to your television set using the cable provided.
Turn on the television and the Bluetooth device at the same time.
Follow the steps for pairing the adapter that are given. Make sure that the TV and the Bluetooth device are both set to the pairing mode.
Perform some tests using your Bluetooth adapter.
If you have followed all of the directions, the adapter and the TV should work without any problems. If you run into any kind of problem, the owner's handbook or the customer assistance you have access to can provide you with advice on how to fix it.
If your Vizio TV has Bluetooth, you don’t have to follow the above steps to add a transmitter. Once you are ready to pair your TV and the headphone or soundbar, go ahead and set up the wireless feature. Here are the right steps to follow:
- On your Vizio TV remote, press the Home button.
- Navigate to Settings and click on Network & Accessories from the menu option that appears.

Now you’ve set up your Vizio TV and are ready to pair your Bluetooth device to it.
It has been established that you are able to make a wireless connection of any Bluetooth LE device to a Bluetooth-enabled Vizio TV. Due to the fact that the Bluetooth soundbar is a high-energy (HE) gadget, it does not fit into this category.
In other words, there is a little difference in how the soundbar is connected to the television.
The specific procedure that you should follow to connect your devices to your TV should be determined by the different sorts of ports that it already has.
If your Vizio TV does not support Bluetooth, the following steps are the typical procedures to follow:
Establish a connection between the adapter and the power supply.
Establish a connection between your Vizio TV and the adaptor.
Start by entering the pairing mode on the soundbar.
Put your adaptor into pairing mode by turning on Bluetooth.
Check that the soundbar and the adaptor are not too far apart from one another.
If the audio port on the Vizio TV is red and white, and the soundbar has an auxiliary port, what should you do in order to connect the Bluetooth soundbar to the Vizio TV? In this instance, a 3.5 mm RCA cable should be used.
Connect the soundbar to the TV through the audio port if the two devices have ports that are compatible with one another.
If the Bluetooth connection feature is supported by your Vizio TV, press and hold the Bluetooth button that is located on the side of your soundbar. This will put your soundbar into the pairing mode for your Bluetooth device. Once the soundbar has been identified by the TV, you may pair it with the TV by following these steps: First, ensure that the soundbar and the TV are within a range of 30 feet of one another. Next, press and hold the Bluetooth button located on the soundbar to enter the pairing mode.
Use the remote that was provided to you to navigate to the Settings menu.
Make sure your soundbar is selected by searching for it in the Speaker List after selecting Sound Output.
Choose the Pair & Connect option.
You have two options if you want to connect Bluetooth headphones to Vizio TV. Consider whether the TV has a built-in Bluetooth device.
Here are the ideal steps you should follow to pair Bluetooth headphones with Vizio TVs that come with built-in Bluetooth:
- Ensure the headphones and the TV are within 30 feet range, and then press and hold the Bluetooth button on the headphone to initiate the pairing mode.
- On your supplied remote, navigate to the Settings menu.
- Select Sound Output and go to Speaker List and search and select the headphones.
- Select Pair & Connect.
No Built-in Bluetooth
If your TV doesn’t have a built-in Bluetooth, you have to acquire a compatible Bluetooth adapter and then follow the instructions below:

Low-energy Bluetooth is a standard feature on most new Vizio TVs. It's possible to utilize a Bluetooth transmitter or the Audio Out connector on the back of the TV if you want to connect it to high-energy Bluetooth devices, such as a soundbar.
If you wish to use headphones, you can do the same thing. You don't need to buy an adapter to connect your device to your Vizio TV.
