Bluetooth Headphones for PC and Smart Tv

Hey all,


So I'm trying to figure this out. I've moved into an apt with thin walls so need to use headphones for louder movies and games. I've purchased a new smart tv, and am trying to figure out if I can find a pair of headphones (bluetooth?) with a mic that will work for both. I think I can convert the signal from the TV with a device like this:


https://www.amazon.ca/Avantree-Audik...tronics&sr=1-3


Which would take care of the TV portion, but if I wanted to use it to game with as well (connect to PC - needs a mic) then I assume I'd need to the bluetooth dongle that came with the set to plug into my PC.


Are there any headphones that could pick up separate sources? I.e. if I switch to the apps on the smart tv, have it paired with the device above; but if I'm gaming from PC have it paired to the computer?


Thanks!

There are BT 5 products able to send audio to 2 devices at the same time.
In case of receivers e.g. BT headphone it can only connect to 1 at the time.
Hence, when you switch to another device you have to re-connect.

Using the Avantree, you might as well use this product to connect to the TV or the PC
In case of gaming its APTX LL might be benificial

Have you checked out the Sony WH-CH500N? I have been using them for about a year now and they are pretty good for the price. I always use them with my TV when I am watching a movie or playing console, and they sound pretty good for what they are. The battery life on these are also pretty good. I think they are rated to last up to 30 hours or something.
