attached to my Denon X6400H is an LG Oled B7 65" TV So not sure if the sound should be coming from AVR which is how I have my LG Oled TV set up. what Equipment would I need to add the Headset? Thanks for your response.
I believe that you should have enough luck connecting it through bluetooth, but I can't say for absolute certain because I have the MDR1000X (the first generation of that headset) and the X3400H. If that is unsatisfactory or doesn't work, I imagine something like THIS
might work as I set something similar up for my PS4 Pro to connect to my analog input gaming chair....

i truly appreciate any and all genuine replies without sarcasm or putting me down for askin for direction.. thanks all
So, I suggest you reconsidering not running Audyssey calibration set-up -- what many/most of us do is run the award winning renown Audyssey to measure distance and initial levels; then, after, we switch to "Manual" mode and personally tweak the settings to fit our preferences and/or get the best out of it all...
First and foremost is (if you haven't done so yet) for you to fully read the first posts of this thread -- particularly/specifically post #3
section 1-b and 10-d -- to be sure you are familiarized with the good base knowledge like at what clock position to start the sub(s) with, how to handle crossover frequency, which speakers are to be set to "Large" or "Small", etc.
As you will find in those sections, it really helps explain and list how to have your subwoofers deal with most/all lower frequencies; thus, allowing more of the sound above a certain Hz (hence, utilizing the crossover setting) to be outputting through your LCR's and hopefully a more crystal and detailed sound. Also, it explains why Audyssey might not get figures absolutely and accurately exact and correct; which is to create a sort of "soundscape" versus a straight wall-of-speaker sound and uses various "adjustments" to speaker distance and levels to achieve it...
After all of this, as I said previously, is where many/most of us do personal tweaks to fit our liking/preference. Here is a couple of suggestions that I employ on mine that you might find useful/effective; I personally like to use Multi Ch Stereo or DTS Neural:X, but I've found that many here who are using all of this for music listening prefer "Pure Direct" ("This mode plays back an even higher quality sound than the “Direct” mode. The following circuits are stopped in order to further improve sound quality." from manual
) or "Direct" or plain "Stereo". If you've learned anything from the first posts of this thread, set Crossovers to at least 80Hz or above (hopefully not too high above or else you risk having your subs attempt to output some sound/frequencies that are best done by real speakers and not subwoofers...). As for "Subwoofer Mode", I do prefer having it set to LFE+Main (maybe because I utilize the dual-sub MultEQ-XT32 set up), but set it lower than the default (120Hz) as to be sure that, again, the subs aren't outputting sound that would sound better out of the speakers (in my case, 100Hz is what it is set at). Beyond these Audyssey settings, I suggest & have it set like this; in the "Sound Parameter" settings, I have Cinema EQ enabled, Loudness Management set to "Off" (I rather personally and manually manage any peaks or "loudness" myself, to be sure the sound isn't dampened or lowered more than I intend...), Dynamic Compression set to "Off", and "Low Frequency Effects" (LFE) set to -10dB (For proper playback of the different sources, we recommend setting to the values below. Dolby Digital sources: 0 dB DTS movie sources: 0 dB DTS music sources: -10 dB" from manual
) -- personal experience; I initially had this set to the default of 0dB, but for a couple of weeks had to go without my subs, so I set these in hopes to regain a bit of it through the speakers, and found that it really outputs a considerable amount "fuller" of an experience. In the Audyssey settings (under Settings/Audio), I have the MultEQ® XT32 set to "Reference", Dynamic EQ set to "On", Reference Level Offset set to "10 dB" (here is where you may want to decide on your own as every iteration of 5 is good for different things like "cinema", jazz or other music, classical or pop/rock, etc.), Dynamic Volume set to "Off" (again, I rather be the one to manually manage these types of things), and Audyssey LFC set to "Off" (although I do turn this on and put the Containment Amount to 7 if I don't want the sound to penetrate walls or to other rooms...).
I've found these settings really make a bright (aka good amount of "treble") and satisfying sound all around and may make a good base for you to start with -- especially considering that you are speaking about "treble" specific adjustments where these speakers and AVR doesn't really manage the speaker and sound in that way. If these and none other you find work, then it really may be your speakers.
Hope this helps some....
