You need an optical out, and one of these;

I've a few pairs of headphones, blue tooth variety. The Sony WH1000XM3 are the absolute best for noise cancellation.

You don't NEED optical out. Most work on headphone socket BUT it will cut the sound for everyone else in the room.

Have a read of this from a well respected magazine.

For the transmitter that I recommended, you DO need an optical out. Read the data from Crutchfield.

Real friendly website.

Ok John,Firstly If you have a modern Smart Tv it should have on the side USB ports as well as your standard Headphone 3.5mm Socket,RCA Females as well as an optical (SPDIF) “NO”you Do not need to use the optical socket.
You need and this is the easiest way.

Bluetooth headphones obviously
(I use Either my Bowers and Wilkins P7 Wireless or my Bowers and Wilkins PX Headphones)Best Sound in my opinion although the Sony 1000XM3 have better Noise Cancelling.

Then you need An Avantree Priva 111 Bluetooth Sender(Which I use on 2 of my TVs)
It has its own battery but plugs into the USB Socket of your TV which powers it
Full time if you want and charges the battery if you want to use it portable on other TVs,It also has a 3.5mm Plug that connects to your headphone input on your tv and has the ability to Run 2 x Pairs of headphones via Bluetooth at the same time so 2 people can watch the same programme via headphones.30m range and no Lip Sync issues being low latency Aptx.👍🎧
