Before I forget again, I'm looking into wireless ear buds for my treadmill that I have at home. I'm not real sure what it is I need or how to do this....

I jog early in the mornings, like 0500. I have the treadmill in the rec room along with a 40" Samsung LED TV, an Onkyo AVR and a pair of M3's. Well at five in the morning, I'm the only person who's up, and the sound carries throughout the house.

I've been to gyms before where they had little boxes mounted to the treadmill that you plug your headphones into, and then you can hear what's on the TV.

I tried to Google this, and all get are Bluetooth head phones that talk to a phone. That is not what I want.

I'm not real sure, but I think my TV might have Bluetooth. It does have a USB port in the back too.

So, two part question....

1) suggestions for how to do this?
2) what's a good set of ear buds for jogging, that does not have a cord bouncing around.

The search term you want is "wireless sport headphones." I found these on Amazon and they seem to be decent, certainly fine for TV.

To get the audio out from your TV to the phones, if the built-in Bluetooth doesn't do the trick, something like this should do it.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Oh cool! Thanks Peter. I like the widget for plugging into the TV. That's what I was imagining I'd need. Just couldn't find it.
