Im at the in-laws trying to get a workaround to connect a pair of BT headphones for my hard of hearing MIL but still have the sound bar going for my FIL.

They have a Samsung 4k 2015 TV and a Samsung HW-H751 sound bar connected via optical cable. They want to use Bose Qc35 headphones but as far as i can tell, no matter what way I connect the headphones to the tv it will cut the sound to the sound bar.

I guess they could get 2 headphones and pair them but what about when others visit?

Is there a way to split the optical to a BT transmitter?

Has anyone found a solution that works!
