    Are Bluetooth headphones an option?

    If the TV has Bluetooth capability, you should be able to turn it on in the settings. There may even be a button on the remote.

    Inconsolate is right. The headphones are not connected to the Tv's speakers output, they are connected to a preamplifer and that does have an effect on the sound quality. Most TV are not going to install a very good sounding preamplifer so your better off going with an external headphone amplifier coming out of the analog outputs OR using a DAC headphone amplifier and coming off the digital outputs.

    Headphones are not connected to the TV speakers at all. They are connected to a low level Pre-amp circuit output. Their quality of output depends on the quality of the Pre-amp, not the Television's speakers.

    No.

    Each responds in its own way.

    Headphones receive the same signal that the TV's speakers did. You are bypassing the TV's speakers, so the TV's speaker output doesn't matter. But the signal to the speakers does matter. Headphones receive the signal to the speakers (wirelessly, or wired).

    No.

    Headphones replace the speakers, with their own speakers.

    All Headphones are is small speakers attached to the head, with the intent of excluding extraneous/ambient sounds.
