AirPods not connecting to Samsung TV

Similar to many people, you may not be able to successfully configure the audio through your AirPods on the very first try.

If this is the case, we recommend going to the Sound Output section again and choosing the right sound output option, which can be external audio speakers.

Another simple reason that you cannot connect your AirPods to your Samsung TV can be that your Samsung TV doesn’t support Bluetooth connectivity. This is especially true if you have a relatively old Samsung TV model.

One simple way to connect your AirPods or any other Bluetooth headphone to your non-Bluetooth Samsung TV is to use a Bluetooth adapter that has a 3.5 mm audio connector.
