    My family owns a 55" LG TV (model 55UJ6300) and would like to use an external wireless headset with it. The headset has only analog 3.5mm connection. On Amazon, I see they carry small devices that can read the ARC signal from a TV output and extract the audio to an analog/toslink connection.

    Has anyone had any luck with those extractor devices? I'm looking for a suggestion on what to get, as well as a known/tested HDMI cable to use for ARC signal from the TV.

    I've had success with the following. I'm sure there are cheaper options but this combo will work with ARC and 4K HDR/Dolby Vision without issue.
