Uconnect theater Bluetooth headphones?

Does anyone know if it is possible to use my own headphones (bose Bluetooth qc35) with the uconnect system?

I know the system comes with 2 headsets but I would rather use my own or my kids/family may want to use their own for comfort etc.

Thanks.

If it's like every other in-vehicle system I've seen, it likely uses infrared and not Bluetooth.

Thanks for the clarification. Too bad they are infrared. Would have been better and more user fmchoices if they were Bluetooth.

I think the reason they use IR in backseat systems is to ensure that they don't interfere with any driver systems. Since IR is directional, it also allows them to make the headphones stop working if they get passed to the front seat.

There is a standard 3.5mm audio jack in the back of each seat so you can use normal wired headphones if you want.

Or, if you really want to use your Bluetooth headphones, you can get a 3.5mm to Bluetooth transmitter, something like this should work:

That is a pretty sweet little gizmo generaltso. That would also be perfect for use on a plane with their onboard tv systems when I do t want to have wires.

Thanks

Has anyone found any additional IR headphones that work with the system? I have five kids, but the system only came with 2 sets of headphones. I ordered 2 sets of dual-channel UConnect ones from previous systems, but they won't pick up the IR signal on either channel, so those are about to get returned. I found the 68239856AB in stock on two Mopar sites, but they are cost-prohibitive. ($85-$90 for 1 headphone)

Has anyone had any success adding additional IR headphones?

I know I can run cables or any other number of inelegant solutions, but I'm really trying to utilize the IR system.

Are these the ones you tried that didn't work (part# 05091246AA)?

I have some generic IR headphones that I've used in other cars that are supposed to be universal, but they don't work either.
