Id like to say i have a reason. The lef tear fixed itself. Connecting to the tv, basically I have to turn off bluetooth for any other device that the earbuds are connected too when Im ready to use the TV, more of a workaround than a solution, but since I only connect the buds to the TV and my phone, Its really not an issue to turn off bluetooth on the phone when im ready to use the TV. The la, i cant answer that one either. I caught this one on accident. Was listending to music, happened to open a video and was like "**bleep**, wheres the lag". So i tested other apps, and other devices. No lag. (this is a recent development)
Wish I had answers. Seem to just have gotten lucky, maybe.
I am sorry to hear you are still having trouble connecting. The information below is from your TV's user manual on Pg. 70 and linked to Pg. 108.
From the manual:
This function is not available on certain models in specific geographical areas.
Read Before Using Bluetooth Devices
This would suggest a few things could be happening. You may need to toggle off Surround or other sound settings to enable Bluetooth to function correctly, there may be signal interference preventing connection, or there may be an inherent incompatibility present.
You might also check with Samsung and see if they are able to provide any suggestions.
I am certainly sorry to hear about your continued difficulty. My apologies if offense was given as I was unsure whether you had read the Samsung material regarding Bluetooth connections. At this point, if clearing the pairing list, firmware update, and multiple attempts at paring with the TV are unsuccessful it seems as if there may be an underlying incompatibility. This could be for a variety of reasons since there are a variety of factors involved. Samsung's own material states, "Compatibility issues may occur, depending on the Bluetooth device."
As a last resort you might consider trying a Bluetooth adapter. Though I do not have a specific recommendation, they are widely available and may provide a better experience for you.
If you do use an adapter, please do return to the Community and let everyone know what works for you.

I have the same issue.
The SoundSport Free show up on the TV's bluetooth speaker list but then fail to connect. I have tried everything that was listed in the previous posts and replies, in particular (i) update Samsung TV firmware; (ii) clear device list on SoundSport Free; (iii) move close to the TV; (iv) try at least 50 times; (v) try connecting the SoundSport Free to other devices (works fine); (vi) turn off other devices, etc.
Connecting my Quiet Control 30 to the Samsung TV works perfectly well.
Is there any update on this rather annoying issue?
