Last Updated Dec 19, 2021

Soundbars come in all different shapes and sizes,  Some are big and others are small.  However, this one is special.  It’s an LG and you got it for your birthday.  It came in the right shape, size, and color; it’s your favorite.  But, there’s a problem.  The only problem is that it isn’t the same brand as your TV.  Do you return it or try to figure out a way to make it work?

Fell in love with an LG soundbar that isn’t the same brand as your Hisense TV?  Well, don’t worry!  You’re probably wondering if they work together or not.  The good news is that they do.  As long as your LG soundbar has the option to connect via HDMI you will  be just fine.

Now that you know you can connect your soundbar to your Hisense TV, the question is how?  Most people have extra HDMI cords in the house that they don’t use anymore, but if you don’t you can easily order one online from Amazon, any HDMI cord will do.

How Do I Connect My LG Soundbar To My Hisense TV?

With most TV’s there are a few different ways to connect your LG Soundbar to your TV.  This can usually be done through Bluetooth, Wifi, or an optical connection.  However, with a Hisense TV, there is only one way to connect to your LG Soundbar.  That way is through an HDMI cable connection.  

HDMI cables usually come with your TV, the soundbar, or can be purchased separately.  HDMI cable connections are usually the most stable way to connect to your soundbar because it is hard-wired and will not have interference from other wireless connections in your immediate area.

Hard wired connections will almost always be more stable than Wifi or Bluetooth connections.  This is because they will not interfere with other connections that you or your neighbors might have around the house such as microwaves or wireless telephones.  The soundbar can also be connected via Bluetooth with other TV’s but not with a Hisense TV.

Some TV models also allow for an alternate connection method.  The user guide/manual of the TV and soundbar should be referenced for additional setup possibilities.

Is The LG Soundbar Compatible With Any TV?

Thankfully, the LG Soundbar is compatible with most newer TV’s.  It is rare that it won’t work with your TV.  The best way to know if there is a compatibility issue is to check your TV’s user manual and/or the LG Soundbar’s manual to see which TV models work and which ones do not work with it.

If you want to connect your soundbar to an older TV, don’t lose hope, it still may be possible but may require an advanced setup which requires spending extra money on a few different cables.

The TV and soundbar manual should be checked before purchasing in order to avoid any frustration during installation.  Most manuals can be checked online through the manufacturers website before a purchase is made.

Connecting a soundbar to an older TV that does not have Wifi or bluetooth capabilities could be done but would require the purchase of special adapters and cables in order for it to work.  This may not always be a possibility for TV’s without certain ports so make sure to check the ports on your TV to see which cables you might need in order to connect your soundbar to your older TV.

Does A Soundbar Have To Match The TV brand?

Most soundbars do no not have to be identical brands with its TV.  However, for a smoother setup process and consistent sound quality, it may be in your best interest to purchase a soundbar that is the same brand as your television.  

This is generally a good rule to follow but it is not necessary in order to be able to have good sound quality.

Can I Use Any Soundbar With My TV?

Almost all soundbars are compatible with any TV, especially if the TV is newer.  The main issue that most people run into when connecting their soundbar to their TV is how to connect the soundbar to the TV.  

As mentioned earlier the best way to connect them is via HDMI but there are other ways as well.  Check the manual for the model of your TV to see the connection options that are available.


It is good to know that your LG Soundbar can connect to your Hisense TV.  Isn’t it also good to know that you can use any soundbar with your Hisense TV as long as it has an HDMI connection? Creating the perfect sound can be difficult without the right soundbar.  

However, now that you know your LG soundbar works with your Hisense TV you can rest assured that you’ll be getting great sound quality and have a great TV watching experience!
