How to connect Bluetooth Headphones to PC

If 2019 has been indicative of anything, it is that the future is wireless. With the Macbook Pro getting rid of every single port that a regular person might need and replacing them with a USB Type-C port, it is becoming increasingly difficult to carry around wires for every port that you use. One of the most integral laptop peripherals in today’s age is a headphone. For most people, using headphones is easy. You just plug it into the 3.5 mm audio jack and start grooving to your tunes. But for those with wireless headphones, the steps can be slightly tedious.

So, today we’re going to tell you how to connect those Bluetooth headphones to your PC without any hassle.

Here we go!

Step 1: Check your Bluetooth headphone’s user manual to figure out how to activate your headset’s pairing mode. Usually, there should be a separate button, or you might have to long-press the power button. If you run into trouble, check the manual for pairing methods.

Step 2: Switch on the Bluetooth feature of your computer by going to Start>Settings>Devices>Bluetooth & Other Devices>Bluetooth switch on.

Step 3: Select the option titled ‘Add Bluetooth or other device’

Step 4: Select the option titled ‘Bluetooth’ when asked ‘What kind of device do you want to add?’ on the screen.

Step 5: For older devices, the Bluetooth screen might ask you to input a pairing code, which is usually ‘0000’ or ‘1234’. Your device manual should have further information about this. For newer devices, the screen might show you a prompt of confirming a randomized pairing code. Click ‘Confirm’ or ‘Yes’ or whichever option is suitable. 

Step 6: The headphones should now be paired. The screen of your laptop/desktop should show the name of the device and ‘Connected’ below its name. If not, then you can click on your device name in the paired devices list and initiate the connection process.

Step 7: And now you’re done! Your Bluetooth headphone should now be ready to go!
