Bluetooth headphones do not have a cable to connect them to a device. But you don't have to be tech-savvy, because pairing your headphones with any Bluetooth-enabled device is very simple and almost automatically.

before you start

  • Make sure the device you want has Bluetooth functionality. You can usually look up this in the settings of the device or in the operating instructions. If necessary, you can retrofit your PC or television using a Bluetooth USB adapter.
  • Also, make sure that your device and headphones are no more than three feet apart. The closer they are, the stronger the Bluetooth connection and the easier it is for you to pair them.
  • It is also important that both devices are charged. However, it is not necessary for the devices to be fully charged. Just make sure you have enough battery power so that neither device suddenly turns off while pairing.
  • Also, make sure that the audio level on your smartphone, computer, or TV is good. If the sound is too low or on mute it can be confusing if you can't hear sound through the headphones even after connecting successfully.
