Bluetooth headphones are a fine thing: Thanks to wireless connection, no cables are in the way and you can not only listen to your music undisturbed with your smartphone, but also on a PC or laptop or turn up the volume while gambling. So that the connection works well, we have put together a few tips for you – we refer to the Windows versions 7 and 10, but also in Windows 8, the connection works the same way.
Turn on Bluetooth
First, you should check whether the Bluetooth function is activated on your PC or laptop. You can easily check this in the Windows settings under the item “Devices”. If necessary, turn on Bluetooth. If the mainboard of your computer is not yet equipped with Bluetooth, we recommend that you buy a so-called Bluetooth dongle . It is easily connected via a free USB port.

Pair headphones with the PC
Now you can under the point “Bluetooth and other devices” (this can be found next to or under the item “devices”) to add a new device. Windows then automatically searches for all nearby devices whose Bluetoothis turned on. Your headphones should appear in the list as well. Select these and wait a few seconds. Now they should be connected to the PC or laptop. Many headphones also emit a short tone as soon as they are successfully paired. Normally your headphones will be found again and again, as soon as you activate Bluetooth on your computer – so you do not have to pair the device each time anew. If you have problems with the connection, so please look again in the instructions for use of your headphones or contact the Windows support.
