Bluetooth technology has been one of the most convenient ways to listen to music across all devices – but many don’t know that their everyday PC can be used for wireless headphone playback. It’s easy to just think of that as something your phone, tablet, or perhaps car radio would have.
Making a Bluetooth Connection
In order to connect a pair of Bluetooth headphones to a PC, you first need to make sure the device is discoverable. This exact process may vary with small points from device to device, but as a general rule, a button will be referenced in the device’s manual to make it broadcast a Bluetooth signal. When that button is pressed, go to your taskbar and go to the action center icon – which looks like a little text box on the bottom right-hand side.
Make sure Bluetooth is turned on and then pick your pair of headphones from the device listing. As long as it is a major brand pair of headphones, it should show up in plain English – although if something does appear to be in a foreign language, it could be a sign of a bootleg product. Once the device is found, it should remain paired to the PC unless you decide to unpair it.
As you can see, it isn’t all that difficult to set up a pair of Bluetooth headphones with a computer. When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck with a set of headphones is easy to do with your PC as you will not only have your local music library – but possibly a subscription service offering up even more music to listen to. With the right pair of headphones, this can lead to you hearing new parts of a song or even gaining a newfound appreciation for a band or group.
