How To Connect Bluetooth Headset

Before you start

  • To connect Bluetooth headphones to laptop / desktop computer, ensure laptop / desktop has a Bluetooth hardware module. Some laptop / desktop might not come with this hardware. Check the manual of your laptop / desktop on the availability of the Bluetooth module.
  • If your laptop / desktop does not come with a Bluetooth module, an external Bluetooth module adapter can be purchased to help you enable Bluetooth function on your laptop / desktop.
  • Make sure your computer supports the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) Bluetooth profile.
  • The drivers needed to connect your device to a computer are already included in the operating system.
  • Place your device within one meter of the computer / device.
  • Ensure your Bluetooth headphones is not connected to a previously paired device. The headphones can automatically connect with a previously paired device if Bluetooth is enabled and both devices are placed near each other. In this case, deactivate the Bluetooth function on the previously paired device or turn off the power to disconnect first.
  • Using your Bluetooth audio device for music playback or calls via USB is not possible.
  • Update your Bluetooth audio device to the latest firmware. If you’re looking for the firmware of your bluetooth audio device, please go to the Firmware & Software section of your model support page. If there is no firmware update under the Firmware & Software section, it just means that Sony is currently not offering a newer firmware.
