How to Connect Bluetooth Headphones to a Computer

By Ann Mapleridge

Bluetooth headphones can allow you to privately listen to music or other audio from your computer, without having to be physically connected to your PC. Many Bluetooth headphones are able to transmit a signal for up to 30 feet, making it possible to roam throughout your home or office without dropping the connection with your computer. If you've never used a pair of Bluetooth headphones with you computer, you will first need to pair them with your PC.

Step 1

Power on your Bluetooth headphones and place them near your computer.

Step 2

Press the "Start" button on your computer's desktop. Select "Control Panel" from the options that appear, followed by "Network and Internet" and then "Set Up a Bluetooth-enabled Device."

Step 3

Click the "Devices" tab within the window that appears and then click "Add" to have your computer start to search for your headphones. Your computer will search for any Bluetooth-enabled devices that are powered on near it.

Step 4

Select your headphones from the list of devices that appears and click "Next." When prompted, enter the passkey for your headphones into your computer. The passkey is a series of numbers that will help identify your headphones to your computer. You can find the passkey printed on a sticker on the back of the headphones, or on its instruction book.

Step 5

Click "Finish" to complete the process of connecting your headphones to your computer.
