How to Use iTunes With a Bluetooth Headset

By Jason Taetsch

Bluetooth headsets allow you to listen to audio from your computer without having to be actually physically connected to it. The Bluetooth interface is a wireless connection method that enables devices from different manufacturers to communicate and share data with one another. Use iTunes with a Bluetooth headset to listen to your favorite songs on your computer while cleaning or doing some other task away from your computer.

Step 1

Put the Bluetooth headset in "Pairing" or "Discoverable" mode. This often involves pushing a multi-function button on the device, but check with the headset's user guide if you are unsure of the specific procedure.

Step 2

Click "Start" and click "Control Panel."

Step 3

Click "Add a Device" option that is found under the "Hardware And Sound" category in the "Control Panel" window that appears. Your computer will automatically search for available Bluetooth-compatible devices within 33 feet and open a list of located devices. Click the "Bluetooth Headset" icon in the window and click "Next" to pair the headset with your computer. The "Connecting the Device" message will appear in the bottom of the window.

Step 4

Play a song on iTunes and the audio will automatically be sent to the headphones.
