The drivers needed to connect your device to a computer are already included in the operating system.
If your computer asks for a Bluetooth driver, contact your computer manufacturer.
The instructions may vary depending on your Bluetooth device model and computer's operating system (OS). Follow the instructions accordingly.
Watch the video for instructions or, if you need more detailed instructions, skip to the steps below.
Step 1: Put the headphones or speaker into pairing mode
Putting the headphones or speaker in pairing mode makes it discoverable by the computer.
The steps to enter pairing mode varies depending on the device you want to connect. However, for most devices, you just press and hold the Power button for about seven seconds or until the Bluetooth indicator flashes rapidly (depending on the device). And for headphones with a charging case, when pairing the headphones for the first time or after initializing, the headphones automatically enter the pairing mode when you remove them from the charging case.
Note: Your Bluetooth headphones and speakers may immediately go into pairing mode when used for the first time. However, the second time you pair it, you may have to press and hold the Power button for about seven seconds.
If model-specific instructions are needed to put your headphones or speakers into pairing mode, check your product
