Due to the reduced number of moving parts, Bluetooth earbuds are more durable than their wired counterparts. This may be appealing to some, but it may leave them wondering if and how their new headphones will function with their other electronic gadgets.

In contrast to wired headphones, which have always been "plug and play," Bluetooth headphones now necessitate a modicum of technical know-how.

Follow these steps to pair your Sony Bluetooth headphones with your phone, tablet, or computer. These instructions should help you connect your Sony headphones to your computer, smartphone, or tablet running Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, or all of the above.

Pairing Your Sony Earphones With Your Device

When it comes to connecting to Bluetooth, Sony has established a universal protocol for all of their products.

When using Sony headphones for wireless pairing, press and hold the power button for about seven seconds. It's time for the indicator light to begin flashing red, green, or blue. You can now remove your finger from the power button of the headset, as it is in pairing mode.  

Combining Workstations

In order to watch videos or listen to music while they work, many people connect their mobile devices to their computers.

In order to listen to music or videos while working, you must first pair your earbuds with your computer. It helps many people stay on task and concentrate.

It makes perfect sense to link your headphones to your computer. It's a good way to prevent waking up anyone you're sharing a house with while you work.   

Connecting Sony Wireless Headphones to a Windows Computer

The first step in pairing your earbuds with a Windows computer is to put the headphones into pairing mode by pressing and holding the power button for seven seconds.

You should then press the Windows key and enter "Bluetooth and Other Devices Settings" into the search bar. Best-match is the option you should choose.  

Access the "Add Device" button in the Bluetooth and other devices setup menu. You'll want to put it up top, right next to where you toggle the Bluetooth connection's power.  

The process of connecting a computer to a wireless device is as simple as opening the "Add Device" dialogue and selecting the "Bluetooth" option. If you frequently use wireless devices, you should become accustomed to seeing this.  

When you turn on your chosen Sony headphones afterward, pairing should occur automatically.   

Sony Headphones and MacOS: How to Get It Working

The Macintosh Operating System (OS) is very similar to Microsoft Windows.

Bluetooth, on the other hand, can be found in a different location. You can see it in the bottom-right corner of your screen, in the status bar. To enable the Bluetooth connector and the option for it to appear in the status bar, you must first turn them both on from the Control Center.  

Control Center can be accessed by selecting "Bluetooth options" from the Apple menu. The "Show Bluetooth in Status Bar" option can be found here. Toggle this option on or off with the button above. The Bluetooth icon in the Status Bar can be used as a quick launcher to the Bluetooth settings in your computer's Settings menu.  

Once the computer's Bluetooth settings have been activated, you can pair your Sony headphones by clicking the "connect" button on the headphones.

How to Pair Sony Headphones with an Android Device

It takes no more than three simple steps to pair your Sony headphones with an Android device. There will be a Bluetooth icon in the connectivity section of the notification bar if Bluetooth is already enabled.  

To check if your Bluetooth is active, pull down the top of the screen to reveal the notification menu. This will bring up the status bar with all of its additional settings options. Whenever Bluetooth is activated, its icon will change from gray to blue.  

Since the icon only serves as a toggle to turn Bluetooth on and off and not a direct link to the settings, you will need to bring down the menu once more to access all of the feature's configurations. Choose "Bluetooth" from the menu that appears when you tap the Bluetooth icon.   

To access the Bluetooth settings, click that.

To connect your Android device to your Sony headphones, tap the name of the headphones. Your Android and headphones are now paired.

In-Ear Headphones by Sony: Instructions for iOS Devices

When compared to pairing with an Android device, connecting Sony earbuds to an iOS device is a breeze. To get started, open your Apple device's settings and look for the Bluetooth options.

A simple tap in the Devices menu will pair your device with your Sony earbuds.  

"I have my headphones in, but I can't hear anything."

You may not hear anything through your headphones despite their connection for a number of reasons. Some mobile devices, when they detect headphones connected for a phone call, will silence the media playing on the device.  

If you are having trouble hearing your music or videos while wearing headphones, you should first verify that the volume for your media is turned up.  

Also, there are times when driver problems prevent your headphones from working with an audio source.   

Android Bluetooth Devices Troubleshooting on Windows

Try the audio troubleshooter first to see if that helps. Select "Find and Fix Problems with Playing Audio" from the search results when you press the Windows key or open the start menu. Click the "Headphones" option and "Troubleshoot" to see if the computer can resolve the issue.  

If your headphones don't appear in the audio troubleshooter, it's likely because the computer isn't correctly picking up the signal from them. In this case, you'll need to manually install the drivers you downloaded from Sony's website.  

Methods for Fixing MacOS Sound Problems

The majority of headphone-related problems in MacOS are caused by the computer improperly setting the default audio device. Fixing these is as simple as adjusting a few sliders in Apple's system preferences.  

You can begin tweaking your Mac's audio settings by selecting System Preferences from the menu. To power on your Sony headphones, simply click the button. Make sure they're using the default device so that they'll always use that when they reconnect.  

After turning on your headphones, if you still don't hear anything, try disconnecting them from your device in the Bluetooth settings. The next step is to try reconnecting the headphones to see if that solves the problem.  

Fixing Android Audio Problems

Turning off media audio is a common cause of Android devices' audio problems. To access the audio mixer, press the volume buttons, then the three dots in the very top right corner of the volume bar. Selecting this will reveal the volume control menu.  

When the additional settings menu is activated, you should see four individual volume bars. Third is for adjusting the volume of playing media, and fourth controls the phone's overall volume.  

How to Make a Quick Change:

Combining Two Voices: Marshall / Sony / Specifically, Altec Lansing1

Headphone/earbud Combination: Sony / Tozo / Aftershokz / JLab / Bose / JBL / Soundcore

In Conclusion

Because of the lack of uniformity in Bluetooth connectivity, it can be difficult to determine how one device will interact with another.

Sony has made this easier than with most other brands by programming the vast majority of their headphones similarly. That's why it doesn't matter so much which model you own, the pairing procedure is nearly universal.

You can get back to using your preferred devices and accessing the internet in no time at all by simply conducting a Google search if you get stuck.
