Successfully Pairing and Connecting Your Bluetooth Audio Device in Windows

Connecting Bluetooth devices can be a pain! While resolving thousands of Bluetooth issues here at Plugable, we’ve learned that the problem is often something going wrong in the pairing process. As we’ve helped customers with these issues, we’ve developed a step-by-step procedure that should work in any situation where a device isn’t pairing properly. We’ve also put together a database of pairing instructions for a wide range of Bluetooth audio devices.

There are two sets of instructions below, one for Windows 8/8.1/10 and one for Windows 7. If you are having troubles connecting, try the instructions. If it fails at any point, contact us at support@plugable.com and tell us which step it failed on, and we’ll already have a good start on the troubleshooting process!

Windows 8/8.1/10

1. If you have previously connected your Bluetooth audio device to any phone, tablet, or to a different computer, turn that device’s Bluetooth off and “Unpair” or “Forget” the connection in that device’s Bluetooth settings. This is very important to make sure your audio device doesn’t automatically connect to one of them instead of to the computer.

2. On the computer, click the Bluetooth icon in the system tray (click the upward pointing arrow near the clock) and select Add a Bluetooth Device. The Bluetooth and & Other Devices window (Manage Bluetooth devices window in Windows 8/8.1) will open.

Windows 10

Windows 8

3. If a listing for your audio device appears in this window, click it and select Remove Device, if that option is available, then confirm in the next screen. If no listing appears, proceed to the next step.

4. Select your device from the database below and follow the instructions for putting it into pairing mode. If your device isn’t listed here, please let us know in the comments below or at support@plugable.com! We’ll add it!

Windows 7

Note: Some recent Bluetooth audio devices use a non-standard connection method and require special treatment in Windows 7. These include the Bose QuietComfort 35, SoundLink AE2, SoundLink Color II, SoundSport Wireless, Sennheiser PXC 550, UE Boom 2, Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay S3, and others. If you have one of these, or if following the instructions below doesn’t work for you, see this blog post or contact us at support@plugable.com.

1. If you have previously connected your Bluetooth audio device to any phone, tablet or a different computer, turn that device’s Bluetooth off and “Unpair” or “Forget” the connection in that device’s Bluetooth settings. This is very important to make sure your audio device doesn’t automatically connect to one of them instead of to the computer.

2. On the computer, click the Start button, then select Devices and Printers.

3. In the Devices and Printers window, if you see an entry for your device, right-click it and select Remove Device, then select Yes in the next window.

4. Put your audio device in pairing mode, following the instructions in the owner’s manual or look up the instructions in our database above. The procedure typically involves holding a button or moving a switch until an LED starts flashing showing you are in pairing mode. If your device has already been paired to a different Bluetooth device, like a phone or tablet, you may need to follow a different procedure for the second time you pair. If you don’t find your device in the database, contact us at support@plugable.com, and we can help.

5. In the Devices and Printers window, select Add a device.

6. An icon for your earphones should show up in the Add a Device window. Click it, then select Next.

7. The audio device should connect. Try playing audio through it. If it doesn’t work, continue with step 8.

8. Right click the speaker icon on in the system tray at lower right.

9. Select Playback devices. The audio device should be on the list as “Headphones” or “Speaker.” Right-click the listing and click Set as Default device. If the device has a microphone, you can click “Set as Default Communications Device” to use its microphone in Skype or other applications that require two-way communication. For some devices this setting may be available under a separate “Headset” icon. Please note when the Headset profile is being used, the device will be limited to mono, telephone quality sound. This is a Bluetooth limitation.

10. Your audio device should now be working. If it does not work, and you have a Plugable Bluetooth adapter, please contact us at support@plugable.com and let us know at which step the process failed. We are happy to help!
