ok so Wednesday i went to best buy and bought a pair of Sony MDR-XB950BT bluetooth headphones, i can pair them with my PC fine but there's no sound, i've set them to my default sound device, still nothing.. i also ran a driver scan on my computer and it said that the driver called Realtek bluetooth 4.0 adapter was out of date so i updated it but that still made no difference,

they work fine with my phone so i don't think its a problem with the headphones, so i'm not sure if its a problem with my PC or if these headphones just aren't compatible with windows 10,

i still have the packaging and receipt so i can return them if i have to, but i'd like to know if there's anything else i can try first

i've also tried un-pairing them and re-pairing them multiable times to no avail

Click on speakers on right of taskbar, click arrow pointing up to expand..... are they listed, if so select.

Open settings, type Bluetooth in find a setting box.....see attachment.

Check Bluetooth is turned on in box on action centre.

Hi, I bought the HP Pavillion 17-y054sa a couple of months back and decided to replace my worn out beats headphones, with some bluetooth headphones. Unfortunately the laptop appears to not be able to process streamed bluetooth audio while using the wifi antenna. The bluetooth headphones work flawlessly when using ethernet or no wifi enabled, but are very "laggy" or unresponsive when trying to play audio over bluetooth at the same time as using wifi. Have tested various scenarios, but came to the concludion that the laptop is jusy not capable of doing both, which is shame considiering its a reasonably newish model on the market, and the fact that bluetooth connected audio as well using wifi is common-place. I have updated drivers too, which has made no difference. Any help would be appreciated from the community - and just to point out; I'm very IT savvy as I'm a infrastructure/network engineer by profession Cheers for your help Lee

I bought an i& desktop with BT keyboard & mouse. I've recently begun to lose connectivity with the keyboard.

I also upgraded to a Samsung SSD and I mention that as it is the reason I removed a lot of bloatware. Long story short, I call Sony and they cant help naturally except to send a new keyboard. The instrucitons tell me to use a file on C named wconnect.exe to enable pairing of the new keyboard.

And it's one of the files I cleaned out and Sony cant help except to tell me to do a factory restore to get it. I dont have the three days it would take.

Can anyone make any suggestions that would help ? Thanks.

Hi Satellite users,

I recently had a problem getting my Toshiba Satellite P50t-B running Windows 10 to detect (and hence connect) to my Sony MDR-XB50BS Bluetooth Headphones. The symptom of the problem was that the "MDR-XB50BS" device didn't appear in the list of available devices on the Windows Activity Centre "Connect" screen, nor in the Windows Settings -> Devices -> Bluetooth and other devices -> Add a device screen. Since the device never appeared, I couldn't connect to it.

The solution to the problem turned out to be upgrading my Toshiba Satellite BIOS from version 1.10 to BIOS version 1:50 available on the Drivers & Updates tab of the Toshiba Satellite Support site. The release notes mention a Bluetooth issue being corrected in version 1.40 and while I can't say for certain that this is the same issue I encountered, updating the BIOS was the last thing that I tried before the problem went away, and it's reasonable to expect that a relatively new technology like Bluetooth might have had early implementation bugs.

The other point to note is that if you've already paired the headphones with another device, like I had with my iPhone, then you have to hold the power button down for 7 seconds at power on in order to enter Bluetooth pairing mode first time you try to connect it to the Satellite.

I hope this helps someone someday!

Cheers,
Graham

Answer:Bluetooth audio connection issue (on x240 with Win7)

Wohoo! -- I just solved the exact same problem.  Anyways: I could also pair to my headset, but nothing happened when I clicked the links. (I even tried to install Skype to see if that would enable the link, but that didn't help.) This is what you should do: Disable the Bluetooth radio ("Turn adapter off"). Computer will hang for a while and report a dll hanging. Continue through the dialog box (in effect killing the DLL process). Start the Bluetooth adapter again, and the links work. Use the VoIP link to use your headset for Lync, Skype, Hangouts or whatever. Hope this helps. Please let me know if it works.  Cheers, ~Silverjam :-)

Hi there I own a HP Spectre x360 - 13-4070nz (ENERGY STAR) and I just acquired a Bluetooth Headset from Bose, the new Bose QC 35. The headset works like a charm any Windows 10 PC I tried (Dell XPS13, Lenovo Yoga) and with my Android Nexus 5X. However, I have a blocker issue if I use it with the Spectre x360. Pairing works, even if I had to repeat the process several times. Once paired, listening to music works mostly fine ? in stereo mode.The problem arises when I try to perform a call. The problem is the same with any program, Skype, Skype For Business, Skype Preview or my Softphone (Bria). I can hear the counterpart, but they can only hear a really loud static noise. I tried an Echo / sound test service with Skype, and the recorded sound is exactly as my counterpart described. I can record and attach it if you want.I have updated all drivers, soundcard, Bluetooth, BIOS, I have updated from Windows 10 to Windows 10 Anniversary update, and I have update the QC35 from 1.0.3 to 1.06. Nothing helps. I have tried all possible setting configuration, remove the Bluetooth device, added it again etc. Still static noise.It is clearly an issue with the Spectre x360, and as far as I know this model had several other Bluetooth issues before. Therefore my question to HP: could you please look into it and update the drivers to support the Bose QC35, which is a hit on the market?Thank you and best regards

1) Issues with Bluetooth - machine couldn't find other devices and there were problems with communications;

2) I'm very, very disappointed with the quality of sound. The speakers are very poor. If I knew I wouldnt'n buy it! Unfortunately, I had no chance to check it and assumed Toshiba will keep the minimum standards in this matter.

> 1) Issues with Bluetooth - machine couldn't find other devices and there were problems with communications;

What Satellite C870-xxx do you have exactly?
From my own experience some models support BT and some don?t? so probably your unit does not supports BT or you did something wrong while BT configuration.

> 2) I'm very, very disappointed with the quality of sound. The speakers are very poor. If I knew I wouldnt'n buy it! Unfortunately, I had no chance to check it and assumed Toshiba will keep the minimum standards in this matter. In the past (some years ago)

From my own knowledge different models supports different hardware specifications. You can purchase notebook models with Harman-Kardon speakers which provide better sound quality. This unit seems to support standard speakers.
So it?s always a matter of price-value ratio and in my opinion this is not too bad.

Hello folks,

my name is lynn. I have been told on a different forum that my laptop does not have bluetooth on it. So, i went and bought a bluetooth adaptor made by targis. It is a usb device. I have it installed with all drivers. I have a bluetooth iblue 737a+ gps receiver; again, all drivers installed on my laptop for it. For some unknown reason, my computer sees the bluetooth adaptor, but refuses to see the bluetooth GPS receiver. I have had it up at Office depot all morning since i bought the adaptor there, but they could not figure out the problem either. The receiver can be seen when connected via a usb mini cable, but the program i wish to use it with, microsoft streets and trips, requires i use it with bluetooth and not a cable. The adaptor doesn?t see my Windows Mobile phone either. I know the GPS and phone are working properly and fully charged because they see each other and I can use my GPS program on my phone with no problem. . I am out of options and/or ideas. Can anyone suggest anything else i should try? I do have an account on msn and would be happy to voice or video chatg there if someone needs to explain something lengthy to me. Oh, and i am blind so use a screen reader to operate my windows 7 lalptop, but that should not have any bearing on figuring this confounded thign out!! :)

thanks, lynn w.

I've upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro on my desktop PC. However, my faithful Sony MDR-NC7 headphones no longer work. I've checked the Sony website and there is no software for them. Windows 8.1 does not see them plugged into my Dell sound bar or directly into the headphone jack on the PC>

Answer:Why don't my Sony wired headphones work with Win 8.1 PC?

Have you tried them on something else, like a cell phone to make sure the problem isn't in your headphones?
Standard 3.5mm jack headphones aren't "smart". They don't tell the PC that they are plugged into the PC, so there is no software for the headphones. If you plug the headphones into your PC, and your PC won't switch to them, then the speaker port on the PC is probably damaged.

I have just set up some new Bluetooth headphones too, I also connected them to other devices & afterwards I noticed that they wouldn't automatically connect to the pc. I noticed however that once paired if I wish to connect the 'phones to the pc I can turn off Bluetooth (under Bluetooth devices) & turn on again, this seems to connect the headphones.
Once paired you shouldn't need to pair them again to connect - in my case it just said paired & once I'd done the above it said connected. With mine too I had to restart the computer to finish pairing.

You should take it account that any obvious solutions have already been exhausted.




Go to control panel, navigate to hardware and sound click that once.
Find your device that is suppose to work, right click on the icon.
Left click on properties hit ok, now go to the hardware tab.
Screen shot what the status of the hardware is in right now.
Host the screenshots up with photobucket so that I can see it.

Once you do that we'll be able see anything it tells us so we can try to remove it.
Also what kind of headphones do you have and what is the brand name of it ?

I enjoy listening to Internet radio via my wireless headphones but I *think* I'd like to switch to Bluetooth, mainly because I want a smaller and lighter weight headset.

I've been doing some research but before I make a purchase, I'd like to be sure I got this right. Here's what I THINK I need to do:

1) I need a "dongle" that goes into my USB port. (I saw one called "IOGear Enhanced Data Rate Bluetooth USB Adapter" that got fairly good ratings on Amazon")

2) I need a pair of Bluetooth headphones. (my pick: Motorola S305 MOTOROKR Stereo Bluetooth Headphones)

3) Just follow the mfg instructions and set it all up.

HOWEVER -- does this work on every computer? (Mine is a new Dell Vostro 420 desktop running Windows XP pro). Does the computer itself have to be "bluetooth ready?" or anything special?

ALSO, while researching the topic, I saw a lot of discussion about "stacks" but I couldn't figure out what they were talking about. Is that something else I have to buy?

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated, even if it's just a link to a good BASIC (non-techie) page that explains all this.

Answer:?? -- bluetooth headphones and dongles??

You can use a USB BT dongle with virtually any XP or Vista computer. Just install the BT drivers from the disc that comes with the dongle, (may require a restart), then plug in the dongle..it will be auto detected. You can then configure the settings for computer name, security, connections, types of services for the BT eg. A2DP for streaming audio, HID for BT mice, OBEX for file transfers etc etc.

Then you can pair your BT headset with the computer. You'll need to enter a passkey for authorization; if the manufacturer has preset one for the device, it will be mentioned in the documentation. Set the headphones to auto-connect for future sessions so you don't need to go through the authorization stage each time.

Please note that XP doesn't handle BT all that well...in the last 3-4 years, I've tried numerous BT devices with XP, and all have given me some sort of issue or the other. The best luck I had was with a tiny Asus USB BT dongle and a Samsung BT headset....both worked nearly flawlessly. Vista is much better with regard to handling BT.

IMHO, BT is not a properly written/implemented protocol..never seems to work as it should with either computers, phones or headsets. Always needs some tweaking/fiddling to get it right. Or maybe I just have bad luck with BT

I hope your setup goes smoothly
Good luck

Answer:e530 bluetooth headphones

It happened to me something like that a couple of times (I use Bluetooth headset practically all the time).Only explanation I can think of is some kind of bug in the BIOS that leaves the Bluetooth "half working". It's a long shot but worth to try: 1. (sometimes not required) Go into Windows device manager. Remove all Bluetooth devices.2. Restart. Go into BIOS -> Security. Disable Bluetooth. Save changes and restart.3. Start Windows normally. Log in.4. Restart. Go into BIOS -> Security. Enable Bluetooth. Save changes and restart.5. Start Windows normally. Try if it works. Good luck.

Hi all, I'm losing my mind here! A couple of days ago no sound was coming out through my TV speakers. My Bluetooth headphones which I use with a dongle was the only way I could hear sound. So in a stunning fit of stupidity I disabled the headphones and the sound came back through the speakers.

I thought I was pretty clever till I went to enable the headphones again and they didn't show up. They're nowhere to be found. I right-clicked the volume icon, right-clicked the blank space to show disabled and disconnected devices, and they're still not there. The dongle is working correctly because the bluetooth mouse/keyboard are fine. The dongle interface says the headphones are connected, and I even hear that hsssssssss sound when I connect them, but sound still only comes through TV speakers.

Please help!

Morning all,

The audio jack on my tablet has stopped working which doesn't bother me too much because I've got some bluetooth headphones which I use to listen to my music on there.

However, I've got a huge flight coming up soon with my partner and there's loads of TV shows I have on it that we'd ideally want to watch and listen to together. If only my audio out worked I could just put a headphone splitter into it. But I'm trying to investigate whether you can get a bluetooth receiver like this:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/JUSTOP-BTR006-Bluetooth-Wireless-Universal/dp/B005NDDEVQ

So that receiver will pick up the audio, then pass the audio into something like this:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-BKF8...4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353051354&sr=1-4

Which I can then plug two sets of headphones into, and bingo, we can both watch and listen to the same thing on my tablet on the plane.

Would that work?

Or have I created a ludicrously complicated way of achieving this, when a much simpler multi-bluetooth audio out system exists?

In a nutshell, my question is this: What's the easiest way get audio to two sets of headphones from one tablet if the audio out plug doesn't work?
 

Answer:Multiple bluetooth headphones

I dont think your bluetooth audio adapter is able to drive 2 headphones at reasonable volume level. unless, you get a small headphone amplifier. but then you'll have 3 devices connected and I think it's not worth the hassle. the amplifier itself is cheap, look for something like fiio e3. I have it and it should cost less than 10 bucks.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/FiiO-E3-Hea...1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353073889&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-3-5m...2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353073843&sr=1-2

a single alkaline AAA battery could last for about 10h on my heavy usage. but im not sure if the bluetooth adapter could do the same.

bluetooth adapter -> fiio e3 -> 2way splitter

actually this way, it wouldnt be too much of a hassle. the 3.5mm jack of the bluetooth can be plugged directly into the fiio e3 as well as the 2way splitter.

2) If i click connect my headphones windows will freeze/crash/stop responding instead of connecting them.

3) Windows has created 2 pair of devices, one called headset and one called headphones as well as a device for recording which creates a weird echo sound in my headphones.

4) Disabling the recording device and the duplicate pair of headphones sometimes removes the weird echo sound but most of the time it just disables the sound completely.

5) If i disable the duplicate pair of headphones or if I disable the recording device, windows enables them back again without my permission, which causes the weird echo sound to come back again.

Answer:Serious bluetooth issues with headphones

You say this has been happening for YEAR'S? If its been going on for that long I would have to think its related to your motherboard. Might be time to get a new machine. Does it do this right after a O.S. install or re-install? Have you tried uncoupling all your Bluetooth devices and recoupling them? Have you updated your BIO'S and/or chipset? You could try a system file check, but if its been going on for that long I really think it's probably organic in nature.

Answer:Windows 10 Does not see Bluetooth headphones

Does your Bluetooth on your Dell pair with anything else?

What adapter is your Dell using?

I see you are using an older build, 1511, is there a reason you are not moving forward with 1607. There have been numerous fixes applied in the last year, with a cumulative update released Jan 26, 2017 to fix unspecified issues with Bluetooth. along with a lot of other things.

I have bluetooth headphones I used to use with my Pocket PC and don't remember ever having a problem.

I no longer use them with my Pocket PC but sometimes need to use them on my desktop PC now that I have Windows 7 that supports wireless headphones (I could never get them to work at all in XP).

Anyway even though they "work", I always need to fiddle with the buttons for 5-10 minutes and turn them on then off then on then off until they decide to eventually work. Tonight so far I'm at 10-15 on/off cycles and still nothing.

Obviously I have no idea how these things work and the manual is no help.

Does anyone know how to get them to connect the first time every time as was always the case in Windows CE?

It may actually just be that I don't know how to turn them on, it's the kind of thing that uses 2 buttons for 900 functions (press A for on, hold A 2 seconds for this, hold A 5 seconds for that, press B for this, hold B 2 seconds for this, press B 5 seconds for that).

They are the motorola S805 headphones.

Hmmm... could it be another computer with bluetooth fighting to connect with them? I think the only other computer with bluetooth would be my cell phone though I'd have to check the laptops to be sure.

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. In the Playback section there should be an incon for the headset and selecting that for the default playback device should give you headset sound.

So I have had this issue randomly after not using the Bluetooth headphones for a while. I could simply connect it the normal way and everything will connect and all that no issues at all. When I try to work with my music program, my sound has NO BASS. The sound is clear other than that. The thing about it is, searching forums and the like have yielded instructions to disable the Hands Free Telephony in the services tab of the headphones properties. When I attempt to do that, I get a Bluetooth Service Error saying "The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with" Uninstalling and reinstalling the bluetooth driver as well as the headphones has not fixed the problem. Neither has a restart. The headphones work fine with any other device. If possible I would not like to reinstall windows 7.

My first time connecting to a bluetooth devise on Windows 10 I ran into an issue where, even though I connected to a bluetooth device I still had to open my sound options to set my bluetooth device as default audio playback device (It was showing as headphones)

Answer:Why is my Bluetooth device being registered as headphones?

Bluetooth playback devices, such as speakers, headphones, headsets, etc. all show as headphones in Windows 10. The reason for this is that there is no bluetooth standard to identify the class of the item being connected, only what types of connectivity it supports. If it supports A2DP for stereo audio, it will identify it as headphones, since that is the most common. It could also be a Bluetooth connection to your car's audio system, headset, headphones, speakers, or whatever uses the audio format.
Windows does not always change the default playback device when turning on bluetooth or even when plugging something into a jack. I have to constantly tell it whether I want to use my laptop speakers or the speakers on my HDMI TV.

I recently bought wireless head phones which can connent to windows 10 computers without any issues in a couple of seconds. However my windows 7 elitebook has issues with connecting. It connects when u add it as a new device, but does not connent when u turn it on again after... Also it does not play sound, and can not be added as a playback device. I cant really find how to work this issue out....
