Help with connecting to Bluetooth headphones

Q: Help with connecting to Bluetooth headphones

Hi there, I'm having problems connecting to my bluetooth headphones. My computer will pair with them and connect the first time no problem, but afterwards it won't recognize that it's available to Connect (it won't connect automatically and it won't show a "Connect" button). The only way to get it to work is to Remove Device, adn re-pair it, which is very annoying. Any help would be appreciated! I've tried re-intalling the drivers with no luck, and checking for Windows updates but I'm all up to date. I have an Aspire TC-603 desktop. Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I'm trying to connect my arctic p311 wireless bluetooth headphones to my 64 bit windows 7 laptop. I have this bluetooth usb adapter (Amazon.com: 2.0 USB Bluetooth Wireless Adapter for HP, Gateway, eMachine, Dell or ANY Laptop/PC Running Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 200, XP, Vista & WINDOWS 7!!!: Computers & Accessories) which according to one amazon review works with my exact pair of headphones. However when I put the headphones in pairing mode absolutely nothing happens on the windows side of things. Any ideas/suggestions/help would be really appreciated.

Other details:
-the bluetooth usb adapter didn't come with a disc/manual, it was all alone
-the first time I plugged it in windows installed some drivers but nothing that seemed to be related to audio
-this program (MotioninJoy | Playstation 3|Xbox 360|Dualshock 3|Sixaxis|Game|Driver|) which allows for wireless ps3 controller connectivity via bluetooth installed a driver and so I am able to use my controller, wirelessly. So I know the adapter isn't completely broken

Thanks for your time

I'm trying to get my bluetooth headphones to work, and I'm having the most common "lack of driver" problem, but I can't find where to download the right driver :/I found other solutions here but I just links me to the generic "find your driver software!" page and doesn't tell me which one I need, which is not helpful and just stressing me out. Can someone just link me to the right driver and tell me how to get it to work? Literally nothing I can find anywhere is helpful, and I spent 30$ on the **bleep** headphones so I didn't have to deal with a wire knocking my stuff off my desk.Thanks or no thanks in advance!

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!

I bought some inexpensive bluetooth headphones so I can listen to music on Spotify or Pandora while on my porch reading.  They worked fine.  I didn't use them for maybe a month, and saw they no longer showed up as a bluetooth device.  I reconnected them.  It indicates that the headphones are connected: computer to bluetooth to headphones, but didn't work.  I reset the headphones and tried again.  Still don't work.  I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a new set.  Re-installed the headphones.  Same thing: indicated they are properly connected, drivers are installed, etc.  Still don't work.  I'm lost.  Any ideas?

Hello, I bought new probook 4 months ago and just now I got bluetooth headphones. Instantly I got a problem. I turn on headphones and my pc doesn't find them. All my drivers are updated, I tried troubleshooting, restarting bluetooth options, deleting password from "log on" tab on "bluetooth support service" (this worked 1st time I did it but later, when I tried to connect it didn't work). Does someone know the problem and can offer me some solution?

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?
 

A: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.

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.

If this is any help if I point my mouse to the speaker icon in the system tray is says Bluetooth Audio Renderer so the computer is recognizing the headphones but there's still no sound.

A:How do you use bluetooth headphones in Windows 7?

Should I just throw out this worthless garbage and buy smartly designed bluetooth headphones that don't require you to study an endless list of button combinations for simple actions like on and off?

On the other hand they worked well with my Pocket PC, so either I don't remember the proper key combination for "on" or it's Windows 7 that has a problem using bluetooth headphones.

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.

A:?? -- 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

I have Bluetooth headphones that I have been using with my desktop Win7 machine successfully for about one year. Now all the sudden without my having changed anything, I get no sound out of them.

When I turn them on, Windows recognizes them and shows that they are connected, but when I play audio, the sound comes out of my desk speakers and not the headphones.

The headphones work correctly with my laptop.

Please advise how to troubleshoot. Thank you.

A:Bluetooth headphones: no sound

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.

I have a Z50-75 notebook with the following driver installed for my BT reciever:  When I have a Microsoft Designer Desktop and a Rapoo H6080 headset connected at the same time, the sound stream is cracking, which is annoying to say the least. How many BT connections can the Realtek reciever handle correctly? Or is interference the issue here? I'd imagine 2 input devices and a headset/headphone cannot produce that large a bandwidth (even with some packets colliding) to cause this much trouble.
