How do Bluetooth Headsets work?

Q: How do Bluetooth Headsets work?

I'm trying to connect my Bluetooth headset to a Windows 7 PC so that I can receive and make Skype calls. The headset seems to have successfully paired with and connected with the PC, but I can't get anything to play through it.
How do I check what is going wrong?
If I look in Devices and Printers, I can see the headset there.
If I right click on it and select Properties, and then look in the Services tab, it says that the headset is enabled for Audio Sink, Handsfree Telephony and Headset.
If I look under the Hardware tab, I see Bluetooth AV, Bluetooth hands-free and Bluetooth Headset.
If I look in the Sound control panel, under the Playback tab, the only device I see is Speakers. Should I see the headset here, if it's connected properly?
If I look in Sounds under the Recording tab I see Microphone (default device), Line in (currently unavailable) and Stereo Mix (currently unavailable). Is this correct, or should I see the headset here too?
How do I tell Skype to use the headset and not the speakers or the built in microphone? If I plug in a wired headset, it automatically switches off the built in speakers and microphone, and any phone calls that I then make will use the headset - why doesn't this happen with the Bluetooth device?

How do I debug all this stuff? How do I see how the headset is connected? How do I see what profile the sound applications (Skype, Lync, Media Player etc.) are using? How do I see what messages the answer button on the headset is sending?

I just need to understand this stuff better so I can have a chance of getting it all working...

Thanks - Rowan

I have kind of an amusing problem. I rescued an exotic bird that crashed into the glass of my workplace, and he has been part of the family for about 3 years. He loves to sit on my shoulder while I work on my computer. Recently he has taken a dislike to the wire coming from my headphone and microphones sets ( on 3rd pair currently). I have therefore decided to look into a set without wires. I do not know the difference between the two Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and of course sound quality is bottom line. I am looking for a pair around the $200.00 Mark give or take.

This article http://mikebeauchamp.com/misc/sennheiser-hd-555-to-hd-595-mod/ says that the $ 150.00 difference between these headphones is the maker just put a piece of foam in them to cripple the exact same innards. He further proves a point with digital cameras, The software is all identical just crippled to make a lower cost unit.

So I need some advice I don;t want to pay $150 for some foam , I just want a good headset with a microphone, To listen to videos and music I am not a gamer.

A:Solved: Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Headsets.

When I was on the search for my wireless headset (mainly to use for voice chats and listening to music), I started to search on Amazon.com. From there, I checked the reviews, prices, etc. I wanted comfort as much as good quality. I ended up purchasing a Plantronics headset. Love it so far. My fiancee uses a Sony and he loves his too.
Try looking through these and see what you think: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias=aps&field-keywords=wireless+headset

I'm looking to purchase a multifunction Bluetooth stereo headset with a microphone. I'd like to use one device to listen to music and online broadcasts as well as use interactive tutorial programs and the online telephonic services, e.g., Yahoo Messenger. I've been using a wired stereo headset and a separate wired mic with success but too much wired hassle. Any suggestions for such a Bluetooth product? I've seen the Kensington Bluetooth Stereo Headphones with microphone, but nothing descriptive enough to assure me it will function as I wish on my Toshiba Tecra 5-M5332.

Thanks...Larry

I must say I'm a bit surprised that I can't seem to find a definitive answer as I would have thought they'd be plenty of people in my position.

I simply want to connect two bluetooth headsets (would they have to be identical?) to my laptop at the same time so that my wife and I can either listen to music or watch movies together.

I've seen a couple of answers on the web stating the Bluesoleil software will do it but they might be just saying that get me to buy the software. There also seems to be a device that you plug into the audio port (3.5mm) although not popular and that's not using the onboard Bluetooth chip.

Obviously this can be done using wired headsets but I just want wireless.

Thanks very much and hope you can help.

I always thought of Bluetooth as such a simple act of connecting as speaker wire is to a speaker, when your friends thought "Aren't you afraid of electrocution?"

Well at the moment, I would welcome a good life ending jolt, just to complain to my maker that Windows and Bluetooth are not working as "A TEAM"

I recently obtained a pair of headphones that work great as a hands free solution to driving while listening to music and then taking a call, all controlled by a few buttons on the right earpiece. Unfortunately you have to leave one ear off when passing a cop, otherwise it looks like you have your parents headphones hooked up to a boombox, and you will get pulled over.

So I thought, well they have such great fidelity for the price, like getting Bose for $20 American, I'll just pair it with my Sony Vaio Win 7 64 laptop, barely 2 yrs old.

Well it can pair with the laptop, bur the fun ends there. All the wonderful troubleshooting devices on Windows 7 (that you know have a 1% chance of solving the issue) can't seem to connect. Finally, when Windows gives up, it directs you to Broadcomm or whomever lay claim to the ******* child known as Bluetooth.

Yes I tried all the driver suggestions.

You know what the big Broadcomm fix for Windows 7 does? - Stops after you've downloaded it, and start installing it, saying "an OLD version of Bluetooth has been found, you must remove it before attempting to install this update"

Apparently, I'm not alone. So let's ripoff bluetooth! Come on, any of you internet/computer savvy geeks, with an entrepreneurial spirit, want to make our own wireless system? That are "compatible" with bluetooth? - Give it another name, preferably not a reference to a color, like that of some berry or a rotten tooth. Whyerlessound? There you go.
Compatible with all bluetooth and wifi devices. No more searching for drivers on unfriendly corporate sites, no more "You ain't buying? Move along!" feeling from the Government Media Telecom Complex.

Yesterday, my G933's mic stopped working. Windows recognizes the device, but it can't transmit any sounds (on the bar in the recording tab), Skype, Discord, or anything. I've tried using another USB headset and had the same problem. Then I tried an old G230 with 3.5mm cables and the mic worked. However, the person I'm talking to on Skype says my mic keeps cutting out and they can hear sounds coming from my headset. (Might be a whole other problem. It seems like it'll mute every time I'm playing something loud on my computer.)

I built this computer about 2 months ago. Using an Asus Maximus 9 Hero. I've tried updating the audio driver and plugging in the headset onto other USB ports.

If anybody has any suggestions, I will greatly appreciate it.

Earlier today I emerged from a bathroom break to find my headphones in the middle of the floor with the plug bent thanks to my dog. Now the strangest thing has happened: My speakers won't work. I know they're on; when I turn them up I can hear a hiss, but there's no other audio. There's no evidence to suggest my dog got to them and it's almost impossible for him to reach. What has happened? The speaker plug is in the computer rock solid. The only remote possibility I can think of is that the computer somehow didn't realize the headphones have left the audio jack, but looking around I have seen nothing to suggest that the headphones are still registering.

Does anybody know what has happened?

UPDATE: I got the headsets fixed. It seems my theory might be correct, as the PC does not notify me anymore when I plug them in or remove them.

A:My headsets are broken, so my speakers don't work?

Were the headphones plugged into the computer when the dog got to them? If so, my thought is that the thing the headphone plugs into may be damaged.

What is the make and model of the computer?

Thank you guys for hearing me out, this problem has been bugging me for a while. I have a Turtle Beach Earforce Z11 Headset for PC, which connects through jacks as opposed to USB. There is a splitter for the primary plug, which splits the options into both a headphone and microphone. On this HP, however there are two jack options in the front : headphone and one that shows both a microphone and a headphone.  Upon connecting the plug in the headphone jack, I'm able to hear everything. Sound is perfect and I couldn't be happier, however it fails to recognize the mic...because it isn't in a microphone slot. Once I connected the plug into the combined audio/mic jack, I get nothing. I hear a tiny bit of static as it is inserted and suddenly my sound option on the taskbar appears with a little red circle and an "x", which tells me that "No speakers or headphones are plugged in". However on skype, I am told that my microphone is working just fine. The problem with that is, my actual microphone isn't picking up sound, but the headphones are picking up sound. I'm currently speaking into my headphones (which are plugged into the mic/audio jack) and I was told that I they could hear me, but I sounded muffled. The only other piece of relevant information is that a headset I had that worked through USB had no problems whatsoever. Thank you for the help.

Welcome to sevenforums, Vorbias.

Have you checked the volume control to ensure that when the headphones are plugged in it is set to a high volume? I had the same issue and making the volume control visible on the taskbar and then opening the "mixer" when I plugged in the headset and setting the volume up fixed it.

Acer laptops dont always come with the bluetooth modules installed, there sometimes sold as 'Bluetooth Ready' meaning you can buy an additional module for it. If you have a look for the exact model number underneath, I'll have a look about for you to see if it comes with one already installed.

My daughter recently gave me her old Palm Treo 650 cellphone. Apparently it is too old to "speak" (sync) with Windows 7 64 bit using their software but it can be done using bluetooth. The phone is bluetooth enabled and has an infared port, but my computer is lacking -- something -- to make the connection...what do I need? a USB dongle-thing? Something else?
thanks
 

A:What do I need for bluetooth to work?

Bluetooth is just a connection method. If it can't sync with Windows 7 64-bit using a USB sync cable, that isn't fixed by syncing with Bluetooth. You still need the Palm Desktop software or (maybe?) Outlook (not Windows Mail). If you want to attempt to connect the phone to the computer with Bluetooth, you need a Bluetooth USB dongle for your computer. I've never had much luck with Bluetooth data connections. Given the age of the device, the challenges are magnified.

Hi. I just registered on forum and sorry about my poor english. Actually i visit this forum for years and i'm thankful for many times i getting help on it. Now why i registered. First, recently i purchased ACER AO722 C68bb (i believe this version is for eastern markets), with preinstalled Windows7 starter. Bluetooth connectivity has work.On back is written that device has installed Atheros bluetooth module AR5BBU22. Shortly after purchasing, i installed Windows 7 Home premium x64. Everything was fine, since i decided to connect my netbook with my phone by bluetooth connection. Almost one week after i couldn't manage to do that. I will insert 3 pictures to explain (i hope) where is problem. As you can see on first picture ''allow device to connect'' is greyed out. I've searched on different forums, including this one, without solving. I believe that I will find solution here. Drivers are ok (i believe). System did "see" bluetooth network, but is not connected because neither my phone "sees" netbook, or other way around. I manage to establish bluetooth connection with usb dongle, but that doesn't makes me happy. If you can, please help me !

A:Bluetooth won't work

Hello and welcome.
Well, your English was not that bad. I could still follow you basically.

Since you were able to connect the phone to the USB dongle, (correct?) then that means everything should be alright with the phone.

I believe the first thing you may need to do is click "Add a Device" to let them detect & identify each other. Once there is a profile created, then the next time you want to connect maybe click "Allow a Device to Connect." Try that and see if it works.

I've been trying to pair an Apple Wireless Keyboard with my laptop so I can type from a distance. I bought it to work with the iPhone, but also wanted to use it with my laptop to increase functionality.

I couldn't get the bluetooth driver to work on this computer through the software because it kept saying that the bluetooth device wasn't ready and wouldn't turn on. I tried to download the latest driver from MSi's website when I realized that the driver never did install properly!

I tried to install it once and it froze so I closed out of the installer. This led to it being installed anyway, but not fully. I tried to uninstall and run the installer again, but it froze and I left it open the past few days but it's still stuck and probably will remain stuck.

The driver is called "Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba v6.40.01".

I've had this problem for quite a while now, and it's starting to drive me crazy!
 
My bluetooth devices can't connect to my laptop because it appears as though they can't find it at all. The device (bluetooth speakers) was already added and used to work with my laptop and it still works with my phone or other computers without any trouble, but my laptop's bluetooth just isn't working. I can't delete it from my added devices to try and re-add it. 
 
Worst of all: I can't open Bluetooth settings at all! Not using Control Panel, not using the bluetooth icon, not using search, just not at all. I click it and nothing happens. 
So, I've tried to look it up in Services.msc to see if it might be disabled, but it says it should be running. In msconfig, it says the Bluetooth service is stopped, however. 
 
Either way, I'd love to use my bluetooth devices with my laptop again, so if anyone knows how to fix this, that would be awesome!

I recently just bought a msi z87 mpower Intel motherboard and it came with a blue tooth adapter. now for some reason I can not enable the device. there is no wireless tab under the change pc settings in pc settings however it is listed under device manager. it says every thing is correct with the driver and when I go to control panel and go to devices and printers the Bluetooth device is not there. I even did a fresh install of windows 8. not sure how to fix this one.

Well lets begin first steps first.....making windows reconise the bluetooth usb stick.
i have a bluetooth stick connected and windows successfully reconised it and added it as device.
however when i go to the menu "add device" in windows, i see no bluetooth device whatsoever popup.

as soon as i have this working, i want to use the bluetooth headset for teamspeak.

Hi,
I have a wireless speaker called the OONTZ made by Cambridge. It will work by Bluetooth and does work fine from my Bluetooth Cowon Mp3 player.

But when I try to run it from my Dell INSPIRON 5520 I can not seem to get any sound out. The 5520 does see my device and I see it in my device .

I have been trying for the last few days to figure it out but w/o any luck? My 5520 has something called Stage and I tried that but again it will not show the speaker?

Sorry I do not know enough at this time to give and more details. Please get myself on the right track if possible

A:Getting Bluetooth to work, win 7 64 bit. No sound out!

Hey jjr, As you mentioned that both device are discovering each other. Have you tried pairing them? Once a bluetooth device is discovered, it needs to be paired for creating FTP file sharing or playing music. Try that and let us know.

Hi all!

I have bought a HP 6730b notebook (type: HP KU216ET), it has got built-in Bluetooth. I have installed 32bit Windows 7, but the bluetooth doesn't work. I cannot find any driver to make that working good..

HP Compaq 6730b Notebook PC*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center - here is a driver for XP, but when I install, it said that I have to turn on Bluetooth... I don't know what to do...

I don't know what's the type of the built-in Bluetooth, maybe broadcom, I tried this driver: Broadcom.com - Bluetooth Software Download

but there's the same message while install: Turn on Bluetooth...

What can I do? I have a bluetooth mouse, so I need to make bluetooth working good...

Thx a lot!

UPDATE: PROBLEM SOLVED

A:Bluetooth doesn't work

Look in "Services" and see if it's enabled.
Type services.msc in the start search box, then click on the gear icon.

I am very inexperienced.  After upgrading to windows 10 on Friday (last day)  I now see on the notifications that under COMPATIBILITY  it lists Qualcomm Bluetooth Suite  as unavailable (so I assume my bluetooth will not work).   I cannot refind an earlier message I read  with a list of Acer machines that qualified (mine did)   for some kind of  update?   I seem to remember that somewhere it said to  " update Bios"  first before upgrade to windows 10....>  but windows 10 compatibility said nothing about my bluetooth and  isn't updating the BIOS something that Acer should on its own if it is necessary?  I find this scary and have no idea what or even how to do a BIOS update if it is necessary?  Pleeeeez help! ( Oh... one last thing if important... I log in to my computer with windows account (not ACER >  I couldn't figure out the whole apps thing   and my son figured out how to get an older style start page when I had the 8.1 )   I hope someone here can give me very specific instructions on how to get my bluetooth back working?  Thank you ever so much for any help

A:Bluetooth does not work on XC-603 desktop after wi...

Hi, Go to http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers and input your model. Be sure you have XC-603 and not XC-603G (there are two models out there). Then you can download the BIOS files and also in the driver section you can download the bluetooth file and see if it will help you. There is nothing dangerous to upgrade your BIOS. Unless you pull the computer from the wall socket during the upgrade process If you have XC-603 (not XC-603G) you can download the BIOS and the bluetooth driver below: BluetoothAtherosBluetooth Driver10.0.1.059.1 MB2015/07/28DownloadBIOSAcerChange Setup default setting to meet Non-Windows BIOS request.P11.B4L3.1 MB2015/11/11Download
