How to pair your Bluetooth device to a laptop
/ desktop
Step 1: Make sure your laptop / desktop has a Bluetooth
module
The first important step is to make sure the laptop / desktop has a Bluetooth module. Some
laptop / desktop might not come with this hardware. Check the manual of your laptop / desktop
on the availability of the Bluetooth module.
If your laptop / desktop does not come with a Bluetooth module, an external Bluetooth
module adapter can be purchased to help you enable Bluetooth function on your laptop / desktop.
Step 2: Put the device you want to connect into pairing mode
Make the device you want to connect to your laptop or desktop discoverable. You do this
by initiating pairing mode. The way to do this varies, depending on the device you want to use
(headphones, speakers, smartphone, etc.). Check the manual of your product for more
information on pairing mode.

For Bluetooth speakers or headphones, there will be a pairing button available that you
will need to press and hold for several seconds to activate pairing mode on Bluetooth
speakers or headphones.

If it’s the very first time you are using your speakers or headphones, it’s highly likely that
they will automatically go into pairing mode when you turn them on.

However, remember that the second and consecutive times you pair a device, pairing
mode might differ with the first time you’ve paired it with a device when you
unboxed it:
E.g. The MDR-1000X immediately goes into pairing mode when using it for the first
time; the second time you want to pair these headphones you will have to press and hold
the pairing mode button for 7 seconds.

Ensure your device is not already connected to a previous device: Bluetooth devices often
automatically connect with previously paired devices when they are nearby and
Bluetooth is enabled.

putting them in pairing mode by pressing the ON button for 7 seconds.
