Pros and benefits of a Bluetooth headset
- Most modern headphones have a “hands free” technology. You can walk around the room, do and go about your business and at the same time easily control the switching of songs, pause, rewind. using special buttons on the device.
- All devices are adapted for any operating system, be it Windows 7, 8, 10, XP or even iOS. You can safely connect them not only to a PC, but also to smartphones or tablets.
- How many wired headphones I had and all had the problem of breaking one wiring at the base. As a result, only one part works. Wireless devices do not have this. since the wires are completely absent.
If there are problems with audio playback. first of all, check that the sound is set to full. To do this, click on the speaker in the lower right corner and see that the sound level on your headphones is above zero.
- If after that there is no sound, then most likely the problem is in the drivers. We also go to the device manager and try to update the driver.
- Next, a window with the installation will pop up or the system will inform you that the software does not need to be updated. Then it is worth downloading drivers to the mainland or an external adapter from the official website. For an external medium, enter the name of the device into any search engine on the Internet.
- For the internal module, everything is much more complicated. If you have a disk from the motherboard with original drivers, then install the software from there. Otherwise, you will have to search for the name of the motherboard model manually. We poke “Start” and prescribe “CMD”. We start the command line. We register this command:
wmic baseboard get product, Manufacturer, version, serialnumber
- A message will appear with complete information about the motherboard model. We are interested in the line under “Product”. We open a browser and enter this combination of letters and numbers into Yandex or Google. A link to the official site with this motherboard will open, where you can download firewood. Then we just install them.
Solution of problems
No bluetooth in task manager
- Perhaps you just have the drivers for the adapter installed. In the same place, in the device manager, go to the “Other devices” tab. Perhaps “Unknown device”. and will be our Bluetooth.
- Click on it twice and in the “Driver” tab, click “Update”. If the drivers are not updated from the Windows server, then you will need to look for drivers from the motherboard, since the Bluetooth adapter is sewn there. You can also download the driver pack from https://drp.su/ru/foradmin. Scroll down a little to the “Driverpacks” section and download both packs.
- If there is nothing at all in other devices, but you gut feel that you have Bluetooth. Maybe it is disabled in the BIOS. When rebooting, hold down one of the keys: Del, F2, F3 (the button depends on the version and type of BIOS, so you need to try all the buttons).
- As soon as you appear at the very core of your PC, go to the device tab. If you find Bluetooth, just turn it on by putting it in the “Enabled” mode.
- To install, simply insert the device into an available USB port.
- Next, the drivers should be downloaded automatically.
- If this did not happen, then go to the task manager in the “Other devices” tab.
- There will be a new apparatus. Our task is to update the drivers. Sometimes a disc comes with the device, then it is worth making an installation from it or downloading firewood from the official website.
If you have a full-fledged headset with a microphone like mine (from Bluedio), then you can chat on Skype and walk around the house with headphones. This is quite convenient, although before that you need to make some manipulations with the settings in Skype.
- Launch Skype.
- Let’s go to the settings. Skype versions are constantly updated, and this button opens differently in different versions of the program. so just search for the buttons.
- We go to the section “Sound and video”. Our Bluetooth device should be in the “microphone” section. If there is “Default communication device”, then just click on this inscription and select your headset.
Checking the “Blue Tooth”
And so, the lack of a built-in Bluetooth module may become a small problem. Unfortunately, not even all laptops have this transmitter, let alone desktop computers. Now we will check if we have Bluetooth or not.
- Simultaneously hold down the Windows button and R. The command execution window will come out. We enter such a line “devmgmt.msc” press “OK” or Enter.
- We look at the device manager. It is necessary to find any mention of Bluetooth that will say that this technology is present in your computer.
- Double click on the adapter device. A window will pop up where it will be written that the device is working normally.
If the device is not detected, but you know that it is there, then go to the troubleshooting chapter in the same article.
Is it possible to connect wireless headphones to laptop / PC?
If with smart devices (smartphones and tablets), where there is built-in Bluetooth, everything is more or less clear, then with a PC the situation is less obvious. Whether wireless headphones can be connected to a computer depends on whether the PC has a built-in wireless module. Laptops, even relatively old ones, have Bluetooth built in. In this case, the connection will not cause problems.
Stationary computers do not have this module by default. To add the ability to sync your PC with headphones, you need to purchase a special Bluetooth accessory. A wireless adapter is a small device for plugging into a USB port. It can also be built into another device, for example, into a USB flash drive.

After the headphones have been connected to the connectors on the sound card of the computer, most often, the sound is already played in them and no additional settings need to be made.
However, sometimes there is no sound. Here we will dwell on this in more detail.
- The first thing you need to do is test the functionality of your headset. Try to connect them with another device in the house: with a player, with a TV, a stereo system, etc.
- Check if the drivers are installed for the sound card on your PC. If you have sound in the speakers, then everything is in order with the drivers. If not, go to the device manager first (to do this, open the control panel, and type “manager” into the search bar, see the screenshot below).
- Pay attention to the lines “Audio outputs and audio inputs”, as well as to “sound devices”. there should not be any red crosses or exclamation marks. If they are, reinstall the drivers.

- It is also worth going to the control panel in the “sound” tab.
- Here you can see how the volume settings are set. If the sound settings are lowered to the minimum, turn them up.
- Also, by the running sound sliders (shown in green in the screenshot below), you can conclude whether sound is played at all on the PC. As a rule, if everything is good, the strip will constantly change in height.

If you still do not have sound after the settings made, I recommend that you read the article about eliminating the cause of the lack of sound on the computer.
How to connect headphones and a microphone to a computer: understanding the connectors
All modern computers, almost always, are equipped with a sound card: either it is built into the motherboard, or it is a separate board. The only important thing is that on the socket of your PC (if it has a sound card) there should be several connectors for connecting a headphone and a microphone. For the former, green markings are usually used, for the latter, pink. Sometimes the name “line-out” is used. Often above the connectors, in addition to color, there are also thematic pictures that will definitely help you navigate.
By the way, on computer headphones, the connectors are also marked in green and pink (this is usually the case, but if you take a headset for a player, there are no marks there). But computer ones, among other things, have a long and high-quality wire that last much longer, well, they are more convenient for prolonged listening.
Then it remains only to connect a couple of connectors: green with green (or a green connector with a line-out on the system unit, plus pink and pink) and you can proceed to a more detailed software configuration of the device.
By the way, on laptops, headphones are connected in the same way. Usually, the connectors are brought out to the left, or from the side that looks at you (in front, sometimes called). Often, many are frightened by excessive rigidity: just for some reason on laptops, the connectors are tighter and some think that they are non-standard and cannot connect headphones to this.
In fact, everything is just as easy to connect.
Combined connectors (also called headset connectors) for connecting a headset with a microphone began to appear in new laptop models. In appearance, it practically does not differ from the familiar pink and green connectors, except in color. it is usually not marked in any way (just black or gray, to match the color of the case). A special icon is drawn next to such a connector (as in the picture below).

The simplest and most common are wired headphones. They are connected via a cable to the corresponding connectors on a computer or laptop. There may actually be several options here. For example, if you have a headset with one wire, and your computer has 2 inputs (pink and green), then you need to purchase a special adapter. Thanks to him, both speakers and a microphone will work in your headphones. The opposite situation (when the headphones have two plugs, and on the laptop only one input) is solved by another adapter.
In all other situations, when the number of plugs is the same, simply insert them into the correct jacks. On a laptop, as a rule, the microphone and headphone jacks are located on the side panel. Green is the headphones, pink is the microphone. Additionally, next to the entrance there is a small image for recognition.
