How do I connect AirPods to my Windows computer or laptop?
Apple has created some really cool and simple AirPods headphones that can be connected to other Apple devices without any hassle in seconds. If you have these headphones, you’ve probably seen how easy it is to connect to iPhone. The newest on the market are AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro. But today I want to tell you not about the headphones themselves, but how to connect them to a computer or laptop running Windows 10, Windows 8, or Windows 7. Also, let’s see if these headphones can be used as a helmet.
The process of connecting AirPods to Windows is not complicated, but not as straightforward as it is for iOS and Mac OS devices. I sometimes use my AirPods with a Windows 10 laptop. They are of course connected via Bluetooth. Therefore, if you don’t have a laptop (where Bluetooth is usually already built in), but a stationary computer, you need a Bluetooth adapter to connect Apple wireless headphones.
Connecting AirPods to a Laptop or Windows Computer
If your laptop or computer does not have Bluetooth or it does not work, you will not be able to connect the AirPods. Therefore:
In the case of a laptop, where the Bluetooth module is usually built-in, you just need to install the drivers. In Windows 10, this shouldn’t be a problem, as the drivers are usually installed automatically. It doesn’t matter what type of Windows you have. Check if there is a Bluetooth icon in the status bar. If so, then everything is fine, you can connect Airpods.
You can also see if there is a corresponding module in the device manager. If Bluetooth cannot be found, try installing the drivers. Download them from the website of the laptop manufacturer for your model.
In the case of a PC, you will likely need to select and purchase a Bluetooth adapter. Then you need to install and configure it.
If the computer is equipped with Bluetooth (status bar icon, settings section, etc.), you can proceed to connect Airpods.
Connecting AirPods to Windows 10
Set up the Airpods as a microphone or as a headset
In this regard, everything is the same as with other bluetooth headphones. In Windows 10, I was unable to configure the AirPods to be able to listen to good quality music (stereo) and the microphone was working.
In the audio options, you can select the input and output device. If you select “Headphone AirPods”, the Airpods will work in headphone mode.
If you have connected AirPods to communicate via Skype, you can make the settings directly in the program settings. Choose these headphones as microphone and speakers.
But then the system will not play any sounds through the headphones. You must reset all settings. You may be able to configure it differently. You can share with us in the comments.
In general, in this regard, everything is far from ideal. If you just listen to music, watch movies, etc. then yes everything is working fine. But to adjust the microphone you have to tinker. And even then, it is not a fact that everything will work out.
Connecting and setting up AirPods on a Windows 7 computer
Since Windows 7 is also installed on my laptop next door, I decided to try connecting AirPods. Since there are problems with connecting these new devices.
I did everything like in Windows 10. Just connect a new device. Don’t forget to activate pairing mode on the headset. With a separate button on the housing.
