Start reading and figure out what you will learn!
This section will explain the basic method to connect Sony earphones. I have concluded 9 steps for you.
Before connecting it to iPhone, ensure the headphones have Bluetooth capabilities. Most modern Sony earphones come with Bluetooth functionality, but verifying this from the product specifications or the user manual is essential.
Generally, merchants will fully charge it before shipping it to the customer. However, it is best to check before use and ensure that it is fully charged to ensure that it lasts as long as possible and performs as well as it should.
Headsets usually have two indicator lights, red/yellow to indicate that it is not yet fully charged and green/blue to indicate that it is fully charged so you can start using it.
If your Sony earphones have Bluetooth functionality, you must first put them into pairing mode. Get help from the user manual for a specific model to learn how to do this. Typically, it involves holding down a specific button or combination of buttons until an LED light flashes or a pairing indicator is activated.
Go to your mobile phone’s “Settings” tool and ensure Bluetooth is turned on.
You can also enter the Control Center by swiping down from the top-right corner on newer iPhones ( X and later) or swiping up from the bottom on older iPhones ( 8 and earlier) and tapping the Bluetooth icon to enable it.
Your device will now search for nearby Bluetooth devices in pairing mode. You can notice the name of your Sony earphones on the list and tap on their name to initiate the pairing process. The name might be something like “WH-1000XM4” or “WF-1000XM3,” depending on the model.
Depending on your Sony earphone model, you might be prompted to enter a PIN or confirm a code on your phone to complete the pairing process. Follow any on-screen instructions if necessary.
Once the pairing is successful, your Sony earphones should be connected to your iPhone. You should see a Bluetooth icon in the status bar, and the name of your headsets should be listed under “My Devices” in the Bluetooth settings.
To ensure the pairing was successful, play some audio, such as music or a YouTube video, and listen for the sound to come through your Sony earphones. As usual, you can adjust the volume and playback controls directly from your iPhone.
Once you’ve successfully paired Sony earphones with your iPhone, they should automatically reconnect whenever both devices have Bluetooth enabled and are within range. This allows you to enjoy wireless audio without repeating the pairing process every time.
It is time to get an example!
I will show you the way to connect Sony MDR-XB950BT next.
Now I will demonstrate all the detailed instructions to connect MDR-XB950BT so you can get a reference when you connect.
You should press and hold the POWER button for about 2 seconds with the headphone turned off when you first pair the earbud with a device after purchasing it or initializing the headset. It will automatically enter pairing mode.
Press the power button for about 7 seconds; pairing a second or subsequent device is because the headset has pairing information for other devices.
Make sure the light flashes blue and red alternately when you release the button.
Unlock your iPhone. Click “Settings” and then touch “Bluetooth” to enable it.
If you use headphones or speakers, you can connect them by turning on Bluetooth on your device. If there is no Bluetooth connection between the headset or speaker and another paired device, check the Bluetooth settings on those devices to see if the device is currently connected.
First, to put your Sony earphones into Bluetooth pairing mode, ensure your headphones are charged. Then, press and hold the power button for about 7 seconds until the LED light blinks. Next, open your phone’s Bluetooth settings and look for “Wear Detection” or “NC.” Once you see it, select it, and your earbuds should be in pairing mode!
Yes, you can pair the headset with any compatible device that has a Bluetooth connection. The pairing method depends on your phone, computer, or tablet’s Bluetooth settings. Still, most Bluetooth headset setups for Android and iOS devices are similar to the abovementioned methods.
While older ones used to have a jack on the bottom of the device next to the charging cable port, newer models like the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 no longer have this option. If you want to use wired ones with your device, buy a Lightning to Headphone Adapter from Amazon. You can then plug the Lightning end of the cable into your phone’s Lightning port and the headphone jack into the other end.
Most Bluetooth devices are only listed as available on the Bluetooth menu if your device recognizes them. You still need to go into the Bluetooth options menu and connect the headphones by tapping them in the list of Bluetooth devices.
β Touch the “Settings” app on the iPhone Home screen.
β Select the Bluetooth option.
β Click I to the right of the Bluetooth device to cancel the pairing.
β Select the Forget this device option.
β Tap “Forget Device” to confirm.
