Technically, you can use your phone as a speaker already! With some apps that have built-in voice recording or playback features, you can simply upload the file onto your computer or device for listening later.
But what if we told you there’s an easier way? A more stealthy way to do it? And what if I told you that this easy method does not require any apps or software?
That is why in this article, we are going to talk about how to use bluetooth headphones with your smartphone. We will go over all of the different types of headphone brands, along with how to connect them to your device.
Once connected, you will be able to easily stream music from your device to the earbuds. You will also be able to control various functions such as volume, play/pause, and call handling.
Find a place where you won’t be overheard
Finding a pair of bluetooth headphones can sometimes feel like an uphill battle! The number one tip we will tell you is to make sure you are in a quiet area where you won’t be heard or disturbed by what you are listening to.
Most people start using headphones after buying themselves their first mobile phone, so some degree of bluetooth capability is normal. But if you want perfect sound quality, it’s important to know how to use your headphone properly!
There are two main things that affect audio quality when using headphones. First, earphone volume- these need to be strong enough for you to hear clearly without interference. Second, balance- this refers to whether there is more gain coming from one side of the stereo image than the other.
If you have a smartphone with built-in speakers, then these are already adjustable, but for external headphones it’s worth experimenting to find a comfortable level. You may also need to invest in a splitter cable so you can continue listening to music while talking on another device.
Make sure your friends aren’t trying to talk to you
Even though most people these days have their phone with them at all times, that doesn’t mean they always use it.
If someone calls you or sends you a message while you’re listening to music, there’s no headphone jack for you to put the device onto.
You’ll need to take off your headphones either completely or use one earbud only so you can respond without interrupting what you were listening to.
Find a quiet time
Finding a good place to use your new headphones depends mostly on how you plan to use them and what kind of music you want to listen to. If you are listening to soft, mellow songs, then using your bedroom is a great space.
If instead you have some light music or no music at all, then outside, in a park or somewhere with lots of activity can work well. Avoid using earbuds because this will not work properly!
You should also make sure there are no other sources of noise that could interfere, such as the television, a conversation, etc.
Never use headphones while driving!
Blog post: Conclusion
This article has discussed several ways to use Bluetooth wireless headphones.
Use for music
The best way to use bluetooth headphones is for listening to music. You can do this through your device or via a speaker directly. With the latter, you would need to find a compatible headphone jack that will work with your device.
You can also control what features of the headset you want to use. For example, some have voice commands where you can say something into the earpiece and it will perform an action such as play or pause a song. This is very cool!
Another feature that many headsets offer is wireless noise cancellation. This works by having two microphones in each ear piece and then software processes the audio. What’s interesting is that most companies who make these types of headphones are not able to reproduce how they function so there may be other ways to achieve this.
Use for videos
A growing number of wireless headphones have touch-sensitive volume controls that let you control your music without having to use physical buttons or tap on the headphone with a device to change volume.
These feature are usually called smart headphones because they connect to your computer, mobile phone, or tablet via bluetooth technology.
The most common way to use these headphones is by pairing them with a device using their own built in software or through an app on your smartphone.
You can then access the settings from the device to play, pause, skip forward, or back, and manage voice calls if needed. Some even allow you to listen to two different songs at once!”
While very cool, this doesn’t really help unless you already have wifi set up where you can upload and download files. For many people, that isn’t the case since we don’t live close to a good source of internet.
If you’re looking to stay connected while listening to music, try investing in some bluetooth headphones so you don’t have to rely on other sources of WiFi.
Connect and disconnect when needed
One of the biggest frustrations with wireless headphones is having to manually connect each pair before you can use them. This can be tedious if you have a lot of music or calls to make, especially since most people now have mobile phones that stay connected all day long!
Luckily, this has gotten better for bluetooth headphones. Most pairs these days will automatically connect once within range, and then reconnect every time you take them off or put them away. This cuts down on annoying extra steps very much!
This article will talk about some helpful tips and tricks for using your new headphones efficiently.
Take them off when not using them
After you have paired your device with the headphones, take them away! You can either keep them in your pocket or store them somewhere safe.
Do this because it ends up creating an annoying situation where you have to re-pair the headphones every time you use them. This happens because while you are listening to music, the phone automatically searches for more compatible devices which then pair with each other.
However, if you leave the headphones at home or put them into your bag, there is a chance that someone else could accidentally turn them on and be able to listen to something private without permission.
Check for damage
Make sure your device can pair with the headphones! If it cannot, then there may be something wrong with the connection or the headphone cord.
If you lose power at some point, the earbuds will stop receiving data so make sure they are in good shape and work properly.
They should have an indicator light that turns on when they connect to your phone or computer. They should also sound a little bit louder, depending on how much battery life they have left.
You could try replacing the batteries if necessary. Sometimes, people forget to turn off their wireless devices before taking them away, which uses up more energy.
