The cable that I used to connect my headphones to my laptop broke. I found it unreasonable to pay $55 for a new one, so I decided that trying to figure out how to pair them with my laptop would be easier and more cost efficient. For the past 6 days, I have been googling how to do it, with no luck yet. Here is what I've gathered so far:
My laptop has no trouble pairing with other devices. I'm confused to exactly what this is or how it works, but several forums have said that I need an A2DP profile to do so.
I can connect the headphones to my phone, using the app recommended by them (NFC Easy Connect.) My tablet however cannot find the device without the app.
When trying to download a Lenovo bluetooth adapter, it said that no bluetooth device was detected. ( https://gyazo.com/8fae27fd4791c2ef0254ed3d8964389d ) Under device manager, I have bluetooth devices listed under both the "Bluetooth" column and the "Network Adapters" column. ( https://gyazo.com/1a6f68efeec1fce13f7496975e87cacc ) I do not think this is the problem though, since my laptop can find any other bluetooth device easily.
I am really at a loss on what to do. The headphones are meant to connect to laptops with bluetooth adapters, yet it seems impossible. The Sony website says that if you search, it should be easily able to detect and pair with the devices. Any suggestions on what to do? I will update information on my computer or headphones if necessary. Thanks for any replies.
