How To Connect Bluetooth Headphones To PS4

This blog post is going to be a guide on how to connect your Bluetooth headphones to your PS4. There are many different ways you can do this, but the easiest way would be through enabling the “Play Via Bluetooth” option in Settings on console settings. This will allow you to pair any wireless device with your PS4.

First, though, you’ll need to ensure that your Bluetooth headphones are compatible with the PS4. This means ensuring they are an officially licensed wireless device by Sony. There are some Bluetooth headphone options out there that look like they might work but are not supported. When in doubt, check the box or the manual of your headphone for a sticker noting official Playstation compatibility.

How to Connect Bluetooth Headphones to PS4

After you have made sure your headphones are compatible with the PS4, you can begin pairing them to your console.

To do this, go to Settings > Devices > Bluetooth settings on your PS4.


Here you will see a list of all currently paired devices within range of your console. If you only have one device paired (i.e., if it’s the same brand as your console), then it’ll automatically be listed here. If not, though, select “Add Device” and choose the option for Wireless Stereo Headset Example or Wireless Sports Example.

This is how you can find out whether or not any given pair of Bluetooth headphones are compatible with the PS4; if they are already on this list, then they are.

Now, follow the instructions on your console to pair with your headphones. To do this, put them in pairing mode (usually achieved by pressing and holding down some combination of buttons) then back on your PS4 select “Connect” when prompted.

This will start the process of establishing a connection between the two devices; it may require several attempts before they successfully pair up, though. How long this takes depends in large part on what kind of Bluetooth protocol your headphone uses for communication – how fast it can transfer data wirelessly – as well as its range and power usage capabilities.

Once you have successfully paired, you should see a confirmation screen noting that a successful pairing was made. At this point, if you want, you can rename your device to make it easier to identify later on. Once this is done, though, note that your headphones are now successfully hooked up to your PS4, and the process of playing through them is identical to how you would normally play with regular wired headphones (given that they’re wireless).

How to Connect Unsupported Bluetooth headphones to PS4

You can connect your Bluetooth headphones to your PS4 is by using an Aux cord. First, plug the small end of the aux cord into the headphone jack on your console and then plug in your Bluetooth headphones. Turn on your Bluetooth headphones by holding down its power button for 4 seconds. To check if it’s working, look at the indicator light that should have turned purple confirming that it has paired with the console.

Troubleshooting: There are a few things you should keep in mind when connecting Bluetooth headphones to ps4. Make sure that your PS4 is on firmware 4.55 or higher so it supports Bluetooth headsets.

Also, try to avoid obstructions between the device since they have a range of 10 meters/33 feet by default. This means that walls can interfere with the signal strength and range of connection, but there’s also no reason why you couldn’t purchase an amplifier or audio enhancers to kick up their strength and range capabilities if needed.

After that, make sure to update your PlayStation 4 ‘s firmware if you still can’t get it to work. The last thing we’d recommend is to try disconnecting headphones and reconnecting them to see whether or not there’s anything interfering with the device itself (obstructions and such).
