We’re going to tell you how to connect Bluetooth that isn’t supported to the PS4 now. During the launch of the PlayStation 4, Sony said that the PS4 doesn’t support A2DP (bluetooth devices) or any other Bluetooth profile when audio is streamed. A2DP stands for Advanced Audio Distribution Profile, which is a Bluetooth stereo music profile that can be sent over the air.
Sony stopped supporting Bluetooth devices for the PS4 because they don’t work. As a result, when you use these devices, A2DP will be behind by 100-200ms. This would make the situation even more weird. So, you can’t connect most Bluetooth devices to the PS4 because of this. But there is a way around this. You can use the methods below to connect Bluetooth devices to your PS4 and play games!
It isn’t clear how to connect Bluetooth headphones with a PS4
When you use a USB Dongle, you can connect a Bluetooth Headset.
If you want to play games, the PlayStation 4 is a good choice. It doesn’t have a lot of features, but it is still good. One of them is that you can’t use any Bluetooth headset. You can only use a few official and licensed ones. The good news is that there is an accessory that can help: the PS4 Bluetooth headset dongle.
Simple: You get a USB dongle that goes into the PS4, and a 3.5mm microphone that goes into your controller. The FreeMe works very well: It doesn’t need any special software to work. Once the dongle is in, you can pair your Bluetooth headset with it like normal. You’ll be good to go. People in your multiplayer game or group chat can hear your game sounds through their headsets.
The 3.5mm microphone is a wonder, with a high level of sensitivity that allows it to pick up your voice even if your face isn’t near the controller. You can still play as you normally would. The PlayStation 4’s settings menu can be used to change the volume of the microphone to match your voice and the way you play.
The dongle and microphone are small and light, so you won’t even notice they’re there when they’re in place after you put them in. Because they’re small, they’re also easy to carry around and won’t get in the way when you play with your favorite Bluetooth headphones.
Make sure that the Bluetooth adapter dongle is plugged into the USB port on your PS4.
Wait for the dongle to turn blue quickly, then move on to the next step. It shows if it’s in pairing mode.
Please turn on your Bluetooth headset and put it into pairing mode as well. Also, please turn it on.
Now that your Bluetooth headset has been connected to your PS4, you should see a blue light on the dongle.
You can now put your microphone into the 3.5mm port on your controller.
Your PS4 will now show a message confirming that this connection has been made.
Bluetooth headset: You can now listen and talk at the same time.
Using Wired Support, you can connect Bluetooth that isn’t supported to your PS4.
It’s not going to work if you try to connect your headphones the first way. You’ll have to connect them with wired media instead of Bluetooth. If you think Sony doesn’t even have a way to connect Bluetooth headphones, you’d be wrong. Sony has. Your PS4 controller has an audio jack that you can connect to any headset so that your voice can be heard by other people when you play games.
You would need to have an audio headphone jack, which may have come with your Bluetooth headphones, to do this. Otherwise, you can buy one on Amazon for a few dollars right away, or you can go to the store.
Connect the headphone audio jack to your headset and to your PS4 controller, then turn on your PS4. You need to make sure that the controller is connected properly.
Go to Settings, Devices, and Audio devices now, and then click on the Audio tab. 2-21
Select Output Device and make sure to choose the option that says “Yes.” Headphones are connected to a controller with a wire. You can use the volume control (headphone) below to change the volume to fit your needs. As long as your headset comes with a microphone, you can also change its setting. 3-19
If we want to make sure that the chat as well as the game volume is sent to your headphones, we need to change the Output to Headphones setting. Make sure it’s set to All Audio. 4-17
Save the changes you made and close the setting. It’s time to see if you can hear the sound well on your headphones now.
PSP: How do you connect Bluetooth headphones to a PS4?
Bluetooth devices that are approved to connect to PS4 can be used to connect to the PS4.
If your Bluetooth device is supported by Sony, you can set up the settings to pair it right away. Check the headset if you don’t know if Sony does. But it’s never a good idea to try to set up the settings on your own.
In order to connect, you need to turn on your Bluetooth headset and put it in “paired mode.”
Visit PlayStation 4 Settings> Peripherals> Bluetooth Devices to see what Bluetooth devices are on your PS4.
Take a look at the name of your headset and click on it to connect.
As long as the connection is good, you can now try to play games with your Bluetooth headset now.
