Laptops are the primary devices we all work with, so it only makes sense that you would want to connect your beats to your laptop. Lucky for you, Beats are easy to work with, and you won’t have too much trouble connecting the two devices.
What you need here is a good Bluetooth connection that allows you to pair the headphones to the laptop. You just have to make sure that the headphones are close to the laptop so it does not lose the Bluetooth connection.
The first step to connecting is to turn on your headphones. They will either be in pairing mode and if they are not, then you simply have to activate it. This part is a little different for the many different models that Beats has.
For the Solo Pros model, you must press down on the ‘Mode’ button that is on the left earcup. This button also doubles as the ON and OFF button, and you can use it to turn on the noise-canceling feature as well.
For these two models, all you have to do is press down on the Power Button for around 5 seconds. There are five lights underneath which will flash when you do this. Release it once you see the flash.
With the Powerbeats you have to press down on the button located on the left earbud. Wait until you see the indicator light flash, then you can release it.
With this model, you need to keep the earbuds in their case. Keep the case open and then press down the button located inside. You will see the light blink, and it is done.
This is very simple. You just have to press down on the Power button, and then you will see that the indicator light will flash. Release the button once you have seen the flash.
Now that you have activated the headphones, you must ensure that the headphones are close to your laptop. The laptop must be unlocked for the pairing to work. Go over to your Bluetooth menu and connect. This will be different for Windows and Mac.
On Windows, you just have to click on the start icon located at the bottom left corner of the screen. Search ‘Bluetooth’, and then you will find ‘Bluetooth and other devices settings’, and select it.
On a Mac, there I the magnifying glass icon located on the top right, and over here search ‘Bluetooth’, followed by selecting ‘Bluetooth’ once you see it appear. And if you still can’t find it, look for it under ‘System Preferences’.
After this, your laptop will start to search for nearby devices, and that is where your Beats will be, ready to pair. Once the Beats appear on the screen, click on it and it will start to connect.
In case you are asked to provide a passcode here, simply enter ‘0000’. And voila, your Beats are connected. You can enjoy all the good things you want!
If you wish to disconnect your beats from your laptop, either to pair it with another device or simply because you don’t want it connected anymore, you can choose to either permanently or temporarily disconnect them.
Temporarily disconnecting is very simple and short. Simply turn the headphones off, or turn the Bluetooth off on the laptop or any other device you are using it with. You can also choose to put them into pairing mode. This too will disconnect the Beats.
If you, however, want to permanently disconnect Beats, then you need to make your laptop forget the device.
On your Windows PC, just click on Beats and then click on ‘Remove Device’. If you are on a Mac, then right click on your Beats, then click on ‘Remove’. Or simply click the ‘X’ icon which is located right to its name.
Now if you ever change your mind and you want to reconnect it to your laptop again, you simply have to turn them on.
And if you have paired them with another device in between, you must disconnect it from that said device first, by either moving it out of the said device’s Bluetooth range or turning its Bluetooth off.
Now turn the Bluetooth on the device you wish to connect it to and repeat the connecting process.
Connecting Beats to your phone is basically the same steps as connecting it to your laptop. All you have to do is ensure it is connecting well to the Bluetooth, which will get it going.
If you wish to disconnect the Beats on your phone, then follow these simple steps. For Android phones, select the gear icon positioned beside Beats, and then press on ‘Forget’ or ‘Unpair’. And if you are using an iPhone, then click the ‘i’ icon beside Beats, and then click on ‘Forget this device’.
Reconnecting Beats on phone follows the same steps as reconnecting on your laptop. Which is connecting it to the Bluetooth again, and making sure it has been disconnected from other devices.
Some people face issues with their Beats not pairing to their desired devices. This can happen for a few reasons, but all of those are fixable!
One of the first things you can do is ensure that the Bluetooth is one and discoverable. As simple as it is, people often make this simple mistake.
Ensure that the Beats are close to your laptop or any other device you are using, so it is in the Bluetooth range. If you get up and walk away, or move, it might cause the connection to break. Try to keep both the devices within a few feet of each other.
Another thing you can do is restart both the devices. So if you are pairing the device with your laptop, restart both your laptop and your Beats. And then try to pair them again. This is very simple and effective, but underrated.
Factory reset your Beats so that it becomes as if it were new. Another old trick in the book which people often forget, but it works wonders. This will remove all its previous data, so you will have to pair it from scratch again.
However, every different Beats model has a different factory reset method, so be sure to check those out before you attempt to do it.
And if you cannot get your Beats to connect with any method mentioned here, then you probably have a different problem on hand, for which you should contact Beats Support directly.
