Headset is always one of the best friends of a phone, no matter what kind of phone it is, including an Android smartphone. Even, I can say that there is no Android smartphone that doesn’t come with a headset. Unfortunately, almost all of the Android smartphones in the market only come with wired headsets. Trust me, wired headsets are far troubling than wireless bluetooth headsets. However, you can always buy a bluetooth headset and pair it with your lovely Android smartphone. So, here I am going to tell you about how to pair or connect your bluetooth headset with your Android smartphone.
First, you have to turn on your bluetooth device on your Android smartphone, just go to <Settings>, <Wireless and Networks>, and then <Bluetooth Settings>. From here on, you can turn on your bluetooth device on your Android smartphone. After that, your phone will search for other bluetooth devices available. Then, you have to get your bluetooth headset into pairing mode. This may vary from headset to headset, but usually can be done by holding the answer/end call button down while turning the headset on. Of course, you can always see the instructions that come with your bluetooth headset to be sure on how to do it.
After that, your phone should find the bluetooth headset. Go ahead and click your bluetooth headset on your Android smartphone under “bluetooth devices”. Then, usually you will be asked for a “pairing code”. The pairing code is usually 1234 or 0000. Of course, you can see your bluetooth headset instructions to make sure about this. Yet, some bluetooth headsets even won’t ask you for the “pairing code” that will of courese make the pairing process a bit easier.
That’s it. Now, you can use you bluetooth headset as the audio output of your Android smartphone.
You also have to note that if you need a bluetooth headset for music or games, you will need a bluetooth headset that supports it. The bluetooth headset must support A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile). So, keep your eyes on it (even though I don’t think you will miss it).
