To connect your Sony headphones wirelessly, you need to enable Bluetooth on your Mac. Follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Apple menu in the top-left corner of your screen.
  2. Select “System Preferences” from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click on “Bluetooth” in the System Preferences window.
  4. Toggle the Bluetooth switch to turn it on if it’s not already enabled.

Step 3: Pairing Your Sony Headphones

In this step, we will pair your Sony headphones with your Mac via Bluetooth:

  1. Put your Sony headphones in pairing mode. Refer to the user manual for specific instructions as different models may have different methods for entering pairing mode.
  2. In the Bluetooth preferences window, you should see a list of available devices.
  3. Select your Sony headphones from the list.
    • If prompted, enter the passcode provided in the user manual or on the packaging.
  4. Click on the “Pair” button to establish the connection between your Mac and Sony headphones.

Step 4: Testing and Troubleshooting

After successfully connecting your Sony headphones to your Mac, it’s time to test them:

  1. Play some audio or video on your Mac.
    • If you don’t hear any sound, ensure that the volume is turned up both on your Mac and your headphones.
    • If you still encounter issues, try restarting both devices and repeat the pairing process.

Troubleshooting Tips:

  • Delete previous pairings: If you have previously connected your Sony headphones to other devices, make sure to delete those pairings before attempting to connect them to your Mac.
  • Update software: Ensure that both your Mac and Sony headphones have the latest firmware or software updates installed. This can often resolve compatibility issues.
  • Contact support: If you are still experiencing difficulties connecting your Sony headphones to your Mac, refer to the user manual or contact Sony support for further assistance.

Congratulations! You have successfully connected your Sony headphones to your Mac computer.
