What Is Bluetooth?

Bluetooth is a technology that allows two mobile devices to communicate with each other wirelessly. There are many types of Bluetooth communication, including low energy (LE), high-speed data (HS), and voice communications. When you pair a Bluetooth device with your computer, you’re essentially creating a radio link between them. Your Bluetooth device will automatically pair with your computer. Once paired, you can use your computer to control the features of your Bluetooth device, like playing music, turning on the phone, and making phone calls.

Pros And Cons Of Bluetooth Headphones

Pros

  • Bluetooth headphones are easy to use and don’t require any software installation.
  • Bluetooth headphones allow you to use your Mac as a wireless speaker and microphone, so you can listen to music or make phone calls hands-free.
  • Bluetooth headphones are more convenient than wired headphones because they don’t need a cable to connect them to your computer.
  • Bluetooth headphones have the ability to connect with multiple devices at once, so you can listen to music from your phone, for example, while also listening to music from another device like an Apple TV or computer.
  • Bluetooth headphones have the ability to connect with multiple devices at once, so you can listen to music from your phone, for example, while also listening to music from another device like an Apple TV or computer.
  • Bluetooth headphones are compatible with most mobile phones and tablets that support Bluetooth technology. They’re also compatible with computers running Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite or later versions of Windows 7 and 8 (8.1).
  • You can easily pair two pairs of Bluetooth headphones at once using the same method described above in this article (pairing one pair of headphones with one Mac and then pairing the second pair of headphones with another Mac). This is useful if you want both pairs of wireless earbuds working simultaneously on different devices (like two different phones). When used together in this way, they’ll work as a stereo pair in order for you to hear two different audio sources simultaneously (one coming from each ear).
  • Bluetooth headphones are more durable than wired headphones because they don’t need to be plugged into a power source.

Cons

  • Bluetooth headphones can’t be used with some mobile devices and computers, so you may need to use a dongle or other USB adapter if your device doesn’t support Bluetooth.
  • Some Bluetooth headphones can be picked up by hackers using radio frequencies, so they’re not totally secure and may not be safe to use in public places like airports or hotels. Also, if you have a pair of wireless earbuds that you’re not sure about, it’s always best to purchase them from an official Apple store or authorized reseller rather than buying them from a third-party seller on Amazon or eBay.
  • If you have an iPhone 5S or later model smartphone that supports wireless charging, then you can also use your phone as a power source for your Bluetooth headphones (see below for instructions).
  • If you want to listen to music on your Mac while also listening to music from another device like an Apple TV or computer, then you’ll need two pairs of wireless earbuds (or two sets of wired earbuds) because the Mac only has one set of audio output jacks (the headphone jack). You’ll need both sets of wireless earbuds connected at the same time in order for both devices’ audio sources to work simultaneously on the same Mac (one coming from each ear).
  • Bluetooth headphones are more expensive than wired headphones because they don’t need to be plugged into a power source and they’re more durable and versatile.
  • Bluetooth headphones can be picky about what devices they’ll work with, so if you have a pair of wireless earbuds that won’t connect to your Mac or iPhone, try pairing them with another device (like another phone or computer) before giving up on them completely.
  • If you want to use your iPhone as a power source for your wireless earbuds, then you’ll need an adapter that allows you to charge your iPhone while also charging the wireless earbuds at the same time (see below for instructions).
  • If you want to use two sets of wired earbuds at the same time, then you’ll need two sets of adapters (one set for each set of wired earbuds) in order for both sets of wired earbuds to work simultaneously with one Mac at the same time (one coming from each ear).
