3 Easy Ways to Use Bluetooth Headphones with Your Xbox One
Wireless connectivity is supported in many devices, but unfortunately, the Xbox One console doesn’t have built-in Bluetooth support. However, there are ways to connect Bluetooth headphones to your Xbox One.
First and foremost, it’s important to note that specific Xbox One-compatible headsets can easily connect to the console without Bluetooth. If you have one of these supported headsets, you can simply follow the pairing instructions.
For non-compatible headsets, there are alternative methods. One option is to use a Bluetooth transmitter. Plug the transmitter into the 3.5mm headphone jack on your wireless Xbox One controller, turn on both the transmitter and your Xbox, and connect your Bluetooth headphones to the transmitter. This will allow your Xbox One audio to be sent to your Bluetooth headphones.
If your smart TV has Bluetooth capabilities, another option is to connect your headphones to your TV’s Bluetooth. Just connect your Xbox One to the TV using an HDMI cable, pair your Bluetooth headphones with the TV, and you’ll be able to stream Xbox One audio to your headphones.
You can also use your PC to receive Xbox One audio on your Bluetooth headphones. Connect your Xbox One console and your Windows 10 or Windows 11 PC to the internet. Download the Xbox Console Companion app from the Microsoft Store, sign in with your Xbox One account, and connect your Xbox One. Then, pair your Bluetooth headphones with your PC and stream Xbox One audio to your headphones.
While it’s unfortunate that the Xbox One lacks native Bluetooth capabilities, these alternative methods can help you enjoy your gaming experience with Bluetooth headphones.
