No bluetooth headset support? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks.  I've tried connecting two different bluetooth headsets but neither of them were able to install.  Is this not supported in Windows 7?

  • First of all, the PC need to have a bluetooth device. If not, you need to purchase a USB Bluetooth dongle. Tell us the model of your PC. If it has a build in bluetooth device, type “Bluetooth” in the start menu,Click for Add a Bluetooth device, in the meantime, make sure your Bluetooth headphone is on.Windows will automatically search for your device.

    Go to control panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printer > Bluetooth DevicesYou should be able to see your device here, and test out the sound settings etc. Make sure you’ve choose the Bluetooth headphone for playback and you are now good to go ! Enjoy

  • Hello FuzzyReets,
    Headset is supported in Windows 7.
    This is the link to the Windows 7 Audio changes which includes references to Bluetooth audio devices.

    You probably need to check with Aliph to see if the device is supported on Windows 7.

  • Hi,

    It is supportive in Windows 7.

    Could you tell us the model of your bluetooth headsets?

    First check if they are compatible with Win7 from this site:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Default.aspx?type=Software

  • The headset I would like to use is the Aliph Jawbone Prime.  I could not find drivers for this.  If you can help with this I would greatly appreciate it.  THanks!

    Right I' aware of these things.  I work in IT for a living.  It doesn't appear to have any drivers for bluetooth headsets.  I don't see any on the Aliph website either.

  • Will your PC recognize other bluetooth device? If so, there might be some compatible issue between the Aliph headset with windows 7 operation system. You can also try pair the headset with another PC running windows 7 and see if the issue reappears.
