How to Connect Bluetooth Headphones to PC

Bluetooth headphones have taken over because of their convenience, extra features, and audio quality that is on par with wired headphones. Most modern PCs have Bluetooth built in, but you may still come across some that don’t. If your computer doesn’t come with Bluetooth capability, you will need a Bluetooth transmitter. To achieve the best audio quality possible, you should get a low latency transmitter and pair it low latency Bluetooth headphones.

Use Low Latency Transmitter + Receiver

For high-fidelity listening, you should always use a low latency transmitter with a long latency receiver. Luckily, most modern Bluetooth headphones already support the aptX wireless technology, so the only challenge is to find a good transmitter.

The Avantree Bluetooth transmitter is the world’s first dual-link aptX-enabled transmitter with practically no audio delay and support for Bluetooth 4.2. The transmitter can be used with almost all audio devices with 3.5mm audio jack or RCA cables.

You can either power the transmitter via a dedicated DC charger or a USB port on your PC. The transmitter remembers the last device it was connected to, and a single slider switch can make the transmitter auto-reconnect in case it loses signal.

Use Transmitter Only and Connect via 3.5mm/RCA Jack

You can add Bluetooth capability to any non-Bluetooth device by connecting a small 3.5mm portable Bluetooth transmitter, like this one from TaoTronics, the leading manufacturer of Bluetooth audio equipment.

The main advantage of this solution is how portable and versatile it is. Let’s say you want to add modern Bluetooth connectivity to your aging laptop. You just plug the transmitter into the headphone jack, turn it on, and enjoy up to 7 hours of high-fidelity Bluetooth listening.

The TaoTronics transmitter features the A2DP  Bluetooth Stereo profile, which defines how high-quality stereo audio can be streamed from one device to another over a Bluetooth connection. What’s more can pair the transmitter with any power bank to greatly extend its battery life.

Use Transmitter Only and Connect via USB

Unless you’re using an ancient PC, you should have at least a few USB ports at your disposal. If you’re willing to temporarily sacrifice one of them, you can get a micro USB Bluetooth transmitter for just a few dollars. The advantages of such transmitter are twofold: it doesn’t require external power, and it’s so small that you won’t even notice it. Many people even decide to leave it plugged in permanently.

The main thing to watch out for is compatibility. The transmitter we’ve linked to above works with all recent version of the Windows operating system. It also supports various Linux distributions, such as Raspbian or Ubuntu.
