Wireless headphones have been a long-awaited invention. Finally, we have the option of not being tethered to our devices just because we want to listen to music or watch a show. This is where the AirPods come in. The AirPods come with a charging case and wireless ear buds for listening when you’re on the go.
How to connect AirPods to your PS4
To connect the AirPods to your PS4, you must first download the app “AirPods” from the Apple App Store. Once the “AirPods” app is downloaded, open it and tap on “Allow”. This will take you to a screen where you’ll need to enter in your PSN ID and select what device you would like to sync your AirPods with. When everything is selected, tap the blue button that says “Next”.
The next page will ask for permission to sync your AirPods. You can either allow or deny this request and if you decide to allow it, please be sure that both of your AirPod ear buds are connected before proceeding.
When the process is complete, you’ll get a message letting you know that it’s been successful. If for some reason, this isn’t successful then try restarting the process by tapping on “Start Over”. The steps mentioned above should work but if not then there might be an issue with the AirPods themselves. To check this, please make sure they’re fully charged and try again until it’s successful.
Things you should know about AirPods
The AirPods come with a charging case and wireless ear buds for listening when you’re on the go.
Hardware: The AirPods use a special W1 chip, which makes pairing seamless and quick. You don’t need to go through each step of Bluetooth pairing because it will be automatically detected by your PS4.
Software: This is where the issues arise. When you plug in your AirPods, it will play any audio that’s playing from your PS4 as well as start adding new audio from any apps that are open on the PS4. For example, if you have Netflix open on the PS4, if someone calls you while you have your headphones plugged in, there will be a sound coming from both the TV and the phone call. To fix this issue, make sure your TV or audio device is not connected to the PS4 at all times.
Connecting AirPods to your PS4 is pretty simple. You’ll need to make sure your PS4 is updated with the latest firmware, once you do this you’ll be able to connect your AirPods to your PS4. There are a few things you should know about AirPods before you connect them to your console though.
