How To Connect Bose Headphones To Macbook

The pairing process for Bose headphones is designed to be as easy and convenient as possible, thanks to the Bose Connect App. The problem is, the Bose Connect App only works on Android and iOS devices. The Bose Connect App can not be used on the Mac. To pair Bose headphones to a Mac, you will be required to change a few settings. Here is how to connect your Bose Headphones to your Mac:

Step 1: Disconnect Other Bluetooth Devices

The last thing you need when connecting your Bose headphones to your Mac is for the connection to be tripped up by Bluetooth interference. To prevent this, disconnect all of your other Bluetooth devices (not including your keyboard and mouse). To do this:
  1. Click on the Apple Logo, then select System Settings.
  2. Click Bluetooth.
  3. You will see a list of all your connected devices. Click on one of the Info icons to bring up the information pane.
  4. Click Disconnect to disconnect the device from your computer.
  5. Repeat the process for all the Bluetooth devices that need to be disconnected.

Step 2: Turn On Your Bose Headphones

Turn your headphones on by pressing the power button for about two seconds. When you hear “Power On”, then your headphones have been powered on successfully.

Step 3: Put Your Bose Headphones Into Pairing Mode

To put your headphones into pairing mode, press and hold the power button until you hear “Ready To Connect.” You will also see a blinking blue light on your headphones, which indicates they are in pairing mode.

Step 4: Ensure That Bluetooth Is Enabled.

For your headphones to connect to your computer, you must have Bluetooth enabled. To do this:
  1. Click on the Apple Logo, then select System Settings.
  2. Click on Bluetooth.
  3. At the top of the window, make sure the Bluetooth switch is toggled on. If it is, you will see a message that says: “Now discoverable as [your device].”

Step 5: Connect Your Bose Headphones

Once your headphones are in pairing mode and Bluetooth is enabled on your computer, your Mac will automatically find your headphones. Under My Devices, you will see your Bose headphones available to pair. Click connect to pair them. After a few seconds, your two devices will pair together, and you will see “connected” next to your headphones. Your headphones may ask you to enter a passcode to connect to your computer. If so, enter the passcode that appears on your Bose headphones into the box that appears on your Mac and then click Continue.

Step 6: Adjust The Sound Through The Output Pane

The last thing you need to do is set the volume at a comfortable level. If you do this through the output pane, then you don’t have to worry about your headphones being too loud if you raise the volume through the universal setting.
  1. In System Settings, click on Sound.
  2. At the bottom of the window, you will find the Output tab. In the list of connected devices, click on your Bose headphones.
  3. Once you click on your device, you can adjust the Output Volume at the bottom of the screen. Adjust the level to a comfortable volume.
Your headphones are now connected to your Mac via Bluetooth. Now, you can enjoy music and listen to videos from your Mac through your Bose headphones!
