Pairing Beats Headphones with an Android

Pairing your Beats by Dre headphones to your Android device is a pretty straightforward process. If you’ve purchased a new pair of headphones, or if you’ve had your headphones for a while and are connecting to a new device, this is a good time to make sure your headphones are set up to the full audio experience they are capable of.

If you haven’t set up your headphones before, you can follow these steps to pair them to your Android device so you can customize your listening experience.

Step 1: Open the box and remove your new headphones. You should see two cords, a 3- prong one, and a USB one.

Step 2: Connect the 3 prong cord, with the flat part of the cord going towards the 3 prongs, and plug the other end into the USB port on your device.

Step 3: Then take your Android device, and go to settings –> Sound settings –> Beats. Once you are in this menu, you will see "solo hd" (if you have headphones) or "beat box" (if you have speakers). Click on the one that best matches your headphones, and then wait for your headphones to pair.

Pairing Beats Headphones to a Windows Computer or Laptop

Pairing your Beats by Dre wireless over the ear headphones to your Windows computer or laptop is a fairly quick and painless process.

This tutorial will walk you through every step of the process if you’re utilizing the “wired” headphones (as opposed to the “wireless” ones).

Remember, the first step to getting your headphones working with your computer is to install the software included with the headphones. Go through the setup wizard, and in a few minutes, you’ll be ready to rock!

If your headphones are already paired to another Windows computer or Windows phone, you’ll have to unpair them before pairing them to another system. Follow these steps to do that:

  • Unplug the headphones from the computer and plug them back into the USB port in the computer
  • Open the Control Panel Screen in Windows
  • Click on Hardware and Sound
  • Click on Devices and Printers
  • Right click on the headphones and choose Disconnect

Now you’re ready to pair to your new computer or laptop. Follow these steps:

Hold the power button on your headphones for around 8 seconds

The power button, which is located below the volume control knob, is the only button located on the right ear cup.
