3. How do I setup my gaming headset for PC?
Find the wire or cable coming from your headset and plug it into the small circular audio port; these ports will typically have a small picture of a headset or mic next to the correct hole. Once all the cables coming from your headset are plugged in, search “Sound Settings” in your pc search box and then open the sound panel in the search results.
The Output settings are what plays audio back for you to hear, and Input is your microphone or what lets you send audio to your computer. Use the drop-down menu to select your headset but be aware that the device names can look a bit different from the item description online, which is normal. Choose the suitable device, and then scroll a little further down to click the Troubleshoot button. This process will walk you through testing your mic to ensure it works. Once everything works set the correct mic as your default device, and then you are ready to enjoy your new Bluetooth headphones.
4. How do I setup my gaming headset for Xbox One?
Connecting a gaming headset to your Xbox One is simple, but you will need the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter. Plug the Stereo Headset Adapter into the rectangular port on the bottom of your controller, and then plug your headset’s 35.mm audio jack into the adapter to connect the devices.
5. How do I connect my gaming headset with PS5?
To connect your Bluetooth headset to your PS5, you will need your PS5 controller and the 3.5mm audio jack from your headset. Plug your headset cable into the port on the bottom of your controller. Now, press and hold the PS button on the front of the controller until a menu appears on the screen. From that menu, navigate to sound/devices and adjust your sound settings for your now-connected headset.
