How to pair Bluetooth headphones to IPAD?
Most headsets have a power button or a switch to turn the device on. Press the "Pairing" button on your Bluetooth headset, if necessary. Select your headset from the Devices list on the iPad's Bluetooth window. Enter the passkey or PIN for your headset, if prompted.
Because you use the word 'pair' I have to assume that your headphones are Bluetooth-enabled. If this is the case, you can pair and connect the headphones to your phone and/or your iPad, which are, like most, if not all, phones and tablets, Bluetooth-enabled. On the other hand, very few desktop computers and/or laptops are Bluetooth-enabled. Your computer does not recognize your Bluetooth-enabled headphones because it is not Bluetooth-enabled.
Connect the iPhone Dual Dock or iPhone Bluetooth Travel Cable to a USB 2.0 port on your computer (not on the keyboard).
Connect iPhone and the headset to the dock or cable. The headset pairs with iPhone automatically.
Pairing iPhone Bluetooth Headset with another Bluetooth-enabled deviceTo pair the iPhone Bluetooth Headset with another wireless device, such as a Bluetooth-enabled phone or computer. Step 1: Set the headset to be discoverable
Turn off the headset.
Press and hold the headset button for about eight seconds, until you hear the startup tone and then five quick high beeps.
The headset is now discoverable and will remain so for about five minutes. The status light blinks while the headset is discoverable.
Step 2: Turn on Bluetooth on the other device and search for devices
On the device, turn Bluetooth on and set the device to search for other Bluetooth devices.
On the device, choose iPhone Bluetooth Headset and enter the PIN code 0000.
See the instructions that came with your other Bluetooth-enabled device for more information about pairing it with Bluetooth devices.
Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters. Original iPhone only: While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port:
To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times. If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth). If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on. If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.
I had the same problem as you although I was able to find a solution. If your bluetooth adapter on your computer doesn't support A2DP then you can purchase this adapter from IO Gear: http://www.iogear.com/product/GBU421/
or another adapter that supports this feature. Windows will try to install it as a generic bluetooth adapter (which wont allow you to pair the headset) but if you install the disk that comes with this, it will also install the additional drivers needed for the headset.
Walmart carries it for $20 at most stores or $13 online. I got mine at the store.
If you need help installing it let me know I can provide the steps I did.
