Blue tooth adapter

I just purchased a blue tooth adapter (Kensington USB Micro Adaptor) and blue tooth headphones (Sony DR-BT22) and I can't figure out how to route the sound to it instead of the speaker. Can you help?

    It turns out that not all bluetooth is compatable. The kennsington bluetooth was only compatable with data devices. The headphone I purchased while being bluetooth was not the same. I found this out back at the store and it took about six hours. Many thanks to the people in the Mundelien,Illinois store there patients and persistance helped me through this difficult problem.........

Connect the headphones to the bluetooth.
Open the control panel, go to Sounds and Audio Devices.
Click the Audio tab.
Under Sound Playback (top portion of the tab), it says 'Default Device'. Drop the menu down and select your headphones. Click apply then ok, and you should be good to go. 

I can't guarantee that this will stay set up this way. If you disconnect the headphones, you very well may have to run through this again.

Can it use a bluetooth mouse direct[sony vgp-bms33 bluetooth lazer mouse]


Hi barfowler...

No, you cannot use a blue tooth mouse with your Sony Vaio because this model does not come with the blue tooth built in.

You can buy a plug in usb bluetooth to use with your mouse for your Sony Vaio like this many places besides the one that I show you here: http://us.kensington.com/html/9403.html

It seems your laptop Bluetooth could be 1.1 version and headphones are 2.1 it won't work. I would suggest wired headset or get a 2.1 the difference is 1.1 doesn't not allow high quality sound 2.1 does allow stereo sound. here is a sample IOGear USB 2.1 Bluetooth Micro Adapter GBU421

Need bluethooth for sony vaio vgn-n365e laptop


WHen you say blue tooth do you mean you want to hook it up to your home wireless network? if so you can buy a USB blue tooth adaptor to run on your computer. IF it does not have a USB slot you willl have to buy a rs232 port with usb adaptor or blue tooth adaptor. There is a difference between a blue tooth that you hook up at your home and a blue tooth that you can connect anywhere on line, for instance verizon wireless has a large area to use a blue tooth connection to the net but it costs you money. With the verizon plan you can use te net anywhere you can get a signal just like a cell phone. the blue tooth will allow you to connect to unlocked services for instances many hotels and cafes have wireless acess for free all you do is connect it up. If you need more help let me know and I will be glad to tell you where you can buy it and how much it costs.

The following procedure will re-establish the communication link between the Headphones and the Wireless adapter, this is called "pairing". Before you start please make sure both the headphones and the wireless adapter are fully charged and turned off.
Note: The headphones and the wireless adapter come pre-paired from the factory.
1. Press and hold the power button on the headphones. See Figure 1.

Figure 1

2. Continue to hold the button down until the LED starts flashing red/blue in an alternating pattern. Release the button when the LED starts flashing red/blue. See Figure 2.

Figure 2
3. Once the headphones LED is flashing red/blue, press and hold the power button on the wireless adapter. See Figure 3.

Figure 3
4. Hold down the button until the LED starts flashing red/blue in an alternating patter. The LED will blink blue, then turn off for a few seconds then blink red/blue. Release the button when the LED starts flashing red/blue. See Figure 4.
receiver-flash.gif
Figure 4
5. Once both the headphones LED and the adapter LED is blinking red/blue, press the volume up button once on the headphones. See Figure 5.
headphone-volumeup.jpg
Figure 5
Once the headphones is paired with the adapter, the LED on the headphones will blink blue once every two seconds. See Figure 6.
headphone-flash2.gif
Figure 6
When the adapter is paired the LED will be solid blue. See Figure 7.
receiversolid.jpg
Figure 7
The adapter may continue to blink red/blue for a few seconds even after the headphones LED starting blinking blue. This is normal; the adapter may take a few additional seconds before the LED turn solid blue.
Once the headphones and the adapter are paired, it is not necessary to pair them again even if the batteries on both units are completely drained.
Additional Note: Repeated pairing will not improve the sound quality or give the headphones and the adapter a cleaner connection.
