Ive loaded the drivers for the USB bluetooth device and then added my headphones to my bluetooth device list but for some reason Vista refuses to connect to it. It says its connected but music wont play to the headphones.
Ive tried Vistas bluetooth troubleshooting and enabled bluetooth devices to find my computer and it still doesnt work. My bluetooth phone works fine with my computer..... It seems Vista is incompatible with bluetooth headphone devices.
Re: Windows Vista wont connect to these headphones
I have this pair of head phones and I've connected them to my computer which uses vista. What I did was connect them to the computer through pairing. If you get a message asking for a pin, you just type 0000 for the code and you should get it installed just fine.
After this is done, you go to the microphone symbol in the bottom left toolbar and right click, and go to playback devices. From here you should should see a symbol that says "Speakers" and right underneath it should say "Bluetooth Audio device". Click this one, set to default and click ok. The sound from the computer should go to the headphones at this point.
As for getting the built-in microphone to work with the computer, I'm still working on that issue myself

I think there issnt any support for these headphone on a win7 or lower OS. I mailed Polaroid asking for help, but there aren't support for older windows.. mine is working fine on my windows10 laptop, but on my windows 7 workstation, I cant get it working either..
It shows up as a "Bluetooth Peripheral Device" but there aren't drivers available for it.
Try playing other audio files. Ensure that audio can play fine from the same audio device when using a headphone.
If Step 1 is not the case, try listening to audio by connecting the speaker to the Bluetooth device using the Aux-in cable. This will isolate if it's a Bluetooth connection issue or not. Remember to disconnect/un-pair the Bluetooth connection first.
If the issue only happens when connecting via Bluetooth, do the following:
Adjust the distance between the speaker and the Bluetooth device.
Reset the speaker to its factory default settings. For instructions on how to reset your speaker, go to the product's support site to view the relevant knowledgebase article.
Clear the current pairing entry from your Bluetooth device. For instructions on how to clear the pairing entries, consult the user's manual of your Bluetooth device.
Try re-pairing the speaker and the Bluetooth device. For instructions on how to pair the speaker with the Bluetooth device, go to the product's support site to view the relevant knowledgebase article.
To further isolate, try pairing the speaker with other Bluetooth device.
If the issue happens when connecting either on Bluetooth or Aux-in, please contact Creative Customer Support via email.
Note: Creative Bluetooth speakers do not need any driver to operate. You may need to update the Bluetooth driver of your computer's built-in Bluetooth adapter or your USB dongle. To determine whether your computer or USB dongle is updated with the latest Bluetooth driver, please refer to their user's guide or website for information.
I had the same problem earlier and tried to solve it... First make sure you re-install any bluetooth drivers that you had to delete if you upgraded from windows 7... I had to delete mine in order to do the upgrade. If your laptop comes stock with windows 8, search your computer's website for any bluetooth drivers that you should have. Once you have these installed, proceed. *This might work even without the above procedure so try it out* Right click your bluetooth icon and go to add bluetooth device. Then press and hold the on/off button on your beats wireless till the LED starts flashing blue... It should show up on your laptop. When it does, click on it and it should start the pairing process. Once it's done pairing, simply go to your volume icon at the bottom right of your screen next to your clock, right click on it and go to playback devices... In there, you should see your beats wireless headphones as one of the options. Select them and click 'Set Default'. Then go to youtube or your itunes and play away :)
Windows Vista should see the bluetooth headphones without any extra drivers. If you open your bluetooth options, and you can see the headphones, and it asks for a password, try 0000 or 1111.
Also - check your computer to ensure that it does have bluetooth capability. If the computer doesn't have bluetooth built in, you'll need to use the USB communicator that should have come with the headphones. If you don't have the USB stick that came with the headphones, your best bet is to contact JBL and see if they will send you a new one.
Another thing you can try, just to verify the headphones are good - is to try to sync them with an ipod or iphone and see if you can listen to music through them.
You have to set bluetooth as default audio device. For doing this, go to >Contro Panel> Sound and Audio Devices>Audio(Tab) and in Default Device choose bluetooth device.
In my case, I had problem when i installed SP3 on XP. I changed my bluetooth driver to "Toshiba Bluetooth Stack V6.00.10" and it worked for me.
Specifying if this was Windows XP or Windows Vista would make a difference in the fixing of this problem, I am going to explain for Windows Vista hoping that you are up-to-date on the most recent operating system.
Step 1: Locate your task pane in the bottom right corner of the screen. Step 2: Playback options (I believe) Step 3: Under "Playback" select your headphones from the list. Step 4: Right click it and click "Set as default device" Wallah, it should send the sound to your headphones now rather than the PC's output device, please note, once your not using the headphones anymore you must set the default device back to the normal speakers or you will have no spound.
From Falvey86: Hold the headset start button for about 10 to 20 seconds, the lights will start flashing red and blue, then the search for Bluetooth devices from phone and it will appear as: S9. press "connect", a window will appear, place the password "0000", that should do the trick!!!!
I had a similar problem. First part of the solution is to disable the headset profile for the headphones. These headphones can't handle both headset and headphone profiles at the same time. Second part of the solution is to make sure that your headphones are on when you activate bluetooth on the computer. For some reason, Vista doesn't like setting up the initial connection on-the-go, so it will just act like its connected and move on. Hope this helps!
