Why Bluetooth Device Pairing Fails

However, in exceptional cases, you have to find the error. Here are a few reasons why your Bluetooth pairing might be failing:
- Bluetooth requires both software and hardware to function correctly. As a result, if your devices can’t communicate in a common Bluetooth language, they won’t be able to pair.
- Bluetooth, in principle, is backward compatible: Bluetooth devices that implement the Bluetooth 5 standard should be able to connect with devices that use, for instance, the antique Bluetooth 2.1 standard, which got introduced in 2007. Any older than this, then they won’t be able to connect.
- Bluetooth headphones may be paired with many devices, including your smartphone and computer. However, bear in mind that depending on the type of your Bluetooth headphones, you may only be able to connect to one device at a time. If you have problems connecting the headphones to your phone after completing this setup, then you have to turn off your laptop’s Bluetooth. It is because your Bluetooth headphones usually can pair with up to one device.
