How To Pair Your Bose Headphones With Mac
A big question that often emerges is: “How to connect beats headphones to Mac”?
Well, the first thing you have to do is to check if your computer is paired with any Bluetooth devices. If that is the case, disconnect them.
The next thing you should do is turn your SoundLink speaker on. Once you've done that, you have to hold the Bluetooth button for a couple of seconds.
The small Bluetooth light on the button will fade and light up continuously. This can go on for around 20 minutes or so until the speaker is connected to Bluetooth.
Now you have to go to System Preferences.
This is where you'll find your Bluetooth.
Now that you've entered the Bluetooth menu, you have to find your device and connect with it. Simply click on ''Set up new device''.
Then you have to click on ''Bose SoundLink Wireless mobile speaker'', after which the connection will be complete.
Once you're done with all of this, all you have to do is go to the ''Advanced'' section in the Bluetooth menu. There you'll have to agree to accepting incoming audio requests.
Finally, you need to go to the System Preferences and the hardware section.
Go to the Sound menu.
In the ''Output'' section, choose ''Bose SoundLink Wireless Mobile speaker'' again. That's it.

FAQ About Connecting Bluetooth Headphones to Mac
1. Is there a Bose Connect APP for Mac computers?
Unfortunately, this app only exists on Apple phones and it's not available on the computers yet.
2. How many devices can connect to Bose QC35?
There may be some conflicting information on the Internet regarding this question, so I'll clarify it for you.
Some people come across the problem ofBose QC35 not connecting to Macbook because they have the wrong idea about how many devices can be used.
You can connect two different devices to Bose QC35 at the same time. However, music can only be played from one device at a time, not both of them.
3. How do I pair my Bose headphones to multiple devices?
So you've paired your headphones with your phone, but you want to pair them with your computer as well?
You tried to connect them both to your headphones, but there is the problem of your Bose headphones not showing up on Macbook Bluetooth? Or you can’t find the device?
There is an easy way to solve this.
You see, whenever you use a device, it remains in your pairing list. Once you turn your headphones on, they will automatically connect with the last two devices from your pairing list.
In order to pick which devices they pair with, click the Bluetooth button. You will hear the name of the most recently used device on the pairing list.
If you click again, you'll hear the name of the next device, if you click once more, you'll hear the next one, etc.
Do this until you hear the name of the device you want to connect to.
4. How do I remove a device from the pairing list?
There may be a device on your pairing list that you don't plan to use anymore and want to delete it. This won't be a problem.
Once you've entered the list of devices, you just have to hover over the unwanted device with your pointer and a small X will appear. Click on the X and the device is gone.
5. Is there Bluetooth on Mac Pro?
Yes, Mac Pro does have the Bluetooth feature. It is located in the System Preferences menu and it's as easy to use as the Bluetooth on most devices is. Simply connect to the device that you want and that's it.
6. Why are my Bose headphones not showing up on Bluetooth MacBook?
Mac computers sometimes tend to have problems with unresponsive Bluetooth, but this is nothing that cannot be solved. If Bluetooth on your Mac won't connect, you should first try to do the obvious - turn it on and off or restart the device and try again. Sometimes it really is as simple as that.
There could also be some corrupted files on your Mac that are causing this problem. In order to get rid of them, you have to delete all additional Bluetooth files that are probably corrupted.
The only one that should remain is the one beginning with ''com.apple.Bluetooth''.
The problem may also be present because of too many USB devices.
Just remove all the USB devices that are attached to your Mac and then reboot the computer and reattach them after a couple of minutes.
If none of this works, maybe there's a bigger problem, so you'll have to reset your Bluetooth module.
How To Fix Interference From Other Devices?
Another common reason why your Bluetooth might not be working smoothly is the interference from other devices.
Many devices that you keep in your house, such as a microwave or a baby monitor have a similar frequency to your Bluetooth and this is the cause of the problem.
In order to fix this, you can simply try moving your router and computer closer to each other and moving the critical devices further away from them.
If this doesn't work, you'll probably have to reset the base station and then connect to a 5 GHz network (if that's not possible, 2.4 GHz is fine as well).
All in all, connecting your wireless Bose headphones to Mac will be a piece of cake now that you know exactly what do to.
There is no need to panic if any problems with performance come up because now you're familiar with solutions to all the possible problems.
I am hopeful that I've been a great help to you in solving the problem of your Bose headphones not connecting to Mac and that you'll be able to enjoy the high sound quality that these headphones have to offer.
