How to: Pair your Headphones, Earbuds to PS5Updated 2 years ago

How to Connect PS5 Headset

Unfortunately, when trying to connect from your headset for Playstation to the Playstation console itself, you will find that there is no Bluetooth connectivity to be able to connect wireless. However, that does not make your Playstation 5 headset useless, as there are plenty of other ways to connect your headset without a USB Bluetooth adapter.

You can connect your gaming headset if your TV Monitor has Bluetooth built-in directly to the TV itself, or connect wireless through a media player like Fire TV or Roku.

Also, if that method doesn’t work for you or you want to connect headphones to the PS5 a bit further back from the screen, you can plug your audio output jack directly into the controller. The pairing process is similar to the above, simply use the 3.5mm AUX cable to connect your headset directly to the device.

Does PS5 have Bluetooth?

As mentioned above, if you are wondering how to connect PS5 headset, you will have to resort to other options outside of Bluetooth. With your JLab Headset, the pairing process couldn’t be easier with PS5 Bluetooth Audio. You can use a white gaming headset, or really any color through connecting to the controller.

How to Connect Unsupported Bluetooth to PS4

Unfortunately, similar to the PS5 most Bluetooth audio devices are not supported by the PS4. If you are wondering how to use headphones with PS4 then similarly you would have to take your 3.5mm AUX Cord and connect your gaming headset directly to the controller. By connecting your headphones this way, you will not need a Playstation headphone adapter.
