I was given a pair of Sony MDR-XB650BT headphones, brand new, box unopened.

My plan was to listen to movies etc on my HP-PC but found out it does not have Bluetooth.

I bought a Bluetooth USB dongle to achieve this but cannot get them to connect.

 

Dongle is Avantree Wireless Micro USB adapter.

 

The PC paired, it acknowledges the headphones but will not connect.

 

I tried it with my ipad and it hooked up immediately.

 

Any ideas?

Here is the manual for the Avantree:

Here is the support page for the headphones:

https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=MDRXB650BT&template_id=1&region_id=1&tab=howto#/howtoTab

 

Normally, once they are paired, all you should need to do is to tell Windoze to use the headphones instead of the speakers.

What version of Windows?

What is the full model number of the HP?

Did you install the BlueSoleil software?

Yes, when I set it as the default device the sound coming from the speakers drops out but there is none through the headphones.

On the bottom of the right earpiece (according to the manual) is the volume control.  Turn it all the way up AND check the volume on your PC, too.

We tried all that thanks, I was wondering if it had something to do with the PC not being a "mobile device".

The manual says it works on Vista, 7, 8, and 10 so that's not the problem; but what do you have for a video card and how is it connected? (VGA, DVI, HDMI, and any adapters?)

By the way, HP says there is no such thing as a p67721.

Not sure about the video card, I'll look a bit harder.

Yes, that's it; but, how is it plugged into the monitor?

The top picture in this article shows you the three:

Did you mean DVI?

A cable with blue ends is almost always VGA.  A cable with white ends is usually DVI.

Neither carries the audio (HDMI does) so there is something else going on here.

What, again, is the real model number of the PC or, better yet, it's Product Number (P/N) which is on the same sticker as the serial number?  On your vintage, they are usually on the bottom of the PC; but, turn it off before you try to look at it, OK?
