Can you pair AirPods Pro with Windows PC?

Answered by James Kissner

You can definitely pair Apple AirPods Pro with a Windows PC. While AirPods Pro are primarily designed to seamlessly connect with Apple devices, they also use Bluetooth technology, which allows them to work with other devices, including Windows PCs.

To pair AirPods Pro with a Windows PC, follow these steps:

1. Make sure that the AirPods Pro are in their charging case and the lid is open.
2. On your Windows PC, go to the “Settings” menu.
3. Click on the “Devices” option.
4. In the Bluetooth & other devices settings, click on “Add Bluetooth or other device.”
5. A pop-up window will appear, select the “Bluetooth” option.
6. Your PC will start searching for nearby Bluetooth devices. Wait for your AirPods Pro to appear in the list.
7. When you see your AirPods Pro listed, click on them to initiate the pairing process.
8. Your Windows PC will attempt to connect to the AirPods Pro. You may be prompted to enter a passcode, which is usually “0000” or “1234”.
9. Once the pairing is successful, you will see a confirmation message on your PC, and your AirPods Pro should be connected and ready to use.

It’s important to note that while AirPods Pro will work with Windows PCs, some features may be limited compared to using them with Apple devices. For example, the seamless switching between Apple devices may not be available, and you may not have access to all the advanced controls and settings that are available through the Apple ecosystem.

However, for basic audio playback and calls, AirPods Pro should work just fine with a Windows PC. They will provide you with the convenience of wireless listening and the noise cancellation features that make them popular.

In my personal experience, I have successfully paired AirPods Pro with my Windows laptop without any issues. The process was straightforward, and once connected, the audio quality was excellent. I was able to listen to music, watch videos, and make video calls without any connectivity or sound problems.

While AirPods Pro are optimized for Apple devices, they are still compatible with Windows PCs and other Bluetooth-enabled devices. So, if you own a Windows PC and want to enjoy the benefits of AirPods Pro, go ahead and give it a try!
