Answered by Tom Adger

To connect your Jabra wireless headphones to your computer, you will need to follow a few simple steps. I’ll guide you through the process to ensure a seamless connection.

1. Plug in the Jabra Link 380: Start by plugging the Jabra Link 380 into an available USB port on your computer. This device serves as the wireless adapter for your Jabra headphones, allowing them to connect to your computer.

2. Turn on your Jabra headset: Ensure that your Jabra wireless headset is turned on and in pairing mode. Different Jabra models may have different methods to enter pairing mode, so refer to your headset’s user manual if you’re unsure how to do this. Typically, you can do this by holding down the power button or a dedicated pairing button for a few seconds until the LED indicator starts flashing.

3. Access sound settings on your computer: Once your Jabra Link 380 is connected and your headset is in pairing mode, go to the sound settings on your computer. The process for accessing sound settings may vary based on your operating system, but you can usually find them in the control panel or system preferences.

4. Select Jabra Link 380 as the output and input device: In the sound settings, look for the option to select your audio output and input devices. Choose the Jabra Link 380 as both the output and input device. This ensures that audio is sent to your headphones and any microphone input is received from your headphones.

5. Test the connection: After selecting the Jabra Link 380 as the output and input device, you can test the connection by playing audio or making a test call. If you hear sound through your headphones and the microphone input is detected, then the connection was successful.

It’s worth noting that some computers may require you to install specific drivers for the Jabra Link 380 to work properly. If this is the case, you can usually find the necessary drivers on the Jabra website or included in the product package.

In my personal experience, connecting Jabra wireless headphones to a computer is a straightforward process. The Jabra Link 380 adapter provides a reliable and stable connection, ensuring high-quality audio and clear communication. I have used Jabra headphones for both work and leisure activities, such as video conferencing, listening to music, or gaming, and they have always delivered excellent performance.

Remember to consult your Jabra headset’s user manual for any specific instructions or troubleshooting tips related to your particular model.
