Finch: Hey guys.
So I bought the Sony MDR10RBT Headphones a month or so ago. I never really used them when I got them, just tested them out and seemed to be ok. However recently I have been trying to get them to work and they aren't. I charged them up recently and just now tried to pair with my laptop and got the message "That didn't work. Try Again and make sure your Bluetooth headset is still discoverable." My phone (HTC One) cant even see the headphones. So my phone doesn't see the headphones, but my laptop sees but doesn't pair.
Am I doing something wrong here with the pairing? Because the first headphones I bought from Amazon didn't really work either, now this isn't pairing.
I haven't tried with a wire yet.
Bluetooth can be very flakey. Very often it depends on what Bluetooth protocols are equipped on the various devices.
See here to see how many profiles there are, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Bluetooth_profiles
I'd guess the problem is't necessarily with your headphones. It's possible your laptop doesn't have an audio profile for Bluetooth. I'm not sure what the problem is with your phone. I know the HTC One I had would connect to the Parrot car handsfree kit for phone calls but wouldn't connect to play the turn by turn audio from Google Maps.
Hopefully it's just a minor blip and you find out the trick for getting the headphone connected.
