How to connect AirPods to PS5

If you have a pair of AirPods that work with all Apple products, you may be wondering whether or not they can be synced and used with other non-Apple devices in your home. In particular, you may want to use them as a replacement for gaming headphones on your game console, such as the PlayStation 5. While you can’t pair AirPods directly with the PS5, you can pair them with a smart TV to allow you to use them on the console. Here’s how to make it happen.


How to connect AirPods to smart TV

When you’re ready to pair your AirPods to your smart TV using Bluetooth, follow the steps below.

Step 1: Enter the settings menu on your smart TV and navigate to the Bluetooth section.

Step 2: Press and hold Pairing button on the AirPods case and wait for it to appear in the device list, then connect.

Step 3: This will automatically change the output to headphones, but if not, navigate to your smart TV’s audio settings and enable headphones as the output. You can now use AirPods to listen to any input that would normally come from your smart TV speakers, including from your PS5.

If you’re OK with spending a little extra money and don’t want to connect your AirPods to your smart TV, you can also buy a Bluetooth adapter that lets you connect your AirPods directly to your PS5. Such an adapter is also required to use AirPods as your PS5 microphone, as connecting them to a smart TV will not enable the feature.
