In this article, we will walk through how you can easily pair multiple Bluetooth headphones to your iPhone using this guide; so everyone can enjoy listening together!

If you want to enjoy music or watch a movie without disturbing those nearby, connecting multiple Bluetooth headphones to your iPhone may be the ideal way to do this. While initially this process might appear daunting, with just a few easy steps you’re on your way towards connecting multiple headphones at the same time! Here is our step-by-step guide of how to do just that:

Step 1: Verify Compatibility

Before making your selections, ensure all Bluetooth headphones you plan to connect are compatible with the iPhone. You can do this by consulting either their documentation or visiting their manufacturer’s website – these steps should ensure a successful pairing!

Step 2: Turn On Bluetooth

To start, ensure Bluetooth is turned on on your iPhone by visiting “Settings,” tapping “Bluetooth,” and moving the toggle switch over.

Step 3: Make Sure your headphones are in Pairing Mode

Now, put all the headphones you wish to connect into pairing mode. Depending on their model, putting headphones into pairing mode might vary; therefore, for best results referring to their user manual may help.

Step 4: Search For The First Headphone

Once your headphones are paired and in pairing mode, head into “Settings” on your iPhone and select Bluetooth. Your iPhone should search for available devices; once found you should see their name listed and tap to connect.

Step 5: Connect Other Headphones

Connect the second pair of headphones once you’ve connected one pair, place both sets into pairing mode, and repeat step 4 to connect both pairs to your iPhone.

After the second headphone is successfully connected, avoid closing or navigating away from the Bluetooth settings on both devices.

By keeping the Bluetooth settings open on both devices, you ensure that they are actively maintaining connections with their respective headphones. This prevents the second device from disconnecting the first device’s headphones.

Step 6: Check Volume and Audio Balance

Once both headphones have been connected, make sure the audio balance setting is set to “Center,” this way both pairs will receive equal amounts of sound. Likewise, adjust each pair individually as far as volume adjustments go.

Let that do it! With these steps, connecting multiple Bluetooth headphones to an iPhone should be simple enough so you can enjoy listening to music or watching a movie together without disrupting anyone else in your vicinity.

Use a third-party app:

Numerous third-party applications make sharing audio simple, even across networks. Most utilize Bluetooth or Wi-Fi technology for this process and may require both parties involved to have installed identical copies of this specific program on their respective devices to be effective.

Sharing audio on an iPad is generally straightforward and there are various approaches you can take depending on your requirements and those sharing. Simply find what works best for both of you, then enjoy your audio together!
