    Windows 10 doesn't Recognize Sony WH-CH700N headphones as an Audio Device


    Hello, I just bought Sony WH-CH700N headphones and they paired with my Dell XPS Destktop running Windows 10. The problem I'm facing is that they don't play any sound, video, or anything. My PC doesn't recognize it as an audio device. When I go to Sound and Playback, they are there but show as disconnected. I tried unpairing them and pairing them again many times, but didn't fix anything. I tried the Troubleshoot on Sound and Bluetooth, but didn't do anything. I tried to reset the headphones to factory settings, also nothing. More importantly, they worked with other devices and smartphones. Like I said, the problem seems that the Windows 10 (which up to date) doesn't see them as an audio device (headphones, headset). and I got old bluetooth headphones that still work and show as a headphones device.

    Any solution for weird problem?

    :)

    Bose wireless headphones not recognized.

    Remove headphones from Device Manager

    Sometimes there might be issues with Bose Bluetooth headphones on Windows 10, but users reported that this issue can be fixed simply by removing your headphones from Device Manager. To do that, follow these steps:

    Press Windows Key + X and choose Device Manager from the list.

    device-manager

    Locate your headphones in Device Manager, right click them and choose Uninstall.

    uninstall-driver

    After you’ve deleted Bose headphones from Device Manager, they should appear as headphones in Bluetooth devices list. Try pairing your PC with Bose headphones, but if the pairing doesn’t work you’ll need to delete the headphones’ memory. To do that, follow
    these steps:

    On your Bose headphones slide the Power button up to the Bluetooth symbol and hold it there for 10 seconds.

    Now headphones should appear in the Bluetooth devices list, and you’ll be able to connect them to your PC.

    Some users are suggesting that you don’t need to delete the device from Device Manager, you just have to delete the headphones’ memory by following the instructions above.

    Solution 2 – Uninstall your audio driver and install the latest audio driver

    If you’re using wired Bose headphones, you might want to try removing your audio driver in order to fix any potential issues. To remove an audio driver, just go to Device Manager, locate your audio driver, right click it and choose Uninstall. After uninstalling
    the audio driver, it’s recommended to go to your motherboard or sound card manufacturer’s website and download the latest audio driver.

    Few users also suggest installing audio drivers by using the compatibility mode. To do that, follow these steps:

    Locate the audio driver setup file and right click it. Choose Properties

    Navigate to Compatibility tab and check Run this program in compatibility mode for.

    Select one of the previous versions of Windows, for example Windows 7, and click Apply and OK to save changes.

    Run the setup file and install the latest audio drivers.

    Use a Bluetooth adapter / update your Bluetooth drivers

    Problems with Bose headphones can be caused by Bluetooth drivers, so make sure that they are up to date before connecting Bose Bluetooth headphones. If you have the latest drivers, but the problem still persists, you might want to use a Bluetooth adapter. Users
    reported that after buying a Bluetooth adapter and installing the necessary drivers the issue was resolved. While buying a Bluetooth adapter, make sure to choose one that comes with with a driver CD in order to avoid any further Bluetooth issues.
