It's early morning, here and I'll need a magnifying glass to determine the product number of the headphones given to me, sans box, yesterday. All I can currently say about 'em is that they're an RRP of roughly USD 80 or 90.

I've turned on bluetooth, via the Control Cebtre, but now have no idea what to do to add 'em or enable 'em to be used.

You'll appreciate that I'd like to use 'em whilst occupying a bed in a 4 person room here in the Caboolture Hospital.

All help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

On the headphones themselves they either have the Bluetooth symbol on them somewhere, just press and hold that until the power LED starts flashing/pulsing; or if there is no Bluetooth button, turn them off and then press and hold the power button until the LED flashes/pulses?
Don't really know the model you have, but that's what I've done for the several pairs I've owned from various brands.

...looks like the product number is MDR-ZX22067...anyway, press and hold has 'em flashin' red & blue...now I seem to be missin' somethin' else...there's nothing in Sound Prefs to suggest changing to a certain, or bluetooth output...

...please bear in mind that I'm basically a techno neanderthal...I know the 'phones are kinda workin' 'cos they just told me that the Power is off...also that this is the first time I've ever tried to use Bluetooth...

...is there a button on my Aspire E-17 ES-771G-7134 that I should enable?...

...thanks Auswels...
