How To Pair Onn Headphones

How To Pair Onn Headphones

Onn headphones are budget headphones. They are the ideal choice for those that may not have huge amounts of cash to spend on their headphones, but also don’t want to go so cheap that sound quality is severely impacted. The problem with Onn headphones is that it can be tricky to find out information about them. This includes information on pairing your Onn headphones to your audio device.

On this page, we are going to teach you how to Onn Bluetooth headphones. Do bear in mind that the process can vary a little bit based upon the device that you are connecting to. However, we will give just enough to ensure that you can adapt this information to suit your audio source.

Step 1: Turn Bluetooth On  

Your first job is to turn the Bluetooth on your audio device on. This may be on by default with most devices. If you are pairing to an Android or iOS device, follow these instructions.


  1. Open up ‘Settings‘.
  2. Select ‘Bluetooth‘.
  3. Switch Bluetooth to ‘on’.


  1. Click ‘Settings‘.
  2. Select ‘Bluetooth‘.
  3. Turn Bluetooth on.

Step 2: Switch the Headphones to Pairing Mode

You now need to switch your headphones to pairing mode.

This ensures that your headphones will be discoverable by audio devices. If the headphones are not switched to pairing, then you won’t be able to connect to them.

While most Bluetooth headphones on the market have a dedicated pairing button, Onn headphones do not. Instead, hold the power button in for a few seconds. When the light on the headphones starts to flash, you know that pairing mode has been turned on.

Step 3: Pair The Bluetooth Headphones 

Now that the devices are switched to pairing mode, the actual pairing part should be easy.

Do bear in mind that while some Bluetooth headphones will have passwords to connect them up properly, Onn headphones do not. If you are asked for a password, then enter 0000. If that doesn’t work, then Google your Onn model number. There is a chance that you have an older device that has a password, although these are rare.

Android and iOS devices

Open up the ‘Bluetooth‘ menu, much in the same way that you did when you turned Bluetooth on.

After a few seconds, your Onn headphones should appear on the list. Click it to complete the pairing.

Windows Computers

On Windows 10, you will need to follow these instructions:

  1. Open ‘Start‘.
  2. Select ‘Settings‘.
  3. Select ‘Bluetooth; devices‘.
  4. If Bluetooth is turned off, switch it on now.
  5. Select ‘Add Device‘.
  6. Wait for your Onn headphones to pair.

Remember, most computers will not have Bluetooth built into them. If you do not see Bluetooth, then your computer does not have any Bluetooth connectivity. If you wish to add a Bluetooth device to your computer, you will need to pick yourself up a Bluetooth dongle.

Mac Computers 

Most Mac computers will have Bluetooth connectivity, so you won’t run into the same issues that you have with a Windows computer:

  1. Press the Apple Menu.
  2. System Preferences.
  3. Bluetooth.
  4. If Bluetooth is not switched on, then turn it on now.
  5. After a few seconds, your Bluetooth headphones will appear. Click them to connect.

What Does It Mean if I Can’t Pair My Onn Headphones?

Chances are that you won’t run into too many issues pairing up your Onn headphones. It is a pretty easy process. However, we know that some people do run into issues. In this section, we will teach you how to resolve them.

Your Device Can’t Find Your Onn Headphones

If your device can’t find your Onn headphones, then we suggest that you head back to steps 1 and 2. Either your headphones are not switched to pairing mode, or your device doesn’t have Bluetooth switched on.

In rare cases, it may be because your headphones are too far away from the audio source. You should never have more than a few feet between the two.

The Audio in Your Onn Headphones Is Crackly or Has Other Sound Issues

If there are audio issues with the headphones, then this likely means that the headphones are on their last legs. Remember, they are budget headphones. They won’t last forever.

In rare cases, there may be interference between the audio device and the headphones. This normally happens if the audio source is next to a metal object or something that gives off a wireless signal e.g. a router.

The Pairing Fails 

This is a trickier problem to diagnose.

In some cases, it may be because the headphones are broken. Not much that you can do about this.

In other cases, it may be because the headphones are paired to another nearby device. Try switching your headphones to pairing mode again and see if that fixes the issue.
