I’ve seen many people asking about how to connect headphones to the PS4, specifically how to connect Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds Plus to PS4? It’s fairly easy to use the wired headphones with the PS4, but when it comes to Bluetooth headphones, the process is a bit difficult or say tedious, however, anyone can do it. There are plenty of PS4 Compatible Bluetooth Headphones available to buy, if you own one of those, then it’s easy to pair the Bluetooth headphones to the DualShock PS4/PS4 using the native Bluetooth settings.
Well, if you’re not willing to spend extra bucks on PS4 Compatible Bluetooth Headphones, then use the Galaxy Buds with the PS4. Try the following stepwise guide, to use the Samsung Buds with the PS4 Controller, and see if that works.
How to Pair Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds Plus to the PS4 Controller
The tutorial is divided into three steps to keep it simple and understand better.
Step 1: Get Your USB Bluetooth Dongle
You’ll need to buy one of these USB Bluetooth Dongle for the PS4 to use Galaxy Buds with PS4. It’s not compulsory to have Avantree Leaf Bluetooth Dongle, it can work with any other compatible Bluetooth Dongle if you have one then try to use that. Otherwise, this is the best Bluetooth Dongle I’ve ever used with my PS4.
