If you play online on the PlayStation 4 system you will certainly need a pair of headphones to be able to communicate with your friends during your multiplayer games. Do you have a pair of Apple earphones? In this guide we will show you how to connect AirPods Pro or AirPods to your PS4.
Apple earphones can be connected to our PlayStation 4 without too many problems and be used for all the online features of the Sony console, without giving up the pleasure of talking with your friends during your games. The Sony license plate console unfortunately makes a lot of obstruction to third-party devices, with the intention of course to push towards the purchase of its products; however thanks to a small device it is possible to connect Apple earphones to your console without any kind of problem.
The solution is called Airfly, produced by Twelve South, or a little one bluetooth receiver to be connected directly to the controller of your console via the jack connector dedicated (but it can also be connected to any other device equipped with an aux connector). This device is equipped with a internal rechargeable battery can guarantee up to 16 hours of use and is available in two versions Pro and Duo; both work in the same way but the Pro model can also act as a receiver when used with the car stereo or other audio equipment. For the purposes of a PS4, however, there is no difference between the two products.
Once connected to your joypad you will need a few simple steps to pair your AirPods or AirPods Pro:
- Connect the AirFly device to the PS4 controller via the jack connector
- If using AirFly Pro, make sure it is in transmission mode (TX) and hold the button for four seconds until the light flashes
- Open the case of your AirPods (keeping them stored in their slots), press and hold the pairing button on the back of the case of your AirPods
- Now wait for the pairing. When the process is complete, the AirPods status light will light up green (or amber depending on the state of charge) and AirFly will light up white.
At this point your AirPods will finally be connected and you can also use them with your PlayStation 4. To purchase the device, all you have to do is go to the Twelve South website and proceed to purchase AirFLy
