How to connect multiple sets of headphones or Bluetooth speakers to the same Android phone or iPhone? Bluetooth devices are now a standard, but when you want to get surround sound effects or share your music with others in the same location, for wired systems, all you have to do is buy a cheap audio splitter. It turns out that you can perform similar operations on Bluetooth connections in several ways.

Connecting multiple Bluetooth speakers or headphones largely depends on the device you have and the native Bluetooth version supported by your phone.

For example, Bluetooth v4.2 only supports one-to-one device connections up to 30 meters long. On the other hand, Bluetooth v5 extends the connection to 120 meters and allows you to pair up to two devices at a time. Some Bose speakers have their own audio applications that provide the ability to pair two speakers at the same time. However, not all companies provide this convenience.

How to connect two Bluetooth headsets and speakers to a mobile phone

Most mobile phones today allow dual audio (on Android) and audio sharing (on iPhone) functions, that is, the ability to play audio from two devices at the same time. iPhone 8 and above models support audio sharing, so unless you are using a very old phone, your phone should be able to provide this feature. The first step is to try to connect the headset and speaker to Bluetooth one by one during the first pairing.

Similarly, if you have a Samsung Galaxy S8 series or newer model, then the company natively provides dual audio options, allowing users to pair multiple speakers and headphones. This can be found in the Bluetooth settings. Other users can try this method, provided they have the right equipment on hand:

  1. Android users need to go Bluetooth settings And pair Bluetooth headsets or speakers one-to-one.

  2. After connecting, click Three point icon On the right and click advanced settings. Switch “Dual Audio” Options (if not already open). This should enable users to connect to two devices at the same time.

  3. For users running Android 10 and above, they can access their connected Bluetooth devices with one click media In the quick panel and select two paired devices for audio output.

  4. iPhone users need to go control center. Tap Play Icon, and then select the paired wireless headphones or speakers to output audio at the same time. Deselecting any headset or speaker will stop sharing audio on that particular device.
