So you’ve just purchased a set of Sennheiser earbuds and want to know how to connect them to your laptop? No problem! We’re here to help. In this blog post, we’ll show you step-by-step how to easily connect your new earbuds so you can start using them right away. 

Step 1: Check the Ports 

The first thing you need to do is check the ports on your laptop. This will determine which type of cable you need in order to connect your Sennheiser earbuds. If you have an older laptop, it may only have a 3.5mm headphone jack. You will need a 3.5mm-to-3.5mm male audio cable in order to connect your earbuds to this type of port. However, if your laptop has a USB Type-C port, then all you will need is a USB Type-C-to-3.5mm male audio cable in order to connect your earbuds. 

Step 2: Connect the Cable 

Once you have determined what type of cable is needed, it’s time to plug it into both the laptop and the earbud device itself. Start by plugging one end of the cable into the headphone jack on your laptop (or into the Type-C port if that’s what you are using). Then plug the other end of the cable into the 3.5mm port on your Sennheiser earbud device. Make sure that both ends are securely connected before proceeding with step three. 

Step 3: Set Up Audio Settings 

Now that everything is plugged in and ready to go, it’s time for some final configuration steps so that sound will come out of your earbuds when they are connected. On Windows machines, go into “Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Manage Audio Devices” and make sure that “Sennheiser Earphones” is selected as the default playback device for both speakers and headphones (you may need to click “Show Disabled Devices” in order for them to appear). For Mac users, open up System Preferences > Sound > Output and make sure that “Sennheiser Headphones” is selected as your output device (again, you may need to click “Show All Devices” in order for them to appear). Once everything is set up correctly, plug in those earbuds and enjoy!  


Connecting a new pair of Sennheiser earbuds doesn’t have be difficult or intimidating! With just a few simple steps—checking ports, connecting cables, setting audio settings—you can get up and running quickly with quality sound streaming directly from your laptop straight into those sweet little ears! Now get out there and enjoy those tunes!
