Have you just purchased a new pair of JBL earbuds and are wondering how to connect them to your Macbook? Connecting your JBL headphones to your laptop is easy. All you need is the right information and a few steps. Let’s get started! 

Step 1:

Locate the headphone jack on your Macbook. This will be located on the sides of your laptop, typically near the power button. Plug in your JBL headphones into this jack using the 3.5mm audio plug provided with the earbuds. 

Step 2:

Once you have inserted the plug into the headphone jack, you can start listening to music or podcasts through your JBL headphones. The sound should be coming through both ears, and if it is not, make sure that you have plugged the wires securely into their respective ports.  You may also check whether there is any dust blocking the connection between the headphone jack and its port by cleaning both with a soft cloth before inserting again.  

Step 3:

Adjust sound settings on your Macbook if necessary. To do this, go to “System Preferences” and then select “Sound” from the drop-down menu. Here you will find all of your audio settings including volume level, balance, and output device which is where you can choose which device (in this case, your JBLs) that you want to use for sound output. Make sure that it has been selected as “Headphones” or “JBL Earbuds” in order for it to work properly when connected with other devices like an iPod or iPhone.  


With only three simple steps outlined above, now you know how easy it is to connect JBL earbuds with a Macbook! Once they’re connected properly, sit back and enjoy high quality audio streaming from anywhere with no cords in sight! As an added bonus, any adjustments made in System Preferences will apply universally across all devices connected via Bluetooth so that sound quality remains consistent no matter what device you’re using! For Jbl owners out there who are looking for convenience without sacrificing quality sound – this is definitely one hack worth trying out!
