How To Fix Mac Not Detecting Headphones

Hi everyone! You might be having an issue where your Mac is not detecting your headphones, so, let’s take a look at a few different ways you can fix this issue!

First of all, I would recommend making sure your headphones are completely connected/paired with your device, if your headphones aren’t connected properly, this is probably the issue. So, make sure your headphones are paired up properly to your Mac.

Next up, you want to make sure that your output device is set to your headphones, at times, your headphones may be paired up properly, but the output may not be set to your headphones, so, click on your sound preferences on your Mac, and make sure your headphones are selected.

Another thing you might want to do is restart your device, you wouldn’t believe how many issues can be resolved by restarting your device. On top of that, you might want to check if your device has an update available, you can make your way over to your software update panel, and check if there's an update.

There you have it! Do you know of any other ways to fix this issue? I would love to hear your thoughts about this!
