iPhone users might not want to exclusively use Apple accessories with their phones.
While Apple knows how to make some killer earbuds, they might be outside of your budget or just don’t have the specs that you are looking for.
That is where JLab’s headphones and earbuds might start to appeal to you.
Let’s say you own an iPhone 11 and want to invest in the sleek JBuds Metal in-Ear Earbuds with a built-in universal microphone.
Can you pair these Bluetooth earbuds with your iPhone? How about the JLab Audio JBuddies Studio headphones? Are those able to be paired up with your phone?
The cool thing about headphone and earbud technology these days is that most of them are manufactured to be compatible with both iPhones and Android phones, so there is not too much exclusivity to be found.
You can essentially pick your headphones or earbuds and pair them up with your phone using Bluetooth technology.
Of course, the case with iPhones (starting with the iPhone 7) is that you cannot plug in a wired headset or earbuds, so you do have to go wireless.

How do I connect my JLab headphones to my iPhone?
Want to pair your JLab headphones to your iPhone? The pairing process is fairly simple.
You will first need to go into your iPhone’s Settings and then find the Bluetooth menu.

Why wont my JLab headphones connect to my iPhone?
Of course, technology does not always work when we want or need it to.
Your JLab headphones might not connect properly to your iPhone on the first try.
The first thing you need to do is check and make sure that you have, in fact, enabled Bluetooth.
If you have Bluetooth disabled, then there is no way that these two devices will pair up.
Try turning Bluetooth on, letting it search for Bluetooth devices, and pairing them up.
There is always the potential for something in the immediate environment to be causing interference.
This isn’t terribly common, but it does happen.
Move away from anything that emits strong radio waves, like your microwave.
How do I make my JLab headphones discoverable?
Your Bluetooth headphones will need to be discoverable so that your iPhone can find them when scanning for Bluetooth devices that are nearby.
Ensure that your Bluetooth is enabled on your phone so that it can search.
Here is how you can accomplish this:
- From your iPhone, go into Settings > Bluetooth, then turn on Bluetooth. Remain on this screen until you get through all of the steps to pair your iPhone with your headphones.
- Make sure that your headphones are in discovery mode and wait for them to appear on your iPhone’s list of Bluetooth devices. If you are unsure about how to make it discoverable or do not see your JLab headphones on the list, read through the instructions that came with your JLab headphones or contact JLab’s customer support services for further assistance.
- When you are ready to pair these devices, tap on your JLab headphones’ name after it appears on the screen. You might be asked to enter the PIN or passcode. You will need to check your documentation if you are unsure of your passcode or PIN. In many cases, it is necessary to input one.
Do any Bluetooth headphones work with iPhone?
Apple makes it so that Bluetooth headphones – and other Bluetooth accessories, of course – are able to work with even their older iPhone models.
Trust me, I run them on an old iPhone 7 with no problem and love the ease of pairing third-party Bluetooth-enabled devices with my prized ol’ iPhone.
Why won’t my iPhone find my Bluetooth devices?
Ensure that your iPhone’s Bluetooth is toggled to ‘ON’.
Your iPhone should also be placed close enough to the headphones for it to be able to detect them.
Try moving them closer together and see if the iPhone picks up on the headphones.
You might also need to turn your headphones off and on again.
Your Bluetooth headphones should be turned on and fully charged or connected to a power source so that the iPhone can pick up on them.
JLab’s Bluetooth headphones are made to work with both iPhones and Androids.
You can basically mix and match as you please since Bluetooth is now the gold standard for phone accessories.
If for some reason you are left struggling to get them to pair, try contacting JLab and ask a customer service rep for further assistance.
Otherwise, pair ’em up and enjoy listening to your favorite Apple Music tunes, Spotify jams, or podcasts.
