    Need help to re-add my Playback Device named "Headphones"


    Someone please tell me how to add back my Playback device Bluetooth named "headphones"

    I just purchased a new Song Headphone MDR-ZX770BT and it is working fine via Bluetooth as I am now using them as , control panel, sound, playback, device, "headset"

    Today I made a mistake and deleted the other name "headphones" in the settings.

    Thanks for your help and see attached graphic of what I see now.
    Thanks so much..... Cliff M. acmnanten

    Did you delete the device or disable it from the UI you're showing there?

    Have you tried Settings/Devices/Bluetooth and see if headphones can be discovered?

    Is there anyway to have the DEFAULT Device to turn-back-on again without having to re-connect it everytime the headphone is used ?????

    Thanks.. Cliff M.
