How to connect your AirPods to a Peloton

Connect your AirPods to your Peloton bike following these simple steps.

If you're lucky enough to have a Peloton bike, you know they come with all sorts of high-end frills. But what about connecting your Peloton bike to wireless headphones?

While it's not as easy to pair them as it would be on an Apple device (AirPods automatically pair with Apple devices when the case is opened), you can still connect your Apple AirPods to your Peloton. Here's how:

Making the connection

Maybe your Peloton is set up in a community space that can get noisy, or you just want to get lost in the music. Whatever your reason, it's easy to pair your AirPods to your Peloton and groove your way through cardio.

According to Peloton, you can connect in a few simple steps:

  1. Make sure your AirPods aren't connected to any other device and that their Bluetooth option is enabled. They should be disconnected from everything, even your phone, for this to work.

  2. With the AirPods in the case and the lid open, hold the button on the back of the case until the amber light starts blinking â€" about three to five seconds. This will reset your AirPods, which you need to do in order for them to pair with a non-Apple device. Once they're reset, you can put them back into pairing mode and try to pair them with your Peloton's touchscreen.

  3. Close the lid to your AirPods case. On your Peloton's touchscreen, you should see a list of available Bluetooth devices to pair with in the Bluetooth menu (get there by going to Settings, then Bluetooth).

  4. Find "AirPod" or the custom name you've given your AirPods, in the list of available Bluetooth devices and click on it. After a few seconds, you should see the status change to "paired."

  5. Go back to the Featured page by tapping on the Peloton logo in the lower center of the touchscreen.

  6. Choose a ride to test the connection and make sure your AirPods are connected and working. Adjust the volume to a good level.

After that you should be good to go. If you're still having trouble connecting, you can try resetting the connection and pairing your AirPods again.

Keep in mind that since your Peloton isn't an Apple device, you won't be able to use features like Siri while your AirPods are paired to your bike. You will be able to listen to Peloton's audio through your wireless headphones, though. Also, you'll need to use the volume controls on the Peloton to change the volume in your AirPods.

One last thing: Make sure you disconnect your AirPods when you're finished! If someone else is using the Peloton with their AirPods and you open your AirPod case within pairing range, the Peloton will connect with your AirPods instead and kick the person on the bike off the connection.
