Can I Change The Display Name Of Bluetooth Headset?

Dell / Xps 8930
July 17, 2020 at 07:39:58
Specs: Windows 10, I5-9400
Equipment: One Pixel 2, Two identical Jabra Bluetooth headsets

Question: Is there any way to change the display name of a Bluetooth headset so that I can distinguish between 2 identical devices? My guess is no, since it's internal to the headset.

Thanks!

Depends on what level of change you want... But this link may be oe option?

and if you trawl around the bottom of the duck pond using"

change the name of bluetooth headset?

as search term/string...

You'll find a few more...

I use dudckduckgo.com in preferences to google... It doesn't track you nor gather data about you and sell it on...

Thanks for the link, but I'm trying to change the display name on a Pixel 2 phone, not Windows 10.

I did get one hit via a web search that required physically opening up the headset and wiring in an Arduino UNO and then hacking into the control board of the headset. That might be a little tough with a set of earbuds. :-)

Yes I saw one of those hits re’ digging into the innards to do what you want. Not something to be entered into lightly.

Most of these mini items are designed to left alone; unless one is really adept at micro technology servicing....

Sorry for my misinterpretation of your post.

I don't know enough about Bluetooth to really be helpful,
but maybe you can distinguish the two headsets by some
other bit of information that your Pixel has about them,
such as the time each signal was first detected. If you
can get the info to display when you need it.

If it's running the Android operating system similar to the Samsungs, here's how to to it.
Swipe down from the top of the screen to get the the icons that let you turn bluetooth off and on.
Hold your finger on the bluetooth icon until it brings up the list of bluetooth devices that have connected to your phone.
Press the gear icon thats to the right of the Jabra listing.
On the settings screen for your Jabra, there should be an option down at the bottom to rename the device.

THX 1138:

Close. (Thanks!)

I never knew about the "long hold" process to bring up the list. (Thanks!) At the top, next the "Device details" title, there a pencil icon. Click that, change name.

Did I say Thanks?
