What requirements do I need to get Bluetooth LE Audio without a dongle. I have Windows 11 Build 22631.3085. I a desktop PC with ASUS Maximus XI Hero Wi-Fi motherboard with Z390 chipset and I7-9900k CPU. I also have ASUS PCE-AX58BT Wi-Fi 6 adapter and disabled the built-in Wi-Fi 5 module from BIOS. Do I need a new motherboard with 14th Gen CPU to unlock Bluetooth LE Audio. Why are there only a few headphones with Bluetooth LE Audio? What would be the best brand of headphones to buy that include Bluetooth LE Audio and a USB dongle for PC's that don't have built-in support for Bluetooth LE Audio?

As near as I can find out, your motherboard supports Bluetooth 5.0, which supports Bluetooth LE. There is no need to buy a dongle, just enable blue tooth in BIOS and hook up the WiFi antennas and you should be good to go.

Your new WiFi 6 card also supports BLE as it supports Bluetooth 5.0. BLE has been supported since Bluetooth version 4.0.

If you want to check for yourself, follow this guide:


Scroll down to the Windows section and use Device Manager like it says in the article.
