Has anyone been able to pair their W1-equipped Beats to non-Apple devices?

    I recently picked up a pair of Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones and I love them. They sound great and it's super convenient switching them out with all my apple products. But I also have a Samsung 4K TV that has the option to output sound via Bluetooth that I'd like to pair them with, but when I put my Beats into pairing mode they don't show up on my TV. Has anyone paired anything with Apple's W1 chip to non-Apple devices? Is that even possible?

    I don't have Beats, but I have successfully paired my W1-equipped Airpods to a Windows laptop.

    Ultimately they are just bluetooth headphones, so I can't think of any reason that they wouldn't show up for a device as long as they are properly placed in pairing mode

    I've paired solo 3s to an android phone. Make sure you are holding down the left button until all LEDs flash

    Have you been able to pair any other BT headphones to this TV?
