How to connect AirPods to PS4

Apple AirPods are a fantastic accessory that work flawlessly with your iPhone, Macbook, iPad and other devices, but why is it such a struggle to connect them to my PS4 or my PS4 Pro?

Thankfully there’s a cheap accessory to solve this and allow you to connect your AirPods / AirPods Pro to your PlayStation 4: the PS4 Wireless Bluetooth Dongle.
