Difficulty pairing Bluetooth headset

My bluetooth headset does not work with my latest bluetooth driver (it's the same for windows. I can connect another bluetooth device but I can't connect my headset. So the driver is definitely the problem) so I want to install my old version bluetooth driver to use it. is there any way i can do this? I searched on the internet but couldn't find it.
here is the terminal result below. Never completes the pairing. it just doesn't connect. I can connect to another device

bluetoothctl
Agent registered
[bluetooth]# power on
Changing power on succeeded
[bluetooth]# agent on
Agent is already registered
[bluetooth]# default-agent
Default agent request successful
[bluetooth]# scan on
Discovery started

[CHG] Device 14:43:19:E2:7B:43 Trusted: yes
Changing 14:43:19:E2:7B:43 trust succeeded
[bluetooth]# pair 14:43:19:E2:7B:43
Attempting to pair with 14:43:19:E2:7B:43
[bluetooth]#

I wouldn't be so sure. The first auto-complete entry in Whoogle for "TAOTRONICS SoundLiberty 53" is "won't pair".

This may be the crux of the issue. This is from your device manual:

Note: If you want to pair the earbuds with another device when you have already paired them with a device, deactivate the Bluetooth function on the paired device or clear TAOTRONICS Earbuds from its Bluetooth list. Restore the earbuds to factory settings as instructed above if pairing failed.

dude, my headset doesn't support two devices. so of course I'm trying to connect only and only to my computer at the same time. but regardless of linux or windows, when I want to connect my bluetooth mouse to the computer, I can connect it (both windows and garuda) but I cannot connect my headset. The only problem is that my headset cannot be connected due to the updated driver. I had the same problem when using windows and all I did was install an old version driver.

Try the factory reset described in your device manual.

You were asked on your last binned thread to post your garuda-inxi output.

Again in the dumper with your thread until you learn to adhere to our forum's posting guidelines, dude.

From the Arch Wiki:

Bluetooth pairing

When it comes to pairing Bluetooth devices with both the Linux and Windows installation, both systems have the same MAC address, but will use different link keys generated during the pairing process. This results in the device being unable to connect to one installation, after it has been paired with the other. To allow a device to connect to either installation without re-pairing, follow Bluetooth#Dual boot pairing.
