Go settings - system - Reset Options

 

Select Reset Wi-Fi, Mobile & Bluetooth

 

Reconnect the bluetooth device - works for me

Re: Couldn't pair with xxxx Because of an incorrect PIN or Passkey

You say no duplicate questions but I feel you never answered the question correctly. How do I get my android phone to pair with the Tile when it's asking for a pin but no where to put the pin. Settings-apps-all-smartconnect-clear-data-restart phone does not work. Once I hit 'all apps' it just gives me option to disable. No 'smart connect'. Could you be more clear with your remedy?

Go to the app manager and select view services then clear the data in everything that has the name bluetooth in it.

Had same issue. This is what worked for me

1. Go to Settings > Backup and Reset > Network settings reset.

2. Tap on Reset Settings option

3. Now try to connect the Bluetooth device again.

This won't help for headphones but to connect to my win7 pc I had the same problem, I got it working by going into bluetooth device control (click show bluetooth devices from the system tray icon on the taskbar, click on your phone) scroll down to authorization options and select always from the options, new devices will still have to pair with an ok from the pc but then auto connect.
