Pairing with bluetooth headphones

Hello there, I am very happy to be a new member of the community!
I have received the new Kindle Paperwhite for my birthday last month, and I finally managed to have my audible collection on it. However I can't pair my brand new Sony WH-1000XM3 with it, as the list of available connected bluetooth devices shows nothing. I have already tried to switch the Kindle on and off - even resetted it to factory settings. Both kindle and headphones firmware are up to date.
I would appreciate your help on that issue!
Best regards,
Geneviève

you generally have to activate the blue tooth on the head phones, unusually by holding the button down for 5 / 10 seconds,

Hello Jobo,
Thank you for your fast answer. You were right, I was not pressing long enough on the button - this one needs at least 7 seconds. I feel really embarrassed.

So I can confirm that the Sony LDAC codec - bluetooth headphones are compatible with the Kindle Paperwhite to listen to audiobooks!
Thank you for your help,
Best regards, 
Geneviève
