Trying to record through laptop mic while listening to my track on Bluetooth headphones

Hi all, first time poster here. I’m a lo-fi musician, no big fancy setup, but I would like to record into my laptop’s mic while listening to my backing track through Bluetooth headphones. Obviously this is to prevent audio bleed through on the vocal track - my question is, how would I configure that along the top? It seems as though if I had headphones that plugged in directly it may actually make this easier but sadly I don’t have that option at the moment. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

After getting your headphones to work with your computer, start Audacity (else, Transport > Rescan Audio Devices). Audio Setup, then select your headphones as the playback device. You can try MME and WASAPI. Some bluetooth drivers are flaky - that is a technical term, and they will not work reliably. Some people can get their headphones to work by rebooting their computer and/or disconnecting other bluetooth devices.
