    Pairing steps

    Select the appropriate headphones type or model for pairing instructions:

    Step 1. Enter the headphones into pairing mode

    The following descriptions are just examples. For more details, refer to the Help Guide.

    • When you pair the headphones with a device for the first time or after initializing, the headphones automatically enter the pairing mode when you remove them from the charging case. If you put on the headphones, you will hear a notification sound and the voice guidance saying Bluetooth pairing from the left unit.
    • To pair the headphones with a second device:
      1. Press and hold the Power button for at least 7 seconds when turning the headphones on, to put the headphones in pairing mode before you pair the headphones with the device.
      2. The indicator flashes and you will hear the voice guidance saying Bluetooth pairing.

      Note: If the pairing is not finished within 5 minutes, the pairing mode on the headphones is canceled. If this happens, place the headphones into the charging case again and start the operation from the beginning.
