How to make a wireless connection to BLUETOOTH devices

You can enjoy music and hands-free calling with the headset wirelessly by using your device’s BLUETOOTH function.

How to connect devices via the BLUETOOTH function differs depending on whether or not the device supports one-touch connection (NFC).

Connecting the headset to a device that supports one-touch connection (NFC)

By touching the headset to an NFC-compatible smartphone, the headset turns on automatically and then makes a BLUETOOTH connection. Touching the headset to the smartphone again will disconnect the connection.

Compatible smartphones

NFC-compatible smartphones with Android 2.3.3 or later installed (excluding Android 3.x)


NFC (Near Field Communication) is a technology enabling short-range wireless communication between various devices, such as smartphones and IC tags. Thanks to the NFC function, data communication - for example, BLUETOOTH pairing - can be achieved easily by simply touching NFC-compatible devices together (i.e., at the N Mark symbol or location designated on each device).

Pairing with a BLUETOOTH device

Pairing is the process required to create a link between BLUETOOTH devices to allow wireless connection.

You must pair a device with the headset before you start using the headset.

Connecting the headset to a paired device

Once BLUETOOTH devices are paired, there is no need to pair them again. Connect a device already paired by the method that applies for that device.
