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).
  1. Unlock the screen of the smartphone.
  2. Set the NFC function of the smartphone to on.
  3. Touch the headset with the smartphone.
    • Confirm that the screen of the smartphone is unlocked.
    • Touch the smartphone on the N marked part of the headset. Keep touching the headset with the smartphone until the smartphone reacts.
    • Refer to the operating instructions of the smartphone for the designated location to be touched on the smartphone.

    Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the pairing and connection.

    When the headset is connected with the smartphone, the blue indicator starts flashing slowly.

    • To disconnect, touch the smartphone again.
    • To connect a paired smartphone, perform steps 2 and 3.


  • If you cannot connect the headset, try the following.
    • Unlock the screen of the smartphone, and move the smartphone slowly over the N marked part of the headset.
    • If the smartphone is in a case, remove the case.
  • If you touch an NFC-compatible smartphone with the headset, the smartphone terminates BLUETOOTH connection with any current device, and connects to the headset (One-touch connection switching).
