What is NFC?

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 if it is locked.
  2. Turn on the smartphone’s NFC function.
    1. Select [Settings] - [Device connection].

    2. Touch the switch to turn on the NFC function.

  3. Remove the headset from the charging case.

    The headset turns on automatically.

  4. Touch the smartphone with the charging case.
    • Touch the smartphone on the N-Mark of the charging case. Keep touching the smartphone with the charging case 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 indicator (blue) starts flashing slowly.

    When you are wearing the headset, you will hear the voice guidance say, “Bluetooth connected” from the left unit.

    • To disconnect, touch the smartphone again with the charging case.
    • To connect a paired smartphone, perform step 4.
    • Unlock the screen of the smartphone if it is locked.


  • The operation above is an example. For more details, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the Android smartphone.
  • If you cannot connect the headset, try the following.
    • Unlock the screen of the smartphone if it is locked, and move the smartphone slowly over the N-Mark.
    • If the smartphone is in a case, remove the case.
    • Check that the Bluetooth function of the smartphone is enabled.
  • If you touch an NFC-compatible smartphone connected to another NFC-compatible device with the charging case, the smartphone terminates the Bluetooth connection with any current devices, and connects to the headset via one-touch (NFC) (One-touch connection switching).
  • When the headset is placed in the charging case or the headset power is off, you cannot turn on the headset with the one-touch connection (NFC function) to connect the headset with the smartphone. Remove the headset from the charging case to turn it on. In the case the headset is already removed from the charging case, press and hold the button on the headset for about 2 seconds or put on the headset.
