Making a call
You can enjoy hands-free calls with a BLUETOOTH mobile phone that supports the BLUETOOTH profile HFP (Hands-free Profile) or HSP (Headset Profile) via BLUETOOTH connection.
If your BLUETOOTH mobile phone supports both HFP and HSP, set it to HFP.
Operations may vary depending on the BLUETOOTH mobile phone. Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the mobile phone.
- Connect the neckband speaker with a BLUETOOTH mobile phone.
When a BLUETOOTH connection is established, you hear voice guidance (BLUETOOTH connected) from the neckband speaker and the indicator on the neckband speaker starts flashing in blue.
- Operate the BLUETOOTH mobile phone to make a call.
When you make a call, playback pauses and the dial tone is heard from the neckband speaker.
The neckband speaker is equipped with a built-in omnidirectional microphone. You can talk without considering the location of the microphone.
If no dial tone is heard via the neckband speaker
The neckband speaker may not be connected with a BLUETOOTH mobile phone with HFP or HSP. Check the connection status on the BLUETOOTH mobile phone.
Switch the call device to the neckband speaker by pressing and holding the(play/call) button for about 2 seconds.
- While the phone is ringing or a phone conversation is in progress, adjust the volume by pressing the -/+ (volume) buttons on the neckband speaker or operating the BLUETOOTH mobile phone.
To turn off the microphone
Press the(microphone off) button on the neckband speaker.
While a phone conversation is in progress, pressing the(microphone off) button triggers voice guidance (Mic OFF) indicating that the microphone is turned off*. When you press the button once again, you hear voice guidance (Mic ON) indicating that the microphone is turned on.
*The state that the microphone is turned off is indicated by the notification sound emitted at intervals of 7 seconds.
- To end a call, press the(play/call) button.
If you were listening to music before the call, playback will resume when the call ends. If you end a call by operating the BLUETOOTH mobile phone, playback will also resume when the call ends if you were listening to music before the call.
The volume for music playback and the volume for phone talking are set independently on the neckband speaker. Changing the volume during a phone conversation does not affect the volume for music playback.
Depending on the BLUETOOTH mobile phone, playback may not pause when making a call.
Use a BLUETOOTH mobile phone at least 50 cm (1.6 ft) away from the neckband speaker. Noise may result if the neckband speaker and the BLUETOOTH mobile phone are too close.
The microphone off function works for the microphone on the neckband speaker. It does not affect the microphone settings of the software on your smartphone or computer.
