Pairing Instructions for All Bluetooth Models

Article ID : 000009272

I don't know the model of my Plantronics Bluetooth headset. How can I pair it to my cell phone or other mobile device?

Procedure

All current Plantronics Bluetooth headsets fall into one of three categories: headsets that have a single button for call control and power, headsets that have a sliding on/off switch, and headsets that have a on/off button. Instructions for each are provided below. Note that some legacy/obsolete headsets are exceptions to this rule. Those headsets are listed at the bottom of this article and are linked to their specific pairing instructions.
Headsets that have a sliding on/off/pairing switch

Examples:

  1. To put your headset in pair mode, press and hold the power switch towards the Bluetooth icon
    until you hear "pairing" and the headset LEDs flash red and blue.
  2. Release the button and set the headset aside.
  3. Activate Bluetooth on your phone and set it to search for new devices. If prompted for a passkey, enter 0000 (four zeros). Note: Do not be alarmed if your phone does not prompt you for a passkey, because many phones do not. 
 
 
Headsets that have a single button for call control and power

Examples:

  3. Release the button and set the headset aside.
  4. Follow the pairing instructions for your cell phone or other Bluetooth device.
  5. If prompted for a passkey, enter 0000 (four zeros). Note: Do not be alarmed if your phone does not prompt you for a passkey, because many phones do not.
