About Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that uses a frequency of 2.4 GHz to connect
to various devices over short distances. It can connect and exchange data with Bluetooth
devices, such as mobile devices, computers, printers, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and
other digital home appliances, without connecting via cables.
Bluetooth Profiles
The Bluetooth profile sets the available features and communication requirements for
Bluetooth devices. Below are the types of Bluetooth profiles for the headset.
• Headset Profile (HSP): Allows basic communication between a headset and connected
mobile device, including receiving/ending calls and adjusting volume.
• Hands-Free Profile (HFP): Allows extra communication between a headset and
connected mobile device, including last number redial, call waiting or voice dialling.
• Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP): Allows music streaming from a connected
Bluetooth device to a headset.
• Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP): Allows remote control of playback
functions for a connected Bluetooth device from a headset.
Available functions may vary depending on the profile. For supported Bluetooth
profiles, see “Specifications”.

Using the headset
Optimal usage conditions
To ensure you get the best performance from the headset:
• Do not block or create a barrier between the devices. Human body can interfere with the
Bluetooth signal.
• Do not touch the transmitting/receiving part of the connected device.
• When pairing the headset with other devices, place the devices close together.
Depending on the user environment, noise problem or malfunction might occur.
• Bluetooth uses the same frequency as low power devices, such as industrial, scientific,
medical devices, electronic devices or wireless LANs. Move the headset away from these
devices, as they may interfere with each other.
• To improve range, use the headset in places without intervening obstacles. Obstacles
such as walls, corners or furniture weaken the signal.
• When calling through the headset, sound quality might drop, as the distance from
the connected mobile device increases. If two devices are too far from each other, the
connection is lost and the call is transferred to the mobile device.
• Conversation might be interrupted when calling in a loud environment, such as outside
or where there is a lot of background noise.
Some devices, especially those that are not tested or approved by Bluetooth SIG, may
not be compatible with the headset.
Pairing and connecting the headset
When using a new mobile device, you need to pair it with the headset. Once pairing is

Frequently asked questions
Question
The headset does not
fully charge.
I cannot use all the
features described in
the manual.
Will my headset work
with laptops, PCs, and
PDAs?
Why do I hear an echo
while on a call?
Why do I hear static or
interference while on
a call?
Will my headset
interfere with my car’s
electronics, radio, or
computer?
Can other Bluetooth
phone users hear my
conversation?
How do I clean my
headset?
Answer
The headset and the charger may not have been connected
properly. Separate the headset from the charger, reconnect, and
charge the headset.
Available features may vary depending on the connected
device. If your headset is connected to two devices at the same
time, some features may be unavailable.
Your headset will work with devices that support your headset’s
Bluetooth version and profiles.
Adjust the headset volume, or move to another area and try
again.
Appliances such as cordless phones and wireless networking
equipment may cause interference, which usually sounds like
static. To reduce any interference, keep the headset away from
other devices that use or produce radio waves.
Your headset uses significantly less power than a typical mobile
phone. It also only emits signals that are in compliance with the
international Bluetooth standard. You should not experience
interference with standard consumer-grade electronics
equipment.
When you pair your headset to your Bluetooth phone, you
are creating a private link between only these two devices.
The wireless Bluetooth technology used in your headset is not
easily monitored by third parties because Bluetooth wireless
signals use significantly lower radio frequency power than those
produced by a typical mobile phone.
Wipe it with a soft dry cloth.
