Plug the wireless adapter into a USB port on your system. The wireless adapter flashes blue
then turns solid blue to indicate the headset is connected to your system.

Range
During a call, lift the boom to a full stop to mute the microphone.
CAUTION Do not force the boom past its upper or lower limits.
The headset has a wireless range of up to 40 feet. However, wireless performance may be
affected by nearby objects including walls, metal items, and other wireless devices. When you
move the headset to the edge of its wireless range, audio may become distorted and will
eventually cut out (the wireless adapter flashes blue when out of range). Move closer to the
wireless adapter to restore clear audio.
NOTE If your headset and adapter are separated and lose their connection after being successfully
paired, they automatically reconnect when they come back into range of each other. If they remain
out of range for more than 30 seconds, the headset goes into sleep mode, but reconnects
automatically with the adapter once it is back in range. If the headset is out of range for more than
15 minutes, it automatically shuts off.
