Important Note on Wireless Range
The .Audio 995 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.
Move closer to the wireless adapter to restore clear
audio.

and should automatically connect with each
other. Should your headset and adapter become
unpaired, you can initiate pairing manually:
1 Press and hold the Power and Connect
buttons on the headset and adapter for 4
seconds.
The status lights on the headset and adapter
will rapidly flash blue.
2 The headset and adapter will automatically
attempt to pair.
If the pairing is successful the status lights will
glow solid blue; if unsuccessful, both headset
and adapter will stay in pairing mode.

to re-attempt the pairing process, you must first
take your headset and adapter out of pairing
mode.
