1. Introduction
With the Nokia Bluetooth Stereo Headset BH-504, you can make and
answer calls hands-free with your compatible mobile phone and listen
to music from a compatible music player.
You can use the headset with compatible devices that support
Bluetooth wireless technology.
Read this user guide carefully before using the headset. Also, read the
user guide for the device that you connect to the headset. For more
information, see or your local Nokia website.
The product may contain small parts. Keep them out of the reach of
small children.
■ Bluetooth wireless technology
Bluetooth wireless technology allows
you to connect compatible devices
without cables. The headset and the
other device do not need to be in line
of sight, but they should be within 10
metres (33 feet) of each other. The
closer the headset and the other
device are to each other, the better
the performance. The optimal
operating range is shown in dark grey
in the picture. The connection is
subject to interference from distance and obstructions (shown in light
grey) or other electronic devices.
The headset is compliant with the Bluetooth Specification 2.1 + EDR
supporting the following profiles: Headset Profile 1.1, Hands-Free
Profile (HFP) 1.5, Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) 1.0, and
Audio Video Remote Control Profile 1.0. Check with the manufacturers
of other devices to determine their compatibility with this device.

■ Charge the battery
Before charging the battery, carefully read “Battery and charger
information”, p. 11.
Warning: Use only chargers approved by Nokia for use with this
particular model. The use of any other types may invalidate any
approval or warranty, and may be dangerous.
When you disconnect the power cord of any accessory, grasp and pull the plug,
not the cord.
1. Connect the charger to a wall outlet.
2. Connect the charger cable to the charger connector. The red
indicator light is displayed during charging.

Battery and charger information
4. Battery and charger information
This device has an internal, nonremovable, rechargeable battery. Do not attempt
to remove the battery from the device as you may damage the device. This device
is intended for use when supplied with power from the following chargers: AC-4,
AC-5, AC-8, DC-4, and DC-9. The exact charger model number may vary
depending on the type of plug. The plug variant is identified by one of the
following: E, EB, X, AR, U, A, C, or UB. The battery can be charged and discharged
hundreds of times, but it will eventually wear out. Recharge your battery only
with Nokia approved chargers designated for this device. Use of an unapproved
charger may present a risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard.
If a battery is being used for the first time or if the battery has not been used for a
prolonged period, it may be necessary to connect the charger, then disconnect
and reconnect it to begin charging the battery. If the battery is completely
discharged, it may take several minutes before the charging indicator light is
Unplug the charger from the electrical plug and the device when not in use. Do
not leave a fully charged battery connected to a charger, since overcharging may
shorten its lifetime. If left unused, a fully charged battery will lose its charge over
Always try to keep the battery between 15°C and 25°C (59°F and 77°F). Extreme
temperatures reduce the capacity and lifetime of the battery. A device with a hot
or cold battery may not work temporarily. Battery performance is particularly
limited in temperatures well below freezing.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire as they may explode. Batteries may also
explode if damaged.
Never use any charger that is damaged.
Important: Operating times are estimates only and depend on network
conditions, features used, battery age and condition, temperatures to
which battery is exposed, and many other factors.
Care and maintenance
Care and maintenance
Your device is a product of superior design and craftsmanship and should be
treated with care. The following suggestions will help you protect your warranty
• Keep the device dry. Precipitation, humidity, and all types of liquids or
moisture can contain minerals that will corrode electronic circuits. If your
device does get wet, allow it to dry completely.
• Do not use or store the device in dusty, dirty areas. Its moving parts and
electronic components can be damaged.
• Do not store the device in hot areas. High temperatures can shorten the life of
electronic devices, damage batteries, and warp or melt certain plastics.
• Do not store the device in cold areas. When the device returns to its normal
temperature, moisture can form inside the device and damage electronic
circuit boards.
• Do not attempt to open the device.
• Do not drop, knock, or shake the device. Rough handling can break internal
circuit boards and fine mechanics.
• Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean
the device.
• Do not paint the device. Paint can clog the moving parts and prevent proper
These suggestions apply equally to your device, charger, or any accessory. If any
device is not working properly, take it to the nearest authorised service facility for
