Setting Up Your Headset
Charge the battery
Before using your headset, charge the battery for at least 8 hours.
Charging the battery completely (and keeping it charged) will help you
get the longest possible talk and standby time out of the battery.
Connect either adapter to the power connector on the top of the
headset. Connect the AC adapter to any standard 120 V AC (regular
indoor) power outlet. Connect the DC adapter to any standard 12 V DC
(regular automobile) power outlet.
Use ONLY the power adapters supplied with the headset!
Using any other adapter could damage your headset, create a fire
hazard, or cause a risk of electric shock!

Pair the headset to your Bluetooth phone
Pairing is like “introducing” two Bluetooth devices and giving them
permission to connect to each other. If you want to use the headset with
more than one phone, you need to pair it with each phone separately.
Once you pair a phone to the headset, the two devices can connect
automatically whenever they can detect each other.
1: Make sure the headset is powered off and the power adapter is not
connected (you can’t use the headset while it’s charging).
2: Press and hold Power until the LED flashes alternating red and blue.
The headset is in pairing mode and should be visible to other
Bluetooth devices.
3: On your phone, start a search for Bluetooth headsets or hands-free
devices. (This process may take several seconds, and it will be different
for each mobile phone; see your phone’s owner’s manual for detailed
4: Your phone should discover a device called a BT-109 or BT-109 headset.
When your phone asks if you want to pair with this device, answer yes.
5: When your phone prompts you for a PIN code or password to pair
with the BT-109, enter 0000.
6: When the headset is paired, the LED turns blue and flashes every 3
seconds. Your phone might display a confirmation message, also.

: Your phone might ask if you want to change the headset’s name;
generally, you should only change the name if you have more than
one BT-109 headset that you use with this phone.
Connecting to your phone
Most phones connect to the headset as soon as you pair it; if yours won’t,
turn the headset off and back on. If headset still won’t connect, check
your phone’s owner’s manual for additional Bluetooth information.
Once the headset is paired:
► Whenever you turn the headset on, it will automatically try to connect
to whatever device it was connected to last.
► If the headset loses the connection (e.g., if your phone is out of range),
it should reconnect automatically. To manually reconnect, press Power.
► If the headset goes more than 1 hour with no Bluetooth connection, it
will automatically turn itself off.

Everyone’s ear has a sweet spot, a particular angle of the speaker where
the audio comes in loud and clear. Take a few minutes to move the
headset around until you find the best angle for the ear cushion.
If you can’t find your sweet spot or if the cushion doesn’t fit comfortably
in your ear, change it to one of the other sizes that came with the
headset. Pull the cushion off gently and snap a new one on.

If you want to wear the headset on your left ear, take the earhook off and

Available Features

automatically send the call to the headset. If your phone doesn’t, press and
hold Power for 2 seconds to send the call to the headset manually.

dialing, and all voice commands must already be programmed.)
Muting the microphone
To mute the microphone so the caller can’t hear you, press and hold both
Volume Up and Volume Down for about one second. The headset will beep
periodically to remind you that the microphone is muted. Press and hold
the buttons again to turn the microphone back on.

General Information
• You cannot use the headset while it is recharging.
• Bluetooth wireless devices have a maximum range of 30 feet (10 m); the actual range will vary
depending on current conditions (obstacles, battery power, interference, etc.).
• The headset can be connected only to devices that support the Bluetooth headset or hands-free
profile. This product is not compatible with standard cordless phones.
Battery life
With average use, the battery should provide about 9 hours of talk time and 8 days of standby time. A
battery that is new or left unused for long periods of time can have reduced capacity the first few times
it is used. For maximum battery life, keep your battery charged.
• When the battery only has enough charge for about 15 minutes of talk time, the headset triggers a
low battery alert: you’ll hear a periodic beep, and the LED changed from blue to red.
• When the battery no longer has enough charge to operate the headset, the headset will power off; you
won’t be able to turn it back on until you connect the charger or charge the battery.
Noise or Static on the Headset
The most common cause of noise or static on any wireless device is interference. Bluetooth devices
operate in the ISM band (2.402 GHz ~ 2.480 GHz); any equipment operating in this frequency range
might interfere with the headset. Some common sources of interference in this range are
• Any equipment that uses microwaves, especially • Other Bluetooth devices or computer
microwave ovens
• Certain cordless telephones
• Wireless LAN equipment or WiFi connections
• Certain medical equipment and appliances
If you have problems with static during calls, look around for one of these interference sources. Try
moving away from the suspected source.
If the noise continues, there may be interference on your phone itself, and any noise in the phone’s
connection will come through on the headset, too. Transfer the call to your phone and see if the audio
quality improves. If it doesn’t, check around for things that might interfere with your phone.
