You can pair one or both earbuds with your Bluetooth® device. If pairing both, the earbud that is turned on first will be the main earbud; the second will be the auxilliary earbud.

  1. Prepare your device (e.g., smartphone) to pair using Bluetooth ®, making sure that the device is within 3 feet (1 meter) of the earbuds. Refer to your device's owner's manual for information on using the Bluetooth ® function.
  2. With the earbuds powered off, press and hold the Multi-Function Button of one earbud until the LED Indicator quick flashes blue and red alternately, indicating that the earbud is in pairing mode. Optionally, turn on the second earbud; its LED Indicator will flash blue when it is paired with the main earbud.
  3. On your device, search the list of available pairing devices and select BBlue Bead Buds. Note that it may take a few seconds for the earbuds to be listed as an available device. Depending on your device, you may have to tap SCAN to update the device list. Consult your device's owner's manual. If the connection is not made within 120 seconds, pairing mode is cancelled.
  4. If prompted, type the password or PIN 0000.
  5. The earbud's LED Indicator will flash blue, indicating that it is paried with the device.

The earbuds will remain paired with your device, even after being turned off, until you cancel the pairing. Consult your device's owner's manual for information on cancelling pairing.
