How to Connect a JayBird to an iMac

The JayBird Sportband is a pair of headphones that connects wirelessly to your computer via Bluetooth connection. The Macintosh computer's Bluetooth Setup Assistant provides a simplified setup process by scanning the area for Bluetooth devices and displaying the detected device in its device list. Once connected, the JayBird can be used to listen to music or connected directly to the computer to charge the headphones' battery.
