How to Make Plantronics Bluetooth Discoverable

By Amy McClain

Plantronics Bluetooth headsets are available in a variety of styles. Regardless of the model you own, you'll need to pair it to your mobile phone before first use. Pairing involves placing the headset in discoverable mode, which allows it to be found by your phone. Almost all Plantronics headsets can be paired one of two ways. Before you attempt to set up your headset, ensure that the battery is charged for best results. Most models charge fully in two hours.

Headsets With an "On/Off" or "Call Control" Button

Step 1

Disconnect your headset from the charging source. Do not power on the headset.

Step 2

Press and hold the "Power" button or "Call Control/Power" button, depending on the model.

Step 3

Release the button when the headset's indicator light begins flashing in red and blue. This takes approximately five to six seconds -- your headset is now discoverable.
