How to Put a Plantronics Bluetooth Headset in Pairing Mode

By Amy McClain

Plantronics makes a variety of Bluetooth headsets, designed to give you hands-free use of your mobile phone. While the headsets vary in style, their basic instructions for use are the same. A Plantronics headset must be paired with your mobile device before first use. During pairing, your phone searches for the headset in order to create a connection with it. For your phone to find the Plantronics headset, it must first be in pairing mode.

Step 1

Disconnect your headset from the charging source (if applicable).

Step 2

Press and hold the "Call" or "Power" button, located on the front of the headset.

Step 3

Release the button in approximately five seconds, when the indicator light begins flashing red and blue. This indicates that the device is in pairing mode.

Tips & Warnings

  • The pairing passkey for Plantronics devices is 0000.
  • Ensure your headset's battery has sufficient charge before pairing.
  • A few models have a sliding "On/Off" button rather than a call control button. To place these models in pairing mode slide the button to the "On" position, then release when the lights begin flashing.
  • Never attempt to use your headset while it is connected to the charger.
