Plantronics Explorer 232 Pairing Instructions

By Jennifer Lott

The Plantronics Explorer 232 is a wireless Bluetooth headset that offers Plantronics' QuickPair technology to simplify pairing the device. The Explorer 232 earpiece weighs 11 grams, offers up to 8 hours of constant talk time and up to 200 hours of standby time. It is compatible with devices that use Bluetooth version 1.1 and higher. The Explorer 232 helps users stay safe on the road by keeping their hands on the wheel and their attention on the road -- not on their mobile device.

Step 1

Power off the Explorer by pressing and holding the call control button, located on the outward-facing side of the earpiece. Hold until the indicator glows red and emits a descending tone.

Step 2

Press and hold the call control button for five seconds, until the light begins blinking red and blue. Release the call button and set the headset aside.

Step 3

Navigate to your cell phone's Bluetooth menu (often under "Settings"). Search for the Plantronics headset, which should appear as "2xxPlantronics" in the list of available devices.

Step 4

Enter "0000" as the passkey if you are prompted for one to complete the pairing process.

Tips & Warnings

  • After you pair the headset with your phone for the first time, your phone automatically pairs to the headset (if its Bluetooth is activated) in the future.
