How can you pair the Aukey headphones with a mobile device via Bluetooth? What do the LED colors mean? How to use the buttons?
CAUTION: Electrical Device. Read the safety instructions!
Ensure that the Aukey EP-B40 headphone* is turned off and that the battery is fully charged. Do not separate the two devices for more than 3 feet while pairing.
Press and hold the multi function button (middle) on the headset control unit for approx 6 seconds. The LEDs will flash red and blue. The headphones are now ready for pairing and can be connected with other Bluetooth enabled devices. – You might need to hold the multi function button more than 6 seconds, at least until the LEDs flash red and blue.
Turn on the Bluetooth mode on your mobile device. It will automatically search for other Bluetooth enabled devices nearby. Choose the “AUKEY EP-B40” device from the list. Once the pairing has been successful, the headphone’s LED will flash blue every 8 seconds. In case your mobile device requests a password, please try the combination “0000” or “8888“. – Both devices will reconnect automatically next time.
In case the Aukey EP-B40 headphone* and the mobile devices were paired previously, it’s no more required to start pairing again since both devices will repair automatically next time.
Step 5 (optional)
If you want to connect the Aukey headphones with a second mobile device, simply turn off the Bluetooth function on the first device (for instance “disconnect”) and turn the headphones off. Then follow again the above steps 1 to 3 for the second mobile device. Turn on the first mobile device. Both mobile devices are now connected to the Aukey headphones but only one of them can play music or make phone calls.
In order to perform a “factory reset“, simply press the volume up (+), down (-) and multi function buttons simultaneously for a couple of seconds until the red LED rapidly flashes for two seconds. The headphone is now reset and can be paired with a new device. Do not forget to remove the Aukey EP-B40 headphone* from your Bluetooth device list on your mobile device.
