How can you pair the TaoTronics SoundElite 71 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 TaoTronics SoundElite 71 headphone battery is fully charged. Do not separate the headphones and the mobile device for more than 3 feet while pairing.
Press and hold the multi function button (middle) on the headset control unit for approx 3 to 5 seconds. The LEDs will flash red and blue. The headphones are now ready for pairing and can be connected with other Bluetooth enabled devices.
Turn on the Bluetooth mode on your mobile device. It will automatically search for other Bluetooth enabled devices nearby. Choose the “TaoTronics SoundElite 71” device from the list. Has the pairing been successful, the headphone LED will flash blue. – In case your mobile device requests a password, please try the combination “0000” or “8888“.
Step 4 (optional)
In order to perform a “factory reset“, simply press the volume up (+) and down (-) buttons simultaneously for a couple of seconds until the purple LED rapidly flashes two times and an acoustic signal appears two times.
