Note: Bluetooth transmitter pairing varies. For best results, consult the user instructions for the specific device being paired with the etyBLU2. Some mobile phones require a security setting change for automatic headset-phone pairing.

MultiPoint Pairing

How to setup the etyBLU2 for use with two Bluetooth devices at the same time (MultiPoint)

  • Multipoint is enabled by pressing the Silver MFB button and the Volume Down key at the same time and holding them down for at least one second. You'll hear a tone confirming that there has been a change.
  • Pair the etyBLU2 with the 1st phone. Then turn off the Bluetooth radio on that first phone.
  • Pair the etyBLU2 with the 2nd phone.
  • Turn the first phone's Bluetooth radio back on.
  • Turn the etyBLU2 off and back on. It should connect to both phones now. If it doesn't connect on one or both, try forcing the connection on the phone(s) that it isn't paired to.

Multipoint can be disabled by simultaneously pressing both the MFB and Volume Down key and holding them for less than a second.

Charging

The etyBLU2 headset comes with a rechargeable lithium polymer battery.
Charge the headset for at least one hour before first use.
Charging time from empty: 2-3 hours
80% charge: 1 hour

Charging with the USB connecter (included)

  • Plug the micro USB connector into the etyBLU2 headset as shown.
  • Plug USB end of the charging cable into a computer USB port.
  • The solid yellow LED will indicate that the headset is charging.
  • When charging is complete the yellow LED turns blue.

Insertion

Important: Sound quality and noise isolation depend on a good eartip seal.

  • Carefully insert the earpiece while pulling up and out on the back of the ear.
  • Twist the earpiece while inserting until outside noise is blocked out.
  • Position the earpiece for best fit and comfort.
  • Bend the boom so the microphone is close to the mouth.

  • 3-flange eartip: Moistening eases insertion.
  • Foam eartip: Roll down or compress foam eartip before inserting. Hold the eartip in place for about 5 seconds while the foam expands to create a tight seal in the ear canal.
  • Glider eartip: Simply push into ear canal.

Removal

To avoid discomfort, remove the headset slowly with a twisting motion to gradually break the seal. Open jaw slightly to equalize pressure, because suction can occur when the eartip is removed.
