What's Bluetooth pairing?

Bluetooth pairing is a form of information registration for linking devices. By registering device information (pairing) between devices, they can connect. To use a Bluetooth device, you must first pair it with another Bluetooth device. Pairing is a bit like exchanging phone numbers. Similar to how you must trade phone numbers with a person you want to call, connecting Bluetooth devices requires you first to pair them to register the pairing information of each device. After pairing devices the first time, there is no need to repeat this pairing process. That is because each device has saved the necessary information and can therefore easily connect

.

If the pairing information stored by your Bluetooth device is deleted (e.g. device reset), you will be unable to connect it to the device you previously registered. It's a bit like forgetting someone's phone number means that you cannot call him or her!

Should that happen, you will have to pair them again for them to be able to connect. In the same way, when you change your mobile device (e.g. when you buy a new smartphone), you must pair the new device and the headphone or speaker again.

Refer to the following pages for the pairing procedures for Bluetooth devices

NOTE: There is a limited amount of Bluetooth devices that can be registered to Bluetooth headphones. If you have reached the maximum registration limit and you attempt to register a new device, pairing information of one of the devices you previously registered (the earliest device in your connection history) will be deleted.



Bluetooth connection

A Bluetooth connection is a transmission between two Bluetooth devices. To complete the Bluetooth connection, you must first register the information of each device with the other. After pairing the devices the first time, there is no need to repeat the pairing process to connect again.

Establishing a connection between two Bluetooth devices is like making a phone call. Similar to how you can call someone if you both know one another's phone number; two devices can connect if they have been paired, thereby storing one another's pairing information.
