How to turn on pairing mode on Jabra headphones or earbuds

Before using your Jabra headphones or earbuds with another device, you must put them into pairing mode. The specifics for doing this may vary between Jabra models, but in general, here’s what to do:

  • For headphones and earbuds with a multifunction button, push the multifunction button for three to five seconds (depending on the model) until the Bluetooth LED flashes and the “pairing mode” prompt plays. For earbuds, take them out of the case and use the button on the earbuds. For some models, such as the Jabra Elite 65t, press the button only on the right earbud. On other models, such as the Jabra Elite 7 Pro, you’ll need to simultaneously press the left and right buttons.
  • If your headset doesn’t have a case (usually mono headsets), turn on the headset, then press the Answer/end button for around three seconds until you hear the “pairing mode” prompt and see the Bluetooth LED flashing.
  • For mono headsets with a charging case, dock the headset in the case and ensure it’s charged. Then, press and hold the battery status button for around three seconds until you see the LED flashing Blue.
