Q: How do I connect the earbuds to a mobile device?

 

A: To connect your earbuds to a mobile device, install the Samsung Gear app on the mobile device. Depending on your device, you can download the Samsung Gear app from the following places:

 

• Galaxy Apps or Play Store

Note: You can download the Samsung Gear app only on mobile devices running Android operating system 4.4 or later, and with 1.5 GB of RAM or more.

How to connect the earbuds to a mobile device
1 Check the direction of each earbud, correctly insert them into their corresponding slots in the charging case, and close it.

If the earbud indicator lights do not flash, connect the charging cable and charge them for more than 10 minutes.

2 Open the charging case. The earbuds will enter Bluetooth pairing mode automatically and a pop-up window will be appear on your mobile device in case Bluetooth is activated on mobile device.

When the charging case’s indicator light flashed in red, take out the earbuds from the charging case and insert them into the case again. 

 

If the earbuds do not connect to a mobile device within 3 minutes, Bluetooth paring mode will be deactivated. If the earbuds have never been connected to a mobile device before, close the charging case again and open it.

3 When the pop-up window appears on your mobile device, tap CONNECT.
4 Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the connection. Once the earbuds are connected to your mobile device, they will automatically attempt to connect to your mobile device whenever you take them out of the charging case.

If you want to connect to another mobile device after connecting has been established, you have to reinsert the earbuds  into the charging case and close it. Press and hold the charging case’s Connect button.
