Issue Resolution
How do I pair my headset to a mobile device? See Pair to mobile device.
My audio unexpectedly switches between my headset and mobile phone.  


•   If you do not wear glasses, reset your headset sensors. See Reset sensors.

•   If you wear glasses, try disabling the sensors. Your headset-wearing sensors may not function correctly when wearing glasses with certain frame characteristics. See Disable sensors.

My audio is crackling.  


•   Your headset may be too far away from your connected device and out of Bluetooth range. Move closer to your connected device.

•   Bluetooth density issues: If you are in a location with many Bluetooth devices operating at the same time (such as on a train or in a gym), they may be interfering with your Bluetooth connection and causing instability. Try using your headset in a less crowded location to see if the issue persists.

•   Ensure that your headset microphone is pointed toward the corner of your mouth. See Fit.



•   Callers can’t hear me.

•   I can’t hear callers or music.



•   Ensure the headset is paired and connected to your phone. See Pair to the mobile device.

•   On iOS, check your audio output on your smartphone to make sure that the audio is directed to the headset and not another audio output.

•   If your headset is connected to the computer with a USB Bluetooth adapter, configure it for streaming audio. See Configure USB adapter for streaming media.

•   Your headset sensor may not be detecting your ear shape correctly. Reposition the headset on your ear.

•   Disable your sensors as they may be incompatible with your specific ear shape or glasses frames. See Disable sensors you may need to reset your sensors. See Reset sensors.

•   Disable HD Voice (Wideband Audio) via Poly Lens App as this setting may be incompatible with your phone.

My headset will not report 7 hours of talk time after it is fully charged.  


•   Ensure the headset is paired and connected to your phone. See Pair to mobile device.

•   Disable HD Voice (Wideband Audio) which uses more power.

•   Completely discharge your headset’s battery then give it a full charge.

•   Some phones have less efficient Bluetooth connections and thus will not allow for an optimal talk time of 7 hours. The talk time remaining estimate is partly calculated by your historical use so inconstancies in an estimate may occur based on your particular use patterns.

To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, injury to persons, and damage to property, read all operating instructions and the following safety instructions before using your Poly product. Operating, storage, and charging temperature is 10˚C to 40˚C (50˚F to 104˚F).

  • Only use those Poly products and accessories designed for use with this product.
  • If you experience skin irritation after using this product, discontinue use and contact Poly.
  • CHILDREN. Never allow children to play with the product-small parts may be a choking hazard.
  • Do not disassemble the product as this may expose you to dangerous voltages or other risks. Incorrect reassembly can cause electric shock or fire when the product is subsequently used.
  • Unplug, discontinue use, and contact Poly if the product overheats or has a damaged outer casing, cord, or plug.
  • Exposure to high-volume sound levels or excessive sound pressure may cause temporary or permanent damage to your hearing. Although there is no single volume setting that is appropriate for everyone, you should always use your headset/ headphones with the volume set at moderate levels and avoid prolonged exposure to high-volume sound levels. The louder the volume, the less time is required before your hearing could be affected. You may experience different sound levels when using your headset/headphones with different devices. The device you use and its settings affect the level of sound you hear. If you experience hearing discomfort, you should stop listening to the device through your headset/headphones and have your hearing checked by your doctor.
    To protect your hearing, some hearing experts suggest that you:


    • Set the volume control in a low position before putting your headset/headphones on your ears and use as low a volume as possible.
    • Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings. Whenever possible, use your headset/headphones in a quiet environment with low background noise.
    • Limit the amount of time you use headsets/headphones at high volume levels.
    • Turn the volume down if the sound from the headset/headphones prevents you from hearing people speaking near you. See poly.com/healthandsafety for more information on headsets/headphones and hearing.
  • If you use your headset/headphones while driving, check local laws regarding the use of a mobile phone and headset, and ensure your attention and focus remain on driving safely. Use of a headset/headphones that covers both ears will impair your ability to hear other sounds and in most regions is illegal to use while operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle and may be a serious hazard for you and others.
  • If this product includes earbuds/ear tips, install and use them in accordance with the instructions provided. Do not force earbuds/ear tips down the ear canal. Consult a doctor if they become lodged in the ear canal.
  • Plug the mains adapter or charger into a socket outlet that is near the equipment and will be easily accessible.
