Powering On and Off
To power on the headset, press the Phone Button and the Jog Dial at the same time while hearing ascending beeps and a voice prompt, “Hello”. To power off the headset, press the Phone Button and the Jog Dial at the same time while hearing descending beeps and a voice prompt, “Goodbye”.

Charging
You can charge the headset by connecting the supplied USB power & data cable to a computer’s USB port or USB wall charger. You can use any standard micro USB cable to charge the units. The charging LED turns red while charging and turns blue when fully charged. You can also use the dual battery charger included in the package. It takes about 2.5 hours to be completely charged.

Low Battery Warning
When the battery is low, the blinking blue LED in standby mode turns to red and you will hear mid-tone triple beeps and a voice prompt, “Low battery”.

Checking the Battery Level
You can check the battery level in two different ways when the headset is powered on.

  • LED Indicator
    When the headset is powered on, the red LED flashes rapidly indicating the battery level.
    • 4 flashes = High, 70 ~ 100%
    • 3 flashes = Medium, 30 ~ 70%
    • 2 flashes = Low, 0 ~ 30%
  • Voice Prompt Indicator
    When you power on the headset, keep pressing the Phone Button and the Jog Dial simultaneously for about 5 seconds until you hear three, high-toned beeps. Then you will hear a voice prompt indicating the battery level. However, if you release the buttons as soon as the headset turns on, you will not hear a voice prompt for the battery level indication.

Volume Adjustment
You can easily adjust the volume by rotating the Jog Dial. You will hear a beep when the volume reaches the maximum or minimum level. The volume is set and maintained independently at different levels for each audio source even when you reboot the headset. For example, once you set the volume for your mobile phone hands-free, it will not change even if you adjust the volume for your Bluetooth MP3 music. However, if you adjust the volume during standby mode, it will affect the volume levels of every audio source.

PAIRING THE TUFFTALK WITH BLUETOOTH DEVICES

Before using the Tufftalk Bluetooth headset with any other Bluetooth devices for the first time, you will need to pair them together. You can pair the Tufftalk with Bluetooth mobile phones, Bluetooth stereo devices such as MP3 players, and with other Sena Bluetooth headsets. The pairing operation is required only once for each Bluetooth device. The headset remains paired with the devices and automatically reconnects to them when they are within range. You will hear a high-toned single beep and a voice prompt whenever the headset reconnects to the paired device: “Phone connected” to a mobile phone, “Media connected” to a Bluetooth stereo device.

Mobile Phone Pairing – Mobile Phone, Bluetooth Stereo Device

  1. Press and hold the Phone Button for 5 seconds until you hear a voice prompt, “Phone pairing”.
  2. Search for Bluetooth devices on your mobile phone. Select the Sena Tufftalk in the list of the devices detected on the mobile phone.
  3. Enter 0000 for the PIN. Some mobile phones may not ask for the PIN.
  4. The mobile phone confirms that pairing has been completed and the Tufftalk is ready to use. You will hear a voice prompt, “Your headset is paired”.
  5. If the pairing process is not completed within three minutes, the Tufftalk will return to standby mode.

Note

  1. If the Bluetooth connection between the headset and a mobile phone is disconnected, tap the Phone Button to recover the Bluetooth connection immediately.
  2. If the Bluetooth connection between the headset and a media player is disconnected, press the Jog Dial for 1 second to recover the Bluetooth connection and play.

Second Mobile Phone Pairing – Second Mobile Phone and SR10
Typical Bluetooth headsets can connect with only one Bluetooth device, but a second mobile phone pairing allows the headset to connect with another Bluetooth device such as a second mobile phone, an MP3 Player, or the Sena SR10, the Bluetooth adapter.

  1. To pair the second mobile phone, press and hold the Jog Dial for 5 seconds until the red LED flashes rapidly and you hear a voice prompt, “Intercom pairing”.
  2. Within 2 seconds, tap the Phone Button again, then the LED flashes blue rapidly and you will hear a voice prompt, “Second mobile phone pairing”.
  3. Search for Bluetooth devices on your mobile phone. Select the Sena Tufftalk in the list of the devices detected on the mobile phone.
  4. Enter 0000 for the PIN. Some mobile phones may not ask for the PIN.
  5. The mobile phone confirms that the pairing has been completed and the Tufftalk is ready to use. You will hear a voice prompt, “Your headset is paired”.

Note

  1. If you have two audio (A2DP) devices connected to your headset then the audio from one device will interrupt the audio from the other device. For example, if you are playing music from the primary mobile phone, then it can be interrupted by playing music from the secondary mobile phone and vice versa.
  2. The Sena SR10 is a Bluetooth two-way radio adapter for group communication and uses a Hands-Free Profile. The incoming audio from the two-way radio via SR10 is heard in the background while having an intercom conversation or a mobile phone call.

Intercom Pairing – Other Tufftalk headsets
The Tufftalk can be paired with up to three other headsets for Bluetooth intercom conversation.

  1. Turn on the two Tufftalk headsets (A and B) that you would like to pair with each other.
  2. Press and hold the Jog Dial of headsets A and B for 5 seconds until the red LEDs of both units start to flash rapidly. You will hear a voice prompt, “Intercom pairing”.
  3. Tap the Jog Dial on any one of the two headsets A and B, and wait until the LEDs of both headsets turn to blue and the intercom connection is automatically established. The two Tufftalk headsets A and B are paired with each other for intercom conversation. If the pairing process is not completed within one minute, the Tufftalk will return to standby mode.
  4. Sena Tufftalk-01 Black Earmuff Bluetooth Headset 9 You can make another pairing between headsets A and C, and between headsets A and D by following the same procedure as above.
  5. The intercom pairing queue is ‘Last-Come, First-Served ’. If a headset has multiple paired headsets for intercom conversations, the last paired headset is set as the first intercom friend. The previous intercom friend becomes the second intercom friend and the third intercom friend.

Note
For example, after the pairing procedures listed above, headset D is the first intercom friend of headset A. Headset C is the second intercom friend of headset A, and headset B is the third intercom friend of headset A.

  5. All stations preset during “Scan”, will overwrite previously set stations.

Temporary Preset
With the temporary preset function, you may temporarily preset stations automatically without changing the existing preset stations. Tap the Phone Button three times to automatically scan for 10 temporary preset stations. The temporary preset stations will be cleared when the system is powered off.

Region Selection
You can select the proper FM frequency region from the Sena Device Manager. With the region setting, you may optimize the seek function to avoid unnecessary frequency ranges (factory default: worldwide).

TROUBLESHOOTING

Intercom Failure
