Setup steps:

*** NOTE: If the headset shutting off randomly try using the charging cable as the power cable and see if that resolves the issue. Cable 1 and 2 are the same cable just different lengths. The shortest one (number 1) is the power cable. The longest one (number 2) is the charging cable for the headset. Cable 3 is the Xbox live chat cable (this cable is only needed for xbox). Cable 4 is the piggyback RCA cable.

  1. Make sure the Transmitter and headset are powered on.
  2. Press and hold the power buttons on both the transmitter and headset for 2 seconds until the LEDs begin to flash white.
  3. Once pairing is complete the power LEDs will stop flashing and turn solid white.
  4. A solid amber light on the headset means the headset is either fully charged or is powered via USB
  5. A rapid blinking amber light on the headset means the headset needs to be charged (less than 15% remaining).
  6. A solid blinking amber light on the headset means the headset is charging.
