How do I pair an NFC-compatible mobile device to my Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones

    What is required?

    • A Near Field Communication (NFC) compatible mobile device with Android™ 4.1 or higher
    • Your WF-1000X Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones and the supplied charging case

    Steps to pair the headphones using NFC

    1. Turn on the NFC function of your mobile device.
      • Check the manual of the mobile device for feature-specific information.
    2. Remove the left and right headphones from the charging case.
      • The blue indicators will blink twice to signal that they are charged and turned on.
      • If the headphones are off, press the left and right buttons to turn them on.


    3. Hold the NFC logo of the mobile device near the NFC logo on the bottom of the charging case until the mobile device vibrates or plays a short sound.


      • Take note of the volume settings if the wireless headphones are in your ears.
      • The mobile device screen should be unlocked.
      • If the mobile device is in a protective case and you are unable to make a connection, remove the protective case.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the pairing.
      • The indicators will blink slowly to indicate that the headphones are paired.
      • You'll hear Bluetooth Connected when the pairing is completed.


    If your NFC-compatible mobile device gets in contact with the bottom of the charging case, the current Bluetooth® connection will be terminated and the smartphone will connect to the headphones. This feature is called One-Touch Connection Switching.
