    Does the power indicator flash?

    • Yes, it flashes.
      • If it flashes, then your headphones turn on normally.
      • If it flashes in blue and red alternately (or flashes in blue twice at a time), your headphones are in Bluetooth® pairing mode.
        • This happens the first time the headphones are used or if it is turned on after the initialization so that you can connect the headphones to a device.
    • No, it doesn't flash.
