Before you can sync Onn headphones and earbuds with your devices, you must put them into pairing mode. While the specifics may vary depending on your model, here are the basic steps to take:

  • Onn Bluetooth headphones will enter pairing mode automatically the first time you take them out of the box and turn them on. After that, to get them into pairing mode, press the power button for around five seconds until you see a flashing LED, and they enter pairing mode.
  • Like their headphones, Onn’s true wireless earbuds will enter pairing mode automatically the first time you take them out of the case. To put them into pairing mode at any time after that, take the buds out of the charging case and power them off. Next, press and hold the button on the right earbud for around five seconds until it enters pairing mode, then turn on the left earbud after connecting to a device.
  • Onn’s wireless earbuds (the kind on a band) have a control box with a shared Bluetooth/power button. To turn on the headphones and put them into pairing mode, press the button for around two seconds until you see the indicator LED flashing.
  • If you have an Onn Bluetooth speaker, press the Bluetooth button to put it into pairing mode. Some models don’t have a Bluetooth button, so the speaker will enter pairing mode for a period of time after you turn it on, indicated by a flashing LED.
