Here's how easy it is to use them...
Before we begin, do you have iPod nano
or other non-Bluetooth music device?
If you do, JayBird offers a small Bluetooth adapter for you. You would skip step 1 and insert the Bluetooth adapter into your iPod (or other device) instead.
For any stereo Bluetooth enabled device
Such as iPhone, other mobile phones & MP3 players:
1. Locate the settings screen
2. Then locate Bluetooth setup
3. Have it search for a new Bluetooth device
Put your Bluetooth headphones into pair mode. Pair mode simply means search mode.
To put Sportsband into pair mode, push the center button for 6+ seconds until you see an alternating blue and red light.
Your music device will locate your Bluetooth headphones and display the name on screen. Example "SB2" for Sportsband.
Select the headphones and if prompted for a pass code, enter 0000.
When connected, your Bluetooth headphones status light will slow down and flash a very subtle dim blue color.
You are ready to listen wirelessly to your favorite tunes.
Launch the music player on your music device. On iPhone for example, it's the orange iPod icon.
Select a song and press play on your music device. You'll hear the music through your Bluetooth headphones.
You can use the remote command buttons on your headphones to play, pause, next track, back track, change volume and even answer calls. See your user manual for details.
|If indoors, you can walk up to 10 meters (33 feet) away from the music device while listening to music wirelessly.|
If outdoors or in large open spaces like a gym (where the Bluetooth radio signal cannot bounce of nearby ceilings or walls), you'll likely need your music device closer like in an armband on your arm. The orange area shown is the optimal reception range when outdoors.
Avoid blocking the signal between the music device and headphones with your body. Your body is mostly water which the Bluetooth radio signal cannot penetrate.
iSport enables Bluetooth on iPod, and gives the option of apt-X CD quality audio on iPod, iPhone or iPad. More
To pair with Sportsband, plug iSport into your iPod, & begin with step 2 and skip straight to step 4 of the pairing instructions.
The uSport Universal Bluetooth Adapter works with any device with a regular sized headphone jack (3.5mm). It enables Bluetooth on your device and even gives the option of apt-X audio quality with CD quality signal. It's very slim, designed to lay flat against your music device in your pocket or armband.

To pair with Sportsband, Push and hold the uSport power button until you see a red and blue flashing light. Plug uSport into your music device, and begin with step 2 and skip straight to step 4 of the pairing instructions.
APTX focuses on two very simple principles:
1. Acoustical integrity
2. Low latency
apt-X has been associated with professional audio applications for 20 years, with over 20,000 radio and TV stations worldwide, broadcasting content with the help of apt-X.
Integrating apt-X into Bluetooth headphones delivers pristine CD quality audio and a more fulfilling user experience. It does this by more efficient compression and decompression than standard SBC Bluetooth. It needs less bandwidth and avoids the typical packet loss which causes white noise and loss of audio quality. More on apt-X
I don't have stereo Bluetooth (often called A2DP) on my music device
Use a JayBird Bluetooth adapter. iSport for iPod, and uSport for everything else with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Not only will you get
bass-rich Bluetooth music, but you'll also step up to apt-X CD quality audio. Sportsband will switch to apt-X mode automatically.
My music device has stereo Bluetooth, but it doesn't have apt-X
Great, the Sportsband Bluetooth headphones will produce a bass-rich Bluetooth music experience with your music device using your standard Bluetooth connection. You can purchase the Sportsband alone for that, or you can upgrade your music device's Bluetooth signal to apt-X CD quality with one of the two apt-X enabling adapters. iSport for iPhone/iPad/iPod, or uSport for anything else with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Sportsband will switch to apt-X mode automatically.
Which music devices come with apt-X?
Apple's new Mac Mini is the first to carry apt-X and therefore, does not require a JayBird Bluetooth adapter to play in apt-X quality to the Sportsband Bluetooth headphones. apt-X is built right into both devices so Sportsband will switch to apt-X mode automatically. More phones and other devices to carry apt-X in the coming months.
