Step 1: Turn on your Jabra Bluetooth

Press and hold the power button until you see the LED indicator light up, indicating that the device is powered on. The LED light may be solid or blinking, depending on the model of your Jabra Bluetooth device.
If your Jabra Bluetooth device has a separate power switch and a pairing button, make sure to turn on the device first before proceeding to the next steps.
