Connecting to a mobile phone or audio device

Connect your Bose® headset to your mobile phone using the 1/8-inch (3.5 mm) stereo plug (compatible with standard headphone jacks), or, if necessary, use one of the three included 2.5 mm adapter cables

The correct connection will:

  • Deliver stereo sound during music playback and communications
  • Allow the person on the other end of a phone call to hear your voice
  • Enable proper operation of the answer/end button

Connecting without an adapter

If your phone has a 1/8-inch (3.5 mm) headphone/headset jack, you do not need to use the included adapters.

Insert the headset audio plug into the headphone/headset jack on the phone

Put on the headset

Connecting with an adapter

The Bose mobile in-ear headset includes three unique phone adapters. Each one is identified by a small symbol (circle, diamond, triangle) on the top of the plug. If your phone has a 2.5 mm headphone/headset jack, you will need to use one of these adapters.

Select the appropriate adapter. Refer to the owner's guide for details

Attach the adapter to the headset audio cable

With the adapter connected to the headset cable, insert the adapter audio plug into the headphone/headset jack on the phone

Put on the headset

Note: If your phone does not respond when you press the answer/end button, you are getting partial or no sound, or the microphone is not picking up sound, you may be using the wrong adapter. Refer to your owner's guide to determine which adapter is compatible with your phone.
