Follow these steps to pair the headphones with your device. You can also download the Bose Connect app for easy setup and additional features:
On your mobile device under Bluetooth settings, make sure Bluetooth is turned on and look for the headphones under "Devices." Depending on your operating system, you may need to select "Pair new device" or similar.
Select "Bose AE2 SoundLink" from the device list. You will hear, “Connected to <device name>” and the Bluetooth indicator will glow solid white. If prompted for a passkey, enter 0000 and press OK.
The headphones can store eight devices in memory. When powered on, the headphones will automatically connect to the first two devices in memory, for example a tablet for audio, and a phone for calls.
If connecting to a Windows computer, you may see 2 different icons in the device pairing list (a device icon and a headphone icon). Make sure you select the headphone icon.
