PAIRING

In order to play audio, the X42 headset must be "paired" (linked) to its transmitter. The headset and transmitter are paired out of the box. The instructions below are only necessary if pairing appears to have been lost.

**NOTE: Maintain a distance of at least two feet between the headset and transmitter when pairing.**

    I plugged in my phone to the transmitter but I can't hear my music through my x42headset?

    Hi Roman, the X42 transmitter can use either the digital connection or the analog connection, but not both at once. Maybe check to see if disconnecting the optical cable from the transmitter makes it work?
