Tango - Headset and Transmitter Pairing Instructions

In order to play game audio, the Tango 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.

Tango Pairing Instructions

  1. Power the headset OFF. (Hold the headset's Power button for 3 seconds to power it off.)      
  2. Disconnect the transmitter from USB power for 3 seconds, then plug it back in. The transmitter's Power/Link LED should now be pulsing slowly.
  3. On the transmitter, press and hold the Power/Pairing button (or the Bypass button) for 5 seconds, and release as soon as the transmitter's Power/Link LED (top-most LED) begins flashing rapidly (twice per second), indicating that it's in pairing mode.
  4. With the headset still powered off, press and hold the headset Power button for 6 seconds until the headset power light starts blinking quickly (or shuts off), then release. The headset and transmitter should now be blinking at the same quick rate (twice per second).
    Note: the Tango headset will announce "Powering on" followed by "Pairing headset."
  5. Within 30 seconds, the transmitter's Power/Link LED will remain on solid, and the headset's Power light will blink steadily once per second, indicating that pairing was successful. 
    Note: the Tango headset will announce "Headset paired." 

The headset's power button is on the left ear cup:

Tango Transmitter:

Power/Link LED is pulsing slowly = Not paired
Power/Link LED is blinking quickly = Pairing mode
Power/Link LED is solid = Paired 

Additional Tips:

  • Make sure your headset is properly recharged, or has fresh batteries installed. When battery power is low, the headset will not pair properly.
  • Make sure the headset and transmitter are 2 to 3 feet apart (about an arm's length) when pairing. If the headset and transmitter are too close, they will not pair properly.
