Despite the difference in the characteristics of the various True Wireless (TWS) models of the in-ear with a headset and microphone, they all connect to Android and iPhone according to the same principle. Therefore, this guide will also be universal for all types of “headset”, whether it be pathos JBL, Marshall Major, Sony, Samsung, Apple Airpods or inexpensive iFans, i11, i12 or Elari Nanopods c AliExpress.

How to turn on the wireless headphones?
Before you start using, let’s see how to turn on the wireless headphones. We will talk about connecting a headset to the phone, which works by the type of TWS (True Wireless) connection. This means that there are no wires at all between them. They connect via Bluetooth 4 or 5.0 both between themselves and with the phone. At the same time, only one of them, the leader, connects to it. And the second works through the first, creating stereo sound.
Therefore, when you removed the headphones from the box, you need to start by turning on and synchronizing them with each other. In different models, this is done in one of two ways.
- Manually. this is an obsolete type in which you need to simultaneously press the function buttons on each of the headphones. After which they will connect with each other, and then you can already connect them to the phone.
- Automatically. this method is used on all latest TWS wireless headphones. The bottom line is that both modules are paired from the factory, and as soon as you get them out of the case, they are immediately connected to each other and ready to work with a smartphone.
What type is used in your model, you need to know from the instructions that come with the kit. But it is possible to understand without it too. if immediately after switching on a voice alert of the “Pairing” type is issued in them, then they are already synchronized.
