How To Pair Shokz With Nfc

Near field communication, also known as NFC, is a cutting-edge technology that enables a compatible mobile device and NFC-enabled headset to connect simply by being in close proximity to one another.

There is no longer any need to scroll through Bluetooth and settings menus.

However, the Aftershokz OpenComm Bone Conduction headset is the only one that supports NFC at the moment.

To use NFC to pair Aftershokz headphones, just follow these instructions:

  1. Ensure your Aftershokz Bluetooth pairing mode is enabled
  2. Hold your headphones (where the NFC logo is located) next to the device you want to connect to
  3. After a moment, a blue light will flash with a voice confirmation of ‘Connected’
  4. If a prompt pops up onscreen, hit confirm to complete the connection

Compared to the standard Aftershokz Bluetooth pairing procedure, this is, as previously mentioned, much quicker. You must, however, confirm that your Android device is currently NFC compatible.

Aftershokz Headphones And Near Field Communication (nfc) Pairing

If Bluetooth isn’t functioning properly, another pairing mode to try is NFC.

All it takes to establish a connection using Near Field Communication is to hold two NFC-enabled mobile devices close to one another.

For the most part, it permits phones, tablets, headphones, etc. with other NFC-enabled devices, to share data more quickly and easily.

(Note: When I said an NFC-equipped headset, I meant that not all headsets support and have this feature; for instance, on AfterShokz, their OpenComm headset is the only one that does.)

To pair the OpenComm headsets, hold down the Volume+ button until the headset begins to flash red and blue, and then place the NFC sign—which is located on the left arm of the headset—near the NFC detection area.

Once the blue light flashes, you’re ready to go.

Pairing Aftershokz To Multiple Devices:

Multipoint pairing is available on AfterShokz headphones, enabling simultaneous connections to two devices.

  • Like always, hit it off with the headphones turned off
  • Then enter pairing mode by pressing the volume+ button up to 5-7 seconds)
  • Once you are done with pairing press and hold the multifunctional button and the volume+ for at least 2-3 seconds, until you hear Audrey saying “Multipoint Enabled”
  • Restart the pairing process after turning off your headphones a second time.
  • Once you pair the second device you will hear Audrey say “Device Two Connected” and the led light flashes red and blue.

You’re done; these two devices should now have the headphones paired.
