    Bluetooth Headphone Pairing

    Is there a proper way to shut the Nox down to preserve the headphone pairing? I've been experiencing problems recently (well, my Nox itself is "recent", really) with having to re-pair the headphones after powering down. I also had to re-pair today after walking out of range of the detector while wearing the phones. I waited quite a while for it to reconnect, but it would not. I had to shut both the phones and the controller down and go through the full pairing ritual.

    Does it matter which is turned off first... phones or controller?

    I have used the wireless headset twice and do not recall any problem. The manual leads me to think you may be a bit impatient as the 800 "looks" for the WM-08 connection for 15 seconds before trying to pair with APTX headset. I don't know if this is what you are experiencing, time it see what happens.

    Oh, I'm talking about a LOT more than 15 seconds! Minutes.

    It doesn't happen all the time, but enough to be very annoying.

    I don't know if it makes a difference which is turned off 1st, but I always allow the 800 to completely boot up before powering up the wireless headphones. I haven't had connection issues since I started doing this.... Hope this helps.

    Iíve had to turn both headphones and detector off and restart them. I turn the headphones on first then the detector that seems to work for me. Funny thing is I never had a problem with the wm8 module just headphones.

    I never turn them off....
    Reading a manual can make you look real smart
    Not reading a manual...can just make you look not so smart.
    Telling people you can't read on a forum....just makes you look stupid.

    I not only power up the detector first, but also generally perform the noise cancel before turning on the headphones, so timing is certainly not the issue.

    Welcome to the club. I had a hell of a time too. You need to turn on your headphones first and then the NOX. Won't take long to pair. If you have an iPhone put in airplane mode. Hope this helps!

    I have the least problems if I turn on the headphones first, then the detector. After I'm done, I turn off the headphones first, then the detector.

    Just remember not to have the WM8 turned on as it connects first and the BT hp will not connect, Equinox is designed to look for the WM8 first, after it gives up looking for WM8 it then looks for the BT headphones.

    Since I originally connected my BT hp to my Equinox it always connects when I turn it on.

    Good advice but it only looks for the WM08 when in pairing mode, not when simply attempting reconnecting with the last paired device (e.g., when turning the machine on). If you pair the WM08 with the Equinox, then the BT headphones will no longer be paired with the Equinox. My suggestion is to attempt to factory reset the headphones as descibed on p. 57 of the manual. If that does not do the trick, consider a factory reset of the Equinox. Also make sure you have not paired the headset with any other BT devices like a smart phone. Even though the headphones ca be paired with two bt devices, I avoid doing it because the phone might try to connect before the Equinox connects, which can delay or disrupt the reconnection process.

    Thanks, all that suggested turning the headphones on (and off) first. I'll give that a try... I've been doing just the opposite.

    I’ve always turned on the NOX & noise canceled previous to turning on the headphones.
    I’ve not experienced any issues thus far.
