Pairing the Headset with the PS3
the Headset can be used with the PS3, the two devices must be ‘paired’
so they can communicate with each other. Use a gaming controller for
this procedure and ensure that the Headset is powered on (flashing blue
LED light) and that it is not being charged via USB cable.

Depending on your model of the 8860 Bluetooth® Headset, your power
button is either an oval shape with an icon of a circle with a line
going through it (5a) or it is a button with a phone icon (5b). Please
follow the appropriate next step depending on your model of the 8860.
Once at the next screen, prepare the Headset to be paired with the PS3
by holding down the K1 button until the LED flashes Blue and Red (hold
K1 approx 12 seconds).

Headset to be paired with the PS3 by tapping the pairing button located
next to the volume controls on the side until the LED flashes BOTH Blue
6. Once the Headset’s LED indicator is alternately
flashing Blue and Red (indicating the Headset is ready to be paired),
press X on “Start Scanning.”
7. Once Scan is complete, the PS3 will recognize all Bluetooth devices within range.
8. Locate “8860” from the list of available devices and press X on its icon to be prompted for a Pass Key
9. Enter 0000 (four zeros) as the Pass Key and press X on OK
10. You should then be taken to a new screen stating: “Register completed”

If the Headset has been paired with another Bluetooth device, the PS3
will have trouble finding the Headset. Either remove the Headset from
the paired device or turn off the Bluetooth power on the paired device.
