    The headset you have is a Telephone headset used by the companies that provide customer service. Telephone headsets connect to a fixed-line telephone system. A telephone headset functions by Replacing the handset of a telephone. All telephone headsets come in a standard 4P4C Commonly Called an RJ-9 connector.

    Computer headsets generally come in two connecting types, standard 3.5 mm & USBconnection. General 3.5 mm computer headset comes with two 3.5 mm connectors, one connecting to microphone jack (line-in) and one connecting to speaker jack (line-out) of the computer. 3.5 mm Computer Headsets connect to the computer via a Soundcard - which converts the digital signal of the computer to analog signal for the headset. USB computer headset connects to the computer via USB ports, and the audio conversion occurs in the headset or in the control unit of the headset. To ensure a headset can properly pair with a telephone, telephone adaptors or pin-alignment adaptors are available in the market. (See on the photo) Some of these adaptors also provide mute function and handset/headset switch.

Charging the headset

  1. Open the cover of the micro-USB port.
Insert the tip of your fingernail in the groove, and open the cover.
  1. Connect the supplied micro-USB cable to the headset, and then connect the other end to a computer.

*Time required to charge the empty battery to its full capacity
Notes
  • If the headset is not used for a long time, the indicator (red) may not light up when you connect the micro-USB cable to charge the headset. In this case, do not disconnect the micro-USB cable from the headset and wait until the indicator (red) lights up.
  • When you close the cover of the micro-USB port after charging the battery, push the catch at the edge (the round part) of the cover into the port compartment.

Notebook Connection to TV


Check to see if your TV has a VGA or DVI input. If it does then buy a DVI to USB adapter or VGA to USB adapter. Each of the adapters cost around $30-60 US Dollars depending on the quality. Then use male-to-male VGA or DVI wire from TV to adapter, then adapter to PC. Good Luck.
