Instructions: First get your Bluetooth headset into pairing mode and then get your BlueLink Adapter into pairing mode. Make sure when they both are in pairing mode that they are next to each other and that there are no other bluetooth devices nearby that would interfere with the BlueLink pairing process.
These brands of Bluetooth earpieces work best with our BlueLink adapters:
- Blue Parrot
When choosing a Bluetooth headset you should choose one that has the following features:
- Bluetooth version 2.1 or newer.
- The longest Talk Time possible. When looking at battery life specifications for headsets, the Talk Time will give you a rough estimate of how long the battery in the headset will operate before needing to be recharged, when connect to the radio adapter.
- Headsets that have Digital Signal Processing (DSP) features will typically sound better than those that do not. Note that because the headset is being kept in a constant on-call state, it is normal to hear some noise in the headset when no signal I being received by the radio. This noise is often described as a slight buzz, hum or an occasional popping sound. This noise should not interfere with normal communications and should not be present when a signal is actively being received.
Will contact RedCode about this and update review accordingly In the meantime: Reception works fine Transmission: With my Zastone dp860 radio (same as Kirisun s780): I need to press both the radio PTT and the Bluelink's to transmit If I unplug the Bluelink Adapter while the radio is on, and plug it back, the radio will always be in transmission mode, until I turn it off and on again. ---- With my Wouxun KG-689 (using Motorola to Kenwood adapter): Radio is always in transmission mode (transmits noise until I press the bluelink's ptt, at which time sound is transmitted correctly) ---- Conclusion: Not usable as it is right now
There is some minor feedback when I get too close to other radios and some static but it's still a great item. It beats the long wires and earpiece/mic that's for sure
