Mpow offers a variety of headphone, earbud and bluetooth speaker models and the Bluetooth pairing process is relatively similar for all of them, so if you're having trouble figuring out how to connect your Mpow device to Bluetooth, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on pairing mode for your Mpow headphones or speaker
  2. Find your Mpow device on your phone or laptop and pair them
  3. Confirm successful pairing
  4. Troubleshoot your Bluetooth connection.

These should work for the Mpow Flame, Mpow D7, Mpow H5, Mpow 059Mpow R3, and Mpow Bass, as well as most other models not listed.

1. Turn on pairing mode for your Mpow headphones, earbuds or speaker

Most Mpow headphones and earbuds use a shared "MFB" [Multi-function Button] for Power On/Off and Bluetooth pairing, sometimes labeled "MPOW". Press the “MPOW” button for about 5 seconds until the LED begins flashing red and blue. Some Mpow headsets and speakers will go into pairing mode automatically when turned on, if not already paired to a device, and may just flash with a blue light.

2. Find your Mpow device on your phone or laptop and pair them

Android. Go to Settings and turn on Bluetooth. In Bluetooth click “Pair new device”. When you see your Mpow headphones or speaker come up in the list, tap it and it should be paired with your phone. If it asks for a code, enter "0000".

iPhone. Go to Settings and then Bluetooth. Turn on Bluetooth. Look for your Mpow headphones under “OTHER DEVICES” and tap on it to connect. If it asks for a code, enter "0000".

MacOS. On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Bluetooth. Select your Mpow headphones from the list, then click Connect. If asked, click Accept.

Windows 10. Open “Bluetooth & other devices” in the System Settings either by clicking on your Bluetooth button in the tool bar and selecting “Show Bluetooth devices”. If the Bluetooth button is hidden, you'll find it under the upward arrow on the task bar at the bottom of your display (see below).

When the Add a device window comes up, click “Bluetooth”. Look for your Mpow headphones in the list and tap on it to connect. Alternatively, search for “Bluetooth” in your Windows search box. When the Bluetooth & other devices window comes up, make sure Bluetooth is on then click “Add Bluetooth or other device” and select your device from the list.

3. Confirm successful pairing

When you have successfully paired your Mpow headphones to your phone or laptop, the LED on your headphones will stop blinking.

4. Troubleshooting your Bluetooth connection

If you have followed the steps above and your device still isn’t pairing, try clearing your existing paired devices and re-pair your headphones or speaker. You can do this either by long pressing the MFB button while charging until the blue light flashes 3 times or by holding down the MFP and Volume + buttons for four seconds (which one works varies by model). If this doesn't work, get more ideas in our detailed guide on how to fix Bluetooth pairing problems.

I cannot get both my earbuds to connect to my iPad. Are these a set you can only use one at a time? I bought these to listen to my music. But I want to be able to use both headphones at the same time for my music.


Only one should connect to the iPad

With earbuds, only one of the earbuds (right, usually) will connect to your iPad. Once the first earbud is paired to your iPad, the left earbud should connect automatically to the right earbud to give you stereo sound.


Thank You

Thank you. I will attempt to connect again. When I tried to connect the left was the one that connected first. Should I connect the right first?


Try the right one first

Most models connect the right earbud first. Follow the specific directions for your earbud model on how to pair them (in the case, out of the case, etc.).

My earbuds only work on my phone, it used to work on my laptop but stopped working out of the blue. I can’t add the device, my earbuds says pairing but it doesn’t show up on the list of Bluetooth devices anymore.
