- Turn on pairing mode for your Onn headphones
- Find your Onn headphones on your phone or laptop and pair them

1. Turn on pairing mode for your Onn headphones
Onn headphones and earbuds use a shared button for Power On/Off and Bluetooth pairing. If you press and hold the button for 3-4 seconds (based on comments from owners below, some models may require 8-10 seconds), the headphones will power on and you'll see a flashing LED light indicating the headphones are now in pairing mode. The LED will either flash between red and blue or just blue, also depending on model.
2. Find your Onn headphones on your phone or laptop and pair them
