What is the BT700?

The BT700 is a Bluetooth (BT) USB adapter used to provide the best connection and acoustic sound quality through your new Voyager Focus 2 headset. 

Using this adapter will provide you with the optimal acoustic sound and functionality. It behaves like a soundcard controller, that once connected to your computer or laptop, works with all your apps that use audio, and maximizes your audio experience.

Typically, your BT700 USB adapter is pre-paired (connected) to your headset.  If it does not automatically connect when plugged in then it has somehow disconnected, or it was purchased separately. You will need to connect/pair the adapter to your headset. For this you will need to download the Poly Lens app at poly.com/lens

a.     Insert the Bluetooth (BT) USB adapter into your laptop or computer and wait for your computer to recognize it.

b.     Put your headset in pair mode (On the headset, slide and hold the Power switch away from the off position until you hear “pairing” and the headset LEDs flash red and blue).

c.     Put your Bluetooth USB adapter into pair mode using Poly Lens: Click on the three blue dots in the bottom right corner - select "Pair Device". Your BT700 adapter flashes red and blue.

d.     Pairing is successful when you hear through the headset "pairing successful" and "PC connected" and the Bluetooth USB adapter LED is solid.

Your BT700 Bluetooth (BT) USB adapter will remember up to 2 devices but will only connect to one at a time. If experiencing trouble, check that your Voyager Focus 2 device is the only one connected, if required turn off the second device.
