How do I put my Sony WH 1000XM3 in pairing mode?

Answered by Willian Lymon

To put your Sony WH-1000XM3 headset in pairing mode, you can follow these steps:

1. Ensure that the headset is powered off. If it is already turned on, press and hold the power button to turn it off.

2. Once the headset is powered off, locate the power button on the right earcup. It is usually marked with a power symbol or an “on/off” label.

3. Press and hold the power button for about 7 seconds or until you see the Bluetooth indicator light starts flashing. This indicates that the headset has entered pairing mode.

4. Now, the headset is ready to be paired with your desired device. Go to the Bluetooth settings on your device (e.g., smartphone, tablet, computer) and enable Bluetooth if it’s not already enabled.

5. In the Bluetooth settings of your device, search for available devices. You should see the Sony WH-1000XM3 listed as an option.

6. Select the WH-1000XM3 from the list of available devices. Your device will start the pairing process and establish a connection with the headset.

7. Once the pairing is successful, you will hear a confirmation sound in the headphones, and the Bluetooth indicator light on the headset will stop flashing and remain solid.

8. You can now enjoy the wireless connection between your device and the Sony WH-1000XM3 headset. The headset will automatically connect to the last paired device when turned on.

It’s worth noting that if you want to pair the headset with a second or subsequent device, you will need to put the headset in pairing mode again by following step 3. This is because the headset can remember multiple devices but can only connect to one device at a time.

I hope this detailed guide helps you put your Sony WH-1000XM3 headset in pairing mode successfully. If you encounter any difficulties, feel free to ask for further assistance.
