Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth Headset Overview
The On/Off switch is what you use to turn the headset on and make it active. There are two silver buttons on the top of the Plantronics Voyager 5200, this is what will adjust your hearing volume, simply press the (+) button to increase the volume and press (-) to decrease the speaker volume.
The red button on the microphone boom arm is the button to mute the microphone if you're talking to someone you can press this button so that they won't be able to hear you sometimes people will use it if they need to sneeze, cough, or ask someone around them a private question.
The black button on the back of the microphone boom arm is your call control button. When your phone rings your headset will make a beeping tone and you can just press that call control button to answer or end your phone calls.
This is also the same button that will engage the Bluetooth pairing functionality. Now that you have a good understanding of the buttons on your Plantronics Voyager 5200 let's go over how to pair Plantronics Voyager 5200 to your Bluetooth devices such as Iphones, Ipads, etc.
Pairing The Voyager 5200 With Your Cell Phone

Slide the On/Off Switch upwards so that the switch turns green. *Tip make sure you have charged your headset before pairing so you don't run into any issues.
Step 2) Click & hold the call control button for 3-5 seconds
While wearing the headset on your ear press and hold the black call control button, located at the end of the microphone boom arm, for 3-5 seconds. If successful your headset will verbally say "pairing" and that is how you will know if your Plantronics 5200 pairing is active.
Step 3) Select "PLT V5200 Series" from the Bluetooth menu on the mobile device.
On the Iphone you can navigate to Settings>Bluetooth and on that screen, you will see the Voyager 5200 under "Other devices" towards the bottom and simply just click that button.
In my case, my phone did not request a passcode however if your phone does require a passcode then enter "0000".
That's it! You can now safely say you know how to pair Plantronics Voyager!
How To Pair Voyager 5200 With BT600 Adapter
Now you may have the UC version and have the BT600 USB dongle and are wondering how to pair your Plantronics Voyager 5200 to the USB dongle so you can properly use the headset on your laptop or computer.
Follow these simple steps.
Step 1) Plug the BT600 USB dongle into the computer
The Plantronics BT600 USB dongle is very small and needs to be plugged directly into a laptop or computer to get it set up properly.
Step 2) Put the Plantronics BT600 USB dongle in pairing mode
You may need to use a pen or paper clip to press and hold that small circular button on the side of the BT600 USB dongle.
Press and hold the pairing button for 3-5 seconds until the light on the front of the USB dongle starts to flash red and blue. This flashing lets you know that your Plantronics BT600 is in pairing mode.
Step 3) Press & hold the call control button on the Voyager 5200 for 3-5 seconds
While wearing the headset press and hold the black call control button on the end of the microphone boom arm for 3-5 seconds. The headset will make an audible noise that says "pairing" letting you know the headset is in pairing mode.
Step 4) Wait until the Voyager 5200 says "pairing successful"
Once the BT600 is in pairing mode (flashing red & blue) and also the Voyager 5200 is in pairing mode (it audibly will say pairing or the light on the back of the earpiece will flash red & blue) all you have to do is wait 5-10 seconds for the devices to complete the pairing process.
The lights on both devices will stop flashing red and blue and the Plantronics Voyager 5200 will make an audible sound saying "pairing successful"
That's it! If you are pairing your Voyager 5200 to either a mobile device or to the BT600 USB dongle it is a very quick and easy process as outlined above and it shouldn't take but less than a minute for each procedure.
