First, let's get your Plantronics Voyager 5200 paired up to all your mobile and computer devices without the hassle of looking at the manual. To start, let's make sure you're familiar with all the buttons on the Plantronics Voyager 5200 earpiece before we dive into how to connect your Plantronics headset.
Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth Headset Overview
The On/Off switch is what you use to make your headset active. There are two silver buttons on the top of the Plantronics Voyager 5200 that can be used to adjust your hearing volume. Simply press the (+) button to increase the volume and press (-) to decrease it.
The red button on the microphone boom arm is designed for mute. This can be used if you need to sneeze, cough, or ask someone them a private question while still using your Plantronics Voyager.
The black button on the back of the microphone boom arm is your call control. When your phone rings, your headset will make a beeping tone and you can use this button to answer or end your phone calls.
The same button will also engage the Plantronics Bluetooth pairing functionality.
Now that you can navigate the buttons on your Plantronics Voyager 5200, let's go over Plantronics Voyager Pairing and how to connect your Plantronics headset to devices such as iPhones, iPads and more.
How to Pair Plantronics Voyager With Your Cell Phone
Step 1) Turn Plantronics Voyager 5200 On
Slide the On/Off switch upwards so that the switch turns green. Remember to have charged your headset before pairing so you don't run into any issues.
Step 2) Click & hold the call control button for 3 to 5 seconds
While wearing the headset, press and hold the black call control button, located at the end of the microphone boom arm, for three to five seconds. If successful, your headset will verbally say "pairing," and that is how you will know if your Plantronics Voyager 5200 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 Plantronics Voyager 5200 under "Other devices" towards the bottom. Click that button for Plantronics pairing mode.
That's it! Now you know how to pair your Plantronics Voyager headset!
How To Pair Plantronics Voyager 5200 With BT600 Adapter
If you have the UC version and are wondering how to pair your Plantronics Voyager 5200, don’t fret. We can help you connect to the USB dongle so you can still use the headset on your laptop or computer. Just 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 three to five 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 three to five seconds
While wearing the headset, press and hold the black call control button on the end of the microphone boom arm for three to five seconds. The headset will make an audible noise that says "pairing," letting you know the headset is in Plantronics pairing mode.
Step 4) Wait until the Plantronics Voyager 5200 says "pairing successful"
Once the BT600 is in pairing mode (flashing red & blue) and the Plantronics Voyager 5200 is in pairing mode (you will hear an audible “pairing” or the light on the back of the earpiece will flash red and blue) all you have to do is wait five to ten 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 Plantronics Voyager 5200 to either a mobile device or to the BT600 USB dongle it’s a very quick and easy process. It shouldn’t take more than a minute each time. If you find that it takes longer than this estimation or you need additional support, contact us today.
Can you pair the Plantronics Voyager 5200 to more than two devices? I have a cell phone, PC, and IP work phone that supports bluetooth. I can’t seem to get all three devices connected at once.
is it possible to pair 2 BT600 dongles to 1 headset?
Amazing help, thank you
I have purchased a Plantronic 5200. It pairs ad connects easily with my Iphone, but not with my Lanovo Yoga 3 pro laptop – which was the only reason for buying it.
It seems to pair withe laptop, which says “complete” – but keeps flashing blue/red on the headset.
I have not ha any other issues with connecting via Bluetooth on the laptop.
What am i missing?
Can I connect to a smart tv with the dongle? I have it paired to my 5200 and it says connect to PC but I do not get sound.
Very clear instructions, much better than the Plantronics online manual. I successfully paired to all my devices in seconds with your instructions many thanks
