Connecting to your computer
You may want to pair your headset and computer together via Bluetooth. We highly advise against doing that because customers experience audio issues, unreliable connectivity and no ability to answer/end calls away from the computer, or mute/unmute your mic for example.
Instead, you want to use the BT700 USB Dongle that's included in the box with your Voyager 4300 UC. The headset and adapter come pre-paired together, so it's plug and play.
- Connect the BT700 to your computer
- Power on your headset
- Your headset is now ready to be used on the computer for calls and audio.

Go to your Start Menu > Control Panel > Sound > Playback tab. Select Poly BT700, set it as Default Device and click OK.
Go to the Apple menu > System Preferences > Sound. On both the input and output tabs, select Poly BT700
