FAQ - 3M™ Peltor™ WS™ Headset (Bluetooth™)

Q:  Can I change the pincode?

A:  No, the pincode required for pairing cannot be changed. The pincode is only needed for the first pairing with each compatible handset.

Q:  Do I need to change the ear cushions and the foam when they becomes dirty?

A:  We recommend you to change them every six months if you use your hearing protectors on a daily basis. A new hygiene kit refreshes your hearing protectors and makes them like new.

Q:  What does the CE-mark on the shell tell me about your hearing protectors?

A:  It tells you that Peltor as a manufacturer has had the hearing protectors tested at an independent testing institute in accordance with the CE standards (EN 352-1 for ordinary hearing protectors and EN352-3 for hearing protectors attached to helmets). The CE standards tell us as a manufacturer to provide a certain level of information - for example, full information about attenuation including H, M and L values (attenuation at High, Medium and Low frequencies) and also SNR (Single Noise Ratio).

Q:  What is Bluetooth wireless technology?

A:  Bluetooth is an industrial specification for wireless personal area networks (PANs). Bluetooth provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, laptops, PCs, printers, digital cameras etc via a secure, globally unlicensed short-range radio frequency band (2,4GHz). This versatile feature can wirelessly connect compatible handsets to your Peltor WS Alert for hands-free calling.

Q:  What is the difference between pairing and connecting?

A:  Pairing is a one-time process that must be completed in order to connect your handset to your Peltor WS Alert. The paring process is handset dependent; therefore users should be familiar with the setup, or Bluetooth menus of their handsets. For customers using the recommended handsets the process is fairly straightforward. Paring with non-compatible handsets may not be possible. Once paired, the portable handset will automatically connect to the Peltor WS Alert when you activate the Bluetooth functionality, provided Bluetooth is turned on in the handset. The handset will normally connect within 30 seconds, but it may take longer depending on BT timing.

Q:  What is the pincode?

A:  The pincode is 0000.

Q:  Which handsets can I utilize?

A:  Bluetooth handsets can vary in quality and contain different Bluetooth firmware and profile support. Therefore, not all Bluetooth handsets will operate at the same level.

Q:  Which hearing protector is the best?

A:  You can’t say that one hearing protector is better than another just because it has a higher SNR value. The best hearing protection is one comfortable enough to make you wear it a full working day and not overprotecting you, which will make you feel isolated.

Q:  Why can the talk time and standby time differ with the products specification description?

A:  The talk time and stand by time will differ based on different brands’ mobile phones, different distances between devices and different Bluetooth link status (active, sleep, sniff mode etc.)
