JABRA 710 SPEAKER
Apple Operating System (iOS)
The Jabra 710 is a speaker used to enhance the audio output of a device that has a USB 2.0 port or is Bluetooth enabled; such as a smartphone, laptop or tablet. The speaker comes with a USB 2.0 dongle and cable for connectivity and a USB cable for charging. To determine if your device is Bluetooth enabled, look for the Bluetooth emblem on the device or the paperwork shipped with the device.
These instructions will allow you to connect the speaker to a device that is running the Apple operating system (iOS) using either Bluetooth or USB connections.
The speaker comes with a built-in stand shaped like a "V" which is located on the bottom of the speaker. By pressing on the bottom of the "V", the stand will push out from the back of the speaker. Gently pull the stand out fully until you hear a soft click (about a 45-degree angle) that locks the stand in place. To collapse the stand, gently press the ends of the "V" until it is fully enclosed in the base of the speaker.
If your device is not Bluetooth enabled, or if you want to connect using the USB connector, the included USB 2.0 dongle or the USB 2.0 cable can be used. For iOS devices that have the USB Type C port instead of the USB 2.0 port, a USB 2.0 to USB Type C (Thunderbolt) adapter (not included) should be used. On the bottom of the speaker will be found the USB dongle and wired cable that can be removed or unwound and connected to a USB port that supports USB 2.0 or higher.
To turn on the speaker, press and hold the Power button on the outer top edge of the speaker until you see the Power button light up along with indicators around the top perimeter of the speaker. Press and holding the Power button a second time will turn the speaker off.
