They are not meant for example to be submerged under water, worn in the shower or rinsed under running water. In case the earphones get wet, they should be dried with a cloth before docking back into the charging case. * The earphones were tested under controlled laboratory conditions. The earphones are splash resistant for non-water sports and exercise. Splash resistance might decrease over time as a result of normal use. Wet earphones are unlikely to charge.

  7. The specified battery time of 5 hours has been tested and confirmed for music listening under the following conditions: Nokia E3101 earphones have been fully charged for at least 2 hours in the charging case.

  11. If the earphones don’t function properly, you must perform a soft reset by inserting the earphones into the charging case and waiting for at least 10 seconds.
  12. If a soft reset does not fix the issue, then a hardware reset is required. This will delete all previous settings. Please follow the following steps to reset the earphones to the factory default: Please turn off Bluetooth on the device previously paired with the headset. Take the earphones out of the charging case, and tap the left and right earphone touchpad 3 times when the LED light of the earphone is on. Then tap the left and right earphone touchpad 3 times simultaneously. After waiting for 3 seconds, put the earphones back into the charging case and close the lid.

Twist the earphones slightly into your ear for a secure fit. Try to increase the volume on your Bluetooth device and earphones by pressing on the right earphone’s touch pad until you hear the single maximum volume* tone. *Warning: Protect your ears by limiting the media volume of your devices.
  14. If Bluetooth pairing does not work, do the following: Charge the Nokia E3101 for at least 2 hours to ensure they are fully charged. Take the earphones out of the charging case. Wait until you hear the voice prompt “Pairing”. Start the search for Bluetooth devices on your device and select “Nokia E3101”. If necessary, enter the default pin code “0000” on your Bluetooth device. If the problem persists, perform the earphones hardware reset (see “How do I perform a hardware reset of the headphones?”).
  15. Ensure that the charging contacts of the earphones and the charging case are clean. If charging still does not start, perform a soft reset and then a hardware reset of the earphones if required.
  16. There is a separate set of volume controls for Bluetooth headphones on some Android devices. For iPhones, they feature “Absolute volume control”, meaning that there is only one volume control available, so you can either use the smartphone or the headphones' volume control. To increase the volume of the earphones, simply tap and hold the touchpad of the right earphone until you hear the single maximum volume* tone if required. *Warning: Protect your ears by limiting the media volume.
  17. The audio/video synchronization experience may vary depending on the Bluetooth device or the mobile app which you are using. Using the latest software on your Bluetooth device or the latest mobile app version is always recommended to achieve the best possible synchronization.
  18. Ensure that the earphones are within the transmission range of the Bluetooth device. Since the left earphone establishes the connection to your Bluetooth device, you can get a more stable connection when your Bluetooth device is placed to the left of your body/ left earphone.
  19. Twist the earphones slightly into your ear for a secure fit and ensure that the microphone opening is not blocked. Wind may be a factor that impacts the quality of the phone call.
