AirPods are the perfect device for anyone looking for wireless audio with the convenience of a Bluetooth connection. With AirPods, you can experience great sound quality and hands-free calling, all while avoiding the hassle of cords.

The good news is that connecting AirPods to a Cisco phone is not difficult at all. First, press and hold the pairing button on the back of the case. Then launch the Bluetooth settings on your device and select AirPods from the list. Finally, confirm the pairing.

On newer Cisco phones, there’s also a built-in USB port and Bluetooth connectivity. This allows you to use USB and Bluetooth wireless headsets withot needing an additional EHS cable or lifter for remote capabilities. Simply plug the USB headset plug into the USB port on your phone and you’re good to go.

It’s important to note that if you have both a Bluetooth device (such as AirPods) and a standard headset attached to your Cisco phone, only one type of these devices will work at any time. When you enable one, the other will automatically be disabled.

If you ever find that your AirPods are having trouble connecting or pairing with your Cisco phone there could be several reasons why this is happening, including low battery charge, software update problems, hardware damage or debris on either the AirPod or charging case itself. It’s best to check all possible causes before replacing any parts or seeking assistance from customer service in order to troubleshoot any potential issues with your Airpods connection to your Cisco phone.
