1) Overview

The OontZ Curve allows you to listen to music, videos and games wirelessly from your Bluetooth device. The OontZ Curve works wirelessly with most Smartphones and tablets with Bluetooth*. The rechargeable battery will provide up to 3 to 5 hours** of continuous listening. With the built-in microphone you can use your OontZ Curve as a wireless hands free personal speaker phone when connected by Bluetooth* to most iPhones or Smartphones. You can also listen to non-Bluetooth devices including PC and laptops, by connecting them to the OontZ Curve with the included 3.5mm Audio cable.

*Bluetooth Device Support - The OontZ Curve is Bluetooth version 3.0. It is compatible with almost all Bluetooth devices with the following Bluetooth Profiles: A2DP - Advanced Audio Distribution Profile AVRCP - Audio/Video Remote Control Profile HSP – Headset Profile HFP - Hands Free Profile The OontZ Curve can support a wireless Bluetooth connection up to 30 unobstructed feet away from your device. If your device does not have Bluetooth or the required profiles you can listen to your music using the included 3.5mm audio cable to AUX IN.

3) Charging the battery

To start make sure The OontZ Curve has a sufficient battery charge. To charge the Lithium Ion rechargeable battery in the OontZ Curve plug the micro connector end of the USB cable into the OontZ Curve and the other end into a USB charging source, such as your laptop, desktop or a Smartphone USB wall Power Adapter (not included). The red light indicator next to the micro USB connector will glow RED. When the battery is fully charged the red light indicator will go out and you can remove the charging cable. It will take about 3 to 4 hours to fully charge. Note: It is recommended that you remove the charging cable after the OontZ Curve is fully charged. You can use your OontZ Curve when it is charging.

The OontZ Curve, when fully charged, has a play time of up to 3 to 5 hours, depending on volume. ** The play time varies for a number of reasons including the volume (the louder the volume, the shorter the play time), device, connection, and music type. Note: At full volume the OontZ Curve play time will be up to 3 hours.

If the Red light near the micro USB connector begins to flash, the OontZ Curve battery is low and needs to be charged.

5) Pairing the OontZ Curve to your Bluetooth Device

It is quick and easy to pair and wirelessly connect to your Bluetooth device by following these steps:

Step 1 – Make sure your OontZ Curve has sufficient charge or connect to charging source

Step 2 – Turn on the OontZ Curve, it will automatically go into pairing mode in about 3 – 5 seconds. The OontZ Curve will indicate “Device is ready for connecting” and it is ready to pair. The Bluetooth button on top will flash blue on and off.

Step 3 – Enable the Bluetooth function on your device and then search/scan for the OontZ Curve. When the OontZ Curve appears on the list select it and your device will pair, connecting with the OontZ Curve. Very few devices will request a password, if your device does enter “0000” (four zeros).

Step 4 – The OontZ Curve will indicate it is “connected” and the blue light will stop flashing and will stay a solid blue.

Step 5 – You can now wirelessly play your music or the audio from videos, games and movies. You can use your device and the buttons on the OontZ curve to control your audio, see section 4 –The Buttons items 3, 4 and 5.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The OontZ Curve can only be connected to one device at a time. You will need to disconnect the first device from the OontZ Curve before trying to pair to another device: To disconnect the OontZ Curve you can press and hold down the Bluetooth Button on the top of the OontZ Curve until the OontZ Curve indicates “the device is ready for connecting” and the Bluetooth button flashes on and off. You can then pair and connect to the next device. The OontZ Curve will automatically try to pair to the last connected device each time the OontZ Curve is turned on and that device is or comes within range. If the OontZ Curve successfully connects to the last device it will indicate “Connected” and the blue light on top will be solid blue. IMPORTANT NOTE: To connect to another device you must press and hold down the Bluetooth button for 3 to 5 seconds until the OontZ Curve indicates “Device is ready for connecting” and the blue light flashes. You can then connect the next device.


 

6) Pairing the OontZ Curve to your Bluetooth laptop

To pair with a laptop please follow steps 1 and 2 in section 5. Then follow the Bluetooth pairing instructions for your laptop or MacBook.

You will need to first set up the OontZ Curve as a device on your system and then select it from your list of set up devices. The OontZ Curve may show up on your list of Bluetooth devices before it is set up, but you still need to go through the set up step first, or the OontZ will not be able to pair.

If your MacBook or iPad or other laptop gives you an option during set up to choose Mono or Stereo, always choose Stereo.

Please note that we have instructions and videos on our website: TheOontZ.com to assist you with the pairing steps on laptops, MacBooks, and other devices


 

7) Wireless hands free speaker phone:

When the OontZ Curve is connected by Bluetooth to your Smartphone (and your Smartphone has the Hands Free Profile and Head Set Profile) you will have the Wireless hands-free speaker phone feature enabled.

Incoming calls: when you receive a call you may answer it on your phone or by pressing the Bluetooth and Phone Button on the top of the OontZ Curve. Hold the button for a short one second press to answer the call. Hold the button for three seconds to reject the call.

Your caller will be heard on the OontZ Curve and your voice will be picked up by the microphone. Please have the microphone faced towards you and keep a close proximity to the microphone to have your voice clear to the listener.

Depending on the type of smartphone you have the smartphone can switch the call between the OontZ Curve speaker phone and your device.

NOTE: The Personal Speakerphone feature is enabled in Bluetooth mode, this feature does not function when using an AUX IN connection to your phone.

Note: For some smartphones the call/phone audio needs to be enabled as well as media audio to use the Speakerphone feature.


8) Connecting to non-Bluetooth (AUX-IN) devices

For your device, laptop, tablet or PC that does not have Bluetooth or support for Bluetooth audio, you can connect and play music and audio by connecting your device to the AUX IN jack on the OontZ Curve with the included 3.5mm audio cable.

Step 1 – Plug one end of the 3.5mm audio cable into the AUX IN jack (see Section 4: item 9) on the OontZ Curve and plug the other end into the headphone jack on your device or laptop. The blue light on the top of OontZ Curve will be lit solid blue, and you can play your music.

NOTE : When in AUX IN mode all play, pause, volume, next track, and previous track controls are controlled from the device only. In AUX IN mode these buttons will not function on the OontZ Curve : Volume Down and Previous Track Button; Play / Pause Button; Volume Up and Next Track Button. Control of the audio is on your device only.

Note: When you plug the 3.5mm audio cable into the AUX IN jack of the OontZ Curve it will take priority over Bluetooth and will disconnect any device currently connected by Bluetooth. You will need to remove the audio cable from the OontZ Curve to connect to a Bluetooth device. When you remove the audio cable from the OontZ Curve it will go into Bluetooth connecting mode and attempt to pair to the last Bluetooth device it was connected to if that device is in range
