How to Connect the AnyTone 878 PLUS to a Bluetooth Headset

How to Connect the AnyTone 878 PLUS to a Bluetooth Headset

Hi everyone, this is Cody from BridgeCom Systems and in this video I'm going to be showing you how to connect a Bluetooth headset to your Bluetooth compatible Anytone 878 PLUS radio.

So here we have some Apple AirPods. Now this is probably not a prime example for the headset you'd be connecting to but it will work for the video.

So first up, what you want to do is turn on the radio. Click on Menu then go up to the Bluetooth menu, enter that. Make sure your Bluetooth is in fact turned on.

Then we're gonna go down to Bluetooth pairing and then on your headset, make sure it's turned on. And typically on a headset they'll be a button somewhere to put it into pairing mode.

So on these there is a button on the back, we're gonna go ahead and hold that down. That's gonna put that into pairing mode. Then we're gonna hit Seek Bluetooth. And we should be able to find these here.

And now we're connected, you can see the green light on the headset and now it shows up here. Going back out of the menu. You can see the Bluetooth up there turn blue. So now we're connected, ready to use them.

So now this is gonna be great, you can use these on the go, driving down the road. You can see we turned them off, it disconnected. But we turn them back on, it should automatically reconnect. So there we go, it's that simple. Really easy procedure, it works with almost

any Bluetooth headset. And that's how you do it.

We're always trying to help you guys out.

This is Cody from BridgeCom Systems, 73.

I tried to use Powerbeats Pro headset – same distorsion as with airpod. Not usable.

The bluetooth implementation on these is the best I’ve seen on a ham radio — having a separate bluetooth PTT is brilliant, allows for a lot of options that no other radio has.

Unfortunately, when I use it with my airpods pro the audio is awful, seems pitch shifted and slightly garbled. I’m guessing there is a codec issue :-( Not sure if that’s something that anytone might be able to fix with a firmware update or not, but it would sure be awesome if I could use my airpods pro with this.
