Unhappy P2 and Plantronics Backbeat Go 2?

I just got a pair of the new Plantronics Backbeat GO 2 Bluetooth headphones and I cannot get them to pair with the P2. They paired fine with my Droid Razr Maxx. Does anybody have suggestions how I can get them to pair or is the P2 just too old and not compatible with the new headphones. Thanks for any help

The Plantronics is bluetooth 2.1+EDR according to https://www.bluetooth.org/tpg/QLI_viewQDL.cfm?qid=20946
The YP-P2 is bluetooth 2.0 https://www.bluetooth.org/tpg/QLI_viewQDL.cfm?qid=13695

They should be compatible I would say.
Did you try pairing as explained in the user manual page 117? http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/co...ENGLISH3.0.pdf

Talking Thanks.

Thank you so much for your help. The guides showed what I was doing wrong and I was able to successfully pair the two devices.

Default Battery Use

Just in case anybody is interested I do think there is a difference between using the headphones with a Bluetooth 2.0 and a Bluetooth 2.1 device. I found when I use the Backbeats with the Samsung P2 I get the low battery warning at about 2 hours. When I used the Backbeats with my Droid Razr Maxx smartphone and check the power level at 2 hours it gave me a high reading. I assume Bluetooth 2.1 is just more efficient and uses less power.

According to Wikipedia:
Quote:
Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR
Bluetooth Core Specification Version 2.1 + EDR was adopted by the Bluetooth SIG on 26 July 2007.

The headline feature of 2.1 is secure simple pairing (SSP): this improves the pairing experience for Bluetooth devices, while increasing the use and strength of security.

2.1 allows various other improvements, including "Extended inquiry response" (EIR), which provides more information during the inquiry procedure to allow better filtering of devices before connection; and sniff subrating, which reduces the power consumption in low-power mode.
So indeed that may be true. But this seems to concern only the standby mode. I'm a bit surprised there is such a battery life difference when you're actually listening to music.
