I cannot connect to my Damson Jet
Please follow these steps:
If your Jets serial number begins with 13 (check on the underside for the serial number)
1. On your smart device (phone or tablet) open your Bluetooth settings and enter discovery mode. Ensure Bluetooth is switched on and is able to search for devices.
2. Make sure the device is not connected to another Bluetooth device while it is going through the pairing mode.
3. Identify the Left Damson Jet Speaker by looking on the bottom for a yellow sticker marked L.
4. Hold Down the Centre Power Button on the top. There will be three ascending beeps to announce Jet has powered up. The LED will blink blue. When the Left Speaker is on and Ready to Pair the Damson Logo Will Blink Blue. If/WHEN you hear an additional repeating set of two fast beeps, don’t worry, this means the Jet is searching for its twin.
5. Now hold the call/phone button (above the power button on the Jet) on the Left Speaker for about 5 seconds, or until you hear three slows beeps - The Jet is now in pairing mode and will show up on your smart device. (it can take up to 15 seconds to show up in the list)
6. On your smart device it should show Damson Jet in the Bluetooth search area. Select it and wait until it shows “connected”. Now turn off your Jet to finalise the set up process. <<<<<<< this last part is extremely important or you may experience choppy sound.
7. Wait until the smart device says it is not connected to Damson Jet then turn on both Jets hit connect on your phone/tablet.
8. When the Jet is connected to your phone the Damson Logo LED Will be in Solid Blue state.

Product Specific Questions
How does the Twist produce sound?
It uses the surfaces it is placed on in order to amplify the sound. Traditional speakers use a diaphragm to produce sound. The Twist uses Incisor Diffusion Technology.
My Twist is vibrating on the surface it is placed upon.
Ensure the Twist is placed on a smooth, clean and flat surface. Ensure the rubber pad is clear of dust and dirt. Wiping this with damp, soapy cloth will regain the stickiness.
For how long and by what means should I charge my Twist?
We recommend charging the Twist off the mains via a USB plug. The power from a laptop is generally not enough to ensure the battery is fully charged. For the first charge, we recommend a good 5 to 6 hours. Subsequent charges for 2 to 3 hours.
Can I use more than one Twist at once?
Not via Bluetooth but it is possible to “daisy chain” together as many Twists as you wish.
My Damson Jet crackles. How do I stop this?
This only happens occasionally on the first connection. Please turn off the Jets, wait 15 seconds and then restart the device. This should eliminate the crackling.
Why do I get intermittent sound from my Jet?
This is due to the positioning of your Jet in relation to your Bluetooth device. The left Jet requires a clear line of sight to you Bluetooth device. To overcome this, align your Jet and Bluetooth device in a triangular format. Alternatively, position them in a linear format ensuring the left Jet is the one positioned closet to your Bluetooth device.
Can I link two Jets (4 speakers) together?
No, it's not possible.
Is it possible to reset the Jets that came with the mount bundle?
1) Plug in the USB charging cable into a wall socket plug. Ensure the socket is turned on. The Jet should not be connected to the power cable.
2) Hold down the power button on your Damson Jet and at the same time, insert the power cable. The speaker will reboot and the solid light will go out.
Does the Jet work with the Metal Mount?
Yes, It certainly does.
Which hearing conditions will the Headbones work for?
Damson HeadBones work using bone conduction. If your condition still allows you to hear through bone conduction then HeadBones will work for you. The drivers sit on your temporal bone and use this to conduct the sound through to your inner ear. We do recommend you consult your audiologist.
Can I use Headbones to listen to my TV?
Yes if it is Bluetooth enabled, you can use it wirelessly. If your TV is not Bluetooth enabled it is possible to purchase an adaptor. HeadBones can also be plugged in via a 3.5mm cable, to your TV.
Can I select my next or previous track using Headbones?
The track select option is available just hold down the arrow buttons on the Headbones, the right button is to advance tracks, the left for going back.
How do I charge my Headbones?
Please charge from the mains using the micro USB which is provided The charging port for the Headbones can by found at the rear of the unit, next to the + and - buttons. We suggest an overnight charge to ensure the battery is fully charged.
What's the difference between the Vulcan and the Oyster?
We improved the sound quality and clarity of the Vulcan vastly when compared with Oyster. The Vulcan produces near distortion free sound with crystal clear highs and a deep bass. This provides excellent sound whether you listen to drum'n bass or classical music. The second most significant and a very visual change is that the Vulcan comes with metal grilles. Different coloured grilles are available to purchase through our online store in black, white or red. LED's indicates the "state" of the Vulcan and there are also voice prompts which will tell you when the Vulcan is connected and alerts you when the battery is running low.
