Pairing occurs when two Bluetooth® devices communicate with each other and establish a connection. A record of information about this connection is then stored in the memory of each device. Once you pair a device with the SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker, you should not have to pair it again. The speaker can pair with up to six Bluetooth® devices. However, it can only connect to, and play audio from, one device at a time.
Pairing with a Bluetooth® device
To pair with a Bluetooth® device, follow these steps:
With the Bluetooth® device and the SoundLink® Mini speaker both turned on, press Bluetooth® on the speaker to make it discoverable. The Bluetooth® indicator on the speaker blinks blue to show that it's discoverable
Set your Bluetooth® device to "Discoverable." This will allow your device to discover the SoundLink® Mini speaker
Locate the Bluetooth® device list in the user interface of your device. Select "Bose® Mini SoundLink®" from the list
If your Bluetooth® device prompts you for a passcode, enter digits 0000 (four zeros) and press "OK." Some devices also ask you to accept the connection.
The speaker indicates that pairing is complete when you hear an audible tone and the Bluetooth® indicator turns solid white
To connect to a previously paired device, follow these steps:
On the speaker, press POWER to turn it on. The Bluetooth® indicator flashes white
On your mobile device, turn on Bluetooth® if it is not already on. The speaker indicates pairing is complete when you hear an audible tone and the Bluetooth® indicator remains solid white
Note: if the speaker is in discoverable mode (blinking blue), and you want to go back into connecting mode, press the Bluetooth® button. The indicator blinks white and the Bose® SoundLink® Mini speaker goes into connecting mode.
The Bose® SoundLink® Mini speaker memory can hold up to six paired devices. When the memory is full and an additional device is paired, the least recently used device is deleted from memory and replaced by the newly paired device.
To clear the memory of all devices, press and hold Bluetooth® for about 10 seconds until you hear a tone. All Bluetooth® devices will be cleared from the speaker, and the Bose® SoundLink® Mini speaker becomes discoverable.
