Connecting with an NFC-compatible device by One-touch (NFC)
By touching the speaker with an NFC-compatible device, such as a smartphone, while the speaker is powered, the speaker starts pairing and proceeds to a BLUETOOTH connection.
NFC-compatible smartphones with Android™ 5.0 or later installed
Compatible WALKMAN® models
NFC-compatible WALKMAN® models*
* Even if your WALKMAN® is compatible with the NFC function, it may not be able to make a BLUETOOTH connection with the speaker by One-touch. For details on the compatible models, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the WALKMAN® .
NFC (Near Field Communication) is a technology enabling short-range wireless communication between various devices, such as smartphones and IC tags.
Thanks to the NFC function, data communication - for example, BLUETOOTH pairing - can be achieved easily by simply touching NFC-compatible devices together (i.e., at the N-mark symbol or location designated on each device).
Do the following before starting.
Stop playback on the device.
Turn down the volume of the device and speaker to avoid sudden loud sound output from the speaker. Depending on the device, the volume of the device will be synchronized with the speaker.
Cancel the screen lock on the device.
- Set the NFC function of the device to on.
- Touch and hold the N-mark symbol of the speaker with the N-mark symbol of the device until the device vibrates. (It may take a few seconds.)
- Follow the instructions on the BLUETOOTH device screen to establish a BLUETOOTH connection.
When the BLUETOOTH connection is established, the speaker beeps and the BLUETOOTH indicator switches from flashing to a steady light.
To disconnect the BLUETOOTH connection, touch the N-mark symbol on the NFC-compatible device to the N-mark symbol on the speaker once again.
If the BLUETOOTH connection is not established, try the following:
Keep the NFC-compatible device touched on the N-mark symbol on the speaker until the device vibrates.
Keep the NFC-compatible device touched on the N-mark symbol on the speaker and move the device slowly around.
If the NFC-compatible device is in a case, remove the case.
If the speaker is connected with another device via a BLUETOOTH connection, touching the NFC-compatible device to the speaker disconnects the connection and establishes a BLUETOOTH connection with the speaker (One-touch connection switching).
