Connecting with an NFC-compatible device by One-touch (NFC)
By touching the speaker with an NFC-compatible device such as a smartphone, the speaker turns on automatically, then proceeds to pairing and BLUETOOTH connection.
- Compatible smartphones
- NFC-compatible smartphones with Android 4.1 or later installed
- Compatible Walkman models
- NFC-compatible Walkman models*1
*1 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.
- Turn down the volume of the device.
- Stop playback on the BLUETOOTH device to avoid sudden loud sound output from the speaker.
- Set the NFC function of the device to on.
- Touch the speaker with the device.
Unlock the screen of the device beforehand.
Keep touching the device on the N marked part of the speaker until the device responds (it may take a few seconds).
If the speaker is off, it will turn on when the device touches it.
Follow the on-screen instructions to establish the connection.
When the BLUETOOTH connection is established, (BLUETOOTH) indicator stays lit.
To disconnect, touch the speaker with the device again.
- Even if the speaker is not turned on, the (BLUETOOTH) indicator flashes when touching with a device. When the connection is established, the (BLUETOOTH) indicator lights up in white.
- If you cannot connect the speaker, try the following.
- Move the device over the N-mark part of the speaker slowly.
- If the device is in a case, remove the case.
- If you touch a device on the speaker, the device terminates the BLUETOOTH connection with the current device (NFC-compatible headset, etc.), and connects with the speaker (One-touch connection switching).
- When an audio cable is connected to the speaker’s AUDIO IN jack while the speaker and the BLUETOOTH device have been connected via BLUETOOTH connection, sound from the BLUETOOTH-connected device is not output from the speaker (the hands-free function is available). To listen to music from the BLUETOOTH device, disconnect the audio cable from the speaker’s AUDIO IN jack.
- If your device is a type that goes into standby mode in response to magnetic force, it may not be able to be connected by NFC.
- When using the Speaker Add function or Wireless Party Chain function, touch the speaker where the (BLUETOOTH) indicator flashes. The device cannot make a BLUETOOTH connection with the speaker where the (BLUETOOTH) indicator turns off.
