Next, power on the X11 again, as described in step 1 above.

4. Done with How to Reset the Sony SRS X11 Bluetooth Speaker !

The reset is now finished. So you may now sell or gift the unit, or pair it again with your favorite Bluetooth devices.

After a reset, the speaker no longer automatically connects with any previously paired Bluetooth device. Thus, to restore this auto pairing, you manually pair the X11 with a device. Then after that, any time that both speaker and that device have Bluetooth turned on, and they’re near to each other, pairing would automatically take place once more.
