To pair your SRS XE300 Sony BT speaker with a BT source device for the first time, or to refresh old connection info in that device, you first have to know how to place this speaker into discovery mode.  Now in this mode, this speaker broadcasts its name and currently valid connection handles over the wireless airwaves, so that nearby Bluetooth source devices can find and link to it.  Thus in this post, we show you how to make the Sony SRS XE300 discoverable, to let you pair it with phones, tablets, computers, and smart speakers.  Then, you can play your favorite tunes from those devices, on this great sounding XE300 column speaker.
