The cube makes two ding-dong sounding beeps when it powers up, whether it links to a nearby device or not. But whether or not it does so, this reset routine works the same way, as follows.

2. Press and Hold the Volume DOWN , Volume UP, and Power Buttons at the Same Time

3. Check that your Sony Cube Speaker Did Indeed Reset

Next, power on the cube again, as we detailed in step 1 above.

Note that after a reset, this speaker comes up in discovery mode. The Status lamp blinks white quickly to announce this.  This signals you to look for this speaker on a nearby BT device, and pair to it if you so desire.

4. Done with Sony Cube Speaker Reset !

Reset is now done. So you may now sell or gift the Sony cube, or pair it again with your favorite Bluetooth devices.

After this reset, the speaker no longer automatically pairs with any previously connected Bluetooth device. Thus, to restore this auto pairing, you manually pair the cube with a device first. Then any time that both speaker and that device have Bluetooth turned on, and they’re in range of one another, pairing automatically takes place once more.
