This post gives Sony Speaker XB10 pairing instructions, which work with typical mobile devices. E.g. These include the iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad line of Apple phones, media players, and tablets.
Sony Speaker SRS XB10 Pairing, Step by Step Instructions
With your SRS XB10 turned OFF (power button is dark), run through this routine to pair it to your source BT mobile device. We’re using an iPad Air tablet for this demo.
1. Go to the Home Screen on your Mobile Device
Firstly, press the Home button to reveal the smart device’s Home screen.
2. Find the Settings App
We found ours on the second page of the Home screen, as shown next.
3. Bring up the Settings App
Thirdly, tap the Settings app icon.
The smart device then shows the first page of its settings, as shown in the next step.
4. Go to the Bluetooth Settings Page
Our Bluetooth Settings screen displays as follows. Note that our Bluetooth is enabled here. But since our test Sony Speaker SRS XB10 is currently OFF (so it is not in discovery mode), it does not show up in the Bluetooth devices list. Also, we don’t see it there since we’ve never paired this speaker with our mobile device before.
5. Turn On your Sony Speaker Model SRS XB10
Power up the XB10 by quickly pressing its Power button. E.g. We point this button out with the green arrow, in the next picture.
The speaker then powers up, and its status lamp slowly flashes white. This means that it’s ready to receive a Bluetooth connection request, although it is not in pairing mode. Not yet anyhow.
Moreover, since our iPad does not know about this speaker, the SRS XB10 will not pair with it automatically.
6. Put the Speaker in Discovery Mode
Now, to see the XB10 on your device, place it into Bluetooth discovery mode. So to do that, press and hold the Power button, and release it when the speaker beeps.
E.g. Find this control as shown in the next picture, that we point out with the green arrow.
When you press the Power button, the SRS XB10 makes a couple beeps. Also, the status lamp changes from a slow flashing white to fast flashing white.
7. Find the Speaker on your Mobile Device
See the screen shot next. In fact, we found our XB10, as again, we point out with the green arrow.
8. Pair with your Speaker
Tap the listed speaker in the discovered devices list.
Your mobile device then pairs with the SRS XB10.
E.g. The the mobile device’s Bluetooth Settings screen might then change to look something like the following. Note the now-paired SRS XB10 entry, as pointed at by the green arrows in the next screenshot.
9. Done with Sony Speaker SRS XB10 Pairing !
At last, we have now successfully paired our XB10 with with a common mobile tablet device.
