This post supplies Sony SRS XE200 speaker pairing directions, by way of Bluetooth. to link it to common portable devices. E.g. These  include the Apple line of device like the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Sony SRS XE200 Pairing Directions, Step by Step

3. Bring up the Settings App

Thirdly, touch the Settings app icon.

The smart device then shows the first page of its settings, as we see in the next step.





4. Go to the Bluetooth Settings  Page to Continue with Sony SRS XE200 Speaker Pairing

Our Bluetooth Settings screen displays as follows. Note that our Bluetooth is running here. But since our Sony SRS XE200 is currently shut OFF (is not in Bluetooth discovery mode), it does not show up in the Bluetooth devices list. Also, we don’t see it since we’ve never paired this speaker with our mobile device before.

Now, to see this speaker on your device, place it into Bluetooth discovery / pairing mode. So to accomplish that, press and hold the Pairing button, and release when you hear the rising pitch beep sequence and the speaker announces, “Bluetooth pairing,” in a lady’s voice.
