UE Roll Pairing Instructions for the Roll UE Speaker

This post offers general UE Roll pairing instructions. Start with your Ultimate Ears speaker (UE) powered OFF (all dark back panel LEDs). Then, follow these directions to pair it with most any Bluetooth device.  In this demo, we show how this pairing works on our iPad Air mobile computer. But a similar routine works for other iOS devices, and Android phones and tablets as well.





UE Roll Pairing Instructions, Step by Step

1. Visit the Home Screen on your Mobile Device to Pair

Press the Home button to get to the  Home   iPad page.  See our  Home  screen as shown next.

2. Find the Settings  App

We found ours on the second page of the  Home  screen on our tablet.

3. Bring up the Settings App to Continue with UE Roll Pairing 

Tap the Settings app icon.

The device then puts up the first page of its  Settings  screen, as shown in the next screenshot

4. Go to the  Bluetooth Settings  Page

Tap the  Bluetooth  item, as pointed at by the dark green arrow in the last screenshot above.

Our  Bluetooth Settings screen then appears as follows. Note that our Bluetooth is switched ON here. But since the UE Roll speaker is currently OFF, it does not show in either the  My Devices  or  Other Devices lists on the tablet yet,  Why?  Because we’ve never paired it with this device before.  Plus, the speaker is not yet broadcasting its BT connection info. See this case, that looks something like as shown next.

Note in this picture that there’s no UE Roll listed yet.





5. Turn On your UE Roll Speaker

Turn on this UE by quickly pressing its  Power button. See this button, pointed at by the green arrow, in the next picture.

6. Put your UE Roll into Pairing Mode to Continue with UE Roll Pairing 

Now, to see your UE Roll on your tablet / phone, place the Roll into BT pairing mode. For that, press and release the Bluetooth button, as highlighted in the next picture.

When you press this Pairing button, the speaker makes several tapping-on-bongos sounds. Plus, an LED in this button starts quickly flashing white. See this in the last picture above.

7. Find your UE Roll on your Bluetooth Source Device

See the picture next. We found ours, as circled in green.

8. Pair with your UE Roll Speaker

Tap the listed speaker in the  Other Devices  section of the  Bluetooth Devices  list, shown above.





Your device then pairs with the Roll (appears as “UE Roll” in this demo).

The  Bluetooth Settings screen then changes to display something akin to the following.

Note that the UE speaker now shows as connected, as circled inside the green oval in the last picture.

9. UE Roll Pairing Done !

We have finally paired our UE Roll with a typical mobile device successfully.  Audio output from that device now plays on this wireless speaker, which, we hope, is what you want.

Later.
