Bluetooth wireless is a quick and easy way 
to connect a smartphone to a speaker or a 
headset. There are basically two steps to 
making Bluetooth work.

PAIRING: 

 

The two devices get to know each other.

CONNECTING:

 

 

The two devices do something together (like 
play music).

“Hi. i’m a phone.”

This guide takes you through the steps to get 
started.

Getting to know Bluetooth

“Hi phone. 

i’m a speaker.”

Step 2: charge the SL

Before you start using the HEX SL speaker 

for the first time, it’s a good idea to charge it 

completely. 
To charge the speaker: 

Plug the included USB 

cable into the 

Charge 

jack on the back of the 

speaker. 
Plug the other end of 

the USB charging cable 

into a power source, like 

a computer or a USB 

charging adapter. 
The charging indicator on 

the front of the speaker 

is red while the speaker 

is charging. It turns green 

when the speaker is fully 

charged. 

Note: You can use the speaker 
while it’s charging.
