If you pair your speaker from your phone’s Bluetooth settings before setting up your speaker with the BLAST & MEGABLAST by Ultimate Ears app, you may not be able to complete the setup successfully. Try the steps below then try the setup again.
  1. Go to your phone’s Bluetooth settings and in the Paired Devices list, unpair the speaker. The steps for doing this may differ depending on your device.
    For example, Settings > Connections > Bluetooth > Tap the gear icon > tap Forget device.
  2. Turn Bluetooth on your phone OFF and then ON briefly. 
  3. Turn the speaker ON and then press and hold the power button (the large one on top) and the volume down button (on the front of the speaker) at the same time for 10 seconds
  4. Once you hear the speaker make a clapping sound, it’s successfully cleared its local cache and will then shut down
  5. Delete the app and then download and reinstall a fresh version from the Play store.
  6. Turn the speaker back ON.
  7. DON’T pair to Bluetooth — instead, launch the app and go through the setup steps as instructed in the app. The app will prompt you to pair during the setup process.
  8. Make sure you have access to a Wi-Fi network so you can update the firmware on the speaker.
The most common reason for Bluetooth pairing failures between the app and your speaker is because the app on your phone or tablet isn’t the latest version. Check the app store for a  newer version of the app. After you’ve updated the app, try pairing with your speaker again. In many cases, this will resolve the problem.
If you are trying to set up WiFi on your speaker and receive a “Speaker Connection Lost” message, you may be running an old version of the app on your phone or tablet. Check the app store and update the app if there is a newer version available. After updating, try pairing your speaker again and set up WiFi.
To set up your speaker, first download the Ultimate Ears app. This ensures that both your phone and speaker are ready to take full advantage of all the features your speaker comes with.
  1. Get the latest version of the Ultimate Ears App from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
  2. Make sure you have your wireless network information ready — during setup, you will need to connect to WiFi to update your speaker’s firmware and set up Alexa.
  3. Turn your speaker on before you begin the setup in the app — this ensures the app finds your speaker. If you have multiple speakers, you can add the additional speakers to the app once you’ve set up your first speaker.
  4. Follow the setup steps in the app — the app will walk you through connecting to WiFi and Bluetooth, updating the speaker’s firmware, as well as setting up Alexa.
BLAST and MEGABLAST can be used in any country as a Bluetooth speaker.
Android To close and then restart the app on an Android device: 1. Tap the Overview button. The icon is generally a square or two overlapping rectangles. It can be located on the bottom left or bottom right depending on your device. This will bring up all recent apps and apps running in the background. 2. In the list of recent apps, find the Ultimate Ears app. 3. You can either tap the “X” on the app or tap, hold and swipe the app off screen — this will also depend on your device. 4. Find the Ultimate Ears app and tap it to relaunch. iOS To close and then restart the app on an iOS device: 1. Double-click on the Home button to bring up recently used apps. 2. Swipe left or right to find the Ultimate Ears app. 3. Swipe upwards on the Ultimate Ears app to close it. 4. Find the Ultimate Ears app and tap it to relaunch.

1. Briefly press the “-“ (volume down), “+” (volume up) and small action/Bluetooth buttons at the same time (See picture below).

2. Next, press the large power button on the speaker and it will turn back ON.

Note: it may take a few moments for the speaker to reconnect to Alexa or repair to your mobile device.

3. After resetting the speaker, it’s highly RECOMMENDED that you use the Ultimate Ears app (available from the app stores for iOS and Android) to check for available firmware updates for your speaker. To do this, launch the app > tap on the settings icon > scroll to the bottom of the screen and press “Check for Updates.” (Depending on the version of the app you may need to disable Automatic Updates before you can manually check for updates. If prompted, follow the instructions to update your speaker’s firmware.

In order to use Amazon Alexa, you will need to accept Amazon’s terms and conditions for the service.
If the Amazon sign-in fails, something may have gone wrong while transferring your Amazon account credentials to the speaker. Quit the app and try launching it again.
This can happen for a couple of reasons:
  • You’ve already signed into the Amazon shopping app on your mobile device.
  • You’ve already accepted Alexa’s terms and conditions for your speaker (if you’ve set up your speaker already and have reset it or are setting it up again)
If this happens, sign out of your Amazon app then follow the steps below to sign into your account from the Ultimate Ears app.
  1. In the Ultimate Ears app, in the top right, tap the Gear icon to go to speaker settings.
  2. Find the Amazon Alexa section and tap it to sign into your account.
  3. Tap Sign In to add your Amazon account.
Amazon owns and operates the Alexa voice service as a convenient voice assistant for customers. Alexa is meant as a tool to perform requested actions and get information, whereas Amazon.com is an online shopping site. Alexa can be used for shopping on Amazon, but it's not exclusively for that.
You must have an Amazon account to use Alexa.
If you connect your speaker to your device through Bluetooth, the display name in your device’s Bluetooth devices list will be either BLAST or MEGABLAST. Once you’ve connected, you can change the name of your speaker from the app. With the speaker connected, open the app and in the top right, tap the gear icon. You can then change the name of your speaker by tapping on the Speaker Name field.
You can connect to Bluetooth directly, but we recommend using the app for the best experience. You’ll also need the app to connect to WiFi, use Alexa and update your firmware.
Your Amazon account is used to sign you into Alexa. It’s how Alexa distinguishes you from someone else and how your information is protected from others. Each time you make a request to Alexa, she’ll retrieve the most relevant information based on your Amazon account information.
To connect your speaker to WiFi, you’ll need the Ultimate Ears app. The app will walk you through the initial setup of your speaker which includes connecting to WiFi. The app will also allow you to connect to a different WiFi network if you bring your speaker outside of your network.
If you’re having issues logging into Amazon during setup, check the following:
  • Make sure that your password and email address match — you can try logging in on www.amazon.com to test your login information.
  • If you don’t have an Amazon account, you can create one for free at www.amazon.com
The Bluetooth and WiFi connections of your Ultimate Ears speakers give you access to different features.

  • TuneIn Radio
  • Deezer
  • Pandora
  • Spotify

Bluetooth allows you to stream other music/content services directly to the speaker as long as you have the app for the service. Here’s a list of a few services you can stream through Bluetooth:
  • YouTube Red
  • Apple Music
  • Local music (iTunes, Google Play Music)

  3. You will hear a tone indicating that the speaker is connected and the Bluetooth LED will be solid white.
To set up your speaker, first download the Ultimate Ears app. This ensures that both your phone and speaker are ready to take full advantage of all the features your speaker comes with.
  1. Get the latest version of the Ultimate Ears App from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
  2. Make sure you have your wireless network information ready — during setup, you will need to connect to WiFi to update your speaker’s firmware and set up Alexa.

  • Make sure your router and speaker aren’t in an enclosed area, such as a cabinet — this may weaken wireless signal strength.
  • Turn both your speaker and wireless router Off, then back on again.
Advanced Troubleshooting Steps NOTE: For the following, you may need to access your router or network device’s setup pages. See your router’s documentation if you need help.
  • Make sure you’re entering the correct network information (ex. SSID (wireless network name and encryption password) during setup.
TIP: Some of these parameters may be long. For example, WEP128 has 26 characters. Enter this password carefully, or opt for a security type with a shorter password (ex. WPA has only an 8-character minimum).
  • If your SSID (wireless network name) is hidden, take care when entering this during setup. SSIDs are generally case sensitive and they recognize spaces in the text string.
  • Make sure your router and other network appliances have the latest firmware updates.
  • Try changing wireless channels. An area with heavy network saturation can cause problems with networks on the same channel.
  • If your network includes repeaters, range extenders and access points, try disabling these temporarily to ensure that your speaker is connecting properly to your main router.
  • If you have a dual-band router, make sure your 2.4ghz SSID and 5ghz SSID are different to prevent confusion between the devices while connecting.
  • If you have additional security settings on your router, try temporarily disabling them or configuring them accordingly.
Example: Some routers let you regulate connected devices using a unique device ID called a MAC address. IF only specified MAC Addresses are allowed to connect, your speaker may not connect properly.
Because most enterprise WiFi networks require additional credentials or have extra security measures in place, we do not recommend setting your speaker up to connect to enterprise networks.
