Turning the speaker on

Connecting the device via Bluetooth®

Reconnect mode

After it turns on, the speaker will be in reconnect mode and will search for the most recently connected audio output device. If possible, the speaker establishes this connection automatically.

During the search, the status LED fl ashes blue at 5-second intervals.

When the connection is established, a short alert tone will sound on the speaker, and the status LED will fl ash blue once after 4 seconds and then at 2-second intervals.

The devices are now connected to each other and you can start playing audio.

Pairing mode

After searching for several seconds, if no most recently connected audio output device is found, a short alert tone will sound and the speaker will switch automatically into pairing mode, which enables the connection of a new audio output device.

The status LED will rapidly flash blue.

  • Turn on Bluetooth on your audio output device and start the search for Bluetooth devices nearby.
  • Select the speaker “MD 43989” from the device list on your audio output device and pair the devices with each other.

You will find further information about device pairing in the operating instructions of the audio output device concerned.

If a connection password is requested, enter “OOOO”.


When pairing is successful, a short alert tone will sound on the speaker, and the status LED will flash blue once after 4 seconds and then at 2-second intervals.

The devices are now connected to each other and you can start playing audio.

If the speaker does not receive any signal within 8 minutes, it will automatically turn off to save battery power.

Changing from connected mode to pairing mode

Even if an active connection to an audio output device already exists, it is possible to connect another audio output device to the speaker without needing to turn the speaker off.

The status LED will rapidly flash blue.

  • Now connect the devices as described in the “Pairing mode“ section.

Turning the device off

  • Turn the speaker off by pressing and holding on the top of the device until you hear a series of tones.

The status LED will go out and the Bluetooth connection to a connected audio output device will be automatically terminated.

  • Press and hold on all the speakers except the host device speaker for at least 3 seconds.

A series of tones will sound on all paired speakers and each of their status LEDs will light up red.

The status LED on the host device speaker will rapidly flash blue and will be ready for pairing with an audio output device.

  • Now pair the host device speaker with the audio output device as described in the “Pairing mode“ section.

The paired speakers will not be listed separately on the device list on your audio output device, since they are already connected to the host device speaker.

After successful pairing, an alert tone will sound on all paired speakers, and the status LED will fl ash blue once after 4 seconds and then at 2-second intervals.
