Press Change function (4) until you find Bluetooth mode while your Urban Box 2 is on. At this point, you will be able to pair the speaker with your smartphone or tablet.
Once your "Urban Box 2" appears on your smartphone or tablet screen, press "connect". The devices will be connected immediately and without codes. You will hear a sound that confirms both devices have been paired correctly.
At this point, you will be able to start playback on your smartphone or tablet. The Bluetooth wireless connection range is up to 10 metres.
Your Urban Box 2 connects to the last paired device automatically when you switch it on once again, provided that the Bluetooth connection on your smartphone or tablet is enabled.
Important: Your Urban Box 2 turns off automatically after 5 minutes with Bluetooth® mode enabled, if not paired with any device.
Call control (Hands-free function)
You can manage your calls from the speaker itself. To do so, pair the Urban Box 2 with your smartphone.
When receiving a call, the song you are listening to stops and the ringing tone sounds instead. Press Call control (1) to answer an incoming call. Press it once again to hang up.
Important: If you receive an incoming call while TWS mode is enabled, you will only hear the voice of the person who calls through the speaker connected to your smartphone (left channel).*
TWS (True Wireless Stereo)
This option makes it possible to wirelessly pair another Urban Box 2 to get twice as much power and create a stereo sound system made up of two different channels: left and right.
To use this function for the first time, turn on your two Urban Box 2 and press and hold Change Function/ TWS (4) on both speakers for 2 seconds. A few seconds later you will hear a sound to confirm that both devices have been successfully synchronized. Enable then Bluetooth on your source device and connect your "Urban Box 2".
From that moment on, you will be able to play music via Bluetooth. You will hear the music through both speakers at the same time. One speaker will be assigned the left channel (L) and the other one the right channel (R).
The next time you turn on both speakers, they will pair with one another automatically.
If you want to disable this function, press and hold Change function/ TWS (4) on any of them. Both speakers will be disconnected. Press the very same button if you want to reconnect them.
Switch to the next/ previous track and adjust the volume pressing the corresponding buttons on any of the speakers while TWS mode is enabled. If you turn up the volume on any of the speakers, you will be turning up the volume on both of them at the same time.
Important: This is only possible if Bluetooth mode is enabled. In all other playback modes (USB, microSD, FM radio or line-in) a TWS connection is not possible.
Auxiliary audio input
Your Urban Box 2 also features an Auxiliary audio input (9) to connect your external devices using the provided audio cable.
Important: It is not possible to manage music playback from the speaker while using this mode. You will have to use the music player instead.
Before using the FM radio function, it is necessary to carry out a search of all stations available. The radio stations will be saved to the speaker internal memory. It is therefore not necessary to carry out a new search each time you switch it on. You will only have to do this if you place the device in a new location or if you change the frequency of the saved radio station.
In order to carry out a search of all radio stations, press Change function (4), until the FM radio mode appears on screen. Press and hold Change function (4) for 2 seconds. The process may take a few minutes. Once the search has been completed, press and hold Volume +/ Next (2) or Volume -/ Back (3) to select the radio station you want to hear from all saved radio stations.
If you place the speaker somewhere else, you will have to carry out a new search to obtain a proper radio wave reception.
Your Urban Box 2 will save the last selected radio station when you turn it off and on once again.
Important: The battery charging process may interfere with radio signals depending on the AC/DC power adapter used.
The device plays .mp3 and .wav files from microSD cards (up to 64 GB). The contents play automatically a few seconds after inserting the microSD card or USB stick.
If you turn off the speaker or remove the storage unit, the internal memory will save the moment where you paused playback. If you connect the same removable storage unit once again, music playback will resume and the last song you listened to will be then played.
Press and hold Volume +/ Next (2) or Volume -/ Back (3) to move to the next or previous song.
Press and hold Change function (4) to enable shuffle mode. You will hear a sound to confirm this mode has been enabled. Shuffle mode will be disabled automatically when switching off the speaker.
The root folders and files of your external cards or sticks will be read in chronological order and the songs included in your folders in alphabetical order.
Here you have a diagram of the reading order:
