Putting a Katinkas Kaboom Bluetooth Speaker Into Pairing Mode

I reviewed the Katinkas Kaboom Bluetooth speaker recently and said I’d write a quick post on putting it into pairing mode as I had to figure it out myself.

In the interests of trying new things I thought I’d add a video to this as well. A picture is worth a thousand words and all that!

It’s pretty simple to do.


Find the power button.

Hold the button down to turn the speaker on. You’ll hear a beep and the lights will flash on red and then blue. 

Keep the button held down. You’ll hear a second, different beep and the light will pulse much faster (blue).

It’s now in pairing mode.

Your device (phone/tablet/laptop) will now be able to find the speaker when you use the Bluetooth pairing options to add a device, it’ll show up as “Katinkas”. There isn’t a passcode or anything so it’ll just connect straight away.
