OontZ speakers are less popular than speakers from other brands. However, the speakers have comparably better features than most popular brands. For instance, they have an advanced feature that allows users to connect two speakers together, and if you turn them both off, they will try to reconnect the next time you power them on.
Below are guidelines to help fellow OontZ Angel 3 speaker users pair them to various devices and other speakers.
- You can connect OontZ Angle 3 speakers to source devices via Bluetooth or an AUX cable.
- When you power the speaker for the first time or after a reset, it automatically goes into pairing mode.
- However, if the speaker connects to a previously connected device, you can manually get it into pairing mode by pressing and holding the Bluetooth button for three to five seconds.
- You will know the speaker is in pairing mode if the Bluetooth LED flashes blue.
- If the Bluetooth LED is solid blue, the speaker is connected to a source device via Bluetooth or Aux.
- If the power LED flashes red when you power the speaker, the battery is low, and you should recharge the speaker.
- Some models of OontZ Angle 3 speakers can be paired together to output audio in dual stereo (mono) mode or full stereo mode.
Pairing OontZ Angle 3 Speakers to a Source Device Via Bluetooth
One of the ways to connect an OontZ Angle 3 speaker to a source device is to do it wirelessly through Bluetooth. The steps below describe how you can do this:
Power on the Speaker
First, power on the speaker and observe the power LED to understand the speaker’s battery status. The speaker’s power LED will light red and then go off after a few seconds to show the speaker has been turned on.
The power button is labeled with an icon which is a circle with a straight line partially cutting into it.
The power LED is usually found just above the power button, or the power button has an incorporated LED within it on some models like the OontZ Angle 3 Pro.
You can continue using the speaker even if it’s charging; just remember to unplug it when the battery is full.
Enable Pairing Mode
After powering the speaker, it should automatically go into pairing mode. However, if it automatically connects to a previously connected device, you can manually force the speaker into pairing mode by pressing the Bluetooth button for three to five seconds.
The Bluetooth LED will change from solid blue and start flashing blue to indicate the speaker is in pairing mode.
The Bluetooth button is labeled with the Bluetooth icon if you have trouble locating it.
How to Force Pairing Mode on Oontz Angle 3
Enable Bluetooth Connectivity on the Source Device
After getting the speaker in pairing mode, go to the source device, e.g., phone, tablet, or laptop, and enable Bluetooth connectivity.
Different devices follow different procedures for enabling Bluetooth connectivity; however, OontZ has provided steps on how to enable Bluetooth on various operating systems on their website. The instructions will help you understand how to enable Bluetooth on Android, iOS, or Windows devices.
After enabling Bluetooth on the source device, the OontZ speaker should appear on the list of available devices. The speaker’s name will be its model name followed by a number unique to your speaker.
Select the speaker, and your device and the speaker should be paired after a few seconds. You will notice the Bluetooth LED now lights solid blue.

Play Audio on the Speaker
At this point, the speaker and your device are paired, and you can listen to audio through the speaker.
Remember, the audio controls on the speaker and those on the source device are independent. Therefore, you can turn the source device’s volume up and use the speaker’s volume controls to adjust the volume to your preference.
Pairing OontZ Angle 3 Speakers to a Source Device Using an Aux Cable
Another alternative to connecting the speaker to a source device is a 3.5mm AUX audio cable.
OontZ Angle 3 speakers have an aux port, and most models come with the aux cable packaged, making this an easily achievable task.
To use the 3.5mm cable, ensure the speaker is powered on and not connected to any other device.
Then insert one end of the 3.5mm cable into the speaker’s Aux port.
Next, ensure the preferred source device is on, then insert the other end of the aux cable into the source device’s aux port.
If you have an OontZ Angle 3 speaker like the Angle 3 Pro 2nd Gen. with a source button, press the button to switch from Bluetooth to Aux input. You will know the speaker is in Aux input because the source button will light green. An icon of two interlocking circles labels the source button.
The speaker automatically goes to the Aux input source on other models without a source button when it notices the Aux connection.
You can now play audio through the speaker without any problems.
The aux port is usually next to or near the charging port, and they are both covered with a rubber flap to ensure the speakers remain waterproof.
Pairing OontZ Angle 3 Speakers Together
OontZ Angle 3 speakers have a dual audio feature that allows some models to connect to other speakers and provide a more immersive audio output.
If you wish to connect two or more similar OontZ speakers together, the steps below will help:
Pair the First Speaker to a Source Device
Ensure the first speaker (which I will refer to as the primary speaker or the Play control speaker) is connected to a source device.
It does not matter whether the connection is a wired or wireless, except for the OontZ Angle 3 Ultra, which requires a wireless connection.
Ensure the Bluetooth LED is blue or the source LED is green if you use the OontZ Angle 3 Pro in a wired setup.
Power on the Secondary Speaker
Next, power on the second speaker that you wish to connect to the primary speaker. Simply press the power button for two seconds, and you will see the LEDs on the speaker light up.
Ensure the secondary speaker stays in pairing mode and does not connect to any device. If you notice the Bluetooth LED is solid blue, long-press the Bluetooth button for three to five seconds until the Bluetooth LED starts flashing.
At this point, only the primary speaker should have a solid light.
Press the Play/Pause Button
Go to the primary speaker with the solid LED, and press and hold the Play/Pause button for three to five seconds.
Release it once you hear a ‘Dual pairing’ voice prompt and wait. After a few seconds, there will be another voice prompt from the primary speaker stating ‘Left Channel,’ and then the secondary speaker will state ‘Right channel.’
The primary/control speaker’s Bluetooth LED should be solid blue, and the LED above or before (on some models) the Play/Pause button should light solid white.
Only the Play/Pause LED on the secondary speaker should be solid white, and the Bluetooth LED should be off.
At this stage, you can play audio from the source device, and it will come out of both speakers in full stereo mode.

Change Between Full Stereo and Dual Stereo (Mono) Mode
If you wish to change the audio output mode, you can, but the process varies depending on the speaker’s model.
On the OontZ Angle 3 OontZ Dual speaker, double press the Bluetooth button on the primary speaker, and you will see the LED on the secondary speaker change from solid white to solid orange. This indicates a change from full stereo to dual stereo.
For some Oontz models, you have to double-press the Bluetooth buttons on both speakers.
Double pressing the button again will return the speaker to full stereo mode.
On the other models that support this feature, press and hold the next track (>) button on the primary speaker until you see the white LED turn orange or the speaker announce they are in dual stereo mode. This will take approximately five seconds.
Press and hold the next track button to return to full stereo mode.
Which Models Can Be Paired Together?
Not all OontZ Angle 3 speakers can be paired together. The models that support this feature are:
- ULTRA Pro
- 3XL ULTRA
You can only pair compatible models meaning you cannot pair an OontZ Angle 3XL ULTRA to an OontZ Angle 3 ULTRA Pro. You can only pair an OontZ Angle 3 ULTRA Pro with another OontZ Angle 3 ULTRA Pro.
Also, older generations of the same model cannot be paired with newer generations of the same model.
