    Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

    Pairing the Xperia Ear with an Android device

    For your Xperia Ear to work properly, you must install the latest version of the Xperia Ear application on your Android device, and then pair it with your Xperia Ear.

    When using the Xperia Ear with a ‎Wi-Fi only Android tablet, the host application may not be available for download, and functions such as calling, text messaging, mobile data traffic and the Assistant will not work.

    The Xperia Ear application is available on Google Play™. We recommend using a ‎Wi-Fi connection to avoid data traffic costs.

    To set up your Xperia Ear using NFC

    NFC pairing
    1. Make sure that your Xperia Ear is charged.
    2. Make sure that NFC is turned on and that the screen is active and unlocked.
    3. Touch the NFC area of your Xperia Ear against the NFC detection area of the Android device, then follow the on-screen instructions to install the Xperia Ear application and pair your Xperia Ear with an Android device.

    If you have problems pairing your Xperia Ear with an Android device using NFC, you can pair them manually using Bluetooth®.

    You can connect and use your Xperia Ear with two devices at the same time - for example a phone and a tablet, or a work phone and a private phone. To connect and use your Xperia Ear with two devices, follow the steps outlined above on the second device. When you have two Android devices connected to your Xperia Ear, the Assistant is only available on one of the devices.

    To set up your Xperia Ear using Bluetooth®

    1. Make sure that your Xperia Ear is charged.
    2. Make sure that you have installed or updated the Xperia Ear application to the latest version on your device.
    3. Turn on Bluetooth®, then scan for Bluetooth® devices and select XEA10 from the list of available devices.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions.

    Reconnecting the Xperia Ear

    If Bluetooth® is turned on, your Xperia Ear automatically performs a series of reconnection attempts. If this automatic reconnection is unsuccessful, you can use the Assistant/Call key to try again manually, or you can pair again using NFC or Bluetooth®.
