Frequently Asked Questions


HOW DO I SETUP MY NIMA?


You can connect your NIMA to your smartphone, tablet or other device using either Bluetooth or the auxiliary input.


BLUETOOTH - HOW TO PAIR YOUR DEVICE


Here is how to get started: 

  1. Turn the speaker on by pressing the power button on the back of the speaker. The power indicator will glow, the Bluetooth connect button (to the left of the power button) will blink rapidly, and you will hear a tone indicating the speaker is ready to pair.
  2. On your Bluetooth device, go to the Bluetooth menu and scan for devices (make sure Bluetooth is enabled).
  3. Select NIMA from the list of devices.

NOTE: NIMA volume is set to maximum when you pair it to an iOS device for the first time.

Once paired and connected, you’ll hear an audible confirmation from the speaker. This means your NIMA is ready to use. You can pair additional devices with your speaker, see “Pairing additional Bluetooth devices with my NIMA”


AUXILLARY INPUT


 Try these tips: 

  1. Turn the speaker on by pressing the power button on the top of the speaker.
  2. Connect the speaker to your Bluetooth device using a 3.5mm analog cable (not included).

NOTE: Use only a 3-pole (non-microphone or inline remote cable) auxiliary cable.

NOTE: If a Bluetooth device is connected to the NIMA while playing audio from an auxiliary connection, the Bluetooth device will take priority and the stream from the auxiliary device will stop.

IMPORTANT: The USB connection is solely for charging your NIMA. It won’t enable you to use your speaker as an audio-output device when connected to a computer.


HOW DO I UPDATE THE SOFTWARE ON MY NIMA?


 A: Software updates for your NIMA can be done using the NIMA app. Download it from the Apple App store for your iOS device or from the Google Play store for your Android device.

Once you have the NIMA app, here’s how to apply the update:

  1. Connect your NIMA to your smarphone or tablet.
  2. Open the app.
  3. Tap MORE
  4. Tap the Update Now message to begin the update.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF THE AUDO IS DISTORTED OR DROPS OUT ON MY NIMA?


 If you’re having trouble with audio distortion or drop-outs on your NIMA, try these suggestions:

  • Move the audio source closer – it might be out of the range of your speaker.
  • Move away from other sources of wireless signal – you could be experiencing interference.
  • Make sure your speaker has enough battery power (connect it to a power source with the supplied adapter).
  • Adjust the volume on both the audio source and your speaker.
  • Restart both your speaker and the audio source.
  • Re-pair your device with your speaker (see “How do I pair additional Bluetooth devices with my NIMA?”).
  • If you’re using two NIMA speakers (in Double Up mode), try disconnecting and streaming to one speaker only.

NOTE: If you’re streaming audio content from the internet, it could be with the internet connection and not your speaker.


WHY WON'T MY BLUETOOTH DEVICE CONNECT TO MY NIMA?


 If your Bluetooth device won’t connect to your NIMA, try the following:

  • Make sure your device is paired with your speaker and Bluetooth is active (see “How do I pair additional Bluetooth devices with my NIMA?”).
  • Place your Bluetooth device closer to the speaker – it might be out of range.
  • Move your Bluetooth device and speaker away from other wireless sources – you could be experiencing interference.
  • If you have multiple NIMA speakers, make sure you’re connected to the correct one.
  • The NIMA can be connected to up to ONE device at a time – make sure you don’t already have two devices connected.
  • Turn your NIMA off, and then back on again.

NOTE: If this is the first time you’re pairing a device with your speaker, you don’t need to press the Bluetooth connection button. It comes out of the box ready to pair.


CAN I USE MY NIM AWITH MORE THAN ONE DEVICE AT A TIME?


 Your NIMA can have one device paired with it, and you can connect to two speakers playing the same song at a time.


HOW DO I USE MY NIMA FOR PHONE CALLS?


 You can use your NIMA as a speakerphone once it’s turned on and connected to your smartphone. Here’s how:

  1. Make or answer a call on your phone:

B: Android – On most Android smartphones, the call will default to the NIMA (speakerphone). Turn Headset mode off on your smartphone to take the call directly.

  1. Adjust the call volume from either the phone or speaker.
  2. When you’re finished with the call, end the call on your phone.

NOTE: Skype may or may not work on a Bluetooth speakerphone. This depends on your smartphone’s make and model, and Skype settings.

  • Pause the stream from the second device that isn’t currently being used.
  • Turn Bluetooth off on the second device.
  • If the primary Bluetooth device is a Mac computer, click on the “X” next to the NIMA from the Bluetooth preference pane in System Preferences.

NOTE: You’ll have to go through the pairing process again to pair your NIMA to your Macintosh computer if you do this. (See “Pairing additional Bluetooth devices with my NIMA” for help.)


WHAT CAN I DO IF THE VOLUME ISN'T SYNCHRONIZED BETWEEN MY APPLE DEVICE AND MY NIMA?


 The volume settings between your NIMA and Apple device can sometimes get out of synchronization. If this happens, try the following:

  • Turn the Bluetooth connection on your device off, and then back on again.
  • Turn your device off, and then back on.

I CAN'T CONNECT MY DEVISE TO MY IOS?


If your iOS device no longer connects to your NIMA, try the following:

  • Turn your NIMA off and then back on.
  • Turn your iOS device off and then back on.

If your iOS device still won’t connect, you should re-pair your device with the NIMA. Here’s how:

  2. Tap Forget this Device.
  3. Turn your speaker on.

WHY CAN'T I SWITCH BETWEEN TWO CONNECTED DEVICES?


Some devices will hold a connection with NIMA even when the stream is paused or the connection is idle.

To fix this issue, try the following on the device you no longer want to use:

  • Disconnect from the NIMA.

OR

  • Turn off the Bluetooth connection.

This should allow another device to connect to your NIMA.


WHY AREN'T MY CONTROLS WORKING CORRECTLY WITH MY 3.5MM AUX CABLE?


The NIMA was designed to be used with a 3-pole (non-microphone or inline remote cable) auxiliary connector. You may experience unexpected behavior with controls if you use a 4-pole (with inline microphone and/or inline remote) auxiliary cable.

Only use a 3-pole cable with your NIMA.

WHY CAN'T I SELECT NIMA FROM THE IOS AIRPLAY NEMU?


If you have multiple NIMA speakers connected to one or more iOS devices, you might not be able to select which speaker to use with the iOS Airplay menu.

If you have two Bluetooth sources, try disconnecting the second source and use only one source.


CAN MY NIMA DOUBLE UP WITH A NIMA SMALL, MEDIUM OR LARGE?

 HOW TO CHECK YOUR BATTERY LIFE?


There are two ways to check your speaker’s current battery level.
