How do I reset my HEOS by Denon speaker?

You want to set up your HEOS by Denon speaker again. That's why you reset it to factory settings, so that you clear all current settings. I'll show you in the following steps how to reset your HEOS by Denon speaker. These steps are suitable for HEOS 1, 3, 5, 7, and all HEOS subwoofers and soundbars.

Step 1: determine which speaker you have

Determine which speaker you have

There are 2 versions of the HEOS by Denon speakers: the HS1 (also called 'first generation') and the HS2 (also called 'second generation'). In addition, there is also the HEOS BAR. You reset each speaker in a different way. That's why you first need to check which speaker you have. To check this on the speakers, check the rear of the speaker. On the HS1 speakers, there's a reset button next to the adapter connection. With the HS2 you'll find the Bluetooth button here, which you recognize by the Bluetooth logo.

Step 2: reset your speaker

Use a paper clip or toothpick to press the reset button. Hold down the reset button until the light on the speaker starts flashing orange and then release it. After 30 seconds the light will flash blue and the speaker will be ready for use again.

Reset an HS2 speaker

Press and hold the connect and Bluetooth buttons simultaneously until the speaker light starts flashing orange. You can find the connect button on the back of the speaker, just like the Bluetooth button. Release both buttons.
