Skullcandy Wireless Headphones Troubleshooting

Try the following troubleshooting tips if you’re still experiencing issues pairing your Skullcandy wireless headphones or earbuds to your device.

  1. Ensure Bluetooth is turned on. You should notice a small Bluetooth symbol at the top of your device’s screen. If you don’t see it, go into the settings and turn it on.
  2. Place the two devices are close to one another. It’s probably worth mentioning that any devices you’re trying to link should be within five feet of each other.
  3. Turn the devices off and on again. A soft reset can occasionally fix a problem. Turning on and off your device’s airplane mode is an easy way to do this.
  4. Turn off all potential interfering devices. Another device may be attempting to auto-connect to your headphones or earbuds. Turn off any Bluetooth devices that you have previously paired with your device.
  5. Charge both of the devices you’re attempting to connect. If the battery level is too low, some devices’ smart power management may switch off Bluetooth. If your mobile device will not pair, make sure the device you’re trying to link with has enough battery life.
  6. Delete and re-discover a device on the mobile device. If your phone or tablet detects a device but cannot receive data from it, it may be necessary to restart the process.
  7. Move away from other devices. Interference from other devices is another potential stumbling block to successful pairing.
  8. Keep some distance from a USB port. USB interference is also a possibility. If the connection isn’t working, try pairing your Bluetooth devices away from the computer.
