How to Pair Skullcandy Wireless Earbuds

When you take your Skullcandy earbuds out of their case, they will turn on by themselves. When you put them back in the case, they will turn off on their own. To connect Skullcandy wireless earbuds together:

  • To connect your earbuds to a device for the first time, put them in the case.
  • Then take them away.
  • Your buds will turn on and go into pairing mode on their own.
  • Then, choose your headphones from the list of Bluetooth devices and pair.
  • Turn off your earbuds to pair them with a new device.
  • Hold the right earbud for 4 seconds to turn it on and start the pairing process.

How to Fix Skullcandy Wireless Headphones

If you still can’t connect your Skullcandy wireless headphones or earbuds to your device, try the following troubleshooting steps.

  1. Make sure that Bluetooth is on. You should see a small Bluetooth icon at the top of the screen of your device. If you don’t see it, you can turn it on in the settings.
  2. Put the two things close to each other. Any devices you want to connect should be within five feet of each other.
  3. Turn off and then back on the devices. Sometimes a problem can be fixed with a soft reset. One easy way to do this is to turn on and off the “airplane mode” on your device.
  4. Turn off anything that could interfere. It’s possible that another device is trying to automatically connect to your headphones or earbuds. Turn off any Bluetooth devices you have paired with your device in the past.
  5. Charge up both of the things you want to connect. Some devices’ smart power management may turn off Bluetooth if the battery level is too low. If your mobile device won’t connect, make sure the other device has enough battery life.
  6. Delete a device and find it again on a mobile device. If your phone or tablet can see a device but can’t get data from it, you might need to start the process over.
  7. Put down your other things. Another thing that could make it hard to pair is interference from other devices.
  8. Don’t get too close to a USB port. USB could also cause interference. If the connection doesn’t work, try pairing your Bluetooth devices away from the computer.
