Why Are My Skullcandy Earbuds Not Pairing?

Typically Skullcandy Earbuds have the same button for entering pairing mode. You’ll need to ensure this is enabled when trying to connect to a device. This will usually be the power on/off button.

Hold down the pairing button for 4-5 seconds, and you’ll notice a flashing light to confirm the earbuds are in pairing mode. Follow the usual steps on your device to ‘add Bluetooth device’.

Check You Are Close Enough To Your Device

If your earbuds are not showing up, check that you are in a suitable range from your device, as being too far away could affect your earbuds.

Check The Power Of Your Device

Ensure that your phone or laptop has adequate charge (some units may switch off Bluetooth to conserve battery power).

Reset Your Device

If your Skullcandy earbuds have been reset, but you still have connection issues, try resetting your phone, computer, or laptop.
