Troubleshooting Connection

If you followed the steps above and are yet not able to pair your headphones / ear buds to your device try below steps :

  1. Make sure that the device is not too far away from the Skullcandy headset. Both the headset and your device has to be within the range of approx. 40ft – 50ft in order to be paired successfully.
  2. Make sure that the LED light on your headset is still blinking, if not then repeat Step 1 again to turn on pairing mode for your headset.
  3. Double-check that you have connected the right headset on your device. Go to the Bluetooth option on your phone or system and recheck the name of the device that you have connected. There is a chance that you may have paired with the wrong device.
