One earbud won't connect or power on

If one earbud is not connecting to a Bluetooth device or powering on, try the following:

If only using one earbud, make sure to use the right earbud,

  • The right earbud is the "primary" or main earbud; it controls the left earbud by relaying audio from the source device.  If you place the right earbud in the case by itself with audio streaming and close the case, audio will stop, and the earbuds will turn off
  • The right earbud also has the microphone for phone calls. Make sure you use the right earbud for phone calls 

Try resyncing the earbuds and charging case.

  1. Turn off Bluetooth on all devices within 30 ft of the earbuds.
  2. Place earbuds in the charging case for 5 seconds.
  3. Remove earbuds from the case. The earbuds and charging case should now communicate as normal.

Make sure the earbuds are firmly seated on the charging pins when charging

  • If you place both earbuds in the case and they are not seated on the charging pins, the earbuds will remain on and drain the battery
  • The charging pins could also be stuck in a down position. You can push on the charging pin(s) to confirm they are moving up and down and not stuck in the down position
  • When placing the earbuds in the charging case, the LEDs on the earbuds should flash or light up. This will confirm the earbuds are connecting with the charging pins

Check if the battery is charged.

Be sure the battery is not depleted. For more info see, Checking the remaining battery charge and Charging your headphones.

Reboot the Bluetooth® device.

Electronics, such as cell phones, tablets or computers, might need to be reset on occasion to correct minor issues. This is typically done by shutting down the device, then powering it on again.

Clear your Bose product memory of previously-connected Bluetooth® devices.

Your Bose product remembers the last several devices it connected to so it can quickly reconnect to them. In case there is an issue with the device memory, clear it and then try to reconnect the device. For more information, see Clearing the product memory of paired Bluetooth devices and Connecting a Bluetooth device.

On the Bluetooth® device, remove all entries of your Bose product from the Bluetooth menu. Then, try connecting again.

In the Bluetooth menu of the Bluetooth device, you'll find a list of Bluetooth products that have been previously connected. Your Bose product might show up one or more times in the list (i.e. it might be listed a second time with "LE-" in the name). Select each entry for your product and remove it by selecting Forget, Unpair, Delete or something similar. After, try connecting again. For more information, see Connecting a Bluetooth device.
