How to Pair Skullcandy Sesh:
The Skullcandy Sesh Evo earbuds are designed with an automatic pairing feature, ensuring hassle-free connectivity right out of the box.
But if you’re aiming to connect them to a different device or if they don’t initiate pairing automatically, you can always switch to the manual pairing option. In the following sections, we’ll guide you through both these methods to guarantee a smooth connection experience.
Automatic Pairing (For First Time Pairing)

- Enable Bluetooth on Your Device: On your phone, tablet, or other devices, go to the Bluetooth settings and make sure it’s turned on.
- Find the Earbuds in the Bluetooth Menu: Look for “Skullcandy Sesh” in the list of available devices and tap on it to connect.
- Confirm Pairing: Your device may prompt you to confirm the pairing. Accept it, and your earbuds should now be paired with your device.
Manual Pairing (If You’ve Paired Before)
If you’ve paired your Skullcandy Sesh with a device before and want to pair with a new device, or if the automatic pairing isn’t working, you may need to manually put the earbuds into pairing mode:
- Remove Earbuds from the Case: This should turn them on.
- Put Earbuds into Pairing Mode: Press and hold the button on either bud for 4 seconds. The LED will flash red and blue, indicating pairing mode.
