How to Reset Skullcandy Headphones & Earbuds


Skullcandy headphones and earphones are great budget buys because they are affordable yet offer decent sound quality. Even though most Skullcandy products work exactly as they should, you may be having difficulty with yours and need to reset them.

Although resetting Skullcandy headphones and earphones varies from product to product, you should disconnect the product from your phone’s Bluetooth list, manually turn off the headphones and earphones, reset them by holding down on the power buttons, and allow them to reset on their own.

In this article, we are going to walk you through how to reset both Skullcandy headphones and earphones in more detail. Read on to learn more.

How to Reset Skullcandy Headphones

Resetting Skullcandy headphones is relatively easy. The hardest part is knowing what buttons to push, but even that shouldn’t be too difficult.

Most Skullcandy headphones follow the same pattern for reset. Begin by removing the device from your phone’s Bluetooth paired list. Then, press and hold the appropriate buttons for up to 10 seconds. The length of time will differ from product to product as well. From there, the headphones should reset on their own, and you will need to pair them again.

  1. Disconnect headphones from your phone.
  2. Hold appropriate buttons for up to 10 seconds.
  3. Reset headphones.

The most popular Skullcandy headphones are the Crusher EVOs. You will only need to hold the top and bottom buttons down for two seconds if you have this product.

How to Reset Skullcandy Earbuds

Skullcandy earphones are a bit more difficult to reset than the headphones, but they’re still easy, nonetheless. Like the headphones, the exact reset method will differ from product to product.

It’s much harder to give a general overview about resetting all Skullcandy earphones. Instead, let’s look at the reset steps for the most popular Skullcandy earphone products.

IndyTM

  1. Turn off earphones.
  2. Touch and hold for 10 seconds.

The Skullcandy Indy earphones are the easiest to reset. Simply make sure both of the buds are turned off. Then, touch them to one another and hold them there for 10 seconds. This will automatically power the buds on and off again.

Shesh EVO

  1. Remove earphones from the device’s Bluetooth list.
  2. Remove earphones from the case.
  3. Hold for 6 seconds to manually turn off.
  4. Hold for 10 seconds to reset AFTER the earphones have been turned off.
  5. Put earphones back in the case until the LED light turns red.
  6. Remove earphones from the case.
  7. Allow earphones to sync.

The Shesh earphones require a couple more steps than the Indy earphones, but the steps are still relatively easy. First, make sure that your earphones are forgotten on your Bluetooth device. Although you can simply unpair them, many people prefer forgetting them to ensure the process goes smoothly.

Remove each earbud from the case and hold them in your hand. Touch and hold the earbuds for six seconds at the same time. This will turn the earbuds off. After the earbuds are off, touch and hold them again for 10 seconds for reset.

Once the earbuds have reset and gone through the power cycle, put each bud back into the case. Leave them there until the LED light comes up red. Remove the earbuds again. While in your hands, the earbuds will automatically turn on and the lights should start flashing blue during the syncing process.

After the earbuds have synced, you should hear a tone that indicates a successful syncing process. Likewise, the left earbud should flash red and blue, but the right earbud should not flash at all.

Push Ultra

  1. Remove earphones from the device’s Bluetooth list.
  2. Remove earphones from the charging case.
  3. Hold power and MFB buttons for 6 seconds to manually turn off.
  4. Hold power and MFB buttons for 10 seconds to reset AFTER the earphones have been turned off.
  5. Put earphones back in the case until the LED light turns red.
  6. Remove earphones from the case.
  7. Allow earphones to sync.

The last earbud we’re going to look at is the Push Ultra. Like the Shesh, these earbuds require a couple more steps to successfully reset them.

Begin by forgetting your headphones in your device’s Bluetooth list. Then, turn off the earbuds by removing them from the charging case while holding the power button on both of the earbuds for six seconds. To complete the reset, hold each bud’s power/MFB button for a total of 10 seconds.

Follow the same steps as listed above in the Shesh Evo instructions to sync the buds again.
