You know, there are certain things in life that just get into your nerves and that you can stand per se, like someone chewing behind you, or the sound of the sink leaking slowly, you find yourself pissed off by these things and you can’t actually explain it.

By my estimation, one of those things is also the headphones disconnecting out of nowhere. Can you just imagine, you are watching a movie, fully concentrated, and all of a sudden your headphones disconnect from your PC or phone, isn’t that nerve-racking? According to me, it is, and I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t be able to control my nerves at that moment, and that is why sometimes I really despite technology, cause if you are using wired headphones, that would never happen.

And to prevent that from happening, we tend to go out there and pay a huge amount of money for really well-known brands of headphones that promise ultimate quality and we think that by purchasing their headphones, we have solved our problem.

And then, it comes a moment when we realize that, just because an item is expensive, doesn’t mean that it will satisfy all of our needs.

Beats is one of those brands. I’m not questioning their quality, I’m just saying that I’ve heard many people complaining that their Beats headphones keep disconnecting often and that can get quite annoying after several times.

That is why I decided to write this article, where I’ll include reasons why that might happen, and after, as always, I’ll make sure to write down a few solutions for you. I never write about a problem, without having the solution up my sleeve, do I? So, without no further ado, let’s get started!

Beats Keep Disconnecting – Why That Might Happen?

Insufficient Battery

Batteries are used to power Beats Bluetooth headphones. Batteries eventually run out of power entirely as they lose their ability to hold a charge over time. Your speech might stutter, Bluetooth signal disconnects, and other issues could happen during this time.

Not all Bluetooth headphone batteries can be changed, and even if they can, you shouldn’t attempt it yourself. Numerous tools will be required, but knowledge of electrical machinery is most important. The technique is also ineffective for Bluetooth earbuds, which have incredibly tiny batteries that even specialists have trouble changing.


The interference from another device could be a possibility. Instances of Bluetooth devices that can connect to multiple devices include various headphones. The Bluetooth connection will first interact with the primary connection if two people are attempting to utilize the same device.

Indicators for the paired connection will be present on higher-quality devices. Certain headsets will automatically try to pair with any nearby phones. This kind of interference is avoided by studying and using the pairing techniques provided by the manufacturer.

It’s possible that other mobile devices on the road will cause interference if your Bluetooth headset disconnects while you’re driving. Multiple devices sharing the same spectrum can break connections since wireless devices/wireless headphones in this case, require a certain band to operate. High-end Bluetooth headphones are less prone to experience this problem.


The Bluetooth headset/wireless headphones will malfunction while in use if the device it’s attempting to connect to, such as a mobile phone, smartphone, or PC, is incompatible. Before buying, check the headset’s specifications. additionally, ask the salesperson for help. This will make it more likely that the Bluetooth headset will work as intended.

Too Many Apps

The device the Bluetooth is attempting to pair with can have too many apps open in the background. Some devices have restrictions on the number of continuously running programs, and some applications can interfere with the connection.


Dropped connections can occur when there is too much space between the connected device and the Bluetooth headset. The majority of headsets have a maximum range of 32 feet/10 meters. Try getting closer to the device to which you are connected. Additionally, check the requirements on your headset to determine how close you must be for the best connectivity.

Beats Keep Disconnecting – How to Fix It?

Unpair From Other Devices

Unpair your Beats from any devices that you aren’t using if you have them paired to numerous devices. Before you pair them with your selected listening device, you should try to reset them.

Check For Interferences

What sort of environmental factors might be producing interferences? By interfering with Bluetooth connection, identical-wavelength functioning devices can break them.

Before you try connecting your Beats Flex to your listening device once more, make sure all other gadgets in your local area are unplugged and off.

Reset Your Beats Headphones

Hold down on both the power button and the volume down button for 15 seconds. When the LED indicator light starts to flash, you can go ahead and release the buttons. This indicates that your Beats are reset and ready to be paired with your iPhone, iPad, or other listening devices.

Check For Broken Wires

This seems like plain sense, but many of us, including myself, are guilty of neglecting it. Anything with cables may eventually break. Your earphones might not be able to connect or even turn on when that occurs. Make sure to inspect all of the electrical parts for any possible damage.

Check For Updates

Download and install the Beats Updater app if you haven’t already. This practical program is very necessary for updating your firmware.

To use it, you must be on the most recent version of iOS or iPadOS, although you can check for updates by opening this beats app. A necessary update may occasionally prevent Bluetooth connection devices from successfully connecting.

Clean Your Beats Headphones 

You should never underestimate the value of cleaning your headphones or earbuds. Seriously.

Even though you might not be aware of it, earwax can spill out of your ears and get lodged in your earbuds, which can lead to a variety of issues, such as reduced sound quality and connection issues.

Final Words

There you have the WHY and the HOW, of the problem of Beats keep disconnecting. I know I’m a lifesaver, you don’t have to say it!
