Yes, the cost-effective headphones with the stylish skull logo design.

If you’ve recently purchased a pair of Skullcandy wireless headphones and aren’t sure how to pair them properly or are having issues, you’ve come to the right place.

In today’s article, I’ll show you how to pair Skullcandy wireless headphones in every possible way.

Struggling with pairing your Skullcandy headphones?

If you find yourself struggling with pairing your headphones, below I will list a few things that may interfere with your pairing process, so make sure you read through them.

Once I am done with this part, I will show you how to pair both your headphones and earbuds.

Bluetooth Connection: First thing first, ensure that Bluetooth functionality is turned on. Check your Bluetooth device for a small Bluetooth icon; if it’s your phone, it should be visible on the top of the screen. On Windows, it should be near the clock on the taskbar.

Close Proximity: The next thing to remember is to keep both of your devices close together. Simply put, get your headphones/earbuds close to the device you’re trying to connect them to, whether it’s your phone or a pc.

On and Off: Another thing you might try would be turning off the device, waiting a few seconds, and turning it back on. A soft reset may also be the solution for your headphones.
(Have you tried turning it on and off, might be a meme but it sure works)

Fully Charged: You want to make sure that both of your bluetooth devices are fully charged, some modern devices will turn the Bluetooth off, if their battery life runs low. Bluetooth is known as a battery-consuming feature.

Forget The Device: Even if you have no issues with pairing, you may still have trouble streaming music for unknown reasons. In this instance, the best approach is to disconnect and reconnect the device. You can delete a device from iOS settings by touching on its name and selecting Forget this Device. Pretty much the same goes for Android device users too, find the device on the pairing list and unpair it.

Wi-Fi Router: Some people might take this one lightly, but it has proven that Wi-Fi signals tend to get in “conflict” with Bluetooth signals, so make sure you try to do perform the pairing away from your router.

Compatibility: Lastly, ensure sure the Bluetooth devices you’re trying to pair are designed to connect. Every device has a unique profile, and some devices aren’t designed to be connected with one another, just like people.
