How do I reset and sync my wireless headphones?

This article is a detailed instruction in which I will show how to reset wireless headphones to factory settings and synchronize the earphone with each other. We are talking about wireless Bluetooth headphones of the TWS format (completely wireless headphones, when the right and left earphones are connected to each other via Bluetooth). In addition to the advantages that TWS headphones have (ease of use, compactness), they have one problem – headphone out of sync. Since the right and left earphones are connected to each other via Bluetooth, it is not uncommon for this connection to be lost for some reason and only one earpiece plays. For example, only the right one can play, and the left one stops working. Or vice versa, the right earpiece does not work and does not connect, but the left one works.

This problem affects almost all wireless TWS headphones. It’s just that on some models it appears more often, and on some less often. As a rule, it depends on the manufacturer, quality, price and use of the headphones. On the same AirPods, there is practically no such problem. And some cheap Chinese headphones have to be reset to factory settings and synchronized almost every day, since desynchronization occurs very often.

There are a lot of

Wireless TWS headphones on the market. Both popular models from trusted manufacturers, and Chinese headphones of dubious quality costing a few dollars. But the problem with out of sync (when one earbud stops playing) happens in both cases. I encountered this problem on different models. This instruction is suitable for all TWS headphones. Including for Xiaomi Redmi AirDots, Xiaomi Earbuds Basic, i30, i12, i11, i10, i9s, i7s, Motorola Verve Buds, Samsung Galaxy Buds, Huawei Freebuds, Defunc True Go, Nokia Power Earbuds, Pixus Drum, OPPO, Realme, Xiaomi QCY, Xiaomi Haylou, JBL and more.

Why is the headphone out of sync and why reset?

If you don’t need this information, you can jump straight to Solutions (below in this article).

Most TWS headphones work as follows: there is a main earpiece, master (depending on the model, it can be left or right) and there is a second earphone, slave. When we take the earbuds out of the case, the earbuds sync with each other via Bluetooth. The second earpiece (which is slave) is connected to the main (master). After that, we already connect the main earpiece to the phone, computer, etc. There are headphone models where both the right earpiece and the left one can act as the main earpiece.

Out-of-sync very often occurs when the headphones are connected incorrectly. When we connect to a phone or other device, not the main earpiece, but the slave one. For example, when we want to use only one earpiece. After that, the headphones cannot connect to each other and only one works. And on the device, two headphones can be displayed in the list of Bluetooth devices. Sometimes the name may contain a letter that indicates the right and left earpiece (for example, “name_R”, “name_L”). Screenshot for example (your situation may be different):

After that, you can connect one earphone, but not both together. More precisely, you can connect both, but only one will play. Which of course does not suit us.

It happens that the TWS earbuds are out of sync due to some kind of failure when we do not put the earbuds in the charging box after use, use one earbud, or after a complete discharge. The problem with out of sync, as a rule, has nothing to do with the device. Whether it’s a Windows PC, an Android phone, or an iPhone.

Resetting the TWS earbuds allows you to re-sync. We delete them on the devices to which we connected, reset the settings, turn them on, and the headphones are synchronized with each other and start working in pairs. This usually solves all synchronization and connection problems. Also, this method can be applied when the earpiece just fell off, the indicator does not light up and does not respond to pressing the button.

How to reset wireless TWS headphones?

This is done in two steps:

  1. You need to delete (forget) the headphones on the devices to which they were connected. This is a mandatory step regardless of the manufacturer and model of headphones.
  2. Make a reset with the button on the headphones or on the case. The button can be either mechanical or touch. Usually you need to hold down the button on the case or headphones (on the right and left at the same time) and hold it for 20-50 seconds. But depending on the model, the method may differ. Later in the article I will show in more detail several popular methods.

Step 1

Open the Bluetooth settings on your phone, tablet, laptop or other device and remove the headphones from the list of paired devices (forget this device). I show on the example of the iPhone. On Android devices, it looks about the same.

On computers, you can remove the headphones in the Bluetooth settings.

Delete the headphones on all devices that are nearby and have been connected to. If both headphones are displayed in the list (for example, with “_L” or “_R” in the name), then delete both.

Step 2

Reset settings with button.

If you have instructions specifically for your headphones, then the reset process is most likely described there. Even if the instruction is in the language of which you do not know, you can translate it using your phone (just point the camera, through the same translator from Google). You do not have to try different options and look for the right combinations.

Method 1: universal solution

This solution is suitable for most of these headphones. I show on the example of Xiaomi Redmi AirDots and Earbuds Basic.

  1. Charge your headphones.
  2. We take out both headphones from the case and take them in hand.
  3. We press the buttons (mechanical or touch, it depends on the model) for about 5 seconds. Usually the red indicator lights up and goes out. We release the buttons.
    We turned off the headphones. Sound signal “Power off”. On some models, this step can be skipped.
  4. Again simultaneously hold down the buttons on the headphones and hold them for about 20-50 seconds. The time after which the reset will occur and how the indicators will behave at this moment depends on the specific model. It’s not always the same. But as a rule, the white indicator flashes first, and then the blue / red (white / red) indicator alternately flashes several times.
    To be sure, keep the buttons pressed for about a minute.
  5. Put the headphones in the case for 10 seconds.
  6. We take out the headphones from the case and wait for them to synchronize with each other (as a rule, the indicator starts flashing (white, blue / red, blue – it depends on the specific model) on only one earphone, on the main one). This means that the headphones are ready to connect.
    If the indicators on the headphones do not flash, then hold the buttons for 5 seconds to turn them on.
  7. Reconnect the headphones to your phone or other device. Photo for example. You may have a different headphone name and a different phone number.
  8. If it doesn’t work the first time, be sure to try a few more times.

Method 2: do a reset by holding the buttons in the case

On the same Xiaomi Earbuds (on an updated or older version, I don’t know) that I have, the reset occurs only when we hold down the buttons on the headphones and at the same time they are in the case. Without removing the earbuds from the case! If the universal method did not work for you, and the design allows you to hold down the buttons when the right and left earphones are in the case, then try this method.

  1. Charge your headphones.
  2. Without removing the headphones from the case, hold down the buttons for about 30 seconds.
    Look at the indicators at this moment. On my Xiaomi Earbuds, for about 5 seconds, the indicators are red, then blink white several times, then actively blink white / red, turn red again, go out and turn red again. In time, it takes 15-20 seconds.
  3. Remove the headphones from the case and wait for the left and right headphones to sync with each other.
  4. Connect to the device via Bluetooth.

Method 3: button on case

On some TWS headphones, the reset must be done with the button on the case. On the same AirPods, or Xiaomi Mi AirDots Pro. I understand that this method is most often found on expensive models.

  1. Recharge your headphones by at least 10-20%.
  2. Place both earbuds in the case.
  3. Press the button on the case for 20-40 seconds.
    Pay attention to the indicator. On AirPods, for example, the reset occurs after the indicator blinks orange several times. But do not forget that on different headphones – in different ways.

Detailed instructions for AirPods: connect AirPods to iPhone: does not see, does not connect, one earpiece does not work.

Method 4: if the buttons are touch sensitive

If you have touch buttons on your headphones, then the reset is done in much the same way as in the case of regular buttons. For example, take Xiaomi QCY T3, Xiaomi Haylou GT1. The instruction is suitable for different headphones with touch buttons.

  1. Charging the headphones.
  2. We extract them from the case.
  3. We press the touch button on the headphones (sometimes you need to hold only one) for 5 seconds to turn them off. They usually turn red and go out.
  4. Press and hold the touch buttons for 20-40 seconds. Normally flashing red/white light, but not on all models.
    Or like this (on the example of a good copy of AirPods):
  5. Put the headphones in the case and close it. We take out the headphones and wait 5 seconds until they are synchronized. If they do not turn on automatically, then hold the sensors for 5 seconds.
  6. Everything is ready, you can connect!

Sometimes on headphones with touch buttons, you need to press the touch button several times to reset the parameters. For example, make 4 clicks on the touchpad. On Motorola Vervebuds 100, for example, you need to touch the touchpad once, then hold it down and hold it for 5 seconds.

Method 4: using TWS I7s as an example

I have very cheap Chinese I7s headphones lying around. Decided to show more on their example. If I understand correctly, then they do not need to be reset at all. Just turn on the headphones by holding the buttons for 5 seconds and they automatically connect to each other. After that, on one earpiece, the indicator actively flashes red / blue. This means that they can be connected. I found information that the main earpiece is assigned by double pressing the button. But maybe on older or newer models, or i9s, i10, i11, i12, i30 all work differently.

  1. We take out our I7s or a similar model from the case.
  2. We turn them off by holding the buttons pressed for 3-5 seconds (the red indicator lights up and goes out).
  3. Press the buttons at the same time and hold them for 30 seconds.
  4. Turn on the headphones by holding the buttons for a few seconds.
  5. After synchronization, we connect them to the phone.

An important point: does not always work the first time. Be sure to try again a few times. If the methods described above do not work, your headphones behave differently, then describe in the comments the problem why the reset does not work and indicate the model of the headphones. I’ll try to suggest a solution.

Wireless headphone sync

TWS earbuds sync automatically as soon as you take them out of the case or turn them on using the buttons. This is provided that you have solved the problem of desynchronization by resetting the settings.

If you took the earphones out of the case and the indicator on one or both earphones does not light up and does not blink, then hold the button for 5 seconds to turn it on. Or put the earbuds in the case and take them out again.

Most often it works like this:

  1. Remove both earbuds from the charging case and/or turn on the earbuds using the buttons (usually 2-5 seconds).
  2. The indicators immediately flash actively on both headphones.
    At this moment, the headphones are being synchronized with each other.
  3. If they have been synced, the indicator continues to flash on only one earphone.
    In some cases, the indicator on the second earpiece may flash once every few seconds. This indicates that the headphones are ready to be connected to phones, computers, etc.
  4. We connect TWS headphones via Bluetooth to our device.
  5. Both headphones should work after pairing.

Terminals

Loss of connection between the headphones when only one ear is working in most cases is successfully solved by resetting the settings and re-syncing. The factory reset and re-sync process may vary slightly depending on the manufacturer and model of the wireless separate headphones.

If you carefully looked at this article, applied all the instructions, and you were unable to restore the headphones, then write about your problem in the comments . Be sure to indicate the model of the headphones, tell us what is wrong with them, why it was not possible to fix them according to the instructions, and if necessary, attach a photo. I will definitely answer and try to help you!

Don’t forget to share your experience and useful tips! Best wishes!
