Features Of Connect To Skullcandy Earbuds

  • In most cases, connecting your earbuds to your device is straightforward. The steps vary slightly depending on the device type, but a few troubleshooting tips can help resolve issues that might arise during pairing.
  • The first step in preparing to pair your earbuds is to ensure that they’re charged and seated properly in their charging case. It’s also a good idea to have the headphones’ user manual handy, as it offers specific instructions for your particular model.
  • To pair your earbuds to an iPhone, launch the Settings app and select Bluetooth. Turn the switch to on and wait for your headphones to appear in the list of devices with which you can connect. Select your earbuds from the list and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the connection process.
  • Once paired, you can access your headphones’ EQ settings by touching either the left or right earbud twice and holding for 2 seconds. The EQ settings include Music Mode, Podcast Mode, and Movie Mode. Each mode optimizes the earbuds for different media types, providing you with a personalized listening experience.
  • To keep your earbuds up to date with new features, ensure that the Skullcandy app is updated and that the firmware is current. You’ll receive notifications through the app when an update is available, and updates are a great way to enhance the performance and functionality of your earbuds.

1. Turn On:

The first thing to do is make sure that your earbuds are in pairing mode. Depending on your model, this may be as simple as opening the case or pressing a button. Once the LEDs on your earbuds flash BLUE, they’re ready to connect.

Once your earbuds are in pairing mode, you can pair them with any compatible device. On Android, this is as easy as opening the Bluetooth settings and selecting your earbuds from the list. Once paired, you’ll see a confirmation message (either a tone or voice) and the Headphones will show as “connected” in your device’s app.

On Mac, you’ll need to open the Apple menu and select System Preferences. Select Bluetooth & Other Devices and look for your Skullcandy earbuds in the visible list. Select them and follow any on-screen instructions to complete the connection. If the earbuds don’t appear in the list, try restarting your phone or computer and trying again. Alternatively, you can also contact Skullcandy’s customer support for assistance. They’ll be able to walk you through additional troubleshooting steps or provide further troubleshooting tips.

2. Press & Hold the Power Button for a Few Seconds:

A good pair of headphones can make a world of difference in the music-listening experience. However, it’s important to understand the pairing process. Whether you’re using an Android phone, iPhone, Windows PC, or Mac computer, the basic steps are similar. Start by opening your device’s Bluetooth settings. Then, select your Skullcandy headphones from the list of available devices (these typically display in a blue color). If you hear a tone through the headset or see a notification on your device’s screen, your Skullcandy earbuds are successfully connected.

If you’re unable to connect your earbuds, try restarting the pairing process by removing them from their charge case and pressing and holding the power button. After a few seconds, the LED lights on both earbuds will flash red and blue. This indicates that they are in pairing mode. Next, open your device’s Bluetooth settings and select your earbuds from the list of available devices. Once your earbuds are paired, they can be used with any device connected to the same Bluetooth network.

3. Open the App:

Your device will need to be powered on and connected to Bluetooth for you to connect your earbuds. Make sure your earbuds have sufficient battery charge and are within Bluetooth range of your device (typically about 30 feet). You also need to have the latest version of the Skullcandy App downloaded and linked with your product through app prompts to unlock all in-app features.


Open your mobile device’s Bluetooth settings (Android: swipe down from the top of your screen; iPhone: tap on the Bluetooth icon, then Settings; Windows 10 and 11: click on the Start button and select Devices). Look for your Earbuds in the list of available devices. They should have a blue or blue/red indicator light that flashes, depending on the model.

Some models support Multipoint, which allows you to pair your earbuds with two different devices simultaneously. You can toggle between the two connections by pressing either earbud once. This will reset the earbuds into pairing mode so they can be repaired to a new device. Once the earbuds are re-paired to a second device, the connection between the devices will be managed automatically.

4. Wait for a Few Seconds:

A few seconds is all it takes for the headphones to connect to your device. You’ll hear a voice prompt stating “Battery Status: %”. Both LED lights will begin flashing red and blue, indicating that the earbuds have entered pairing mode.

Make sure your earbuds are fully charged. Low battery levels can interfere with the Bluetooth pairing process. If your earbuds fail to pair after following these steps, try resetting them. Refer to the user manual or Skullcandy’s website for instructions on how to reset your specific earbud model.

Some Skullcandy Earbuds and headphones feature multipoint pairing (Riff Wireless 2, Mod, Rail ANC). This allows you to pair them with a second device while maintaining connections with the first one.

Mod’s Activate Assistant button is a convenient way to engage your device’s native voice assistant. You can personalize this button action through the APP or as part of your custom Bluetooth remote settings.

5. Open the App again:

If the earbuds don’t connect automatically after a few seconds, you can open the app again to manually link them. It’s important to keep the app active so that it can detect your earbuds and other connected devices. The more you use the app, the better your experience will be. The app can help you enable hands-free voice control, customize settings, access user guides, and receive updates to new features as they become available.

Some models of Skullcandy earbuds support Multipoint Pairing, which allows them to be connected to two different devices at once. This can be handy if you want to switch between listening to music on your laptop and taking calls on your phone.

To use Multipoint Pairing, press and hold the power button on the earbuds to initiate pairing mode. Then, select the earbuds when they appear in your list of Bluetooth devices on your computer or phone. Make sure that your device has Bluetooth enabled and is within range of the headphones. Some earbuds have an indicator light that flashes blue or blue/red to indicate pairing mode. If yours doesn’t, consult your product manual or the Skullcandy website for specific instructions.
