How To Solve Beats Studio Buds Not Charging Issue?

If your Beats wireless earbuds or charging case are not charging, try these solutions to fix the issue:

1. Place Your Earbuds Properly

All true wireless buds have a connector pin that makes contact with the charging case connector.

Whenever we place our earbuds in the charging case, the magnet inside the buds aligns it and ensures that the charging pin on both buds makes contact.

Sometimes, when we don’t pace our buds carefully, charging pins won’t make contact, and earbuds won’t charge.

If your Beats Studio Buds are not charging in the case, ensure that you place both buds carefully.

2. Clean the Charging Pin

True wireless earbuds charge at very low DC power. Whenever we insert our buds into our ears, they get sweaty, and it attracts dust from the environment. Hence, a layer of dust is formed around the charging pins.

This layer of dust and oily sweat prevents the electricity flow, and due to very less voltage across the buds and case, it won’t pass power to the earbuds.

You should regularly clean your earbuds and charging case with isopropyl alcohol and microfibre clothes. You can also use ear cleaning buds to clean the charging case pin.

3. Fully Charge Your Case

If your Beats Studio Buds not charging in the case, then it’s also possible that the charging case itself is not charged.

Plug Beats Studio Buds charging case with a 20-watt power adapter and leave it for approx 2 hours. The LED on the Beats Studio Buds case turned OFF, it means the case is fully charged.

Once the case is fully charged, place your earbuds properly and leave them for 30 minutes.

4. Inspect Charging Cable

It’s always recommended to use a specified cable to charge your Beats Studio Earbuds. If you’re using a different cable, then inspect if the cable is not damaged.

You can plug in a different device to ensure that the charging cable is working properly. Replace the USB-C cable if it’s not working or you found any damage visually.

5. Update Firmware

Buggy firmware can also affect your charging speed and functionality. If you haven’t updated your Beats earbuds firmware for a long, then update it today.

You can download Beats App on your Android phone to update the latest firmware.

6. Reset Your Beats Studio Buds

If your Beats Studio Buds charging issue is not fixed yet, perform a factory reset. Resetting can fix the charging issue and connectivity issue of any earbuds.

If you don’t know how to reset beats studio buds, then follow these steps:

  1. Insert both earbuds into the charging case.
  2. Open the lid and keep it in an open position.
  3. Press and hold the system button on the case for 15 seconds.
