My crushers have recently started buzzing and making a high pitch noise instead of playing music. They connect to my phone, and the volume works still but no sound comes out. I have full battery, and the lights were flashing blue and red before but that's stopped. They still work through the aux however, and the microphone still works fine.

Pairing all over again isn't possible ?

Mine just started buzzing instead of functioning via bluetooth. Trying to find a solution. We had a lil heatwave, 29 degrees, but it's always hot for my skullcandies when I walk in the heat for a long time and sweat a lot, so I don't think it's this particular 'burst' of temperature. Aux cable to PC still works like it should, but this is worrying. I had bugs with it going into Lock mode before, but this is different of course.

Hi did you get a fix for this? We have the same problem.
Many thanks!

Yeah mine made the same problem I just hanged the side abit and they started working again I know it sounds stupid especially for the price but worth a try think the problem was that if they disconnected becasuse you plugged the aux cord in it can mess it up

Hi yes! Charging all weekend fixed the problem. Good luck

Had the problem and searched for a solution. While reading I litterally knocked it 3 times on each side and it went back to normal. Weird I know. But it may be worth a shot.

Celixon oh my god it does work. I literally tapped my headphones thrice and now they work just fine.

Had the same problem. Just smacked the right ear-cup and it fixed it. Very strange.

I had this problem ever since I unplugged the aux. Then I found this page and smacking the headphone actually works kind of weird. You have to smack it kinda hard though.

Hi I am still having the problem not sure how hard should i smack, scared of smacking too hard. The customer care just doesn't pick up the phone. Can someone help me here?

@Shivek Sacklecha

You won't hurt them, just smack them pretty hard on the right ear cup with them folded up. I hit they with a considerable amount of force. As long as you use the palm of your hand while holding them AND having them folded up, it would be almost impossible to break them.

Go on, give them a good smack. I had mine on playing music while I did it, so I smacked them progressively harder until it starts playing.

If it isn't working, try plugging and unplugging the aux and charging them for a while.

Hi @Matt, thank you for a prompt response. Just wanted to clarify that the issue i am facing is that I hear a high frequency hissing sound on the left ear cup only when i attend calls via any device, be it a laptop/mobile in Bluetooth mode.

This is not happening when i hear music, watch movies, only happens in phone -calls/video calls/whatsapp calls/hangouts etc.

Tried repairing, different handsets, laptop, nothing seemed to work. It kept making a hissing sound periodically in every 3-5 seconds on the left ear. This doesn't happen when connected via the aux cable provided.

The solution you are telling would that help here?

@Shivek Sacklecha

The issue I had was a high pitched buzzing whenever any sound tried to come out the headphones.

It sounds like a different issue. Does the sound still work when it is hissing?

I can't really help since I have no experience with that issue, and if you have tried on different devices I would put it down to the amplifier in the headphones producing it when it call mode. Since it has to change the audio to a lower quality to conserve bandwidth when using the mic, it could produce the sound. Whenever the mic is in use, this will occur and I would put it down to that. When you connect the aux, the microphone on the aux cable is used and it does not have to cut the quality to conserve bandwidth since it's raw cable.

I would believe it's just the limitation of the Bluetooth, since it uses as older version, probably 4.0 which has to do this.

This happens when I try to use the mic on a computer, since it has 2 different modes, one high quality and no mic, the other low quality with mic. It will automatically switch on a computer.

The reason it probably doesn't do it on WhatsApp or hangouts etc it that it may continue to use the phones microphone since it doesn't tell the headphones to switch.

It all could be down to the limitations of cellular networks. They compress the audio heavily and you may just hear this.

I know it's only in one ear, but some quirky things happen with Bluetooth audio. I don't believe this is an issue with the headphones, just a limitation or gimmick.

Very strange. Hope this was to a degree some help!

Bru I've been here for like an hour trying to find a solution and smacingt actually worked I'm pissed and kinda happy at the same time smh.

Kasir702 responded : 10:02pm, 6th September 2020 (3 months ago)
So I have been trying all of the solutions I can find but the slapping one seems to be the only one that's somewhat working, especially since they won't even turn on. But how many times will I have to hit it? I've already hit it about 8 times, and the buzzing is slowly getting quieter but it still isn't going away completely.

Should I just leave them on the charger for a day or so and see what happens, or do I keep going with the slapping method?

I had this problem today, did a little google search and i found out if you POWER DOWN your headphones and then HOLD the VOLUME DOWN AND VOLUME UP BUTTONS until you HEAR 2 BEEPS should RESET the headphones and SOLVE your problem. Solved the problem for me, you should try this if you face the same problem.
