On the earphons, hold down the up and down volume at the same time for about 4 seconds until you hear 2 beeps, to reset them. Then turn your phone off and back on, you may have to turn your headphones off then back on too. Worked on my android, I got it from another post where someone gave the advice for an iphone. Yeah!

Oh my Gosh,Kristi!! Thank you so much. I couldnt get my Method Wireless Skullcandy to pair with my new iPhone X, but, it had been previously paired with the iPhone 6 Plus with no issues. I did what you suggested...and voila! Thanks a million!

Kristi's response from July 18th worked for me too. I was trying to pair Skullycandy Method wireless earphones with an iPhone 7+ running iOS 12 and her trick fixed it. Thank you, Kristi!!!!

So, after fighting with trying to connect these earbuds all morning, this is where I am:

1. At first, it did connect to my PC. However, the sound settings didn't recognize it and there was no audio.
2. I did all of the bluetooth driver updates, uninstalls, reinstalls, disables, reenables and everything. I checked to make sure that my PC was set to be discover-able. Still nothing.
3. I did the forgetting/reconnecting things related to the earbuds. Nothing. And now, they won't connect to the PC at all.
4. I noticed, at this point, that my earbuds were no longer audibly saying pairing. They just flashed red and blue. (This seems like an important issue)
5. After this, the headphones are seen by the PC but when I attempt to connect, it says, Couldn't connect. Try connecting again.
6. After several resets as suggested above, (and yes, I waited till I heard the two tones and restarted them after 3 minutes) I didn't see any change. I tried this while the headphones were on and when that didn't work, I tried the same thing while they were off. Nothing. I turn them on while holding the button pressed and it flashes red and blue but nothing works. After awhile, they just say, Powering off and they turn off.

I have googled EVERYWHERE and done every tip and suggestion that was offered and nothing is working. I've wasted too many hours googling and troubleshooting so I figured I'd ask here before I contact Skullcandy and have to do the mundane did you turn it off and on again routine. Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you Kristi!

Kristi, you're a lifesaver. Tried this truck after hours and hours of fretting. I had unpaired because I did a system update (OnePlus 5T) and next thing my FitBit won't sync. The Bluetooth went wild (only for my FitBit) so after days of fiddling with it, I found out I had to unpair my FitBit. But out of frustration I unpaired all devices... Including my earphones. Lol next thing my earphones refused to be paired back.

Tried your trick and it worked.

Wheew. Thanks

Thanks Kristi, this trick worked on my new iPhone.
After wasting almost 2 days I finally got to pair my Bluetooth with my phone.
I shifted from Android to iOS and tried to connect my Bluetooth, but it didn't connect to iPhone. Then I tried to connect it to my Android phone even that did not work, finally your trick worked for me.

I straight up used my warranty to get a new pixel 3xl because my Bluetooth wasn't working. Now because of this 30 second article, it works. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!! Handsfree is so important these days. Especially when there's no headphone jack. Thank you again!
