My wireless rosebuds were working fine before now the next I wake , I try connecting them to my phone because they automatically connect once they are on but that didn't happen. When I search for it. It doesn't even pick it up or appear on the screen, actually it won't appear on any screen. The earbuds still cut on and off and make the sound but it is like the Bluetooth just stopped working for some reason and I don't know why.

Hi Davon To clarify if you search for the headphones again are you sure you are correctly initiating the headphones to pair again? Do make sure battery levels are high in the headphones as well as that can cause Bluetooth to fail in some device. If this doesn't work try them with another phone of friends or family.

I have the same issue and I don't know why my SB2 doesn't show up on my Bluetooth options

forget the device and then reconnect the device by holding the power button until it alternates red and blue led and it should pair with your phone again.

EarbudGuy responded : 9:05am, 18th May 2016 (3 years ago)
For those of you having issues connecting
step 1. Make sure your SB2's are TURNed OFF.
Step 2. Make sure you are actually in PAIRING MODE Do this by holding the skull button on the left earbud til the indicator light on the back of the headset TURNS RED and IMMEDIATELY let go of the button
Step 3. On your device press the scan button and they should show up as SB2
Step 4. if they still will not connect plug in both your headset and phone and attempt to pair again this has fixed the issue for all of my friends that use these earbuds, including myself... j/k mine paired fine but this should work for you guys

I've tried everything. Nothing worked. But finally..

I put my earphones to charge on my laptop, and the light on the left ear-piece went RED charging.
I then held down the middle button power on/off until the light went blue and I immediately let go.
It turned up on my phone. Woot!

Tessa responded : 6:52pm, 21st June 2016 (3 years ago)
I've had similar issues with my headphones. The first pair I got wouldn't turn on/off when I wanted to, but it would randomly turn on when I wasn't holding the button. Then IF I could even get it to pair, it would turn off once I started playing my music. I sent them back and got a replacement pair which worked at first and now they are starting to do the same thing. They will only turn on if they are on the charger. I charge them ALL day and once I take them off, they won't turn on. IF they turn on, I can't turn them off again. These headphones are a PIECE OF SHIT. I DO NOT recommend buying them. Unless I'm an idiot and don't know how to work them. Any suggestions?

If you wanna connect the Smokin Bud 2 and if you have an iPhone or maybe any phone try this out. It might be worth noting I did this on an iPhone 6s.

1. Make sure that the headset is turned off. No flashing lights, nothing.
2. Press and hold the middle skull button on the left earpod until the light on the back flashes red and blue. DO NOT let go if you see blue only, the blue only lights just means the headset is on. Once it's turned on, keep holding until the light starts to flash red and blue. Once the light flashes red and blue the headset is now on pairing mode and is ready to pair with your device.
3.Turn on the Bluetooth capability on your phone and you should see the SB2 Wirless option for connecting.

This worked for me and I couldn't find any other place that had the answer so I figured I post this here for anyone else that had this issue.

Mine did the same thing even after charging the headset. It came up with the blue LED blinking, but still couldn't recognize it. I held the power button until the LED toggled between blue and red.

1. Make sure they're fully charged
2. Hold the power button down until the LED toggles between blue and red
3. Scan for Bluetooth headset

Ive had these for a couple days and worked great with my lg stylo 2 plus. Now even tho i put them into pairing mode and they do pull up on my phone with option to pair, for whatever reason they wont pair with my phone when i press pair. It just says pairing and after 20 secs or so a message saying sorry cant connect right now please try again later.i thought maybe i was tripping so i tried them on my bf phone which paired right way. I tried pairing a bluetooth speaker i have on my phone which connected right up but when i went back to trying to pair my headphones it still says try again later can't connect after 20 secs. Ive already forgotten them, reseat my bluetooth setting on my phone and made sure they were charged. Lights come in correctly an all but im outta options nd irritated.

For anyone trying to figure out how to pair with their iWatch: I had previously paired my buds with my iWatch and when I went for a run today, I couldn't get it to work. I turned off the bluetooth on my iPhone, forgot the SB2 device on my iWatch, but I could not get it to repair see the steps above for pairing the buds. I was able to repair with my iPhone, so I figured the problem was the iWatch. I did a hard reset on the iWatch press both buttons on the side until it reset to the Apple logo, waited forever, then I was able to pair again. Here's your flowchart for pairing with the buds:

1. If your device already paired, forget the device SB2 Wireless
2. Make sure both devices are fully charged
3. Make sure other devices that are paired with your buds are either off, or have their bluetooth turned off.
4. Turn off your buds press and hold the skull until you hear the descending tones
5. Put your device in pairing mode - on the iWatch, click the grey settings gear and then bluetooth.
6. Press and hold the skull on your buds until the led blinks from blue to red. don't worry, you don't have to let go IMMEDIATELY
7. If it fails to pair, giving you a lame excuse that you need to be closer and try again, reset your iWatch by pressing both buttons until you see the Apple logo. Go back to step 4.

I hope this helps. I saw a lot of instructions for how to pair and try again, but for the iWatch the hard reset was the trick.

David responded : 7:28pm, 3rd April 2017 (3 years ago)
The headphones should be charging 'while' you pair. SB2 will be on your detected devices list. Once SB2 is detected, unplug the headphones, turn the headphones off, then turn it back on and connect when the lights appear

Stephan responded : 2:17am, 11th April 2017 (3 years ago)
I seem to have the same problem as @Skullist and @Lupe:

Ive been using the headphones for 6-7 months, 15-20minutes/day, without any problem: I love them .... I use to.... Then, one night, they just wouldn't turn on, they wouldn't blink or anything, has if they didn't even have batteries... So I charged them for a full 7-8 hours until the light went blue.

I unplugged them the way I always do, turned them on and they worked perfectly .... except that when there were no music, they would beep repeatedly...... then, after 10 minutes of usage, they beeped 3-4 times. Otherwise, the sound was perfect and everything seemed fine.

Then, when I tried to turn them off: Nothing ! I pressed the power button 100 times, I tried holding it 5, 10, 20, 60 seconds, nothing. I tried combinations of Volume UP and DOWN with power button for 5, 10, 20 seconds, then combination of volume UP and DOWN together for 5,10,20 seconds, then ALL three buttons at the same time.....

I got NOTHING

Unless someone can come up with a clean solution and convince me that I am at fault, I don't see any reason why I would recommend these headphones to anyone. Which sucks cause the sound quality was quite good...

Thanks in advance,

While headset is connected via usb charging, press and hold the skull until you see the red light and then let go. Wait for 2-3 seconds and long press the skull until you see the blue light blinking rapidly means that you're in pairing mode. Turn on Bluetooth on your phone and SB should appear on the list. From there, select SB and pair. That's all folks. Good luck.

I FINALLY found an answer that actually fixed my problem.

RESET :press and hold both the volume up + and volume down button at once until u see a red and blue light blink, then turn on the device as usual and pair it again with any other device.
This has to be done every time u want to pair a new device and ensure there is high battery charge as well.

GemGem responded : 4:49am, 14th July 2017 (2 years ago)
I did it! I've been having this same problem and what I finally realized was the problem was that I had too many devices paired not in use but on the paired list to my phone. I decided to unpair the ones I wasn't going to use anymore and IMMEDIATELY my phone found my earbuds! I hope this helps someone.

My hesh 2 headphones wouldnt show up to connect (with my iPad 4) bc I accidentally hit forget device. I couldnt get them to work for 2 weeks until I saw this post! I held the power button down and let the red, blue & purple-ish lights circulate until it said discovering, like this post instructed, first try & it showed up again to pair! Thank you!

I had the same problem, earbuds woudn't appear in my bluetooth device list. Trick was to make sure the headphones were ON and THEN do the + and - volume buttons at the same time. Light flashed purple and reset.

Thank you so much for this, Earbud Guy. We were able to resume use, when my son had practically lost hope.

Basically my headphones aren't working, when I turn them on they automatically go into pair mode, like the red and blue are there but it won't connect or anything and I've charged them, I've never had this problem before any help???

OK, so I officially have a fix for the problem where your bpm bt stream bluetooth headphones. So everyone says to hold the middle 20 seconds or to hit it on a table. NO! Don't do the last one bad idea. I had to get a refund and get a new one because of that. This same problem happened with my new pair like three days later. I WAS AMAZED. I was o mad i was looking for sites to help me and no one could help me. I was all like wtf. I was just sitting here and trying to get it to fix but i just kept pressing the middle (call) button over and over again and i saw a flash of blue light and heard the Bluetooth connected voice and i was all like wow that actually worked. Rn i am actually using the same headphones and they are pretty loud on my device so i hope you get this fixed and my post was the best.

Mine was not functioning at all!!! First, I had problems with pairing, then after few minutes I cannot turn on the device. I've read some articles that the device is corrupted and it should re-programmed. Can someone teach me how to do it?
