When I first bought them from Wal-Mart, only the right earbud would play music while the left said it was connected, but with no sound coming out. Now it's the opposite, I hear music coming out from the left side, but not from the right side. I've tried unpairing them from my phone and connecting them back, still the same problem. I tried fully charging them, and they are, but it's still the same problem. If someone can actually help and actually provide a thorough and detailed answer to my problem that would be greatly appreciated.

To clarify, are you sure you are pairing the buds together before you pair them to the phone ?

I don't think so cause I did find out that if i hold the buttons longer than 6 seconds a double chime would sound, which is why I said only sound came from one side of the earbuds, and I assume that's the paring chime, unless I'm wrong. I messed with that to see if it'll work, but it never did. I just wanna know how, in thorough detail, how to pair the two buds together and then how, again, in thorough detail, to make sound come out of both earbuds.

I think I may have a solution. Try resetting the Master Earbud before pairing.

To Reset the Master Earbud.

1. Hold down button on BOTH earbuds until you hear 2 chimes after the pairing prompt.
2. Then quickly press the button 2 times on the (left or right) master earbud until you hear a chime in that ear ONLY.

Connect Earbuds to Bluetooth
1. Press and hold BOTH earbuds until you hear the pairing Prompt in BOTH ears.
2. Select ONLY ONE Tzumi Soundmates in the Bluetooth options on the device. IF YOU SEE TWO OPTIONS YOU MAY HAVE TO REPEAT THE PROCESS OVER AGAIN.

3. Once device confirms Device Connected You should hear in both ears. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem, the only way I got them to work together was to delete one of the earbuds off my phone and they paired together.

The answer above from Sterling worked perfectly. I had tried everything so as to not only hear out of one ear bud at a time, and nothing worked - until I tried his suggestion.
