Why are Beats Studio Buds Not Showing Up on Bluetooth?

It’s important to know why your Beats Studio Buds could not be showing up on Bluetooth before we dive into troubleshooting steps. There can be several reasons why this could be happening. However, here are some of the most common reasons:

  1. Distance: Your Beats Studio Buds are not in range of your device. A more reliable connection can be established by physically approaching the device.
  2. Interference: Bluetooth transmissions are vulnerable to interference from other wireless devices. The interference caused by these devices can cause your Beats Studio Buds to not show up in Bluetooth.
  3. Low Battery: Your Beats Studio Buds might not show up on the Bluetooth list if their battery life is extremely low.
  4. Firmware Issues: Outdated software can hinder your buds’ performance.
  5. Connectivity Issues: Bluetooth connections are prone to disputes and other issues. If your Beats Studio Buds have a connectivity issue, they won’t show up on Bluetooth.

How to Fix Beats Studio Buds Not Showing Up on Bluetooth

Now that we have identified the potential causes let’s explore the detailed step-by-step solutions to fix the Beats Studio Buds not showing up on Bluetooth issues. There are many solutions, so make sure to try all of them to find the one that works for you.

Fix 1: Move your Beats Studio Buds Closer

Moving closer to your smartphone may help you get a better Bluetooth connection with your Beats Studio Buds if you’re struggling to pair them. Following these instructions will improve the Bluetooth connection between your Beats Studio Buds and your device:

The ideal Bluetooth range is 30 feet (9 meters), so be sure you’re not too far away. Overextending the range of a Bluetooth signal might disrupt the connection.

Investigate your immediate environment for any interference. Electromagnetic radiation from appliances, such as microwaves and wireless networks, can damage your Beats Studio Buds, so keep them away from them. These gadgets can potentially interfere with Bluetooth signals and hence reduce connectivity.

If at all possible, avoid congested situations where there are a lot of Bluetooth devices near one another. There is a risk of signal instability due to interference from surrounding devices. Leaving for a place with fewer people can make a difference.

Fix 2: Charge your Beats Studio Buds

When your Beats Studio Buds don’t pair, the first thing to check is whether or not they have received a full charge. If not, you must charge your Beats Studio Buds as soon as possible. Here’s how:

  1. Plug the USB end of the charging cord into the bottom of the Beats Studio Buds case.
  2. Connect the cable’s opposite end to a charging port on your computer or an AC wall plug.
  3. Give the earbuds some charging time (about an hour). There is a charging status LED on the case to let you know. At first, it can blink red to alert you to a low battery.
  4. You can plug the case when the LED turns solid white, indicating that the charging is complete.
  5. You can try reconnecting your Beats Studio Buds once they’ve finished charging to see if it fixes the problem.

Fix 3: Reset your Beats Studio Buds/Enter Pairing Mode

Resetting and entering pairing mode on your Beats earbuds should fix most connectivity and functioning issues. In many cases, this solution has proved to successfully fix issues with Bluetooth connectivity. The procedure is as follows:

  1. First, place both earphones in the charging case and close the lid.
  2. Now, find the Power button and press and hold it for about 10 seconds.
  3. You’ll see the LED lights begin blinking.
  4. As soon as the LED lights begin flashing, pairing mode is activated.
  5. Now, try reconnecting your Beats Studio Buds to your device again. It should show up on Bluetooth.

If resetting the Beats Studio Buds and entering pairing mode does not resolve connectivity issues, move to the next solution.

Fix 4: Update the Firmware

Bluetooth connection problems can also be caused due to outdated firmware. Fixing issues with your Beats Studio Buds could be as simple as installing the latest software. Firmware upgrades not only fix faults and improve functionality but can sometimes provide new features. Different devices have different procedures for updating the Beats Studio Buds’ firmware.

Note: Apple has discontinued the Beats updater app in favour of over-the-air firmware updates for Beats audio products. The updates on Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPad, and Mac are now automatic, while Android requires you to install the Beats app.

Follow these steps to update the Beats Studio Buds firmware on Android:

  1. First, get the Beats app by visiting the website or the Google Play Store and downloading it. This app will be the gateway to firmware upgrades.
  2. To pair your Beats Studio Buds with the app, launch it and then follow the on-screen prompts.

  4. The Beats app will automatically check for firmware upgrades after a successful connection has been made.
  5. In case an update is available, you will be prompted to download and install it.
  6. All you have to do to get the update on your Beats Studio Buds is follow the on-screen prompts and give permission.

On the other hand, as mentioned earlier, Apple devices like the iPhone and iPad will automatically install the update once you pair them. If you still want to use the Beats updater app, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Download the Beats updater from the official website for Mac or Windows.
  2. Connect your Beats Studio Buds to your computer using a USB cable.
  3. Launch the Beats updater application and wait for it to recognize your buds.
  4. Select “Beats Studio Buds” from the list of headphone models.
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to begin the update process.
