Here are the four simple steps to charge your Beats headphones. 

1# Check Your Battery Status

The Fuel Gauge LED lights located below the power button on the right earpiece are used to check the battery status. Different kinds of lights indicate different things. Like, the five white lights signify that the Beat headphones are fully, or nearly fell, charged. One red light shows that the battery is running low. A blinking red light indicates that you’re about to run out of battery. If there’s no light in the headphones then it means that it has no charge. 

2# Connect The Charging Cable In The Right Earpiece

You must have gotten a charging cable along with your headphones. Use it to charge your headphones. Plug in the smaller end of your headphones in the right earpiece. 

3# Connect The Charging Cable To The AC Adapter

Apart from a charging cable, your Beats headphones also come with an AC adapter. Put the bigger end of the USB cable inside the AC adapter. Alternatively, you can plug the USB cable into a desktop or laptop. Although, if you choose to do this,  it might take a little longer to charge your headphones. 

4# Plug The AC Adapter In A Wall Outlet

After you’ve connected the headphones to the AC adapter, you can plug it into a wall outlet. Make sure that the outlet has a proper electric supply. But if your headphones do not charge this way, try using a different charging cable. It’s possible that the one you’re using doesn’t work well.

  • Put the earbuds back in the charging case. 
  • Plug the charging case into a USB-C cable that comes with the Beats Studio Buds. 
  • Connect the two to a power source. You can use a wall adapter or your laptop’s USB port.
