The Skullcandy Sesh Evo are great budget wireless earbuds. They have a superior base and tons of other features that make them a great choice for the money.
If you are new to Skullcandy and don’t know how to pair Skullcandy Sesh Evo wireless earbuds, this short guide will help you.
Most Sesh earbuds pair quite smoothly. However, some might also face a few common issues.
One of the issues is Skullcandy Sesh Evo earbuds not pairing together properly, and only one earbud getting audio as a result.
This is a common issue with other Skullcandy earbuds too, so I will explain a quick fix for it as well. So, let’s go through the pairing process of Sesh Evos.
How to pair Skullcandy Sesh Evo earbuds?
Pairing your new Skullcandy Sesh Evo is not a difficult process. Follow the below steps to get your earbuds paired to your phone. This process is pretty much the same for iPhone and Android.
- Take the earbuds out of the packaging, put them in the charging case, and check the red LED on both earbuds. Do not close the lid.
- Remove the earbuds together, and they will start flashing blue light together. This indicates that both earbuds are synching together.
- Once they are synced and paired together, the left earbud will start flashing Red & Blue, which means they are ready to be paired to your Bluetooth device.
- On your phone, under Bluetooth devices, you will see Sesh Evo. Tap it to start pairing.
- You will get a prompt for a Bluetooth pairing request. Tap Pair.
- When pairing is done, you will hear a voice saying “Connected” on both earbuds.
This is the normal process of pairing Skullcandy Sesh Evo earbuds. However, sometimes, things don’t work out as smoothly. You can try the following quick fixes:
- Make sure that both earbuds are charged and turned on. If any earbud is turned OFF, press the button for 2 seconds to turn it ON.
- Try repairing the earbuds with your phone by going to the Bluetooth menu and selecting “Forget this device” for the Sesh Evo earbuds. Then follow the pairing process again.
- If the issue remains, restart your phone and try to pair the earbuds again.
One of the major issues Sesh users have been facing is when the Sesh earbuds won’t pair together, and only one earbud pair and work while the other remains inactive.
This article will list simple steps to solve these common pairing issues.
Sesh Evo buds won’t sync together
As we discussed in the pairing process, both earbuds need to sync with each other before they can properly pair with your phone. During the syncing process, the earbuds create a connection with each other.
When you take out both earbuds from the case, they should first sync together automatically and then show up on your phone as a single Bluetooth device.
However, sometimes, both buds fail to sync together, and you won’t get a complete pairing.
This is one of the most common issues with Skullcandy Sesh Evo or many other Skullcandy models.
There is a reason for this common glitchy behavior.
Skullcandy has designed Seshs to be used in mono mode too, which means they can be paired separately to your phone and can be used alone.
This creates some unintended pairing issues.
If the earbuds don’t synch with each other properly before pairing, you might get audio in only one earbud.
Most of the time, the right Sesh earbud won’t work, and you will only get audio in the left one.
When this happens, only one earbud will connect to your phone in mono mode, and the other will remain inactive.
Someone who doesn’t know about the solo mode or the need for earbuds to first sync together before pairing to the phone might think this is a fault.
How To sync Sesh Evo buds together?
The solution to this unintended result of mono mode in the Sesh earbuds is rather easy. You have to unpair the earbuds and power cycle them so that they can start fresh.
To do this, follow the below steps. You can give it another go if it doesn’t work on the first try.
1. Unpair your earbuds from phone
First, open your phone’s Bluetooth list and remove your earbuds. If you have two Sesh Evo devices registered, you can Forget both devices.
After removing the earbuds from the Bluetooth list, turn OFF your Bluetooth (important!)
2. Power off your Sesh earbuds
Remove both Sesh earbuds from the case and power them off. To power off, touch and hold each bud for 4 seconds.
The LED light will flash Red & Blue until it becomes Red and shuts off. Repeat this process for the other earbud as well.
3. Reset your Sesh Evo earbuds
This is the main step. Once your earbuds are disconnected from your phone and turned OFF, you can power cycle or reset them.
To do this, touch and hold both earbuds together for 10 seconds. They will flash blue first and then red.
Once the reset is complete, put both earbuds back in the case. The red LEDs will turn ON on both earbuds, indicating that the earbuds are now charging.
Now your earbuds are reset.
4. Sync the buds together
Take the earbuds out from the case together after the reset.
The blue LED on both earbuds will flash blue simultaneously while both earbuds sync.
Once both earbuds are synced, the blue LEDs will stop flashing, and the left earbud will start flashing red & blue, indicating that they are ready to be paired to the phone.
5. Pair earbuds to phone
Finally, you are going to pair your earbuds to your phone. Turn your Bluetooth on and look for discovered devices under the Bluetooth devices list.
You will see Sesh Evo in the list. Tap and start the pairing process.
During the pairing process, you will get the confirmation prompt TWICE. You have to approve both pairing requests.
Once the earbuds are paired successfully, you will see two Sesh Evo devices in the paired Bluetooth devices list – one for each bud – and both will show “Connected“
Now you can enjoy interruption-free high-quality Skullcandy music.
Conclusion – Pair Skullcandy Sesh Evo Wireless Earbuds
Normally, the Skullcandy earbuds pair with your phone without any issues. I have owned my pair of Sesh Evos for more than six months, and they have caused pairing issues only a few times.
The simplest solution to these pairing issues is a power cycle and pairing again with your phone. The whole process can be done in under a minute or two so it is not a big deal.
If the process doesn’t work for some reason, you can repeat it, and it will work.
