when I first got my Beats Studio 3, it took me a little while to learn what all the buttons on the side does. Specially, I didn’t know how to turn off beats studio 3 after using them for the first time.
With so many features and buttons, it can be challenging to figure out how to power them down properly. Luckily, turning off your Beats Studio 3 headphones is quite easy.
You can easily turn your Beats Studio 3 off by pressing and holding the power button for 5 seconds. The lights will turn ON and then completely Off along with the headphone.
However, sometimes, you might struggle with turning your Beats OFF for various reasons.
In this article, I will explain how to turn off Beats Studio 3 headphones using the power button as well
We will also discuss some common reasons why your headphones might not turn off and how to troubleshoot these issues.
How to Turn Off Beats Studio 3?
Turning off your Beats Studio 3 might not be difficult but it surely isn’t very intuitive. The power button is designed to perform various tasks depending on how it is pressed.
So you have to learn (at least for the first time) how to use the power button to turn the Beats off.
- Press and hold the power button on the left earpiece for a few seconds.
- The LED light on the earpiece will start flashing.
- Keep holding the power button until the LED light turns off completely then release the power button.
Your headphones are now turned off. To turn them back on, simply press the power button again.
One thing that I have seen people doing wrong is to keep holding the button after the lights are off. If you do that, you risk turning the headphones ON again when you release the button.
So, as soon as the lights are off, release the button and visually make sure that the headphone lights are not turned ON after you release the power button.
Do Beats Turn Off Automatically?
Beats Studio 3 headphones do not have an automatic turn-off feature. This means that you must manually turn off the headphones to conserve battery life.
If you do not turn off your Beats Studio 3 headphones, the battery will continue to drain. This can result in a shorter battery life and can also cause the headphones to stop working altogether.
Therefore, it is important to always turn off your headphones when you are not using them.
Beats Studio 3 Won’t Turn OFF – Troubleshooting
In most cases, your Beats Studio 3 headphones won’t trouble you much with turning off. Its a simple and straightforward process.
However, if you find yourself struggling with turning your Beats OFF, there might be something wrong with the headphones and might need troubleshooting.
Charge your Beats sufficiently
One of the most common reasons why your Beats Studio 3 headphones might not turn off is due to a low battery level.
When the battery is low, the headphones might behave erratically, and some functions might not work as expected. If you are unable to turn off your beats at critically low battery, this low battery might be the reason.
To fix this issue, try charging your headphones for a while and then attempting to turn them off again.
Check for faulty power Button
A faulty power button can also cause your Beats headphones to not turn off (and on).
The power button is probably the most used mechanical component, and it might malfunction if your headphones have been in use for quite some time.
The most common cause of button malfunction is accumulation of dust and debris under the button which prevents sufficient contact of the conducting surfaces when pressed.
Since Beats Studio 3 are not waterproof or even water resistant, sweat can easily seep in along with dirt particles.
If you are DIY person, you can use WD 40 Spray to clean the button but if this seems overwhelming to you, its probably a good idea to get help from Apple or third-party repair service.
Reset your Beats
Another potential cause of this issue is software problems. If your headphones are not properly synced with your device, or if there are any software glitches, they may not respond to your attempts to turn them off.
To troubleshoot this issue, try resetting your headphones by holding down the power button and volume down button for 10 seconds, as recommended by Apple Support.
A soft reset can remove any software issues caused by temporary cache build up or other reasons. It will also remove your paired devices so you will have to pair again.
If a soft reset don’t fix your issue, also check if you are on the latest version of the firmware.
On Apple devices, your Beats will be automatically updated, but on Android, you will have to check for updates manually inside the Beats App.
Most software issues can be solved by an update so don’t overlook this important step.
Drain your battery fully
While searching for this topic online, I came across a seemingly helpful method that has worked for many users.
If your Beats are not turning off, just put them away and let the battery drain to the point that it turns off on its on.
After that, charge your Beats fully, and your power button should be able to turn your Beats OFF & ON normally.
Disconnect & reconnect Bluetooth
This is another hack I found that has worked for other people. Turn your Bluetooth OFF on your phone for a few minutes and ON again.
Now, reconnect your Beats to your phone again and try turning them OFF by pressing & holding the power button for a few seconds.
