Re: On Ear Wireless headphones won`t pair with my Samsung Galaxy S20

Hello mckenzie1753, 

 

I am sorry that since updating your phone you're unable to connect your headphones. We would love to do what we can to help. 

 

You have said to have already performed some troubleshooting, can you let us know what steps you have already performed? We wouldn't want to re-advise you 😊

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for that confirmation. 

 

Have you ever been able to get a successful connection to your Galaxy S20?

 

I would firstly suggest performing a reset of your headphones. Instruction on how to do this can be found below. 

  • Power off your product
  • Wait 30 seconds
  • Connect your product to a wall outlet using a USB charger
  • Wait five seconds
  • Disconnect the USB cable from the headset
  • Wait one minute
  • Power on your product.

Do let us know how you get on.

Feel more. Do more. Be more.

Thanks for confirming @mckenzie1753.

 

Let's also make sure that your On-Ear wireless headphones are up to date. Please go to btu.bose.com on your computer and follow the instructions.

 

Have you since been able to pair with your old Samsung S8 or any other devices?

Re: On Ear Wireless headphones won`t pair with my Samsung Galaxy S20

Hi. I am replying to this thread because I am having the same issues connecting to my wireless headphones. I was on a samsung a7 and went to a samsung s20 fe. I have tried all the steps you mentioned on this thread. I can get the phone to connect to my TV, my speaker bar and even my car. They won't connect to the phone. I even installed the newest software from your site to the headphones. What else do you recommend? They are the Bose Sound Sport headphones.

Re: On Ear Wireless headphones won`t pair with my Samsung Galaxy S20

@nsriderman05 Thanks for chiming in! As you have a different set of headphones, clearing the pairing list would be a different process. To do this, hold the Bluetooth button for 10 seconds until you hear "Bluetooth device list cleared". Then, on your phone, ensure that you remove any entry of the headphones from the Bluetooth list. Now reconnect them.

 

Let me know if you were able to this time.
