I've had my soundsports for just under a year now and have always noticed occasionally I would plug them in and the light would immediately turn green, normally unplugging them then plugging back in would fix the issue. The last month this issue has gotten worse to the point where I am unable to get them to charge now. At most the amber blinking light will blink 5 times before switching to green and refusing to charge further. Additionally, this problem got more prominent with every firmware update and now if I unplug the headphones and wait 5 minutes then turn them on and off consecutively it will read out 3 different battery percentages (i.e. 30%, then 100%, then 70%). I've tried the traditional troubleshooting suggestions but to no avail. I'm stuck between thinking its firmware related or an equipment malfunction, either way, I use these daily and would like to fix them. Any suggestions?
