Sleep buds keep disconnecting. It's usually just the left bud. It's just seems to be happening since the last updates. Resest the phone, both the buds and case have been updated, and I am still having issues. I have SoundSport wireless headphones and they never disconnect, so I know it is not an issue with the phone itself. We've even tried connecting them with the iPad instead of the iPhone and that left bud still disconnects. Really disappointed to spend that much on something that no longer works.

I have the exact same issue - my left sleep bud disconnects while the right one is still going. This typically happens in the middle of the night. I've tried placing the left and both buds back into the case then take them both out. Both buds then says 100% battery and then after a few mins, the left one disconnects....
Any luck with the support so far?

My left ear bud started disconnecting during the night a few weeks ago. I updated the software, updated the firmare and even reset the base numerous times. The left ear bud doesn't seem to be able to hold a charge. It's rare these days that it shows past 48% charged. I've cleaned the buds and contacts carefully. It looks like it's charing in the case as the light is flashing, but when I check it, the app still shows it at 48%. Yesterday after charging it a couple hours after I had checked the %, it actualy went down. This makes zero sense. The left ear bud will only last a few hours then turn off. I wear them so I don't hear my husband snoring next to me so I can get a full night's sleep. When the left ear bud just shuts off, I wake up and can't get back to sleep! These have been the most comfortable sleeping than other products I've tried.But this left ear bud issue needs to be addressed. Is it software or is it faulty ear buds?
