I’d always wanted to try ear buds without any kind of head wrap or cord, so I bought the SoundCore Life Note ear buds and honestly, I wouldn’t recommend these things to my worst enemy.
Problem one: suddenly they decided to pair only one ear bud at a time. Most devices will only allow one bluetooth audio device, so I basically got to pick which ear I wanted to be deaf in.
Solution: Place in case and press button for 3 seconds (until lights turn red and blink. This resets the ear buds so they pair to each other. Batteries last for 9 hours, so I left the case at home. Thanks, guys.
Current problem: They will no longer enter pairing mode when removed from the case. Wasted my entire lunch break trying to fix this to no avail.
I have never had so many problems with a pair of head phones before. I understand that unlike a normal pair of head phones connected by wire, they need some other means of communicating, but this should have been a background process, not something end users could mistakenly mess up.
