One of the simplest reasons why Beats Studio Buds are not charging could be improper placement in their charging case. Make sure you placed them correctly in the case, watch the ear tips and close the lid. 

Restart The Beats Studio Buds

Restarting your devices can get rid of many bugs, malfunctions and software glitches in your devices, including your Beats Studio Buds earphones. To restart your Beats Studio Buds follow the steps below:

  1. Unpair them from all devices
  2. Place both of the earbuds in their charging case
  3. Hold down the system button on the charging case for about 15 seconds, or until you see the LED light flash red and white and then release the button

Try A Different Power Source Or A Cable

Try A Different Power Source Or A Cable

The problem might lie in the power source or the charging cable and not the earbuds at all. To check if the problem indeed lies in the power source, try plugging it into a different one and see if it works. If it still doesn’t work, try replacing the cable next and check if the buds are being charged now. 

Try Another Charging Case

You can try placing the Beats Studio Buds in another charging case if you have any available ones to check if they would charge in that case. If they do, you need to replace the charging case of the Beats Studio Buds.

Check The Pins In The Charging Case

If the pins are damaged then that could be the answer to why Beats Studio Buds are not charging. What you need to look for is any kind of damage or even if one pin is shorter than others are. If you notice that a pin is damaged you will need to either fix it or replace the charging case. 

Clean Your Beats Studio Buds

Dirt, debris and wax buildup could very possibly be the reason why your earbuds are not charging. What you need to do first is remove the earbuds from their charging case after you disconnect the charging cable if you have it connected. You will need to clean both the earbuds and the charging case. 

What you need is a cotton swab, isopropyl alcohol and a lint free cloth. 

Dampen the cotton swab just a little in isopropyl alcohol and gently clean the earbuds. Make sure to pay extra attention to charging poles on the earbuds, you can clean them with a toothbrush as well but be sure to be gentle. 

Then take the charging case and clean it thoroughly as well, again be sure to pay extra attention to the charging pins, which you can also go over with a toothbrush gently to remove dust and debris. Be sure to clean the charging port as well, that is very important. 

When you finish take the lint free cloth and go over everything with it one more time. 

Update The Firmware

Just in case your firmware is outdated, you should update it because an outdated server can be the reason your Beats Studio Buds are not charging. If you are using an Apple device then your Beats should update automatically. If you are using an Android device then you will need to install the Beats app, which you can find in the Play Store. Connect the Beats Studio Buds and scroll down until you see the Firmware version.

Replace The Battery

The last thing we recommend doing is replacing the battery if nothing else worked. We also recommend going to a professional to do this, or if you know how to do it yourself, even better.

Contact Apple Support

If none of our solutions helped you fix the problem then you should probably try contacting Apple Support. In addition, if your Beats Studio Buds are under warranty, you can take them to an Apple Store and they will either fix them or replace them.
