Avantree Headphones Not Pairing: DIY Fixes

If you’re having trouble pairing your Avantree headphones, there are a few steps you can try to fix the issue.

Step 1: Clear any potential wireless interference devices

  • Other wireless devices nearby, like WiFi routers, TV boxes, or other Bluetooth devices, can interfere with the pairing process.
  • To solve this, turn off these devices when you’re trying to pair your headphones.
  • Also, you can take the headphones and transmitter to your car to pair them there. The transmitter only needs a USB cable from the car’s USB port for power during pairing.

Step 2: Try pairing somewhere else

  • Bluetooth connections can be affected by nearby WiFi routers, TV streaming devices, or other Bluetooth devices.
  • Move these devices away or try pairing your headphones in a different location.

If you’re still unable to pair, proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: Factory reset

  • Performing a factory reset on your Avantree headphones may help.
  • Visit the Avantree website (avantree.com).
  • Search for the instructions on how to factory reset your specific device by entering its name or model number followed by “reset” in the search bar.
  • Follow the provided guide to reset your device.
  • After resetting, the device should automatically enter pairing mode again.

Step 4: Check battery levels and charging

  • Low battery levels can sometimes prevent proper pairing.
  • Make sure your Avantree headphones and transmitter adapter are sufficiently charged.
  • If the battery is low, charge them fully before attempting to pair again.

Step 5: Check Bluetooth compatibility

  • Ensure that your Avantree headphones and the device you’re trying to pair them with are compatible with each other.
  • Check the headphone’s user manual or the Avantree website for compatibility information.
  • If they are not compatible, you may need to consider using a different device or a Bluetooth adapter.

Step 6: Update firmware/software

  • Outdated firmware or software can cause pairing issues.
  • Check for any available firmware or software updates for your device.
  • If updates are available, follow the provided instructions to update your device.
  • After updating, try pairing your headphones again.

Step 7: Reset Bluetooth settings on your device

  • Sometimes, the Bluetooth settings on your device can become corrupted, leading to pairing problems.
  • Go to the Bluetooth settings on your device and find the option to “Forget” or “Remove” the Avantree headphones from the list of paired devices.
  • Once removed, restart your device and try pairing your headphones again from scratch.

  • Tap the Multi-Function Button on the transmitter gently.
  • If they don’t connect, tap the Multi-Function Button on the headphones as well.
  • When successfully connected, both the headphone’s LED indicator and the transmitter’s LED indicator should turn solid blue.

If they still don’t connect, move to Step 2.

Step 2: Get the headphones into pairing mode

  • Turn off the headphones.
  • Press and hold the Multi-Function Button on the headphones until its LED indicator flashes red and blue.
  • Keep the headphones close to the turned-on transmitter.
  • They should connect quickly, and both the headphone’s LED indicator and the transmitter’s LED indicator will turn solid blue.

If they still can’t connect, proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: Factory reset both the headphones and the transmitter

  • Check your user manual for instructions on how to reset the headphones and/or the transmitter.
  • After resetting, both devices will automatically enter Bluetooth Pairing Mode, indicated by the red and blue flashing LED indicators.

Keep the devices close to each other in pairing mode. The LED indicators will turn solid blue when they successfully connect.

Step 4: Lock them together again

  • Double-click the MFB button on the transmitter.
