It can be extremely annoying when your Bluetooth headphones beep constantly. Though this feature is sometimes useful, it’s frustrating to hear the beeping frequently. This is especially true when it plays over your music.
I’ve had a lot of Bluetooth headphones in my time. A few of them have had this problem, and it’s always awful when a new pair starts doing it. But how do you fix it?
Read on to learn how to stop Bluetooth headphones from beeping. There are different solutions for the type and frequency of the beeping, but there are some general troubleshooting tips you can use.
Why Do My Bluetooth Headphones Keep Beeping?
For the most part, Bluetooth Headphones beep to communicate with you. They beep when they are connecting, when the battery is low, and seemingly everything else in between. It can be frustrating, and the beeping can even become annoying.
But what can cause your headphones to beep?
There could be several reasons your headphones are beeping. Some reasons may depend on the model of your headphones. However, you should be able to eliminate the obvious with this list of common reasons that your headphones might be beeping:
- A weak Bluetooth signal or bad connection
- Low battery life on your phone or headphones
- Headphone volume is too loud
- Headphones are reconnecting during use
- Headphones are paired to two different devices
- Headphones are out of range of the paired device
While there are other reasons your headphones might be beeping, these are the most common. Make sure that you’ve dealt with any of these issues before attempting to troubleshoot your Bluetooth headphones.
General Advice to Stop Bluetooth Headphones from Beeping
Regardless of the model of your Headphones, there are a few things you can try to make the beeping go away. These won’t work all the time, but it’s a good place to start.
Reset Your Bluetooth Headphones
The beeping may go away if you have your device forget your Bluetooth headphones. After this, reset your headphones so their memory is wiped. Your user manual will give you details on how to reset your Bluetooth headphones.
Once the headphones have been reset, pair them to your device again. This may fix the problem.
Restart Your Device
Next, try restarting your device. This can sometimes clear the signal between the device and the headphones. This will stop the beeping. Once the device is restarted, the beeping might go away.
Charge your Device and/or Headphones
The beeping may be due to a low battery. Even if the battery says it’s okay, this may not be the case. Older batteries can give you an incorrect read on the remaining battery life due to wear.
One of the first ways you should try to fix this is by charging your headphones and your device. Leave them on the charge for a few hours, long enough that they should be fully charged. Then, the beeping should stop.
Hold the Volume Buttons
For some reason, your Bluetooth headphones may require a different solution. Holding down the volume buttons can help stop the beeping. Sometimes, holding the ‘volume up’ or ‘volume down’ button for several seconds can eliminate the beeping noise.
This is probably a signal built into the headphones by the manufacturer. This tells your headphones that you are aware of the problem, so they will stop beeping. Of course, this doesn’t work all the time.
Bluetooth Headphones Beep Between Songs
When your Bluetooth Headphones start beeping between songs, it can impact your enjoyment of your music. Here are some steps to take to get the beeping to stop.
- Turn Bluetooth off and then on again in your settings. This may fix a connection issue.
- Reconnect your headphones to your device.
- Charge your headphones.
- Change the volume. Some Bluetooth headphones will beep like this if the volume is too high, so turning it down might help.

Bluetooth Headphones Beeping Constantly
A constant beeping can make using your Bluetooth headphones a chore. It can probably be fixed, but this problem is a bit more serious.
One of the only reasons that your Bluetooth headphones would be beeping constantly is to signal that they are constantly connecting and disconnecting. You can try pairing them with a different device to see if it helps.
If your Bluetooth headphones and device are updated, compatible, or were working fine before, this could be an indication that your Bluetooth headphones are failing. Still, try all of the troubleshooting tips above to stop the beeping before assuming that it’s time to replace your headphones.
