A quick and standard solution to the startup problem of your Beats Studio Buds is to place the earphones back into the charging case and wait for a while.

So, this will “jump-start” the Beats Studio earbuds and provide enough power supply for a single startup, to test their functionality.

Here’s how to perform a “Soft” reset on the Beats Studio Buds in detail:

  1. Open the lid of the Beats Studio charging case.
  2. Next, put both earbuds into the case individually.
  3. Close the charging case’s lid and wait 5 seconds.
  4. Open the lid and eject both Beats Studio earbuds.
  5. Check if the charging case is indicating the startup.
Important: Do NOT place the buds immediately back into the case as this will deactivate the buds’s Bluetooth function instantly. Wait for at least 30 seconds to determine whether the buds will pair automatically or the connection will appear in the Bluetooth tab of your source device.
