Question about Insignia Bluetooth Wireless Behind-the-Head Headphones - Black

6 Answers

Won't charge or turn on.

I've had these earphones for a while now, and they've worked great the whole time. I've taken good care of them, and they are practically like new. But from one moment to the next, they won't turn on. When I plug it in to the charger, the insignia logo flashes red once and goes dark. Anything I can do?

    This is exactly my problem. I have opened mine in order to check if it could be a broken or loose wire, but no success.

    If someone has a solution, please write me too: crj@pop.com.br

    Thanks

I wrote to Insignia and they recommended the following procedure, which worked for me:

1- Plug the charger into a power outlet
2- Press the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons at the same time for resetting the device.

My earphones are working well now.

This worked for my headphones, when I first purchased them: Thank you for contacting Insignia Products about your NS-BTHDST,Insignia
Bluetooth Headset.
I'll do my best to assist you,so you can start enjoying your product right
away!

According to the issue you described, I'd recommend you to try the following:

1- Turn on the computer and plug in the USB bluetooth adapter and then restart
the computer.
2- Make sure the headset is off and press and hold the multifunction button
until the blue and red lights flash alternately.
3- Open up MY BLUETOOTH PLACES and click on VIEW DEVICES IN RANGE. check if
the NS-BTHDST appears listed. If so, right click on it and click CONNECT. At
that time, you will be asked for the bluetooth password which is 0000 (four
zeros).
4- If the NS-BTHDST does not appear listed, click on SEARCH FOR DEVICES IN
RANGE. Once the headset is found, attempt to connect.

If the product works for music, but you cannot get it to work to chat, please,
refer to the software manufacturer (Yahoo,etc) or the computer manufacturer.
Perhaps there is some configuration you have to change, since the product is
working fine for music.

I hope this helps, but just in case you need further assistance, remember you
can always contact Insignia Products Technical Support at 877-467-4289 and
provide the agent with your case number: 3100497
With this number he will be able to see my notes and assist you faster.

We are 24/7 so you can give us a call any day any time!

Yeah, if you would have looked at the posts in front of you, you would have seen that if you plug the headphones in and then hold down the volume up and volume down buttons at the same time it "resets" the headphones. You then should be able to push the power button and have them come on. I thought my headphones were done and now they work just fine.

Same problem, not charging or turning on. Pushing the volume up and down at the same time then pusing the multifunction button to turn them on worked for me. Working fine now. Happy to have them back. I love these and use them every day. I don't have the receipt anymore from BestBuy so I couldn't return them. Was really bummed out but it works now! :-P

I just got these headphones too and after a week they wont turn on. i hold down the power button and nothing happens. when i plug them into the charger they will charge because i can see the insignia letters light up in red, but then they just wont turn on.

I have the $25 headset...they just stopped working.


i've been through countless pairs of headphones and repairing them is often not worthwhile, once you've had the problem, it usually is recurring. it is suggester to just invest in some headphones that are ware-proof, meaning; fabric-encased wiring and waterproof earphones. most headphones go out because of tangling and untangling the cords because the wires inside are very brittle, are coated in a verry thin layer of plastic that when bent too many times or too far, or too rough, will break off and expose the wiring to the separated other wires causing a short.

Product KOSS UR15C headhones. Problem: short in the cable which causes sound cutout when moved. Its right at the connection to the earphone. WHAT I NEED TO KNOW: How to take the earphone apart...


I'm afraid there's is no easy way of doing it, most headphones I have fixed needed force to get the pads of and for that matter to put them back on! It's just a case of taking great care and easing it off a bit at a time. If you encounter any foam that can be glued on afterwards with Bostik solvent free all purpose glue.

Headphone problem


Hi there and welcome at Fixya, the support team (lfete)

Please try with another pair of earphones and see if it works :O)

If it works with the another earphones, then you have to check yours :

1.See if the cable and connectors are ok
2.Try to move the cable a little bit all the way (you can move it up and down)
3.Then be sure that it is inserted the whole way in, some times you can connect the earphone nearly in to the product, that means one of the right/left side will not play.
If is still not working please return here again

Hope it helps


Have a nice time over there

You probably can if you have any soldering experience. Check this link out:http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1045725/how_to_solder_how_to_repair_headphones/ If you can't ask your friends and acquaintances. A good little fun project.

Philips SHE9550 right earphone is louder


Your current solution to solve the difference in volume (the piece of paper) is not far from the problem.
Your problem is earwax. I have the same earphones and had the same trouble. I checked cable and plug but they were all fine. So then I checked for earwax. It didn't look like I had too much on the rubber plugs - removed that. The problem was what was on the nets. There was some visible, I tried my best to remove that with a sharp knife but the problem remained. I tried to remove some more and found that you can remove the nets easily with a sharp item - just pull them upwards.
There was quite some on the inside of the nets. I thoroughly scraped it all off with the same knife. There can very well be better ways to remove it but this worked perfectly for me.
When all was gone, I tried the earphones and was shocked at how much the volume had gone down in both ears (more in one) before the cleaning.
I hope this helps.

My right earphone won't play


Sound not coming out of one side of the headphone is an indication of connection failure, so that means you have to see where its 'broken' from, either inside the headphone on on the wire somewhere. Usually it happens at the jack, especially if you use an ipod as it tends to get moved alot in pockets, etc..

If this is the case, you could try to cut the wire from where you suspect its broken, and get a 3.5mm (or whatever the original size is) replacement (Do-it-yourself) jack from Radio shack or electronics store.

THen you would have to cut the wire, strip the the rubber coating off, and then if applicable, carefully strip the very thin layer of further insulation thats on the wire it self. Otherwise you would directly connect the cables to the prongs/connections located on the replacement jack. And depending on the jack you would screw it in place or soldier it with soldier and soldiering gun.

If its broken in the headphone or at the headphone, thats much harder to do as you would have to open the head/earphone case and soldier it that way and get it back together in one piece.

Next time don't buy bose headphones and by something cheaper, bose isn't that great, skullcandy is pretty good too. Sennheiser is the best though in my opinion. albieit its expensive too..
