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

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
I'll do my best to assist you,so you can start enjoying your product right
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
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
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

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.

This is happening to me. I held down the up and down volume button, nothing happens. If I had the receipt I would take them back. It is very frustrating when you pay all that money for something and it goes out on you. I wouldn't recommend these headphones to anyone.

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.
