Troubleshooting Tips to Reset Your OnePlus Buds Z2:

Sometimes you may face connectivity issues with wireless earphones like the Buds Z2. Resetting them to factory default settings often resolves software-related problems.

Here is a simple step-by-step guide to reset your OnePlus Buds Z2:

  1. Place both Buds Z2 in the charging case and close the lid.
  2. Press and hold the Setup button on the charging case for about 10 seconds.
  3. Continue holding the button until the LED light starts flashing red.
  4. The flashing red light means the reset to factory settings is now complete.

Resetting the earbuds this way can fix a lot of issues caused by software bugs. If the problem still persists after resetting, you can try repairing the Buds with your phone using the HeyMelody app.


Hardware vs Software Issues:

If resetting the Buds Z2 does not solve the problem, it is likely a hardware defect. Since the Buds Z2 uses the same 11mm audio drivers as the OnePlus Buds Pro, hardware issues are rare.

In conclusion, try resetting your OnePlus Buds Z2 earphones first to fix any software bugs. If the issues remain, take your Buds to the nearest OnePlus service center to get them checked for hardware faults.
