JLAB Audio has configured their products to work differently from how other brands work. However, the process is not complicated once you do it the first time. They have a couple of famous headphones designed to offer high quality audio over Bluetooth.
Some of the most popular models are the JLAB Neon, JLAB Go Air, and the JLAB JBuddies among others. In this guide, we go over how to pair some of these headphones to Bluetooth devices at home and away.
How To Pair JLAB Bluetooth Headphones
Most JLAB headphones have a unique pairing process different from the other. However, for most, you only need to press and hold the pairing button for a few seconds to get them in pairing mode. After that, search the headphones on your device and click connect to initiate the connection.
Once you pair the devices the first time, they will pair automatically from there onwards as long as they are in close proximity, and they both have Bluetooth turned on. Below is a detailed pairing process for some of the most common headphones from JLAB.
Pairing The JLAB Neon
JLAB Neon is one of most bought product from JLAB and for a good reason. It offers appealing features, style, and audio quality. It allows you to control the volume of audio, pause, play, and skip tracks from a single button.
You can also use it to accept or reject calls. Its dual-color design makes it a stylish unit.
To pair the headphone, you need to press and hold the power button for about 10 seconds when the device is off. When you do that, the LED lights turns blue and blinks quickly as it searches for available Bluetooth devices.
Turn on Bluetooth from your device (whether PC or phone or car radio) and make it discoverable. From your device, you should see the JLAB Neon. Click on JLAB Neon from your device and click connect to initiate the connection.
After the connection is made, the blinking blue light will slow down, and you can start streaming your audio. After successful pairing, you never have to repeat the process again as the devices will connect automatically whenever they are in range.
Pairing JLAB JBuddies Studio
JLAB offers different models of the JBuddies. There is a kid’s version, a wired version, and the wireless version. If you are a gamer, there is one with a microphone, allowing you listen and talk at the same time.
It comes with built-in volume regulators and easy controls for the best audio quality. To connect the device to other Bluetooth devices in your home, car, or office, start by turning on Bluetooth in these devices. Ensure that the devices are discoverable before you turn on pairing on your JBuddies.
To turn on pairing on JBuddies, press and hold the two buttons on the rear side of each headphone. Do this for about seven seconds or until the white light starts flashing. The flashing light is an indication that the headphones are ready to pair to other devices.
Search for the JBuddies in your phone, computer, or car radio and click pair to start the pairing. Once you pair, the headphones are ready to start playing. This first connection makes it easier for you to make other connections in the future.
Pairing JLAB JBUD Air
The Air series is the most advanced series that JLAB offers to users. These headphones have more advanced features to play better quality sound and to make them easier to use.
The headphones connect the same way as the JLAB Neon. Press and hold the power button for about 10 seconds when the device is off. Once the blue light starts blinking, the device is ready to connect.
Switch on Bluetooth on your smartphone or device you need to connect to and search for the headphones. You should be able to switch off Bluetooth from the settings of your device.
Click on JLAB JBUD Air to start pairing, and after that, the device is ready to start playing audio. After the initial pairing, you should be able to connect the devices automatically every time they are in close proximity.
Troubleshooting Connection Problems With JLAB Bluetooth Headphones
With most headphones from JLAB, you need to press and hold the power button for about 10 seconds to initiate pairing. After that, the two devices will connect automatically without you having to redo the pairing process again and again. However, there are times that the headphones might fail to connect.
If that happens, it is either the headphones or the connecting device that has a problem, and you should be able to troubleshoot that.
The simplest troubleshooting procedure is to switch off the headphones and turn off Bluetooth from the connecting device. Once you restart the connection, wait for about 30 seconds and pair the two devices again. This simple trick should clear any simple software glitches that might be affecting the connection.
If you do not see your headphones on your connecting device, ensure that the device is discoverable so that the headphones can discover the device to make a connection. If the headphones still won’t connect, test them on another device.
Using another device helps you identify whether the problem is your headphones or the connecting device.
What if the headphones connect, but the audio is less than perfect?
JLAB offers the Burn In Tool, which allows you to get the best of your headphones. Check the JLAB website to learn more about this tool and how it can help better the quality of the audio you listen to.
Better still, if you have earbuds, you can try a different silicone tip. The company offers different silicone tips with the earbuds, so you can choose the audio isolation level that meets your needs. If the audio quality is still poor, you should check your connecting device.
Check the volume level in your connecting device and also check any equalizer settings in your device. If the audio device has equalizer settings that offer poor quality sound, you may never get the quality you are looking for.
Can You Use the JLAB App?
The JLAB App is only available for the JLAB Epic Air series. If your headphone is one of the two Epic Air earbuds models, you can make the connection and have the control you need.
The app allows you to customize the settings for your earbuds, including the volume levels, equalizer settings, and much more. If you have problems saving your custom settings, you should try installing the app afresh.
JLAB has a wide selection of products for users to choose from. Their headphones are engineered to offer the best fit, high quality audio, easy controls, and connect to all audio devices with Bluetooth capability.
Although they pair differently from other Bluetooth headphones, the process is the same with most of the JLAB models. You only need to press and hold until the pairing light starts blinking. Once you pair the devices, the blinking light will start blinking slower, and it will be ready to start playing the audio.
All the headphones come with a detailed user manual with the pairing instructions being on the first page. If you are ever confused, check the manual.
