- Toggle Bluetooth on by pressing the button.
- Tap your Beats headphones from the list of compatible devices to start and finish the pairing process.
Method 3: Restart Your Android Device
A minor software issue on your Android device could prevent the Beats headphones from appearing in the Bluetooth list of devices. Restarting your Android device can resolve the problem.
Follow these steps:
- Press and hold the device’s power button for several seconds.
- From the menu, select Restart.
- Wait until your Android smartphone restarts after being turned off.

Disconnecting and Reconnecting Beats With Android: What to Do
You only need to switch off your Beats headphones or the Bluetooth on your device to disconnect.
On your Android, click the gear icon close to your Beats, then select Unpair or Forget. When you put your Beats in pairing mode, they will also momentarily disconnect.
In order to permanently unplug your Beats from your Android, you need to make your phone forget your Beats.
Simply switch on your Beats to reconnect them to a previously paired device. Your Beats pair automatically with the last device they were connected to once they are switched on. They will enter pairing mode if the other device is not within range.
The only way to reconnect your Beats to an older device if you’ve connected them with another device is to make sure the first device is out of range or turn off its Bluetooth.
Simply having your smartphone forget the headphones and pairing them again the way you did when you originally acquired them can also fix any reoccurring issues.
Pairing your Beats to your Android device is a quick and easy process that only requires turning on Bluetooth on both devices and choosing the headphones from the list of Bluetooth devices that are currently compatible.
With the extensive step-by-step instructions and advice above, you can now confidently resolve any typical problem that could occur throughout the connection procedure.
