Tips for sound issues while using 360 Audio

• Check the earbuds are placed correctly in your ears

If you experience sound issues using the 360 Audio feature, make sure that the earbuds are placed perfectly in your ears. If you don't wear the earbuds properly, they may not work with the 360 Audio feature, or sound quality may be poor.

Hold the earbuds so that you see the imprinted direction marks, insert the earbuds into your ears, and then adjust the earbuds by rotating them until they sit comfortably in your ears. The touch-sensitive sensors will detect that you are wearing the earbuds when you put them on. Then, the earbud will emit a sound informing you that the earbud is detected.

• Check earbuds are close to the connected device

Make sure that your earbuds and connected device are close together, we recommend using this feature when your devices are within an arm’s reach. If not, sound may not be played smoothly and could occasionally disconnect.

Note: 

  • This feature may not be supported by certain media because of how the media is played.
  • When you are in areas with poor signal reception, the connection to the mobile device may be lost temporarily.
  • Device screenshots and menu may vary depending on the device model and software version.
