If your Galaxy Buds are beeping in your ear, don’t try to ignore them and hope they’ll stop. It’s a warning signal.
This article is here to tell you why your Galaxy Buds started beeping at you and five easy things you can do to stop the annoying sound!
Why Are My Galaxy Buds Making Beeping Noises?
There are three potential reasons why your Galaxy Buds are making beeping noises:
- Need to recharge
- Issues with Bluetooth
Your first thought may be to recharge your buds. Samsung Galaxy Earbuds will beep when the battery is at 15%, 10%, and 5%.
Regardless of the reason, you should take your Galaxy Buds out of your ears when they start to beep. It may be a sign of a low battery or a Bluetooth connection issue. However, the beeping noise is more commonly associated with the buds overheating.
What Causes Galaxy Buds to Overheat?
Your Galaxy Buds will beep consistently as a safety warning when overheating. Remove them immediately if they feel hot to touch while in your ear or begin to beep.
All Galaxy earbuds have a specific temperature range in which they can operate. Ideally, you can use your earbuds when temperatures are between 32 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
Despite claiming to endure temperatures as hot as 95 degrees, Samsung Galaxy Buds overheat easily, especially when in direct sunlight. They tolerate warmer temperatures easier indoors than outside.
However, heated indoor spaces can also cause issues. Use while inside a sauna is another common culprit for overheating earbuds.
Galaxy Buds Bluetooth Connection Issues
If your device is continuously creating a beeping noise while in use indoors, then the problem is with Bluetooth.
Users who connect their Samsung Galaxy Buds to an iOS device have noted annoying beeping. If your iOS operates on outdated firmware, it may struggle to cooperate with the buds and create a beeping noise.
Another common issue is when you use your Galaxy Buds for phone calls. If a consecutive beeping occurs after you end a phone call, it’s most likely an error with Samsung’s “Play tone when call ends” feature.
5 Ways to Stop Galaxy Buds Beeping Noises
1. Let the Earbuds Cool
The first thing you should do when dealing with beeping Galaxy Buds is to remove them from your ears. If they feel hot to touch, then you know they have overheated.
You should immediately turn off any music playing inside the buds. Turn them off manually, do not use voice commands. You should turn off the ambient sound feature as well.
Lay the earbuds in a cool place. You do not want to put them in their charging case while they are still hot. They will not charge while hot, and trying to charge them can cause damage.
Please do not use the device again until it has cooled down. If it stays hot for an extended period, you should reach out to Samsung’s customer service hotline.
2. Turn off the “Play tone when call ends” Feature.
Samsung programmed the Galaxy Buds to notify users that a call has ended with a beeping sound.
The “Play tone when call ends” is not a continuous beeping sound but creates a duplicate one. The double beeping is an error that programmers are currently working on fixing with an update.
Until that update is available, the best option to remove the double beeps is to turn off the feature.
Here’s how you can turn off the “Play tone when call ends” feature:
- Turn on the phone that you have connected to the earbuds.
- Navigate to the Phone app on the smartphone.
- Tap the three vertical dots in the corner to open up more options.
- Select Settings.
- Under the Settings menu, locate and select Call alerts and ringtone.
- Toggle the switch next to “Play tone when call ends” to off.
3. Restart Your iOS Devices.
If you struggle with beeping Galaxy Buds while using an iPhone, restart the iOS device to stop the beeps.
To restart any iPhone X 11 or later, follow these steps:
- Hold down either the volume button or the side button.
- When the power off slider appears, slide it downwards. The phone will take around 30 seconds to turn off fully.
- Press down the side button and hold it until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
If restarting your device does not help, open up the iPhone’s settings menu and toggle Bluetooth on and off. Resetting the actual Bluetooth connection has worked wonders for some users.
4. Check for Updates
Just like many other smart devices, your Galaxy earbuds receive updates. It’s important to stay on top of getting new updates to ensure that your Buds work well and are free of bugs.
To keep up-to-date on updates, download the Galaxy Buds Manager app to your computer. This app will tell you about your earbud’s power levels and let you make adjustments to the sound. It also gives you control over the ambient noise feature and voice commands.
You’ll want the Galaxy Wearable app to keep up with your Galaxy Buds on your smartphone. It will also alert you of available updates.
Follow these steps to update using the Galaxy Wearable app:
- Insert both earbuds, fully charged, into the charging case. Leave the lid open.
- Open the Galaxy Wearables app on your phone.
- Select the “About earbuds” option.
- Next, tap “Update earbuds software.”
- Select “Download and install.”
After the update, you can remove the earbuds and use them.
5. Recharge The Earbuds
If your earbuds are not hot to touch and you have not been using them in direct sunlight or warm temperatures, the issue is not overheating. They might have low power.
Place them inside their charging case and let them charge until the light turns green.
Ensure the charging case is either plugged in or well-charged before use.
You should never ignore any beeping sounds that come from your Galaxy Buds. Always take them out of your ears and let them sit someplace cool if you think they have overheated.
