Hey there!


We are here to assist! To begin working on this, we'd like to request that you please perform the troubleshooting steps below: 

  • Ensure the headset is powered on (check if the power LED is on)
  • If there appears to be no power, attempt to charge the headset for 2 hours.
  • If, after 2 hours of charging, the headset has no power, please do perform the troubleshooting steps below:
    • If you are using a facial interface accessory, please attempt to charge the headset again without the facial interface accessory. Some facial interfaces may block the proximity sensor which can impact the power of the headset.
    • Try charging from a different Source (another PC or different wall outlet).
    • See if the headset will load the boot screen. If yes, please complete the steps below:
      1. Hold the power and volume (-) button on the headset down simultaneously until the boot screen loads
      2. Exit and reboot the headset
      3. Reboot the headset if possible

If your device is still facing trouble after going over the steps above, please send us a PM.
