Samsung Earbuds Have No Sound (How to Fix)

People around the world enjoy Samsung technology, including their earbuds. When those earbuds stop producing sound, there are a few things you can try to get it working again.

Samsung earbuds might stop making sound due to various issues like improperly adjusted audio balance settings, misconfigured settings in the Sound Assistant app, or water damage from exposure to sweat or moisture. Each scenario uniquely affects the audio output and functionality of the earbuds, impacting the listening experience.

Audio Balance

Samsung is well known for its unique settings, some of which are very convenient and can make a difference in our enjoyment of music or other sounds.

The problem is, that some of those customizable audio balance settings can get adjusted improperly, even causing the sound to turn off completely.

One way to fix this is to check the Samsung Wearables app and navigate to the settings. Check for any audio balance settings and make sure they are on default. You can always adjust them again later.

Sound Assistant

There may be a sound assistant app included with your Samsung device. It allows you to control audio settings and adjust them to your liking.

There may be times, however, when the sound from the earbuds can be affected negatively if those settings are not set properly. You can check the settings by turning on the sound assistant app and going to the default configuration. This should restore the sound in your earbuds.

Water Damage

Since we often use earbuds when we are working out or playing sports, they are designed to handle a certain amount of sweat and water.

Of course, unless they are completely waterproof, we would not want to dunk them underwater completely. Keep in mind that there is a difference between sweat or water-resistant and waterproof.

Even a significant amount of sweat, however, can cause the audio to stop working properly. If you think this may be a problem, use a soft cloth or microfiber towel to wipe down the earbuds gently. Set them aside to dry for a few hours and they should be working again.

Earbuds are an incredible piece of technology. They may be small, but they have a big impact on our lives and our enjoyment of music or anything else we listen to. What can be done when the earbuds are no longer producing sound?

When you are not getting any sound out of your earbuds, the first thing to check is the power. Many earbuds, especially those that utilize Bluetooth can be turned on and off with the push of a button. Make sure that the earbuds are turned on.

Of course, this is really only a superficial fix and there are many other options to consider that could cause your earbuds to stop producing sound.

Fixes For Samsung Earbuds With No Sound

Typically, when you don’t have sound coming from your earbuds, it can be traced to a simple solution. Here are 3 top reasons why your earbuds are not producing sound.

Physical Damage

Physical wear and tear, like damaged wiring or internal components, can interrupt the audio signal. This may occur due to repeated bending, pulling, or other physical stresses on the earbuds. Checking for visible wear or wire exposure can help identify this issue.

Blockage or Obstruction

Accumulation of debris, earwax, or dust in the earbud, especially on the speaker mesh, can block sound output. Regular cleaning and ensuring that the earbuds are stored in a clean environment help in minimizing this problem.

Connection or Compatibility Issues

Problems with connecting the earbuds to the audio device, either through wired or wireless means, can result in no sound. This might involve issues like a poor Bluetooth connection, outdated software, or incompatibility with the device. Checking and updating the software, re-pairing, and testing with different devices can be useful steps to troubleshoot this issue.

For wired earbuds, make sure that the plug is fully seated into the device. If necessary, unplug it and plug it in again fully.

Bluetooth earbuds may need to be repaired with the device on occasion. After turning off the earbud or putting it back into its case, remove it and put the device on discovery mode. After reconnecting, make sure that you stay within range (30 feet).

It’s one thing to know the issue that is causing your earbuds not to produce sound. It is quite another to understand how to fix the problem. After all, we can’t enjoy using them until the problem is repaired.

Here are 3 different things you can do to get your earbuds back up and running properly again.

Addressing Physical Damage

If the earbuds have visible physical damage, like exposed wires or evident wear, a temporary fix might involve carefully using electrical tape to secure the damaged area. For a more permanent solution, consider professional repair or ultimately replacing the earbuds if they are beyond repair.

Cleaning the Earbuds

If debris or earwax is blocking the speaker mesh, use a small, gentle brush (like a clean toothbrush) to delicately remove any visible blockages. Alternatively, use a dry, soft cloth to clean around the earbuds and ensure that the speaker mesh is clear of obstructions to allow sound to pass through freely.

Troubleshooting Connection Issues

For connectivity problems, ensure your device’s software is updated and try disconnecting and reconnecting the earbuds. If using Bluetooth, unpair the earbuds, restart the device, and then re-pair them. For wired earbuds, ensure that the jack is fully inserted into the audio device and test them with another device to rule out issues with the original audio source.
