Battery Draining Issue in Bluetooth Headphones? Try These Smart Hacks

By Cleer Audio

Your Bluetooth headset may be your most valuable asset. But there is one more frustrating thing that we all know. You'll also hear the sound of your headphones running low on battery when you're trying to blast music. Bluetooth headset batteries tend to get weaker with age. But before you lose all hope, we’re here to tell you that there are ways to extend the life of your Bluetooth headphones.

How To Increase the Battery Life of Bluetooth Headphones

One of the reasons why you are experiencing battery drain problems may be because of the many music apps you may be playing. Streaming apps use a lot of data and screen time, and your battery can drain quickly.

All you have to do is make a few seemingly small changes so you don't end up in an awkward situation. Both to save your phone battery and your headphones. Here are some tips for fixing a fast-draining battery:

1. When listening to your favorite songs or albums, remember to download them instead of streaming them from your app of choice. Many applications allow you to save files locally. That way, every time you put on your wireless headphones, you don't access it with Wi-Fi or mobile data, and you reduce energy consumption.

2. Avoid placing your wireless headphones in direct sunlight or extreme cold for longer battery life.

3. With daily use, remember to put the headphones back in the charging case when not in use.

4. If for some reason you don't use your headphones for a long time, that doesn't mean you shouldn't charge them. In fact, it is recommended that you charge it every three months even if you don't use it.

5. Once your device reaches 100% charge, try to remove it quickly. An overcharged battery loses its performance more quickly than a fully charged battery.

6. Turn off the Bluetooth functionality whenever your headphones are not being used. It's also a great way to save your phone battery as well.

What Impacts Wireless Headphones Battery Life?

Your volume is too loud

Listening to your favorite music at high volume can be fun, but it's dangerous and unhealthy for your ears or your headphone battery. Use your headphones at moderate volume and they will play for a long time.

We recommend a volume level between 60% and 70%. Also, it is not acceptable to keep the volume level of your headphones too high. While this may extend the life of your headphones, you may lose audio playback quality and restrict your ears to hear sound.

Active noise cancellation is turned on

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) is a feature of headphones that helps reduce background noise by using a noise-cancelling system.

Most of the latest headphones have this feature, and it is the most powerful part of the headphones. Your headphones will consume more power than usual, and your battery will drain faster when you turn on ANC.

Your headphones are always on

Nothing breaks a pair of headphones faster than keeping it on all the time. Like all other gadgets, the life of your headphones comes to an end as you use them.

As your headphones age, one of the signs you'll notice is a decrease in battery life. So, if your headphone battery is draining quickly, make sure you don't keep it on all the time.

Improper charging

Another reason why your headphone battery drains quickly is improper charging. If your headset is new, it may not come with a full battery charger. Charge the battery before making use of it.

The same goes for older headphones. Don't expect them to serve you long if you don't pay them well.

Overcharging the battery

When your battery is overcharged, the acidic material in the battery heats up and dries out. If it is used repeatedly, the battery may swell, discharge, or melt, resulting in a decline in battery performance.

The only solution is to replace the headset battery, but you can prevent battery damage by unplugging your headset after charging.

Connecting to multiple devices

Some wireless headphones can connect to multiple devices using Bluetooth Multipoint. Multipoint Bluetooth headsets can easily disconnect if connected to multiple devices. For example, when you connect headphones to two smartphones, both smartphones will send audio signals to the speaker.

The bottom line

Of course, there will be problems with Bluetooth headphones and their batteries, especially over an extended period of use, but with the above tips, you can help ensure maximum battery life.

It goes without saying that investing in something like Cleer ENDURO 100 Bluetooth headphones with long battery life will help make things a bit easier, don’t you think?
