    My Jaybird Vista earbuds no longer work AT ALL after the firmware update.  They were purchased Aug 22, 2019, which puts them a few days over the 30 day warranty.  I've checked the website, but none of the Jaybird support pages work. I've messaged them on Facebook, awaiting instructions for support...

    Same issue with mine.  After 20 minutes of the app saying rebooting please wait, the the ear buds never came back on and will no connect to any of my devices.  Removed them from the saved connected bluetooth items and still nothing.  Would be nice to have the support pages up and working on the website.

    Same thing happened to me also, purchased these yesterday and all worked well with the app and pairing but the app had an update. I did the update but it froze before finishing, I uninstalled app then reinstalled, now they won't pair on any device. Will be returning them tomorrow 🙄

    Just got my jaybird vista. Paired it to my phone and was working properly. Then downloaded the jaybird app. It said to update to a higher version. Then showed a message that it is rebooting my headphones. That message kept showing for long time.

    Now my vista is not visible to any bluetooth scan. Tried with my samsung phone, ipad, windows laptop. Did the soft reset, hard reset, individual headphone reset as per the troubleshooting on website. Charged it again for half hour. Still nothing. What next?

    For clarity, the information that we're collecting is going to help us isolate the issue and hopefully prevent this from happening again in the future. However, if your buds aren't working now, it's not likely that they're going to be able to be recovered, and they will likely require a replacement.

    We'd be stoked to help you out! Please give our support team a call at 1.866.244.3399 between 7am & 5pm MT (USA) Mon-Fri (Excluding Holidays) and we'll get this situation all squared away with you!

    Also had the same issue. The firmware install failed half way through and now the buds won't connect.
    Tried soft reset and factory reset. No luck.
    Hard reset didnt work at all.

    Same issue here. Literally just got the earbuds today. I first connected them with Bluetooth and they worked great. I tried downloading the app and updating them, but the update was just stuck and wouldn't complete "finishing up." After trying to close the app and restart the process, they refuse to connect at all. I've tried every method of restarting the buds, restarting my phone and reinstalling the app and nothing.
