My x2 won’t turn on unless I plug it in to power first

    Hello Mark,

    Thank you for reaching out. I'll be happy to help you with this one.

    Please follow these recommendations if you haven't already done so:

    - Try a different power source/charger
    - Computers are the best and safest method, as is anything 1 AMP or less.
    - Car chargers produce a much greater power supply and should be avoided.
    - Over-charging the battery will quickly reduce the life of the headphones, so in addition to monitoring the power supply, limit the charge time to 2.5 hours,
    - To get the most out of your battery it is recommended to charge the buds when the low battery status is indicated.
    - Avoid charging your headphones after exposure to sweat.
    - Make sure charging port/cradle is clear of any debris.

    I’ve this response before. I’d appreciate a non copy-paste answer.

    I know all of the above

    It’s not a power issue. It doesn’t come on unless I plug it in, even when fully charged.

    Is it a firmware issue?

    Please treat your customers with some respect. If I don’t find a fix I’m definitely not using your products anymore.

    Hoping for the best

    I am having the exact same issue. After leaving them off for a few days they won't power on unless I attach them to a computer first. I only have to attach them until the status light comes on and then I can power them on normally. I have tried doing a factory reset but it didn't fix the issue.
