The Jabra Extreme2 wireless headset is about as reliable as it gets, but even still you can have occasional problems, and it can be difficult to figure out how to get things back to normal functionality.

If this has happened to you, and you’ve tried everything you can think of and still can’t figure out how to solve the problem (or even what the problem actually is), you might want to factory reset your Jabra Extreme2 – a quick and easy process that can solve a lot of problems you may be experiencing.

In this article I will provide very simple but complete step-by-step instructions for how to factory reset your Jabra Extreme 2 wireless headset.

First we’ll cover the basic steps for resetting an Extreme2 true wireless headset, then we’ll discuss some reasons why you might want to reset, and finally go over some basic Jabra Extreme2 troubleshooting steps in case you are still having problems.

How To Reset a Jabra Extreme2 Wireless Headset: Step by Step Instructions

Just follow these 2 basic steps to successfully reset your Jabra Extreme2 Bluetooth wireless headset.

Step 1

Turn your Jabra Extreme2 headset on – the power switch is located on the side of the headset, right next to the earpiece

Step 2

Press the Answer/End button and both the Volume Up (+) and Volume Down (-) buttons, and hold all three down for 8 seconds. When you release the buttons, the LED indicator light will flash purple, indicating the reset was successful

You will now need to re-connect your Jabra headset to your phone, tablet, PC or other Bluetooth device, and it is a very good idea to delete/forget your Extreme2 on the Bluetooth screen of that device before you repair them.

Why Reset a Jabra Wireless Headset?

Resetting a Jabra Extreme 2 Bluetooth wireless headset can solve a lot of problems you might be having, and so it is recommended to reset yours if:

  • You can’t get it to connect to your PC, phone, tablet or other device. You may also want to check out our guide on How To Pair Jabra Headphones
  • Your headset will pair with your device, but you keep losing the connection
  • You are having problems charging your headset, or even powering it on
  • There are problems with sound – stuttering, delays (like between sound and video), gaps or stoppages, any distortion or strange sounds, or no sound at all

A reset is highly recommended if you are having recurring problems that you can’t quite figure out how to fix, especially since it is so quick and easy to do.

Basic Troubleshooting of the Jabra Extreme2 Headset

If the factory reset of your Jabra Extreme2 headset seems to have worked, and you’re still having the same problems with power and/or charging, with connection or with sound, you might want to do a little basic troubleshooting.

  • Make sure your headset and device are turned on and sufficiently charged
  • Make sure the device’s Bluetooth is turned on, and that it is not locked or in Flight mode
  • Remember that your Extreme2 headset and your device have to be in range of each other – this can be several hundred feet, but physical obstructions and interference can significantly reduce the range
  • Make sure you are actually playing something – a phone call, music, a movie, an audiobook or any other audio
  • Check the volume controls on your headset, your device and any apps you are using, making sure they are all turned up at least a bit
  • Make sure your Jabra Extreme 2 headset is not actively paired to another device, or your device is not actively paired to other headset, speakers or anything else
  • Try un-pairing and then re-pairing your headset and device
  • Restart your PC or phone
