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 Sport – 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 reset Jabra Elite Sport wireless earphones.
First we’ll cover the basic steps for resetting Elite Sport true wireless earbuds, then we’ll discuss some reasons why you might want to reset, and finally go over some basic Jabra Elite Sport troubleshooting steps in case you are still having problems.
How To Reset Jabra Elite Sport Wireless Earphones: Step by Step Instructions
Just follow these 2 basic steps to successfully reset your Jabra Elite Sport Bluetooth wireless headphones.
Step 1: Turn your Elite Sport wireless headphones on
They should turn on when you take them out of the case, but if not you can press and hold the Multifunction button (on the right earbud) and the Volume Down (-) button (on the left earbud) until the LED indicator light flashes
Step 2: On the right earbud, press both the Multi-function button and the Sport button (the top and bottom buttons) and hold them down for 5 seconds
The LED indicator light will flash blue, indicating the factory reset was successful
You will now need to re-connect your Jabra earphones to your phone, tablet, PC or other Bluetooth device, and it is a very good idea to delete/forget your Elite Sport on the Bluetooth screen of that device before you re-pair them. You may also have to re-enter some of your personalized settings on your Jabra+ mobile app.

- Make sure your Jabra Elite Sport earphones are not actively paired to another device, or your device is not actively paired to other headphones, speakers or anything else
- Try un-pairing and then re-pairing your headphones and device
- Restart your PC or phone
