I just bought the headphones a couple of months ago and now I have already an issue. I can't switch them on. I press the button, but nothing happens. I tried to charge them, but it also didn't help. Any suggestions? I don't see any reset button...

Asked by: Vlado
Press and hold power button, then Plug-in USB charging cable at an alternate power source. If red LED is on, the J56BT has been reset successfully. If you're unable to reset it, please try another USB charging cable in attempt to find out exactly what's causing the issue. If you are still experiencing issues, please contact your local JBL Customer Service for technical support and information regarding your warranty options, thanks you!
