Are you a user of Aftershokz headphones, frustrated by the beeping noise they produce? Well, I have been in your shoes, and the excruciating beeping sounds used to get on my nerves. There were beeping endless interruptions while enjoying my music, taking crucial phone calls, and video conferences. 

Worry no more! After a lot of experimentation, I have come up with easy-to-follow troubleshooting steps that will ease your journey toward a seamless audio experience.

Why is My Aftershokz Beeping? 

Aftershokz headphones may beep due to multiple reasons. Some models, with limited water-resistance ratings, can experience beeping caused by liquid seepage under the controls. This is typically due to buttons short-circuiting.

You can solve this by powering off your Aftershokz and letting them air dry in a ventilated space. 

While often it makes a slight beep while performing specific functions which you should look to get out of the suspicion,

For shorter beeps, here’s a breakdown of their corresponding functions:

  • Play/Pause: Single beep
  • Next/Previous Song: Single beep
  • End Call: Single beep
  • Increase/Decrease volume: Single beep
  • Answer call: Two beeps

Aftershokz Headphones Beeping 

Beep Sound during Pairing Mode

To enter pairing mode, turn off the headphones and hold the Volume+ button for 5-7 seconds. Avoid extended button presses or short circuits and ensure proper drying in a well-ventilated area.

Beeping due to Poor Bluetooth Connections

Bluetooth connections may result in beeping if the device moves out of range. Keep the device nearby during use as Bluetooth has limited range and is unsuitable for long distances.

Beeping caused by Moisture in the Charging Port

If moisture is present in the charging port, the headphones may beep continuously. Disconnect the charger immediately and let the headphones air dry for a while.

Aftershokz Headphones Beeping on Mute 

A bug in the 2022 Microsoft Teams update caused Shokz and other Bluetooth headphones to beep during mute. This issue is specific to Microsoft Teams and Shokz headphones.

Two solutions are available: 

1) Install the latest update for Teams or your video conferencing software to fix the bug. 

2) In Teams, unmute yourself or ask the host to do so, then manually mute your Shokz headphones by pressing the Volume+ and Volume- buttons simultaneously for two seconds. Audrey will confirm mute status with “Mute On.” Repeat the process to unmute and speak.

Aftershokz Beeping When Charging 

Your Aftershokz headphones may beep vigorously during charging due to liquid infiltration in the charging port, even with high water-resistance ratings. 

Moisture in the charging port triggers continuous beeping and a flashing red LED on Shokz headphones. Disconnect immediately, and let them dry in a well-ventilated area to avoid damage.

Shokz recommends a minimum drying time of 30 minutes before reinitiating the charging process to mitigate the risk of permanent damage.
