BeatsX blinking red light when plugged in, cannot turn on


I have a pair of BeatsX that are having this problem

A little backstory, I had these for about a year and a half, and one day, all of the sudden, they stopped turning on.

I would plug them and see no response at all, BUT, the beats updater would show them connected, 100% battery, and my Windows machine would make a sound when I plugged them in.

Since I’m in South America, with no Apple Stores, and this is way past their warranty days, I opened it up, and I bought a new battery from AliExpress, soldered it, and now, when I plug it, it just blinks a red light all the time, and nothing else.

If I unplug them, nothing, cannot turn on either, and the beats updater (or Windows) doesn’t see them.

I tried the power button + center button and power button + volume down while plugged in, and after 10 seconds it stops blinking, if I release the buttons, it goes back to blinking again.

If I try it while they are unplugged, nothing happens.

Anyone seen anything like this?

I can open it up and do mess with it again, if someone can point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance!

Sadly, these headphones are not really repairable - time for a new set.

Hi, thanks for the response

Do you mean this issue specifically is not repairable? If so, have you seen the same behavior?

Or do you mean the headphones are not repairable, because I have seen them getting repaired (not this issue but others)


I tried replacing two batteries - neither one worked afterwards and I wasn't able to secure the parts well enough to really use.

The design just doesn't offer any way to fix, just like Apples AirPods.
