Skullcandy Jib in-Ear Wired Earbuds


The biggest challenge with true wireless earbuds is ensuring your buds are properly connected and your device. There are times when you may unintentionally disconnect your buds and change their paired state; this can create pairing challenges and impact your ability to use either bud solo (Master Role Switch). Do not worry, as this is an easy fix!


  • To ensure ease of re-pairing, please unpair or forget your Jib™ True in your paired Bluetooth device list
  • Remove your Jib™ True earbuds from the charging case and Manually Power them OFF, by touching and holding the button on BOTH buds for 4 seconds
  • Once both buds have been powered OFF, touch and hold the button on each bud for 10 seconds to completely reset them (this will power cycle them on and off again).
  • Once both buds have gone through the power cycle, place the buds back in the case until both LEDs show red, and then pull them back out.
  • Both buds will automatically power ON and the LEDs will simultaneously flash BLUE while they sync to each other.
  • Once the buds have synced together, you will hear a tone to indicate the sync was successful and ONLY the LEFT bud will begin to flash RED/BLUE.
  • At this time, turn ON your device’s Bluetooth look for Jib™ True in your list of “Available Bluetooth” devices, and select it. For Android devices: “Click “+ Pair New Device” and select Jib™ True to pair your earbuds to your device.
  • IMPORTANT – Select the “Pair” and “Ok” prompts that will pop up on your screen.
  • Once successfully paired, a voice prompt will notify you are now “Connected”.


If you would like to use Jib™ True with only one earbud (Mono Mode), you’re in luck! The updated technology in Jib™ True allows you to use either the left OR the right bud in Mono Mode. Once paired correctly, you will be able to switch between buds at your discretion.

However, if you’re having any challenges utilizing the Master Role Switching capabilities, you may follow these simple steps to ensure ease of use when pairing and switching between Mono and Stereo Modes.


  • Please note – BOTH the LEFT and RIGHT bud for Jib™ True can be used in Mono Mode, this is because the new tech allows Master Role Switching capabilities.
  • For the optimal Mono Mode functionality, first Power ON and pair your buds to your device normally or as described in our troubleshooting section. This will ensure the seamless transition between Stereo and Mono modes.
  • Once both Jib™ True buds are paired together, simply place the RIGHT or LEFT bud back into the case; whichever you prefer! The remaining bud will stay paired and function with both phone calls and music.
  • You will maintain bud functionality, but remember you will lose some of the media control functionality such as “Volume +/-“, and “Track <</>>”, depending on which bu was placed in the case when in Mono Mode. The RIGHT bud will always control Volume Up and Track Forward, and the LEFT bud will always control Volume Down and TrackBack.
  • If you would like to change back to Stereo Mode while in Mono Mode, simply pull the other bud from the case at any time and you will hear a tone, or the music will seamlessly begin to stream to indicate that you have automatically entered back into Stereo Mode.
  • Please Note – If you’re having any trouble switching between the LEFT and RIGHT buds in Mono Mode, you will need to follow the reset instructions explained above clear BOTH earbuds, and re-pair to enter back into the correct paired state to allow the Master Role Switching functionality.


Not seeing the RED LED indicator on the bud when you’ve placed your JIB TRUE back in the case?


  • Wait momentarily as the buds connect, occasionally it takes a few seconds to begin charging
  • Check to see if any debris is blocking the charging pins in the case, or on the bud
  • Check to see if the removable in-ear gels are placed correctly on the acoustic port, this could be keeping the buds from sitting correctly in the case
  • This same issue could also be interfering with your case lid when closing, if you’re having a hard time closing the lid correctly, this is an indicator that buds are not set correctly or the gels are interfering.
  • When charging the device, we recommend using a cable, charger, or outlet with a power output that does not exceed 18 watts (5 Volts/3.6amps).

If you’ve checked everything above and are still experiencing issues and/or if the indicator light remains dark and does not come on at all, please visit our warranty page where you can file a claim to receive a replacement product. All Skullcandy products have a 1-year warranty.

When on a call or listening to my content, will I hear the audio in one or both earbuds?

  • Jib™ True has stereo calling and streaming so you’ll always hear the caller or your content in both ears.
  • Although, you do have the option to use only one earbud (left or right side) if you prefer Mono Mode in some situations.
