I’ve a 2018 Mac mini with absolutely updated software program. In December I bought some AirPods Professional headphones and love them…principally. The primary draw back is that they’re very unreliable with my Mac and troubleshooting has confirmed difficult.
First, and least regarding, is it typically takes somewhat little bit of time to pair when it isn’t already paired. 10, 15, 20 seconds might move earlier than it pairs. However subsequent come the true issues. It is not unusual for the headphones to randomly disconnect. Additionally, once I’m on calls in Webex or Microsoft Groups, folks will typically inform me my audio high quality is poor however I can hear them simply positive. If I’ve Webex name my cellphone, even utilizing my Airpods, the audio is ok. This occurs sufficient that I am unable to belief it to work reliably for speaking on my Mac.
I am utilizing three different Bluetooth (or 2.4Ghz) units. I’ve a Magic Keyboard, Magic Trackpad, and a Logitech mouse which makes use of a kind of USB dongles (I do not assume that is Bluetooth). Wi-fi is setup at 5Ghz in order that’s not a priority. I’ve heard USB three can intervene with 2.4Ghz indicators. I am utilizing 2x 4k Dell screens that join utilizing HDMI->USB-C adapters to the again of the mini. The keyboard and trackpad are dependable so I am not 100% satisfied that is the foundation trigger, nor do I understand how to repair that downside whether it is.
I’ve used the Bluetooth Explorer you may obtain from Apple and located the AirPods RSSI does transfer greater than the keyboard or trackpad. It will be within the -40 vary (superb!) and dip down into the -60 vary, or worse. I simply do not know if that is anticipated habits with AirPods.
Apple Help had me reset the AirPods which helped for a bit however the high quality remains to be an issue.
Can somebody recommend troubleshooting steps I can take?
