GabrielaGarcia has a very good answer already, but I'll expand a bit on it.
If you still got the receipt on those headphones, I'd consider returning them. They come from an era where not everybody was using Wi-Fi at home and everything using a radio went to 2.4 GHz because it's an ISM band. Which was a world of fun with older microwave ovens... Anyway, Wi-...
First you will need a third party keyboard-remapping application called Karabiner (formerly KeyRemap4MacBook). The application is a bit user unfriendly but in theory you only need to do this once. Also it currently doesn't work on MacOS Sierra...so keep that in mind.
Here we go...
Found a solution!
I was in the same boat and extensively researched various Bluetooth devices for a TRRS-compatible solution. Finally I found this unit, the Plantronics Pulsar 260 http://www.amazon.com/Plantronics-UPP260-Pulsar-260-Stereo/dp/B000N8P4R8
While it doesn't say TRRS anywhere, if you look at the way it works, it utilizes a 2.5mm earbud/inline ...
You asked how to debug this on the computer side, but first I'd recommend troubleshooting this with another device. Do you have a smartphone? If so, try connecting your smartphone and the headphones, and using either the built-in media player or another app such as Pandora or Google Music to test it out.
If it behaves correctly on the phone, then I would ...
Sure, you can buy a Type-C hub and connect your peripherals there.
You will need adapters for your keyboard/mouse (Type-A to Type-C) as well or you buy a hub that already have Type-A connectors.
If your laptop have Type-A USB ports you can also buy a Type-A hub (most laptops already have 2 ports atleast).
USB hubs exists for this exact purpose: to ...
There's a chance that your wireless headphones use a lot more RF power than they really need.
Try covering some of the base station with aluminium foil - that'll block part of the signal it emits. Chances are that the headphones will still have a decent range, while the WiFi signal won't suffer as much.
In the 'classic' Sound control panel application, make sure your device is set as Headphones rather than Headset.
If I use my AKG Y50BT's in Headset mode, I sound like a robot and the incoming call quality if also poor. I disabled 'Headset' mode.
If entering 0000 as PIN did not work, try the old classical interface for pairing:
Right-click the traybar Bluetooth Devices notification area icon and choose
Join a Personal Area Network.
An Explorer interface will open to
Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers.
Click Add a Bluetooth device
Press the pairing button on the device
When asked ...
I would first start with looking at your frequency use. If you have a android phone there are many free WiFi viewing apps (I run 4 different ones because each looks at different things). Get near your headphone base and see the frequency band it is running on. I would expect that it defaults to 1, 6, or 11. I would then guess that your WiFi is on the ...
Have you tried turning off Wi-Fi on your laptops while testing the headset? Wi-Fi channels 1-14 (1-11 only in North America) and Bluetooth can both use 2.4GHz frequencies, and there could be interference (unless your Wi-Fi uses 5GHz frequencies, channels 36 and up).
The Logitech software comes with pre-configured options to map G buttons to turn on/off the Advanced Equalizer, as well as the surround sound, leaving a pretty flat sound profile that's very close to the Communications profile in the Advanced Equalizer field.
If you want to get fancy, it also comes pre-configured with options to map increasing mic volume to ...
I struggled with this same issue until today that I revisited the topic. This is how I solved it:
First, I created a script using AutoHotKey that opens a window that only exists (does nothing but float and have an Exit button) and compiled the script into an exe file.
Then, I created 2 profiles with the settings I want. The Default profile with the ...
I myself have a SHB7000 too.
You say that you have blue lights blinking.
These lights should be alternating between blue and white instead.
Hold the poweron button longer to make the device visible. ;)
As all attempts have failed to find some software that steals events such as "next track",
a hardware problem is maybe a possible explanation.
Since you have tried turning off and on the headset and even re-pairing it without success,
it seems that the source of the problem is not the headset.
This leaves the connectors as a possibility.
Some people have ...
You must be sure how your equip is connected to the computer. If you have a WLAN accesspoint and both your computer and mic/mouse are connected to it, a standard wireless lan repeater should extend the range. Be sure it is configured correctly! You can test this with an other device like a smartphone or laptop.
If your equipment is connected directly via ...
I have Windows 7 laptops and two Sony Bluetooth audio devices: MRD-NWBT10 and SBH50. I have managed to make both work automatically such that when the Bluetooth device is OFF the audio comes from the laptop speakers, and when the Bluetooth device in ON the sound comes from the Bluetooth device (so far).
Two things I had to play with:
Turn your ...
It seemed to be a bug in the audio driver. I recently updated it and the problem is solved, although when I put some distance I get lag even if I go back near the computer, so I just turn it off then on and the problem is solved once more.
A possible solution for your problem is:
set A2DP bitpool size in ~/.asoundrc file
the maximum size depends on the device you want to use.
You can take a look at http://vlsd.blogspot.nl/2013/11/bluetooth-headphones-and-arch-linux.html.
Hope it helps.
