View Full Discussion I would like to share my experience with Bluetooth and these headphones after 2 days of use. I am using an iPad Pro 2020 and a MacBook Pro 2018, both have Bluetooth 5.0.
First off, when listening to music, I haven’t noticed any major issues and it works great. However this is not a review and I want to focus on specific issues I am noticing. I don’t have any other experience with wireless headphones or high end headphones, so I don’t know if this expected in the headset or if this is a defect. Let me know if you experience this too.
Side note: You cannot play sound from multiple devices at the same time, even though both are connected. This is probably a Bluetooth limitation and there might not be anything that can do this. The good thing is that the multiple connections makes it easy move from one device to another, you just need to stop playing sound from one to get sound from the other.
- Popping noises in between content. After watching a video or something and there is a ~30 second or so pause before I start watching another video, the headphones make a pop noise. It sounds like it is shutting off the amp or something. It is not a huge deal but I don’t like it. Also, when content starts to play after a ~30s pause, the amp (I’m guessing) needs to spin up instantly and it does a good job but you may notice a tiny blip when sound begins to play.
- Quiet static in left ear while using microphone over Bluetooth. I think other people have reported this but I’d like to add that I only experience this when the microphone is used. When I turn off the microphone something changes and the noise goes away. If you hear this noise all the time, you might want to try see if you can disable the mic.
the first one is pretty common with Bluetooth headphones, although some of them will mute the output for the duration of the pop. personally that second option bugs me more: like, if i get a notification on my phone, i'd only hear the second half of the notification noise because of the microcontroller muting the output while it turns on again. but i can understand why people wouldn't like to hear the pop noise and might prefer brief muting.
