    Bluetooth headset comes under "Other Devices" when connected and won't playback.


    Hello,


    My Bluetooth earbuds (Apple Airpods) used to work fine with my Windows 10 laptop. However when they are paired now, they show up under the "Other Devices" category in Bluetooth. The settings app show that they are connected, but the sound only comes through the speakers. I attempted to restart my Bluetooth drivers and my computer. I have tried updating the drivers, and setting the headphones as the playback device in the "Sound" section of Control Panel, but the problem still persists, and I don't know what to do at this point.


    Any solutions/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  4. Bluetooth headset comes under "Other Devices" when connected and won't playback.

    Bluetooth headsets paired but not connected, not in Playback Devices (Windows 10)

    I have this problem too, but only on one of two Windows 10 machines. My "good" machine is a Dell XPS13 laptop with internal Buletooth adapter. My "bad" machine is an HP Envy 15 laptop with an external ASUS USB-BT400 Bluetooth 4.0 adapter and ASUS's latest
    install CD, whose files seem dated about 2013.

    When I turn on Bluetooth in the "good" machine and enable pairing in my Plantronics Voyager Legacy bluetooth headset, under "Manage Bluetooth Devices" the device "PLT_Legend" shows up as Connected, there is a Device Manager > Bluetooth > PLT_Legend device,
    and there are three Device Manager > Audio inputs and outputs entries related to PLT_Legend.

    When I turn on Bluetooth in the "bad" machine and enable pairing in my Plantronics Voyager Legacy bluetooth headset, under "Manage Bluetooth Devices" the device "PLT_Legend" shows up as Paired, and there is a Device Manager > Bluetooth > PLT_Legend device,
    but there are no Device Manager > Audio inputs and outputs entries related to PLT_Legend.

    I tried steps 1 and 2 suggested above on my "bad"machine, but they didn't fix the problem. (In step 1 there was no Bluetooth headset driver to uninstall).

    Any other suggestions for me to try??
