  1. Bluetooth Headset showing up as Other Devices and not in Audio


    Hi there!


    So i have recently connected my Sony WH-XB900N Headset to my laptop and it connected as a headphone, meaning that the mic that I was still using was my laptop mic.


    I was tinkering around with the settings by updating drivers and deleting the headset and trying to connect it again. But when I tried reconnecting, it didn't show up as a headset, but at other devices.


    Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks! Bluetooth Headset showing up as Other Devices and not in Audio 2194231c-46c4-4f89-ac80-5e71548af2e5?upload=true.jpg

  2. Windows 10 cant see Bluetooth headset in Realtek aduio device list . Headset connects to Bluetooth can hear the "bleeps" no sound.

    I have an Acer Aspire E1-571 running Windows 10.

    I have BlueSolie Bluetooth dongle (5.4.277.0)

    Realtek audio card (1.0.98.50629)

    KSARCADE Bluetooth headset.

    The problem is that the headset connects to Bluetooth I hear the "bleeps" and the 'properties' show a good to strong signal bar but the device dose not show up the Realtek audio card device list, ergo the audio card cannot establish a channel to the Bluetooth
    headset , so no sound.

    Steps taken.

    1) Created a restore point.

    2)Downloaded the Realtek W10 Bluetooth driver.

    3)Enabled and started the Bluetooth services (BthHSSrv Hands free, bthserv Support service)

    4)Uninstalled and reinstalled the Hi def audio drivers.

    5)Using the Action centre 'connect' has no effect. The action centre dose not show 'Bluetooth'

    6) Contacted MS support could not fix it.

    Any practical suggestions gratefully received.

    Bluetooth Headset will pair & connect, but wont turn into an Audio Device @ Windows 10

    As you can see in the picture, Windows thinks that everything is "working correctly"

    And I definitly know that they did work a while ago, when I last worked with them, but now I can't get them to show up as Audio Device anymore.

    I have tried everything, from reinstalling the drivers (official and non-offical ones), running the Windows Troubleshooter, replugging the dongle to another usb hub, enable/disable devices and restarting pc after every of those steps, but nothing helped.

    Other Bluetooth Devices such as my Controllers do work on this Dongle/PC and the Headset will connect to other Devices (tested with my mobile and laptop), but i just cant get this Headset to work with this Dongle on this PC.

    Bluetooth headset doesn't get detected as audio device automatically

    Win10 Pro x64 1809
    Headset: August EP650 (Bluetooth v 4.2)
    Portable TV, Portable Freeview Digital TV, Handheld TV, Bluetooth Speakers, Bluetooth Headphones, Bluetooth Receiver, Bluetooth DAB Radio, Clock Radio, TV Aerial

    Bluetooth dongle: MPOW MPBH079AB (Bluetooth v 4.0)

    I've got the headphones paired via Bluetooth but when clicking on the sound icon in systray there's no option to quick switch.

    To get audio through the headset I have to go to Devices and Printers, right-click the headset icon, select Control, then I get the following window:

    I then have to choose Connect.

    Only then does the option to switch audio appear in the sound pop-up

    I'm not sure what is required to get the headphones detected automatically - is it a limitation of the headset or my Bluetooth dongle?
