  1. Extreme random scratchy feedback while using Airpods with Windows 10 laptop


    An update or two ago my airpods suddenly get extremely scratchy at random times. It was never an issue for a long time, but recently i'll be listening to music and it just starts distorting and scratching really bad. Doesn't happen with my phone, its only my work laptop running Windows 10.

    I've tried reinstalling bluetooth drivers, I've checked for any updates to drivers, etc etc. And nothing seems to help. Also any google search if people just suggesting the same things so again no help..

    Does ANYONE have ANY kind of advice or anything I could try to fix this? Is it just Apple and Microsoft not playing nice? I don't have any other devices outputting a signal near me that would cause this. As well as my laptop connects to a 5 GHz signal so its not crossing the 2.4 GHz I've heard can cause this issue? Read that somewhere but unsure if its true. Either way it shouldn't be an issue since my work wifi is 5GHz.

    If it makes any difference I use Spotify for the music itself.

  3. Airpod sound extremely low on pc

    I have a pair of apple airpods that i love and have been using for a while now. Suddenly, yesterday, i noticed i wasn't hearing anything out of them on my pc. I discovered that i can just barely hear sound when i turn the volume all the way up to 100. It
    seems to be a windows issue seeing as how my airpods work with my iphone perfectly fine. I've looked up many different solutions and none of them have worked. I tried going into my Device Manager and doing a roll back on my airpods driver update but it was
    grayed out and it wouldn't let me. It gives me 2 options of airpod audio, i can either choose Airpods stereo, which is extremely quiet, or Airpods Hands-free which sounds extremely crackly and terrible quality but volume is good. I've tried everything simple
    as far as disconnecting and reconnecting my airpods, removing them and adding them again, but i'm having no luck. I'm getting really annoyed as i listen to podcasts throughout most of my free periods every day at school and now i'm stuck in silence. Please
    if anyone knows any fixes try to help a brother out.

      Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
