Premium Bluetooth Headphones Cutting Out

ThePickMan

5 months ago

I've bought the Sennheiser HD 4.40BT wireless headphones thinking it would be an improvement over my crappy $20 wired headphones I bought as a stopgap measure.

I was wrong.

After pairing the headphones to my system, the audio quality dropped dramatically with frequent cutouts and gargled interference. I tried connecting the headphones by the headphone jack to see if it would give better quality audio but that turns off the headphones for some reason and they won't turn back on until I disconnect.

I'm very disappointed. Every time I try to buy a premium headset it ends up being a pain in the *** and no better than a ****** $20 set I can get at Staples.

Here are my specs if that'll help.

I disabled Handsfree Telephony and made the headphones my default device but I'm still getting garbled and outright cutout audio.
