I have a Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 connected to my Macbook Air which loses the connection to the headset every 5-15 minutes.

The headset is now several months old and I haven't had any problems until a few weeks back. Around the same time I restored my computer with first installing Yosemite and then a week later installing the El Capitan public beta (currently on Public Beta 3, 15A243d).

When the headset loses its connection I can still see the headset in the OS X speaker selector, since the USB dongle is connected. I can then reconnect the headset by unplugging and plugging back in the USB dongle.

Could El Capitan be the problem or could I have missed installing some software after restoring my computer?

Edit 2015-08-24

After updating to Public Beta 5 the connection have been significantly better, only disconnecting 1 or 2 times per day

  • Did you experience the issue while it was running on Yosemite as well, or only after you upgraded to El Capitan?

  • I'm not 100% sure but I think so, yes Aug 17, 2015 at 15:23
  • Are you using them under bootcamp? The link you provided shows them to only be compatible with Windows. Is it possible that Apple had a driver for them that was not ported over to El Cap?

  • @AMR No, I'm using them in OS X Aug 17, 2015 at 16:20
  • This is a stretch, but it your MBA has a USB 3 port and Apple has made changes to their driver to support USB 3.1 and USB C, that might be interfering with the connectivity of your device. On Logitech's forums, a support specialist responded to using the Headset on Mac that it needed to be connected via USB 2... Maybe Apple messed up something in backwards compatibility.

El Capitan is beta software, so there's going to be a lot of bugs, that's the idea of a public beta: let users find and report bugs before the software is released to the mainstream. So, unfortunately, you may have to wait until October when El Capitan comes out for a fix.


You're not alone. It's actually something wrong with the public beta of El Capitan.
