When using Airpods with iPhone only everything works great, you put it on and start listening.

When you start to switch between your Mac and iPhone, I have problems. Most of the time, if I open the Airpods and connect them to the Mac, I will have this problem where every few seconds there is a second interrupt on sound (it stops). You can't hear music like that.

  1. I'v tried to turn off Bluetooth on iPhone before connecting to the Mac, but this didn't work.

  2. I'v tried to restart the Mac - and sometimes this doesn't work either.

  3. I also ensured I have the latest firmware on the Airpots.

The experience is really not fun for a Mac user that switches between the Mac and an iPhone.

Does anyone have any other solutions or suggestions I can try to resolve this issue?

  • Please edit your question with the version of macOS that you are using. (The model of Mac could be useful too. iMac, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, etc.) This may assist those who may have an answer. Cheers! – bjbk May 11 '17 at 22:19
  • Hi, I suspect you first have to ask if there is any known issues related to specific macOS version before I start adding unrelevant info. Do you know that there is a specific problem on specific machine/OS ? I don't .. – Curnelious May 12 '17 at 8:52
  • In case you're wondering, this is not the normal or expected behavior. It works fine for me switching between listening on audio from iPhone and Mac. – jksoegaard May 12 '17 at 9:40
  • I have macOS 10.12 on macbook retina. Don't know what else to do. If the hardware works fine on the phone its probably not an hardware problem. – Curnelious May 12 '17 at 11:14
