On OSX Sierra, I can no longer select a Bluetooth Audio device for sound output. I can see the Bluetooth head set is connected and I can select momentarily under Sound Output (see attached screenshot). However, within a few seconds, the Bluetooth device de-selects itself and reverts back to Internal Speakers.
A few notes:
- I have tried a few different Bluetooth headsets and none pair with my Mac. They pair with my iPhone and other Macs so I can rule out an issue with the headphones
- I have tried deleting Bluetooth plists and re-pairing. That did not work.
- I have tried deleting plists related to audio with no luck
- yes, I've rebooted my computer.
This strikes me as an issue with core audio but I'm not sure how to address this without re-installing the entire OS
