I have a (new) pair of Aukey EP-B40 bluetooth earbuds. Until recently (today!) they were working just fine. Now, when I try to connect to them, they seem to connect briefly, but:

(a) they never show up in the list of audio devices (when option-clicking the speaker icon on the menubar), and (b) they disconnect after a second or two.

I have tried:

  • Rebooting the computer
  • Deleting and re-pairing the headphones
  • Resetting the bluetooth module as suggested in this answer

The headphones are fully charged. Nothing seems to have any effect.

Has anyone else seen this sort of behavior before?

  • Have you tried connecting them to the computer with the charger cord? – Sam Feb 25 at 3:06
