It does work for the standard earphones which are included when you bought an iPhone 4S so it's safe to assume that it works for other headsets as well, at least if their use of the audio jack is the same (which it should be, actually). PS: See this product listing on apple.com for an example.

This was answered on another thread (which sadly i can't locate right now). Setting the IgnoredDevices array to contain the MAC of the BT device and cycling BT off and on again worked well for me. sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist IgnoredDevices -array-add '<MAC ADDRESS>' The MAC address can be found in the ...

There are only two apps I know can do this, both by the same company, Rogue Amoeba. The cheaper & simpler one is SoundSource - $35. There is a more complex/expensive one which can also record any sound ...

None of the above mentioned worked for me, and then I tried this: Go to System Preferences > Network > From the side pane, Delete Bluetooth PAN using the minus sign (-) at the bottom.

I had the same problem after upgrading to Mac OSX Catalina with my Sennheiser HD 4.0 BT. I followed this guide and it worked for me. Delete /Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist Clear PRAM according to Apple's instructions by rebooting and holding down Command + Option + P + R for roughly 20 seconds until either the second startup sound plays or ...
