This is an old question, but this does still come up from time to time.
For portable use you want a low impedance headphone. On the one you quoted the 16 or 32 ohm impedance is the one you want. Lower impedance will be a little more bassy, 32 Ohm might be a smidge better quality but a little bit quieter. The high impedance headphones are for amplified studio ...
This is how it’s supposed to work because when you disconnect a Bluetooth sound device, it no longer exists. When that happens everything goes back to the default of Internal Speakers
I just tried it. I had everything set to my headset and when I disconnected it, it no longer showed up as an output device.
There are some apps that remember by output settings ...
Your MBA is still under warranty. Either have the store you purchased it from or Apple themselves address the situation. I would not offer up the fact that you prodded around the headphone jack with a toothpick.
If your headphone jack cannot go in, there are only three reasons why this will occur:
The port is obstructed
The headphone jack is the wrong size
There's a manufacturing defect of the MacBook port
You can't remove dust or dirt if there's no dust or dirt to remove. Also, you don't want to use a tooth pick as that will push objects in further and can even ...
For Mac OS, alternatively, you can install BackgroundMusic which also allows you to control each Audio Application's output volume (which Windows 10 and Linux can do but MacOS cannot do on its own):
After that, in PyAudio or SoundDevice, you can see additional devices:
BackgroundMusic devices are dual input-output devices, i.e., they can be used as either ...
You can get a USB DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) and connect any speaker or audio device to your Mac. I personally use one to connect my iMac to a Bose Wave Radio and in this answer, the user connects a set of the vintage Apple ball speakers to a newer Mac.
Yes. Apple hardware and macOS support USB audio out of the box. Plug in amplified or non-amplified devices that fit your room and sound preference and enjoy. USB is digital out so may be better than analog audio out connectors or Bluetooth or AirPlay sounds.
Search for USB Computer Speakers online. If you are totally lost, start with a brand like Logitech ...
I was experiencing the same issue with AirPods 1 on macOS Big Sur. Enabling the AirPods microphone (so the headphones starts using the lower latency codec) fixed it. It looks like Google Meet doesn't like adjusting the audio latency, resulting in the garbled sound.
I was having this issue with my 2019 MacBook Pro running Movaje (10.14.6) with a bluetooth Apple Magic keyboard and JLab Studio bluetooth headphones encoded with SBC. I resolved it by switching my headphones to the Monoprice BHS-839 headphones.
I think think this solution works because the new headphones you aptX
I'd recommend MonitorControl:
MonitorControl allows you to control your external monitor brightness,
contrast or volume directly from a menulet or with keyboard native
MonitorControl is available on GitHub and as a Homebrew Cask:
brew cask install monitorcontrol
A YouTube review is available here.
Tested on an "LG 27UK850-W 27" 4K UHD IPS&...
I could resolve this issue finally with removing additional audio plugins in the folder /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins.
I don’t know which of the following plugins caused the problem:
When connecting headsets and using the microphone macOS will switch to using SCO.
SCO is good for calls as it provides lower latency.
But it's also terrible for audio-quality as it has much lower bandwidth!
