Too Many Devices Paired Bugs

When there are too many devices paired to your headphones, what happens is that as you power them on, they immediately get connected with the nearest paired device.

It happens with me as I have my Mobile and 2 Laptops placed close to each other and all of them are paired with the Headphones, so as I turn on my Headphones, it gets connected to my other laptop which in that case, I don’t want to.

To fix this problem, you need to reset the pairing history of your Sennheiser Headphones. To do that, hold the power button for seven seconds straight and the history will be cleared. You won’t have any paired devices available now.

Connected but No Sound

If you are a MacOS or Linux user, you might face this problem. There are some cases where when you have your laptop paired with the headphone and as you turn both devices on, they get connected with each other.

When you try to play some audio, you won’t hear anything. Now this is because of MacOS and Linux distros and superior security. They won’t allow you to start the audio transfer as you don’t restart the Bluetooth.
