Solution for Windows 10 PC Bluetooth issues.
November 25, 2017
I purchased these headphones (Ausdom M06) for use mostly on a desktop computer, but also some light use on my laptop, Nexus 5X and Nintendo 3DS. This headset handles all of these devices well, is very comfortable/lightweight and sounds just as good as my other headsets with the advantage of being wireless.
I am overall pleased with the headphones, but there was one inconvenience which I'd like to help other users through, and that is pairing with a Windows 10 PC:
The headphones paired to my Windows PC just like any other device and it did it well, but there were some complications after the headphones paired. I noticed the sound quality was atrocious at first, so I opened up my 'Playback Devices' panel and found that there were multiple devices labeled Ausdom M06. The two devices listed were 'AUSDOM M06 Stereo' and 'AUSDOM M06 Hands-Free', the hands free option was my default device. I switched my default device to the stereo option and all of the sound issues went away and the headphones sounded amazing. Then, I tried testing the microphone to see what it would sound like if I used Skype or Discord with friends. The quality was terrible, so I wanted to adjust settings, so I headed to my 'Recording Devices'. The panel crashed, caused video that was playing in the background to drop to less than 1 frame per second and generally locked up my PC. I figured this was a random issue, but I spent the next hour restarting my machine and trying to troubleshoot the 'Recording Devices' panel crashing. At this point I just wanted to change the recording device to my webcam or desktop mic and just avoid the new headphones' mic altogether, but the panel just kept crashing.
I tried searching everything on this Amazon product page, Google, etc. Nothing steered me in the right direction, but I thought of a solution and it worked if you're okay with losing the mic functionality. You need to uninstall the hands-free device from your device manager. So, on Windows 10, right click your Windows icon, or press the Windows Key + X. A menu will pop up, click Device Manager. You need to find two devices, one under 'Bluetooth' and the other under 'Sound, Video and game controllers'. With both of these devices, you need to right click on them and select 'Disable Device'. Once I restarted my machine after doing this, the headphones work perfectly and the 'Recording Devices' panel no longer crashes.
Sorry for the wall of text, but I hope this helps!
