Wyze Headphones, switch devices

Hello.

I received my Wyze Headphones and I’m supper happy with it.

Is there a way to switch between both bluetooth devices?

I have another bluetooth headphone that switches to the loudest device but I thought that the Wyze Headphones would have a way to switch manually.

For some reason if you have your Bluetooth tv transmitter and your cell phone connected at the same time you can have poor Audio quality. Also the first device paired takes priority in this case. As was mentioned in the first post being able to switch between Bluetooth feeds would be great. since my Bluetooth tv transmitter has to be on all the time I can not use the cell phone to stream to the headphones.

This! I have my headphones paired with my laptop and phone. When ever I power on my headphones it automatically connects to both, but I only get audio from which ever of those connected first. If it’s not the one that I wanted then I have to go to the other device and manually disconnect the headphones. I was hoping to just hear the audio from both at the same time, but maybe that isn’t working because my laptop bluetooth only supports 4.2. Either way, if the headphones can connect to both at the same time, but can only play audio through one or the other it seems to make sense that you would have a way to switch sources.

Normally both are right next to me, but yesterday my laptop was in the living room and I had just settled into bed and wanted to listen to a video on my headphones. I turned them on, and it connected to both devices, but my laptop was the only audio source I could hear. I had to get up and go to the livingroom and disconnect the headphone from my laptop so I could hear audio from my phone.

I also want to use my headphones with my TV sometimes, but Android TV doesn’t have a “disconnect” option (or at least mine doesn’t) only “unpair”. So if the TV is the audio source that the headphones connect to, then the only way to get audio working from my laptop or phone is the unpair the device. Even if I could disconnect it’s still several menu options deep and cumbersome to navigate to.

EDIT: So i’ve just noticed that when my laptop and phone are connected, that both can play audio, just not at the same time. If audio is currently playing on one device the other device simply will not be heard.

For example: If my phone is playing music, then i’ll never hear audio from my laptop until I stop it. If I make Windows make a sound and press play on music on my phone while that sound it playing, my phone will play the music, but I can’t hear it. After the Windows sound stops, if I stop the music and start it again I can hear it. So basically any source that starts while another is already playing will not be heard.

I have to test it more but mine is like to switch to device that is louder. For example: if it’s connected to my phone and TV and I’m listening music on my phone, if I start to raise the volume on my TV, at some point it changes automatically to my TV.

When I turn mine on, I hear like 2 different sounds probably because it connect to my TV and phone. If I go to my phone and play some sound it likes put my phone as a main device, the same happens if I start watching something on my TV (nVidia Shield).

I think if someone calls me it automatically switches to my phone so I can answer the call.

But I still thinks that a manual switch between devices is a better solution, like being able to choose what to do when I use the touch surface of the phone.

I have a similar setup; connected to both my laptop and phone. My headphones will automatically switch from the laptop to the phone, but it seems to take about 10 seconds for them to switch. It’s a bit annoying when listening to audio on the laptop, and I try to take a phone call.

I noticed in the latest firmware update there was an update to device switching. is there a way to manually switch or is it just whichever device started playing first?

I’m having the same issue, even on the latest firmware 2.1.111. The only workaround I’ve found if I’m not near both devices is to clear the Bluetooth device list from the headphones. To do this, you need to press and hold the Power/Bluetooth button for 8 seconds until it says “Bluetooth device list cleared”.

I’d rather Wyze give the option to disable Dual Bluetooth Device Connection ability. With my Aftershokz I can enable and disable this feature.

I’ve opened a support case for this issue on December 18th and still waiting for a resolution, I was asked to submit Dev Logs and did. Anyone have any luck resolving this beyond clearing the device list each time?
