Experiencing Bluetooth problems on your Mac?

Experiencing Bluetooth problems on your Mac?

Having trouble with bluetooth disconnecting or acting intermittent/erratic with stereo bluetooth earbuds? 

Reset your Mac’s Bluetooth Module

Let's reset your Mac’s Bluetooth module. Just a heads up - you'll have to re-sync all of your Bluetooth accessories as this will reset your sync history. 

To reset your Mac’s Bluetooth module, you’ll need to complete the following steps:

Step 1: Hold down the Shift (⇧) key and the Option key and click on the Bluetooth menu in your Menu Bar on your Mac.

(You need to hold both Shift and Option keys - just holding the Option key only gives you certain details but not the debug option.)

(At least that's how it is on my MacOS Catalina 10.15.5)

Step 2: Go to Debug > Remove all devices and click on it to disconnect all paired Bluetooth devices.

Step 3: Now open the same menu once again and click on Debug > Reset the Bluetooth module to reset your Mac’s Bluetooth module.

Step 4: After resetting your Mac’s Bluetooth module, you can now attempt to re-pair all of your Bluetooth accessories. Hopefully everything works as expected and you're back to listening to crystal clear bluetooth at only a slightly lagged process when working with live editing! (Videos may show slight lag but most things these days offer a buffer to make up for the slight delay. Audio should be great!)


Hopefully this was helpful!
