Bose product name Soundlink wireless headphones
What devices were you using that were affected and what version are they on (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S9 on Android 11, iPhone X on iOS14, etc.) Windows 10
Detailed description of the issue and steps to reproduce I am trying to pair the headphones with a Windows 10 Desktop. I have watched Soundlink pairing videos and used paid for software support. I noted that checking properties the Hommie brand bluetooth docket said "1997" My software support said it must be a problem with an outdated dongle. This is the dongle : Hommie USB 5.0 Bluetooth Dongle Adapter for PC, 20M Wireless Bluetooth. I live in London, England. Can anyone suggest a brand of dongle or make any other helpful suggestions? Thank you, David
