QC35II: Keep losing MacBook Pro connection, and sound cutouts
Headphones running latest firmware (which I'm beginning to wonder might be the problem). MBP running fully updated Mojave (10.14.5). Here's the deal: every so often (once a month, perhaps 6 weeks, or so) I have to clear the device list in order for it to pair with my laptop (cans have NEVER had any problems pairing with my iPad (second generation iPad Pro running iOS 13). It'll be fine for a fortnight, then I'll have to manually connect it (via menubar BT dropdown), then it'll only connect like that for about a week, then I'll get "Sarah's MBP lost" almost immediately after I've connected them, then I'll have to reset them and try a couple more times (they're usually stable on the third attempt). It'll be at this point that the sound will start cutting out (now, I shall have to add at this point that I can't say categorically that it's the headphones, it could be my **bleep**ty internet connection, or it could be DI). , then they won't connect at all, not even if I try to repair them, until I've cleared the device list TWICE.
I've even switched my iPad off to see if they'd connect to the MBP - nope. It's got to the point now that I can predict when they're going to start balking - this time it's been exactly a week since they started connecting intermittently, it's like the latest firmware (if it is something to do with the latest firmware) has installed some kind of "**bleep** up countdown". When these finally cark it, that's it, I'm sorry but my next cans won't be Bose, they'll be from a company that recognises that, for some people a decent set of cans isn't a luxury - it's a necessity (I'm autistic, I use them on a daily basis; if they die, that's it, you want them back before you'll consider replacing them, and then I'll have nothing to use. There are three things I need in a set of cans: ANC, wireless and decent battery life (oh and I do love the fact I can replace the cushions, too; I'm not sure how recyclable they are, but at least I'm not having to replace the entire set simply because they've torn)).
I'm getting a tad fed up with this rigmarole; as I've stated, they have no issues connecting to my iPad but, at the moment, I want to use them with my laptop.
