QC35II to Windows 10 -
Getting this product to work well on Windows 10 seems quite tricky. My bluetooth radio is the ASUS PCE-AC55BT B1 AC1200. I got the latest drivers for it from the manufacturer and Windows seems to agree that they are the latest drivers.
I've had a good experience with the product on both my iPhone and my iPad, so I am confident this is isolated to getting the Windows 10 connection sorted out properly.
For the initial connection to my PC, I was finding the product seemed to prefer to connect via 'Hands Free' and indeed, the Recording, or Input Device, seems to only function via the 'Hands Free' device configuration pathway. By disabling the 'Hands Free' Playback, or Output Device, I do have it defaulting correctly to the higher quality Stereo driver for playback. But since I don't see the 'Hands Free' option in the Recording section, I hear a constant white noise. If I disable the mic or it has a reason to smartly turn off, the white noise ceases. For some reason, it also seems like the white noise is impairing the noise cancelling feature on the headset, but that's not the point of the post.
I've read elsewhere that this driver is 'limited' and I agree. My question is, what's the process for troubleshooting to get the recording quality experience that's equivalent to the 'Stereo' driver one finds on the Playback side, assuming there is one? TIA.
