Fix for QC35 hissing in earcups when using Bluetooth (on Ubuntu)

I really love these headphones and I can not live without them - but I have not had a great experience with them on Linux until now.


This is a problem that Ive been having on my Ubuntu laptops - but I'm sure it exists in different flavors on other OSes. Whenever I connected, or a sound is about to play, a background hiss started playing first, sometimes with a few clicks and pops.

Then I discovered this setting:




Things are now back to normal and as invisible as ever. I can seamlessly use them on Linux now! Couldn't be happier.

I'm still on a really old firmware. I've been too afraid to update after everything I read... and... if something isn't brokent, what's there to fix? Am I missing out on anything?
