Bose QuietComfort 35 Bluetooth Headphones Connected in Bluetooth Settings, Disconnected in Playback Devices
My new Bose headphones show as Connected in Windows 10 Bluetooth Settings:
But they show as Disconnected in the Sound Playback Devices:
My Bluetooth Adapter is from Realtek:
And has the latest driver:
The headphones show up under both Devices and Unspecified:
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Windows 10.
I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling and updating various Bluetooth drivers, both Realtek and Microsoft.
I've tried many combinations of connecting, restarting, and powering up and down both the headphones and PC.
I've tried having only one of the two devices installed and/or connected.
I've tried changing which services are enabled: the "Audio Sink" service controls whether "Bluetooth A2DP Stere Audio" shows up in the playback device list while the "Handsfree Telephony" service controls whether "Bluetooth Handsfree Audio" shows up in the list.
Nothing I have done changes the devices from showing up in the playback devices list as "Disconnected".
The headphones work great with my Android phone.
Any ideas on how I can get the headphones to show up as "Connected" in the playback devices list?
I have spent hours troubleshooting this with no luck.
