QC35 ambient sound amplified when connected to Mac Mojave 10.14

When the Bose QC35II connects to a MAC laptop you will hear an annoying HISSS in the background unless you manually change the INPUT sound device back to MAC's mic.

 

Read This: https://community.bose.com/t5/Headphones-Archive/QC35-ambient-sound-amplified-when-connected-to-MacB...

 

Why is this happening in the first place? Why it's not the case with windows laptops?

 

Should I REALLY do it manually each time I connect to my MacBook? Even after each time answering a phone call? and when the headphone connects back to the laptop, I have to manually change the input again!! 10 times a day?!

 

Update: Have ever seen a Mac crashed? You can easily experience it with your BOSE QC35 II connected and you change the Sound input device a few times a day to escape from noise on your premium headphones... 

 

I am on the latest firmware and OS on both devices.

 

It's a very serious issue for me. I bought this headphone to be able to connect to two devices at the same time without manual steps. But now...

 

Appreciate your feedback.

I've found a workaround.

 

Go to Utility>Sound Midi

 

Here you need to create an Aggregate Device and select your headphone for OUTPUT and your laptop's internal MIC as INPUT.

 

The next time when you connect the headphone, your MAC will recognize your Headphone as OUTPUT and that Aggregate Device as INPUT! - Problem solved guys!!
