QC35 iis mic and stereo on PC (WIN 10)
So I'm trying to get a wireless bluetooth connection established with my PC running Windows 10. I am specifically attempting to use both mic and stereo output simultaneously on my QC35s.
My current situation is that in my PC bluetooth menu, I am able to see two devices for my QC35 iis. My understanding is that one of these is for hands free (includes mic and lower quality audio) and the other is for stereo output. I've read other forum posts discussing this issue, and the general conclusion was that there is no way to get stereo output from the headphones while simultaneously using the microphone, as these features use different bluetooth channels etc, etc.
The problem that I have with this conclusion is that it's not true. While using my QC35s with my IPhone for a call, I am fully able to simultaneously watch and listen to other content using the stereo output of the headphones. To me, this indicates that the problem isn't with the QC35 hardware, but instead with how my PC is recieving the headphone's signal.
Is anyone aware of a solution for this problem (I'd assume it would look like finding a way to have windows 10 use the handsfree channel of the headphones as the microphone input only, while using the stereo channel as a sound output only).
Another more unrelated problem I've been having is with sound output lag while using the stereo bluetooth connection with my PC. Is this a problem others are experiencing? Can it be fixed with a different bluetooth adapter, or is it a problem with the QC35 hardware?
It's worth noting that I'm currently using a cheapo bluetooth adapter I got for between 5$ and 10$ on amazon.
