QC35II bluetooth popping (with Win10 tablet)
I am having trouble with my new QC 35 II headphones and my work-provided Windows 10 tablet. Specifically, when I connect to the tablet via Bluetooth the sound is fine for a few minutes but then begins to pop and stutter. This happens from any audio source (streaming, local, etc) and does not go away. The only way I can get it to correct itself is to either unpair the headset / re-pair it, or turn off the tablet's bluetooth and then turn it on again. Either of these fix the problem but it always comes back in a few minutes.
I have tried different pairs of (cheaper) bluetooth headphones and I do not have this issue. And if I use a wired connection the QC 35 II also have no problems. The QC 35 II do not have any playback problems on any of my other devices (Android phone, android tablet, iPod via bluetooth, etc) so it is something specific to the combination of this tablet and this type of headphone.
I have tried 3 pairs of QC 35 II and they all have the exact same issue, regardless of which firmware they were running. My options for updating the computer are limited, as it is a work computer which is pretty 'locked down'. I am wondering if anyone has had a similar problem, and if so, how did they resolve it?
