Soundsport Free Left Bud Not working on MAC
My left BUD refused to work on Mojave 10.14.3 for standard audio including Youtube. Worse, when ai reconnected to my Samsung Galaxy S7, the left ear will no longer work after having been connected to the MAC, even for media. I already know the left-ear won't work for phone calls which is a huge oversight considering that these would be great buds for open workspaces but without the left ear phone audio, all you hear is the guy next to you babbling into you ear.
I am most likely going to return these for these problems, but I'm hoping to get the answer to the questions below because I've been a big BOSE fan but this is probably the breaking point.
1 - During the phone call, does the right-bud microphone being opened prevent use of the puppet signal to the left ear? In other words, is it a hardware limitation that cripples left-ear use on phone dalls?
2 - How can I stop the left ear from disappearing just because it took a phone dall or conneced to a MAC? The only fix now is to put them back in the stupid box, delete the entries in BT settings, and repair. That is NOT ACCEPTABLE.
3 - Are there firmware fixes available for either of these or am I hosed?
They are good buds but the BT controller seems critically flawed. If there are no software fixes coming, I will return and they will sadly be the last BOSE product I ever buy.
