Hi … first time post and I’m hoping someone can help…
I love my Sony WH-1000XM3 bluetooth headphones … BUT … they do not allow you to connect to multiple devices at the same time. This is a known - and frankly ridiculous - flaw in such a premium product.
You can pair to multiple sources but pushing content from, say, my iPhone means I have to disconnect them from my iPad/Mac first if that was the last device to stream to them. This is extremely frustrating and a known limitation.
Imagine being in one part of the house, settling down to listen to a podcast and find that you have to get up and walk into another room to log on to your Mac just to disconnect the bluetooth device binding. Crazy,.
I have considered how to manage this and am drawing a blank.
I usually have my iPhone with me, so the challenge really relates to triggering and auto-disconnecting them from the iPad and Mac.
On the iPad, I considered triggering an automation that would disconnect them. Two issues:
- there is no suitable automation trigger (sleep? idle for x minutes? even ‘lock’ might work); and
- I cant find an action to disconnect a bluetooth device… even in IpadOS 14 with Toolbox Pro installed
I am more hopeful on the Mac where I can use Keyboard Maestro to script something on sleep perhaps but that would only solve half the problem.
Does anyone have any ideas?
