Description

Adding your wireless earbuds via BlueTooth will setup two devices in Windows when you pair them to Windows ( whether AirPods, Sony, Sennheiser, Jabra Elite, whatever... etc) for each of those profiles: Sadly I never found a free solution (if you have one, please do share), but happened to stumble across this as I have some Jabra business /office focused headsets/speakerphones.. so had this adapter laying around: The freedom to roam You need a stable wireless connection if you want to be able to walk and talk. Without a Bluetooth adapter, your device's connection might get patchy over a relatively short distance. Jabra Link 380 is discreet and flexible, giving you maximum mobility and freedom of up to 30m / 100ft wireless range. Enjoy multiple device pairing and a design that doesn't add extra load to your laptop. If you try this and it works for you - please share your successes. If it doesn't, please also share your device details so people are warned (if you're using something other than AIrPods). As Always - YMMV! Probably the best solution for over-all quality is to use an EXTERNAL microphone and use THAT as your input device. That way, you can disable the microphones on the Airpods as per instructions below, and they will default to great Stereo sound no matter what. It won't force the Airpods to use the HSP/HFP profiles for bluetooth that reduce the audio quality.

EDIT - The Jabra Link 380 adapter is available this month - and is Bluetooth 5.0! It is likely a better match to Airpods for this reason with respect to connectivity and latency specifically (it still supports the same HFP versions, so call/audio quality would be comparable). Windows is a bit weird with BlueTooth headsets. BT on Windows trips up switching between AD2P for that nice stereo sound and the hands-free profile for the microphone as you may have noticed. There could be a different driver/config monkeying solution to this, but I am not aware of it from my searching. This is a bit of a work-around and doesn't help you if you want to use it as a true headset in things like games for chat, or via Skype/WebEx/etc. That said, it'll ensure that your headphones show up as only one device, with quality stereo sound... so you don't accidentally select the hands-free audio device which produces terrible quality sound.If you're tried ( and failed) to use your AirPods in Windows 10 especially with the microphones... this post is for you. It can be done. Headset - Jonnny's AirPods HANDS FREE AUDIO" ( uses Hands Free or Headset Profile / HFP/HSP - mono, low bandwidth, low quality sound which allows the microphone to work) There isn't much said about whether this will offer stereo sound over the Hands-Free Profile, but the sample rate will offer much clearer audio. This will take awhile to get implemented into devices unfortunately.

It is unlike a regular Bluetooth adapter in that it shows up as ONE sound card/device and doesn't take over native BlueTooth in Windows to do this. It also provides exceptional range of ~100ft. You won't need to switch between devices ( Stereo versus Hands-Free-Audio), but can instead just select the one device. It will auto-detect when the microphone is in use to switch to the hands-free profile when needed. When the microphone isn't in use, it will default to Stereo high quality sound. It provides a more seamless experience in terms of profile-switching. While it still only does mono sound on the hands-free profile, I experience less static/pops versus using a standard Bluetooth dongle. It supports HFP 1.6 (16KHz - Wideband speech / HD Voice). Here are AirPods and Plantronics GO 2 ear buds connected to the 370 Link adapter through Jabra Direct ( their software on the PC to manage the dongle): Better connection, better UC performance For a headset to be UC-certified, most UC vendors require superior connectivity, which is guaranteed by a Bluetooth adapter. Jabra Link 380 is available in two variants, one for Microsoft Teams-certified devices and one for UC-certified devices. So whatever platform you're using, you can be sure you're getting the gold standard in connectivity. Announced at CES 2020, Qualcomm introduced APTX Voice. With aptX Voice, devices will get 32kHz samples audio with a flat 16kHz frequency response quality as part of the Bluetooth Handsfree Profile.

Looking to pair your Jabra product?

Maximum control, minimum effort Technology is better when it's easy to use. Jabra Link 380 is plug-and-play – no need to install separate software drivers. It's easy to manage through Jabra Direct, so you can push over-the-air software updates to all users in an instant, and there's even a handy LED light which tells you the status of the headset, whatever computer or software you're using.
