OK, so far I am pretty thrilled with the Phonak Audeo B-Direct aids I’m in trial with. While it’s TRUE that the aids only stream to ONE ear when using my Samsung Galaxy 6S, after a loooooong call with Anthem, my mom, other quick calls made, I now realize: I can live with this!
Now on Cloud 9 and feeling invincible, I promptly turned to my Macbook Pro, opened the Bluetooth app, and placed my aids near the laptop. In about a minute, the laptop displayed “L-Phonak connected”. So I tried playing audio: music from our home server, CNN news clips. And … no surprise, the aids do not stream in any way, shape or form with my Macbook Pro! I tried rebooting my Mac, rebooting the aids, unpairing and re-connecting the aids multiple times. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
I return to my aud-guy on Tuesday, and will see if this is a question for Phonak Tec Support, but wondered if anyone out here has grappled with and resolved the same issue? How is it that my Macbook Pro clearly displays “L-Phonak connected” but refuses to stream audio?
