Bluetooth Headphones Compatibility

• May 11, 2019 - 19:49

I have an issue with Musescore and Bluetooth headphones. My headphones will work on other devices and other applications/the internet but as soon as I enter Musescore, the sound will play from my laptop's speakers. What should I do?

Struggled for a second but I got it.
My device preferences were already set to 'Speakers/Headphones (Realtek(R)' but it wasn't working. I tried clicking it anyways and applying but it didn't work. I tried clicking 'Restart Audio and MIDI Devices' but that didn't do anything.
Eventually selecting a different audio option, applying that, then re-selecting 'Speakers/Headphones' and applying that worked.
Hope this helps!

I think I have the solution. Some headsets have both a mode with only output and a mode with microphone. For whatever reason your PC automatically recognizes your audio device as a microphone which isn't compatible with MuseScore. Just exit MuseScore, set your headsets as only audio device and launch MuseScore again. Now MuseScore automatically will set everything well. Hope it helps.

Thank you 'mbintore' very much for this comment. I have been chasing this problem for some weeks now but only today found your comment about head sets with microphones, having read loads of other possible fixes including reinstalling the software which tended to work for a while but not always, presumably because of the way the bluetooth device connected! Now that I am choosing the correct setting for my bluetooth output device 'without microphone' my bluetooth devices are working fine.
