Wireless Bluetooth switch needed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi All,

 

I'm looking for some advice for a bluetooth audio splitter/router.

 

Due to Covid I'm now working from home and have multiple meeting a day via Microsoft Teams. I have a set of Sony WH-CH510 wireless Bluetooth headphone that I use on my calls paired via Bluetooth to my work laptop. What I want to know, is their a BT switch/router available that I can wirelessly pair all my other devices (note 10+, pc, firestick) and not have to individually pair the head set each time?

 

So much like a wireless hub, the devices are picked up in to the BT receiver and I can pair my headset and listen. Using the switch to select which channel I need at the time should I get a call on Teams (work pc) midway through listening to something on Spotify (phone)?

 

I can see there are wired options available but nothing appears clear that they can do it wireless.

 

Any help would be great

 

Ian

I don't think you can solve this the way you want to. You can set Teams to prefer a specific device, but you can't have a device pair with two hosts unless the device explicitly has that feature. The best option for Teams is to just use a wired USB headset, and the second best option is a headset that has two switches in a base station (eg wired and wireless, or wired and bluetooth) The office I do work at has a bunch of DECT based Polycom Savi devices and they have three inputs one for a phone handset, one for USB to the PC and one for bluetooth (intended for mobiles.) 

 

Otherwise you're going to need to find a "base station" that you can pair the Sony headset to and have two non-BT outputs (eg TRRS jacks, but those are only standard to laptops, or a pair of TRS jacks for mic and headset)

Yeah I thought as much. 

 

Shame really as it would be super useful to be able to switch over from one feed to another with a small dock in front of my screens to the input I need at that moment.
