Good morning! This question a spinoff of the ongoing discussion of wireless headphones/earbuds.
I needed a not-too-expensive pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds for zooming, and I picked up a Skullcandy set that was recommended by Wirecutter. What I’ve found is that I get very short battery life – no more than 90 minutes or so, and the case doesn’t seem to recharge them. I sent the pair back for replacement when I was having even more trouble charging, but the battery life is still short.
I realized that I’m using these with my elderly 2010 iMac, and recalled that my computer is old enough that it can’t do Handoff because there’s some low-power Bluetooth capability that I don’t have. My question: is it possible that the trouble I’m having with earbud battery life is because my iMac lacks low-power Bluetooth and forces the earbuds to burn through battery more quickly? Or is something else going on?
