    I have tried endlessly to get my Pioneer SE-MS7BT to connect to my Node 2i. The headphones are Bluetooth 3.0, is this compatible with the Node 2? They connect to 3 different iPhones with no problem. In the BluOS app when attempting to pair, it shows what appears to be a MAC address when trying to connect instead of the SE-MS7BT that appears when connecting to an iPhone. I submitted a help ticket about a week ago via the support page but still haven't had a response. One of the main reasons I purchased the Node was so I could use BT headphones.

    I have a pair of Bose qc 35 II that worked for about a month and now cannot be found by my 2i.

    They continue to work perfectly with my phone.

    Tried resetting to default

    Disconnected from power for an hour and retried - nothing

    I have a pair of APTx compatible Sony MDR-1000x headphones.  Not only does my Node 2i refuse to pair with them, when I attempt it the Node 2i drops off of Wi-Fi after several seconds and does not come back online.  My only recourse is to unplug it and plug it back in which brings it back online.  This has happened several times.  Very repeatable.  Any help out there?  Thanks.

    I too was annoyed to see my Beoplay headphones labelled with what appears to be a Mac address, instead of the friendly name that other applications show.

    Another issue for me is that if I want to use wireless headphones with a system that has grouped multi-room speakers, apparently I must first ungroup them before the headphone option shows up.  This is cumbersome.

    We have made some changes to Bluetooth Headphones with last week's release of BluOS 3.4.3 dealing. Please select Help, About and confirm this is the version of firmware you are on. If not, Please select Help, Check for Upgrades.

    After upgrading to 3.4.3 on my iMac, BluOS Controller will no longer open. It starts, but then just displays the splash screen with 24-BIT HI-RES MUSIC. IN EVERY ROOM WIRELESSLY then just stays there and does not progress any further. It work in IOS on my iPhone 7 and I can now pair my Pioneer BT headphones.

     

    The iMac is running OSX 10.13.6

    Please uninstall the App by dragging it to the Trash and emptying the trash. please download a new version from www.bluesound.com/downloads and install that version. 

    This should resolve the issue. If problems persist, please e-mail us at support@bluesound.com

    After many attempts, I finally got my B&O H7 phones to pair with the Node 2i.

    The procedure that worked? 

    First initiate pairing on the headphone side, *before* opening the Bluesound desktop application.

    Then open the application and click on the 3 dots that bring up the Bluetooth Headphone pairing procedure in the application.

    The application will show at least 1 (possibly multiple) MAC addresses (not the friendly name of the headphones).

    Guess which one represents your headphones, or click on all of them, and you might get lucky.
