    I got Beats Solo 3 headphones. Loving the battery life and quick pairing.

    One of the things that didn't "just work" for me is switching between devices. I often switch rapidly between my iPhone and my Macbook Pro. Ideally, I'd like to just click on the Volume and select my headphones on the new device.

    But I'm finding I have to open bluetooth and pick "Disconnect" on my mac, and bluetooth "connect" on my iPhone 7. Having to go into bluetooth to manually disconnect seems not ideal nor intended, but I can't get it to work any other way.

    I do have "allow handoff" turned on on my mac.

    Do other people with W1 headphones have the same issues switching? Is this intended? Is there something I'm supposed to be doing to make switching easier?

    Are you running Sierra? Your Mac has the same Apple ID?

    Very strange. Sierra might still have bugs.
