    Happy New Year, everyone!

    I am experiencing a mysterious issue with regards to Bluetooth. I recently got a pair of Nakamichi Bluetooth headphones, and I paired them easily with my phone as soon as I got them. In the same day I was able to pair it with my macbook air, but that evening the headphones were not discoverable by any of the macbooks in my house or by my PS3.

    I have consulted the manual for the headphones but it is completely useless and there is little documentation out there that I can find of a similar problem.

    I have spent many hours troubleshooting the connection between my phone and macbook air (mid 2012 running yosemite) and followed every piece of advice I could find on forums and from a very technically knowledgeable apple genius friend - including resetting the pram and smc, restarting, shutting down, messing with Wi-Fi, making a new user, deleting and re-adding a new bluetooth PAN connection, etc. to no avail. It is unlikely an issue with Yosemite because the headphones were not discoverable by an older macbook running 10.6.8.

    Anyway, I feel that the above is relevant because the problem seems to be narrowed to two sources. Either I have a defective headset, which I am skeptical about because it connects perfectly well with my phone, or my phone is somehow "hogging" the connection. Would it be possible for my phone to be interfering with the pairing process of the headphones?

    I have made sure to unpair the headphones and turn Bluetooth off on my phone before attempting to pair the headphones with anything else.

    This is a real mystery, but hopefully I can gain some insight into what is going on.
