The camera supports the Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0 standard, while the AirPods support Bluetooth 5.0. Perhaps your other speakers use an older, unsupported standard?

Also, the AirPods have a powerful radio and can be located up to 100 meters from a device, while typical Bluetooth speakers are limited to 10 meters.

Let's see, my Bose 700 has:

  • Bluetooth range: Up to 10 m (33 ft)
  • Bluetooth version: 5.0 (including all headphone profiles)
  • Codec SBC and AAC

So they do have BT5, but only 10m.

I should note that it's not that the Insta360 fails to connect to my headphones, but that the Insta360 specifically is ONLY airpod supported, the menu doesn't say "connect to headset" but specifically "connect to airpods".

So I guess this either mean that they decided the camera needs the "powerful 100m radio". Or I guess more likely there's other reasons (Apple paying them for exclusive support).

So unfortunate!
