Using USB-C Dock with AirPods?

2018-11-27, 19:48 PM

Hello Everyone!


I am using an X1 Carbon 6th Gen connected to a Thinkpad USB-C Dock via single thunderbolt cable.


Via bluetooth, I connected my Apple Airpods to the X1 for use in conference calls. The attendees can hear me through the microphones on the airpods. But, I cannot hear any audio. I set all the sound output to go through the airpods. But, I never heard anything.


The only way I was able to re-enable a microphone-speaker combination was to disconnect the airpods from the X1.


With the X1 connected to the USB-C dock, how can I set the configuration to allow the mic and speakers on the Airpods to be used?


Thanks for any wisdoms!!!
