Speeds up headphones searching time and ear detection (where supported). Switch this setting on only when no one else around you is using the same headphone model as yours.

Fast search is affected by the AirPods search radius parameter. The data of the headphones within this search radius will be used for the functions: charge level, ear detection.

If there are two or more the same headphone model in the search radius, the accuracy of the data may be reduced.

Low audio latency⚓︎

Reduces the delay between frequent switching on (play) and off (pause) of the sound. Useful when working in Premiere Pro or Audition. The feature can increase battery consumption because it prevents the headphones from going into standby mode.

Some Bluetooth drivers have already fixed this problem. If you do not experience a difference, disable this feature

Auto play⚓︎

Send the «Play» command after connecting the headphones. If there are no open players Windows will ignore the command.

Auto pause⚓︎

Pause playback after disconnecting headphones. Disconnecting headphones using MagicPods reduces the delay before pausing. (By any method: button, tray menu or hotkey)

Show battery percentage will not work if HandsFree is disabled.

The Handsfree profile is used for voice communication and has poor microphone and sound quality. All Bluetooth headphones use this profile.
