Change Bluetooth connections with a single click.

Overview

Tooth Fairy connect AirPods (or other Bluetooth headphones) to your Mac with a single click or keypress.

AirPods are great, but they don’t work quite as smoothly with Macs as they do iPhones. You can’t tell at a glance whether audio will play from the AirPods or your Mac’s built-in speaker, you have to dig into a Bluetooth submenu to connect, and then you have to go back to the menu to see when the AirPods are ready for use. ToothFairy streamlines this: just click an icon in the menu bar (or press a hotkey) to switch to the AirPods, and the icon always shows whether they’re connected.

  • Works with AirPods, as well as any Bluetooth device that you can connect to your Mac: headphones, speakers, headsets, game pad controllers, keyboards, mice, etc. (HomePod is not supported, as it is not a Bluetooth audio device.)
  • Click the hollow AirPods icon in the menu bar to switch to AirPods. It fills in to show they are connected and also displays a battery indicator.
  • Supports multiple Bluetooth audio devices; you can choose a different icon and hotkey for each.
  • Get the best audio quality. macOS will normally use the SCO codec if it thinks you’re going to use the microphone. ToothFairy can ensure that it uses the higher quality AAC codec when you only care about audio output: listening to music or video or playing a game.
  • Run a shell script when the AirPods are connected or disconnected.

What's new in ToothFairy

Version 2.6:
  • Added icons for AirPods Pro, Beats X, Microsoft Surface Earbuds, and an alternate icon for a pair of regular AirPods that are positioned symmetrically rather than offset.
  • Adjusted the way battery levels map to gradations in the menu bar gauge.
  • Added a button to the About tab to open the ToothFairy manual.
  • Worked around a macOS bug that could prevent launching the app after using AirPlay.
  • Fixed a regression where the battery level wasn’t shown if it was exactly 100%.
  • Modernized the localizations.
  • Reduced the size of the app.

This is a great help, if you want to switch quickly to a Bluetooth headset on the Mac. I use it with BoseComfort 35 headset.

Don't know if it's because of the developer or MacUpdate, but this is NOT free as it was initially advertised under the MacUpdate menubar icon. The dishonesty immediately stops me from buying this or any software product that initially advertises as free. I suppose it's to get one to take notice.
