MacOS – Losing connection with wireless headset since restoring computer

headphonesmacos

I have a Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 connected to my Macbook Air which loses the connection to the headset every 5-15 minutes.

The headset is now several months old and I haven't had any problems until a few weeks back. Around the same time I restored my computer with first installing Yosemite and then a week later installing the El Capitan public beta (currently on Public Beta 3, 15A243d).

When the headset loses its connection I can still see the headset in the OS X speaker selector, since the USB dongle is connected. I can then reconnect the headset by unplugging and plugging back in the USB dongle.

Could El Capitan be the problem or could I have missed installing some software after restoring my computer?

After updating to Public Beta 5 the connection have been significantly better, only disconnecting 1 or 2 times per day

El Capitan is beta software, so there's going to be a lot of bugs, that's the idea of a public beta: let users find and report bugs before the software is released to the mainstream. So, unfortunately, you may have to wait until October when El Capitan comes out for a fix.
