When using Bluetooth Audio such as headphones I get choppy audio when listening to music. I'm using an Apple Broadcom BCM94360CD and also a MX Master 3 connected and also have handoff enabled just for a bit of background. Is there anyway I can improve this?

I don't have any audio bluetooth patches currently used so any advice would be great.

Some people set their router to broadcast only 5GHz and disable the 2.4 GHz band. That might help prevent the interference with BT function. Give it a try and see if it matters for your BT function.

@kylerphillip,

If you are using a floor mounted tower style case and have the WiFi & BT antenna's directly mounted to the rear I/O of the system then the case will partially block the signal and the PC electronics can interfere with it.

I experienced choppy BT audio myself which I resolved by remoting the antennas, see this post for more info :-


Cheers
Jay
