Ever since I updated my OS to High Sierra 10.13.6, I've been experiencing very choppy connection between my Airpods and Macbook. If I'm sitting right in front of my computer, the sound seems to cut out randomly- sometimes when I move my head slightly or walk a few steps away. However, they work completely fine when I pair the Airpods with my iPhone.
I've seen similar posts about this issue on this forum and others from google searching, but most of them are about a year old and looked unresolved. I've tried all the tips I've seen posted- I've reset the bluetooth module and always switch the Sound Input to "External Microphone" instead of the airpods, but it didn't help fix the choppy quality.

My guess is there is interference so I opened About This Mac > System Report > Bluetooth > Devices (Paired, Configured, etc.) > Airpod

Is there a better tool to graph or detect if interference is to blame for bluetooth audio being choppy?
