Whenever I connect my bluetooth earbuds to my Mac, there is a noticeable audio lag when watching videos. How do I solve this. I use my earbuds with my Android phone and they work perfectly.

  • My understanding is Apple do this deliberately, on all Macs, on all bluetooth devices, so that when you stream video to an external device, the inherent video delay matches the audio delay. It's stupid. Apple and bluetooth is a marriage made in hell.
