Audio playing from my Macbook Pro (Late 2016 15" w/ Touch Bar, OS v10.14.6) to my true wireless earbuds (Jabra Elite 75t) is often choppy / stuttering. The problem seems to be with the Macbook because audio playing from my iPhone 8 Plus to the Jabra earbuds never stutters. I can't upgrade from Mojave to Catalina because I use some legacy software.
Things I've tried:
- Bluetooth menu -> Debug - Reset the bluetooth module
- Reset PRAM
- Disconnect wifi
- Disconnect iPhone <-> Jabra connection
- Change Sound settings for Input to Internal Microphone rather than Jabra
- Set AirDrop to be discoverable by no one
- Jump between wifi 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz and change channels
- Jabra firmware upgrade
- Play audio from different apps (Spotify, VLC, Youtube on Chrome, etc.)
- Try these commands (in particular the ones under EDIT 3 and EDIT 4) for improving the power/bandwidth for the bluetooth module.
- Try the "Force AptX" option here, that made my sound much worse.
When I open Console.app and filter for faults or errors plus the term "bluetooth," all I see is the error message "CoreBluetooth isn't advertising for this client type" from process "wirelessproxd"; not sure what that's about, maybe something to do with AirDrop.
What else should I try?
