    Unhappy Bluetooth audio stuttering since KitKat

    I have a Droid RAZR MAXX HD and my music is stuttering something fierce (every two or three seconds) since the KitKat upgrade. I've tried unpairing and repairing, rebooting the phone, rebooting the car stereo, turning bluetooth on and off on both the source and target ... nothing seems to fix this.

    I've been having the same problem. It's really annoying!

    If I turn off wi-fi it plays flawlessly. Sure would be nice to be able to keep wifi on, but this does help.

    Same problem here, and I'm still using 4.4.2. We use Bluetooth at work to show off some of the portable wireless speaker systems, and running Pandora or even my stock music app skips like a beeotch even though other folks right next to me can stream it fine. I am also the only one with an S5 on that side of the store. I thought maybe it had to do with the high quality audio option, but nothing I change in the settings wants to make it work. It just straightens out on certain days when it wants to.

    Boom! From My S5

    My brother has the same problem with a Razr Maxx or HD (don't recall what he has) , he says it appears to be a CPU utilization issue. My Moto X stutters some when it's buffering Google Music initially but once it's buffered it works fine.

    Here's a thought: when I run AnTuTu Benchmark on power saving mode, CPU is greatly reduced. Maybe we should try turning off power saving mode for the duration of the stream?

    Had the same problem with bluetooth skipping, so decided to see what was new that might be the culprit. Turns out that in Kit-Kat, there is a developer option called "Bluetooth HCI snoop log" that allows the device to capture all. Bluetooth HCL packets and save them to a file. Disabling this option made my Bluetooth skipping problems disappear completely.

    If you don't already have Developer options enable, go to the "About device" setting, and rapidly tap the section for build number seven times until you see a message that you have enabled developer options. You can then go to the developer options section and disable the Bluetooth HCL snoop log.

    I have a nexus 4 running cm11, but snoop log was already disabled and still got the stuttering. Enabling and disabling doesn't seem to help, and I can't think of anything else really..
