Moto X, Bose BT2, and Bluetooth media audio profile glitch
I use my Bose BT2 Bluetooth headset to listen to audio books on my Verizon Moto X. Since Verizon pushed the update to KitKat, the media audio profile has a glitch which makes this method of listening to audio books unusable.
While listening to audio through the BT2, if I receive a phone call, the audio races ahead at a rate of roughly 30 seconds of audio per second that I am on the phone call, so when I finish the call, I have missed minutes or hours of the book.
I use the Audible app from Audible.com. I have also tested the Moto X and BT2 with the Play Music app that came stock with my Moto X and have observed the same problem, although the music did not race ahead at the same rate.
I tested the Moto X with a different Bluetooth device and with no Bluetooth device (used the speaker), and the audio was properly interrupted when a call came in and resumed at the same point in the audio file that it was interrupted in both of these cases.
The update of the Moto X to 4.4.2 did not make the problem any better. Updating the BT2 from firmware version 01.05.00 to 01.07.00 did not solve the issue. Bose replaced the headset with a new BT2, which did not solve the issue.
I had assumed at this point that the problem was with the BT2 firmware and reported the issue to Bose technical support, but recently I had a conversation with a mobile phone sales rep who uses a Moto X and a BT2, and they have not experienced this issue ever though they use the Bluetooth media profile to listen to music.
So my question is: Has anyone else seen this problem? Could this be some sort or hardware problem?
