Stuttering Bluetooth Audio Fix Mac OS X (El Capitan)

Jaybird Bluebuds X Sport HeadphonesSo, I was watching a video at work as part of my training yesterday using my Jaybird Bluebuds X In-Ear Headset without any problems on a brand new MacBook Pro 13-inch.

I started work today where I left off and the audio was choppy. I disconnected these Bluebuds from my Mac and connected to my iPhone 6 – no problems. Connected back to Mac, stuttering.

So, what to do? Google it! It took a few different results and experiments (I’ll list those that didn’t work) until I found the following fix: reset the bluetooth  module!

The fixes that did not work from this page:

  1. sudo defaults write ‘Apple Bitpool Min (editable)”’53 (site shows with ” but you have to change to single quotes ‘)
  2. sudo killall coreaudiod
