Android Bluetooth Stutter - Bose 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones
I got a pair of Bose® 700 Noise Cancelling Over-Ear Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, and am running into an issue when I pair them to multiple devices.
I'll be connected to both my TV and my Android smartphone (Pixel 3a) so I can hear the TV and also get alerts through my phone, or control the TV with Google Assistant. The trouble kicks in when my phone has been sitting inactive for about 5 minutes - the audio from the TV starts to stutter on and off. As soon as I unlock my phone, the stuttering stops, but if I leave it locked for about 5 more minutes, the stutter starts back up again.
Since the headphones automatically connect to the phone, my only solution is to turn off my phone's bluetooth. Once the headphones are only connected to the TV, there are no connection issues.
Has anyone else had this problem or found a solution?
