My main complaint about these so far is that they sound good enough to make it very noticeable just how bad bluetooth is for audio. These sound amazing when plugged in, but terrible wireless. The base just disappears, and the music gets noticeably crackly. It's a shame these don't run on a different wireless protocol with a dongle or something. Or maybe the bluetooth on my work laptop is just really really bad.

Its most likely your laptop. If you have an android phone you can change the bluetooth codec in the developer settings. Put it on ldac, force it to use the 990kbps option and the try again. I bet it will sound way better.

Thanks, LDAC made a huge difference. Running the 990kbps option causes lots of skipping and stuttering, but it still sounds great with adaptive or 660kbps. They're for work though, so I'm going to have to find some way to get them to play nice with my laptop.

You could get a dongle for your laptop. I have the creative Bt-W2 and have used a 1Mii Bluetooth audio adapter and both performed similarly. I don't have the Panda yet, but the creative worked well at providing aptx-ll to my Sennheisers. I believe the one 1Mii also does aptx-hd as well as aptx-ll.

Shanling Q1 in USB DAC Mode would enable you to use LDAC from your laptop most likely, or Google for "Reiyin aptX HD" which is less versatile but more affordable (and should also support the built-in mic, which the Q1 will not)
