I have a weird consistency problem when using these with my TV(Sony oled KD-55A8H) which is my main purpose for these headphones. I connect to my TV via in built bluetooth and If I use apps like netflix, disney, youtube etc every time I start a video the audio jitters really badly and takes 30 seconds or so to level out then its fine. This issue repeats itself if I fast forward, pause, change tracking etc. SUUUUPER annoying! does anyone know what might be causing this and whether or not its fixable?
Bluetooth sucks for video and has all kinds of audio sync issues. I would not rely on it.
if it's jittering and desyncing then synchronising after 30s, that sounds like an issue with the TV. modern versions of Bluetooth and the codecs support telling the device what the delay is, and they're meant to correspondingly delay what's on screen to match.
my phone, a pixel 3, does this with no fanfare and it's perfect every time (besides half a second or so of silence after hitting play while it syncs), but it sounds like your TV might be struggling to find an equilibrium.
i'm presuming you've already tried looking to see if there's new firmware for the TV, or contacting Sony to ask about it?
also, do you know which codec you're using? LDAC, while sounding better, is known to have a bigger delay than aptXHD, which is what i use for watching youtube and netflix on my phone. idk which codecs the Sony TV supports but since it's Android TV you should be able to find out by digging in the settings.
I have started using these with my laptop and I'm experiencing the same issue. Listening to youtube videos is so jittery and painful that I'm regretting my decision to buy these. I really want to like them but they actually suck.
Sorry for the delay! It’s never nice when stuff doesn’t play nice with your equipment. I’ve only been able to test them so far with analogue sources and my phones and tablets, as I’ve had computer power supply issues. But with those I’ve had no problems at all. It’s probably too late now, but yours sounds like the kind of weird problem that you might be able to RMA and see if a new unit doesn’t have the problem. But of course I wouldn’t blame you for going for something like a Sony or a Bose which might be more consistent in outcome.
