I recently got a pair of JBL Free X True Wireless Earbuds, the sound on these continually cut out, that's when the phone is in my hand, when I put my phone in my pocket the Bluetooth connection just cuts out completely. I've tried these earbuds out with a Huawei nova 3i to confirm the earbuds weren't at fault and I didn't experience any sound cut outs or Bluetooth disconnections. So that rules out the earbuds themselves.
I've tried clearing the cache in the Bluetooth app and resetting the phone to no avail. My phone is running the latest version of Android and completely up to date with all the latest security patches.
I do have a pair of Nakamichi N-Energy plus Bluetooth Earphones, that has less connection issues, but I still experience the stutters and I still experience Bluetooth disconnections when I walk away half the distance of the range it was advertised that it operates, I didn't suspect much until my experience with the JBL's.
Is this a common issue with Bluetooth headsets when paired with the Nokia 8 Sirocco? Should I even bother trying to find a pair that won't stutter each time I pocket my phone or disconnect completely?
