Wireless Headphones for editing

PostMon Sep 26, 2022 1:10 pm

Anyone is using wireless (Bluetooth) headphones for editing with Resolve ?
I'm on a mac and with the Air Pod Pro the delay is so great that it would be impossible for me to use them. Is there a work around ? Anyone is editing without (or barely any) delay with Bluetooth headphones ?

Mac OS uses the native Bluetooth protocol, which has a terrible lag unless it uses Bluetooth 5.x. BT 4.2 and below lag is an issue.

You need to use a different protocol like AptX.

I think the 2018+ computers are all 5.x, anything before that is gonna need a different solution.

I'm using a Mac Studio and I believe the Air Pod Pro are BT 5.0 and the lag is "way too much" for editing. Do you have any headphone that you tried that worked OK ?
