# Change bluetooth audio parameters on OSX to solve dropping/choppy audio problems on Yosemite
# (and earlier, reportedly) w/ BT headphones. This is not a perfect solution, but reduces
# the number of interruptions dramatically. It has been tested on exactly one machine with
# iTunes local audio only; please leave a comment if you discover it causes any problems with AirPlay
# or other software.
defaults write com.apple.BluetoothAudioAgent "Apple Bitpool Min (editable)" 48
defaults write com.apple.BluetoothAudioAgent "Stream - Max Outstanding Packets (editable)" 10
defaults write com.apple.BluetoothAudioAgent "Stream Resume Delay" 0
# ... then turn Bluetooth off and on again from the taskbar. Previous defaults on my machine were:
#
#$> defaults read com.apple.BluetoothAudioAgent

# "Apple Bitpool Max (editable)" = 64;
# "Apple Bitpool Min (editable)" = 40;
# "Apple Initial Bitpool (editable)" = 30;

# "Negotiated Bitpool Max" = 60;
# "Negotiated Bitpool Min" = 2;
# "Stream - Flush Ring on Packet Drop (editable)" = 0;
# "Stream - Max Outstanding Packets (editable)" = 10;
