Audio drops out/crackles with AirPods Pro on iOS 14

I’ve been having this problem since iOS 14 public beta, but it’s still happening on the official iOS 14 release. During video playback, the audio stream drops out for a couple seconds at a time and often crackles. Sounds like a Bluetooth connection/dropout. This happens every few minutes, even with a locally-downloaded file.

Using Airpods Pro (over Bluetooth, of course) on an
iPhone X running iOS 14
Infuse Pro 6.5 (3234)

Thanks for any help or suggestions you might have!

I get the same issue in the music app. I’m thinking it might be ios14 related

I should have mentioned that Infuse is the only app experiencing this problem. All other apps that play audio work fine.

Is this happening with all files or just a few?

As a quick test, can you try disabling the ‘Dolby Audio Effects’ option found in Infuse > Settings > Playback to see if this has any impact?

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, it did not make a difference. It also doesn’t seem to matter what the source of the file is – either streaming from my home server (Jellyfin), or downloaded locally to the iPhone, the audio drops out regardless.

Same problem here (Airpods 2, iOS 14.4.1, infuse 6.6.2). :frowning:
