    I bought AirPods and they are rock solid with Iphone X. When using them with 2015 rMB I have sound dropouts for several minutes at a time. I understand that range with Iphone X is better due to bluetooth 5.0 standard supported by both devices but I have sound drops when I use AirPods right in front of MacBook. I tried to reset BT module in MacBook but after clicking reset, the MacBook still remembers the AirPods. Resetting AirPods did not help. What can I try next? Thanks!

    I have exactly the same issue with my Beats X on my 2015 macbook. No problems on my phone.

    Only way I find to get them back is to turn the headphones off and reconnect. Sent the old ones back because of this issue... It seems its between 8 and 18 minutes at a time. Apple had no idea... classic

    I think its a bug in the software not the earphones themselves.

    Same issue here with AirPods and Early 2013 MBP, except there are short dropouts several times a minute. So tired of Apple's ecosystem integration screwing up at regular intervals...AppleTV, Airpods, BTMM, iTunes, GPS, etc.

    Unpairing and repairing appears to have solved the issue for me.
