    I just bought some bluetooth headphones to get ready for the iPhone 7, the problem is whenever the Magic Keyboard is paired the headphones won't work correctly, they keep skipping seconds

    Any suggestions? should i just try another model?

    BT is bandwidth limited more devices less space for the data. Newer Mac`s have apt-X, however when more BT peripherals are connected apt-X is dropped in favour of lower quality BT profiles. As much as Apple proclaims, we are far off being fully wireless with acceptable levels of quality...

    You can try, it`s all about the bandwidth & hardware. The problem with standards and protocols they are rarely adhered to 100%. Bottom line it will be very much a random affair.

    Another way to put is, you need to find a set of BT headphones that require less bandwidth, however the tradeoff is the quality of the audio.
