    Hi there. Ive just noticed that every now and again when I play music through Bluetooth that it detunes if the signal gets weak, then when the signal gets stronger it tunes back up to where it should be. I have an iPhone 6, playing music with Apple music through to a Bose Mini Soundlink. Now I'm wondering if this is a common Bluetooth problem or if it's something my phone / Apple music is doing. This happens with music stored on my phone and when streaming. Have people experienced this with Apple Music even through headphones?

    As a sound engineer this frustrates me when I'm listening back to mixes as I think it could be a problem with the song but no.

    Cheers for any help.

    My understanding is that many BlueTooth devices re-sample the audio at a different bitrate from the original. The device may be experiencing "catch-up" during a weak signal.

    Bluetooth with a poor signal strength will produce less than optimal results. Even with perfect reception there will be some loss.
