I have some really weird and annoying issues with bluetooth audio on my Note 3:
1 - Basically whenever the screen turns on or off, the blutooth audio will cut off for few seconds then come back.
2 - When I use it for google map turn by turn navigation, the first seconds of the voices always get cut off, so if the direction is long, I'll hear the end. And if it's short, I won't hear anything.

Anyone else has similar issues? If so any solutions? It's driving me nuts and I'm not even sure if it's the Note 3 issue or Android 4.3. My Note 2 has been working flawlessly with the same setup for the past year. My note 3 is running AT&T stock ROM, rooted and unlocked, froze some bloatware with TB, my bluetooth headset is Jaybird Bluebuds X. thanks for any suggestions!

I had this with my old HTC EVO 3D and my pluggin BT FM Radio device. I thought it was that but my Note 3 works perfect. Nothing like what you described for me.

Which version of the note 3 are you using? is it rooted with custom rom or everything stock?

I just deleted all system & user app cache from Titanium Backup, this seems to have solved the first issue. But I still miss first few seconds of spoken direction from google navigation with my bluetooth headset. I'm tempted to do a factory reset now...


UPDATE: I did more testing and have found out more. it seems to only occur during audio stream switching. If no music or audiobook(I use different apps for them) is playing, there is no sound cut off. but if either the music or audiobook is playing, first few seconds of audio from any notification or google voice navigation is cut off.

Well, that's better than the Bluetooth on my Note 3 LoL. On my Note the voice on the other end is muted every now and then when calling with a Mercedes carkit. (Comander). And... when streaming music to a high end apt-x dongle (HTC car A100) I get some gaps in the music
Never ever had any problems with the same configuration with a gazillion other Android phones

Thanks for this info. I'm choosing between the Note 2 and Note 3 and will go APTX exclusively. Worrying that it cuts out like that.

When it works, what about the actual audio quality with APTX? Have you listened to high resolution FLAC files, and can you tell a difference with the Note3 and APTX on?

I've tried both custom & stock rom based on several variant of the 4.3 roms, they all have this issue so eventually i just gave up.
The good news is that I'm running on Kitkat 4.4.2 now, both rooted and stock seem to have fixed the issue, bluetooth audio switching is extremely fast(along with everything else) and no cut off.
