Thumbs down Bluetooth Audio: Skips when playing music (4.4.2)

So on both 4.3 and 4.4.2 I'm having audio skips every few minutes. Really annoying.
Tried pairing this bluetooth headset with my old nexus 7 (2012) and no skips.

The headset is BT4.0, so there shouldn't be a problem. Yet there is.
I tried turning all power management features off, use a different app/music format and it still happens...
CPU usage is low, ~50% on one core @ 300mhz

Anyone else having this?

edit: actually, after coming back to stock 4.3 the skipping stopped. Wtf, Sony.
