Bluetooth audio problems

Hello all,
My bluetooth works great when I am using it for phone calls but as soon as I try listening to music the connection goes to crap. I have a plantronics voyager by device and a set of plantronics head phones. Both work great for phone calls neither will play music. Its very broken...two seconds of silence then two seconds of music...... any ideas?

The first thing I would do would be to go into Bluetooth settings and make sure your devices are setup for A2DP. This can be done by pressing the gear icon next to each device and make sure that A2DP has a check mark next to it. A2DP is used to listen to music, so if there is no A2DP option, then your device does not support streaming music.

I've been using my DRM to stram music while I ride my bike and I find that my music will cut out if I move my head the wrong way. Apparently I'm putting too much of body between the phone and my headphones which blocks the signal...

I've been using Bluetooth headphones for years, thus phone just doesn't like to stream music.
I'm having the same problem as the OP.

I'm having the problem trying to use plantronics and the jaybird freedoms.

At first i thought i had a problem with the plantronics cause they are 3-4 years old. Then i tried the jaybirds and the same thing. I know they both work, i use them on my laptops, iPad, iPhone without any issues.

It just seems like the Bluetooth signal on the RAZR Maxx is weak, I'd I'm holding the phone in front of me, as if i were texting. Etc and wearing the jaybirds i gage to put the Maxx next to my head so it will connect.

With every other device i can be 5-10 feet away walking around, and it will connect and stay connected.

I wanted to test it out on another RAZR or Maxx at a VZW store too See if it was just my device.
