Cracking or popping sound vie Bluetooth in Max OSX 10.8 Mountain lion

Many people have problems with their bluetooth sound after upgrading to Mac OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion.

The solution is not as complicated as it looks, you have to set the minimum bitrate for your bluetooth audio higher. You have two options on how to do so:

Edit following file (e.g. with textwrangler):

And set „Apple Bitpool Min“ to 50

or (even easier) run in Terminal (without the “$”):
$ defaults write “Apple Bitpool Min (editable)” 50

If you don’t already know the terminal: Press <cmd> + <Space> and type in: Terminal <Enter>

Values range from 0 to 58:
30 – Low audio quality
40 – Medium audio quality
48 – High audio quality
58 – Excellent audio quality
