I am using Apple Airpods and recently installed a new 20.04 version on my laptop. The Airpods connect but the sound at the beginning of usage is a bit choppy. After a few seconds it works smoothly. Then, at some random point in time the sound gets choppy and either recovers or ends up to stop working completely. I then have to restart bluetooth and reconnect the headphones. Rinse and repeat. I tried the solutions here: Bluetooth randomly cutting out in Ubuntu but they did not work.
I am using kernel
5.8.0-41-generic and I am connected to the internet via an Ethernet cable.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
