Bluetooth Audio Latency

Is it just me or is bluetooth audio laggy while in VR. I hear sound effects a second after it should be playing. This happens in Oculus Home and other VR apps. But is ok for non-vr things such as Youtube. I tried a bluetooth headset and bluetooth speaker and get the same results.

    Of course bluetooth adds audio latency. Some headsets buffer more than others, and some gaming headsets have quite powerful transmitter/receiver and can run with aggressively small buffer and thus latency.

    Some headsets are geared toward music, and will dynamically increase the buffer size each time there is a buffer underrun.
