    I can confirm that using a 5.8 Ghz WiFi network rather than 2.4 completely resolved stuttering and oft disconnecting (Stop using headphones dialog) streamed Bluetooth audio for me.  Disabling WiFi and/or using an Ethernet connection also resolves said issues.

     

    MacBook Pro 17in 2.6 Ghz (C2D), 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)

    Time Capsule, 2nd Gen, 2TB (802.11n, auto channel selection, interference robustness enabled, bridge mode, v7.6.4)

     

    I'm running SL, but worth a try for those using Lion.

    Same problem with OS X 10.9 & macbook pro 15" early 2013, bluetooth audio only works correctly when the wifi is off.

    Timoly,

    What BT devices are you using ? What model of Macbook Pro do you have ?

    Timoly,

    If you hold down the Option key and click the Bluetooth Menu Extra icon, it should provide you an option to Create a Diagnostic report on the Desktop. If you get this and save it someplace, I can take a look at it to see if there is something in there that can help you out.
