When I connect Samsung Level U bluetooth headphone/mic to my Beelink GTR-Pro, I don't find the results satisfactory:

1) the sound infrequently cuts in/out when I sit IN FRONT of the computer
2) the sound consistently cuts in/out outside of 10 feet - even in direct sight of the computer (no walls or barriers)
3) complete loss of sound if more than 30 feet and a single interior wall is encountered

I use the same headphones at work and can get as much as 100 feet and multiple walls & cubicles away from my office HP laptop, so I doubt the headphones are the problem.

I had anticipated being able to listen to streaming TV/audio or conduct a Zoom/Webex/Skype/Teams audio call without having to be tethered to the Beelink PC.
Is there a driver update that could impact bluetooth transmission or is this a hardware limitation/defect?

My GT-R is using the following driver.
Intel(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R)
Driver Provider: Intel Corporation
Driver Date: 4/22/2020
Driver Version: 21.90.2.1

I don't think I have any good bluetooth stuff to test it with. I have my bluetooth headphones at work.

I think we have software and the antenna, which are the only things that will affect how the bluetooth works. I'd have to look at all the pictures of the internals to hopefully find out where the bluetooth module and antenna are at. I think the entire case of the GT-R is aluminum, but the WiFi seems to work well.

Testing for 2 minutes at about 10-12 feet from the (mini) computer, I don't seem to have any sound cutting out.

Testing with a Blitzwolf BW-BTS4, Bluetooth 5.0 (which I don't recommend due to poor sound quality):
