I just picked up a pair of Son WF-1000XM3's good so far

 

They connect easily enough to apple and android and work really well

 

I then went t connect to my PC. I have "basic" USB Bluetooth device. It was easy enough to connect.

 

However the connection is very there not there type of connection.

 

 

 

Question. Is there a better than most Bluetooth connection/ USB plug for PCS that you would recommend??

I'd say anything in a large plastic case or with an external antenna. When you cram a blue-tooth/wifi receiver into a micro-dongle the first thing that is taken out is a decent antenna. 

 

Have you tried putting your existing receiver on the on the end of USB extension cable and elevating it? The computer can block the signal & the wifi can interfere.

I have an Asus PCE-AC55BT B1 AC1200 wireless bluetooth pcie adapter. Might be a bit overkill in this scenario (and pricey compared to tripper1000s recommendations) but works great with its external antenna. Use it to connect to (1) a pair of Edifier R1280db speakers and (2) a couple of 3rd party wii remotes so we can play Mario Kart on the big screen.

I changed the usb adapter to a Orico? one and all seems well in the world

 

Mind you I will keep the "overkill" in mind in case i see one cheap.
