Hello, I would like to buy a pair of wireless bluetooth earbuds. The problem is that my old pc (10-year old laptop)has 3.0 bluetooth version while the earbuds require 5.0.
what is the best way to make it work and minimize any issues that may come up(connectivity issues,audio lag etc.)
1)upgrade the hardware by replacing the bluetooth 3.0 board to a 5.0 one or there might be a driver compatibility issue, I guess?
2)buy a usb bluetooth adapter or there is a chance for a contradiction between the Bluetooth driver available for this OS ? 3)buy bluetooth transmitter/receiver and work on existing OS (windows 7) after disabling laptop's bluetooth device in BIOS? 4)upgrade to windows 10 and buy a BT transmitter/receiver?
I believe 3) or 4) are the most feasible ways to make it work.
1)Could you tell me which of the above-mentioned ways might increase the chances of making it work?
2)I know that if you want to reduce the lag of bluetooth audio transmission you need aptX codec support for both the receiving and transmitting device.Some earbuds support the AptX codec.Windows 7 doesn't have an inbuilt Bluetooth Hardware Aptx. Hence, should I choose an apt-x enabled adapter/transmitter-receiver?
