Songs Speed Up / Slow Down with Bluetooth Device

Songs speed up then slow down like a broken record player Lately my music will speed and slow as if it were being played on a record player or something.  It doesn't cut out, but will slow to like 3/4 speed and then next second its up to 1.25 speed or something like that... its weird.  I would expect it to cut out if the bandwidth was low.  Having said that....

IPhone 11pro
Connection good so should be totally fine.
Latest update installed.

Any idea whats going on?

Hi Folks,

Hoping this situation will be familiar to someone who can suggest a solution.  When I listen to a Pandora stream with my iPad over WiFi, I frequently experience what best can be described as wow and flutter.  Songs/Tunes speed up and slow down during playback as if someone was putting their finger on a turntable or the belt was going bad.

This occurs when listening through the iPad’s speakers and also when listening through Bluetooth speakers.  I feel like the problem is more significant with the Bluetooth speakers.

I’ve tried searching for similar issues and found references to loud noise or distortions but not speeding up and slowing down. Any thoughts on what can be done to stop or correct this behavior?

Hey there, @ldiener. 👋

Thanks so much for reporting your experience. 

I moved your post over to this existing thread to keep the community space organized: Songs Speed Up / Slow Down with Bluetooth Device

First, I would recommend checking out the accepted solution for this thread here.

If you still have trouble, could you provide more details about how you're listening?

  • Device & Generation: (e.g. iPad Air 2 / the speaker make & model)
  • Carrier:
  • iOS version: (Settings > General > About > Version)
  • Pandora version: (Pandora > Profile tab > Settings gear & scroll to the bottom of the screen)
  • Are you connected to Wi-Fi or cellular data when this is happening?

Let me know how it goes. 🎧

I have slow down/speed up issues too. No cutting out, just variable speed. 

At home I have one gig wifi, so it’s not buffering. 

It happens whether playing through wifi on Amazon echo devices, or on wifi on my iPhone 11.   Same issue.   Less frequently on the echo devices. 

I think it also happens occasionally on my iPhone when streaming through cellular as well  


This started about two to three months ago. 

 

I have a full account, not free. 

Help?
