Bluetooth issues on Lollipop 5.0 and Note 3 (Verizon)

I was using the Plantronics Backbeat Go 2 headphones with my Galaxy Note 3 and had zero skipping issues. Unfortunately I lost these on a hike recently and had to get a replacement.

I recently bought these headphones and I was having problems with a skip/hitch sound every 5-10 seconds or so. So, thinking they were an issue with my headphones I ordered another pair: the Sony SBH20. Now, I have the very same issue with these as well.

What do you think could be the issue? I am using Poweramp and have tried increasing the audio buffer, it helped a bit but I still have an annoying skip every 5 seconds.

I am trying to figure out why the Backbeat Go 2 did not have this issue and both these headphones have it.
