Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

How do you ask for low latency with aptX Adaptive?

How do any given headphones know if I'm gaming or listening to music, and therefore what latency/quality ratio might be best? Can I specify somehow? Thanks

aptX adaptive has a latency of about  80 ms according to Qualcomm.
This latency is fixed.
The adaptive part is the bit rate (279-480kbs) but this is about the stability of the connection, not about latency.

Ah you're right.

I also just read that aptX Adaptive isn't really compatible with LL either, as it reverts to regular aptX mode when connected to a LL device. Does that mean that Adaptive (80ms) isn't as good as LL (40ms) for latency or is there more to it? It seems strange that Qualcomm would retire a technology that they haven't full replaced.

AFAIK, that's that. If you want that low latency you need to have LL-capable hardware, on both the PC and the headphones.

Things should improve in the future with Bluetooth 5.2, which uses a lower latency codec by default.
