Does Bluetooth V5.0 offer benefits over earlier versions?

Yes and no.

For audio streams, Bluetooth V5.0 does not really offer material differences to 2.1 (neither do 3.0, 3.1, 4.2 etc). Almost all Bluetooth 5.0 improvements over 4.2 focus on low energy modes and nothing has been done for audio. Similar situations existed for earlier versions. To take advantage of the data-rate and range improvements, a new audio device profile (not A2DP) would be required.
