M1 Mac Bluetooth audio issues

Audio is choppy and distorted when using bluetooth headphones in the client, and when the client is quit the distortion continues until either reboot or bluetooth is toggled on and off.

Could you file a bug report from within the client, so we can get more information (like what OS version you’re running etc.). Also let us know what headphones you’re using.

Many of us at CCP play on a Mac with Bluetooth headphones, so we’re not aware of any specific Bluetooth issues right now.

Many thanks!

Description of Problem:
After testing have found some different behaviour than previous bug reports.
Bluetooth audio now seems to work alright if client is already started before connection of headphones but not when there connected before client starts.
Headphones I’ve been able to reproduce this on:
Sony WH-1000xm3
Sony WF-1000xm3
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

MacOS Monteray version 12.4
M1 Macbook Air 8GB, 512GB SSD. Model Name: MacBook Air
Model Identifier: MacBookAir10,1
Chip: Apple M1
Total Number of Cores: 8 (4 performance and 4 efficiency)
Memory: 8 GB
System Firmware Version: 7459.121.3

Reproduction Steps:
When starting the client from the launcher with bluetooth headphones connected audio in game audio stutters and is distorted.
Distortion continues after closing the client ( tested with youtube video of Linus Sebastian speaking ) until headphones are disconnected or bluetooth is toggled of an on.
