Codec switch for headset mode drastically reduces quality -- expected behaviour? (Mac & skype/zoom)
I have the same problem: on my mac, when using my NC700 with Zoom or Skype (that is, using both microphone and audio capacity), the codec switches from AAC to SOC. A moderator in the above thread has called this a switch of profile. The coinciding reduction of quality however is extreme: my conversation partners tell me I sound far away and hollow, and the audio sounds distant and weak. Let me reiterate this point: the quality reduction is so great that I am wondering if I accidentally used a 2-dollar pair of headphones, like the ones given out on airplanes.
A number of questions:
1) Is this really the intended behaviour, as indicated by the moderator in the above thread?
2) what is the technical reason for why this behaviour is intended on my macbook, but not on my iphone (where I can use both audio and microphone perfectly)? Does it have to do with differences in the bluetooth capability? Will never computers not face this problem?
3) is there a way to allow users to intentionally select quality priority over connectivity priority, or will this ever be implemented?
4) if this is intended behaviour, will it remain this way for all future Bose headsets?
Thanks for your answer.
