Bluetooth Headphones Audio Problem on MacOS

Everytime im using a bluetooth headphone in my iMac and click on the Raid shadow legends window, my audio gets distorted, system wide. Only way i found to get back to normal audio reproduction, is when i reboot the system or when i disable the bluetooh module using a terminal comand.

~ % sudo pkill bluetoothd

It happens to all my bluetooth headphones. My Edifier w830bt, my Baseus Encok W04 Pro, any generic aliexpress wireless earbuds, doesnt matter.

Curiously, the Apple Airpods 2 is not affected by this issue.

I imagine it is caused by The Raid Shadow Legends app because it only starts when i click on the game window. If i have the game playing on the background, but dont touch it, it reproduces the audio normaly.

If i touch the window to play the game, the audio gets distorted, and i have to do one of the solutions mentioned before.

Can someone elaborate on this? Does anyone have the same issue? 

Plarium whats going on?

I have the same issue. It's very annoying and makes using macos client almost impossible for me.

I have the very same issue. Tried 3 different bluetooth headphones now (Sony wh-1000xm4, Sony wh-1000xm5, PowerBeats Pro). Opening up Shadow Legents app on Mac OS (Monterey 12.6, MacBook Pro 16", 2021) messes up the sound system-wide, rendering the audio unbareable.

User-side fix: re-connect bluetooth headphones and the audio kicks in correctly again, but only until Shadow Legends window gets focused again, in which case the audio gets broken again.

EXTREMELY annoying bug.

Can someone from plarium please answer this thread. Is this bug known to the developers?

Its frustraiting...... I tryed using sound source form rogue amoeba to redirect the audio from the app to another audio source....but its a no go.....

Somehow the raid app just plainly destroys de audio on non apple bluetooth devices.

It looks like your Bluetooth headphones are acting up when you play Raid Shadow Legends on your iMac. Seems like a glitch with the game because it messes up the sound when you click on it. The fix you found with the terminal command or by restarting the system works, but it doesn't affect Apple Airpods. Maybe others face this too. Hope someone can explain or Plarium can sort it out!
