I can either use my earphones as a mic or to listen to something... Not both. Can anyone help me?

I have my Sony 1000-XM3 Bluetooth headphones connected to my laptop, but when I boot up Shadow, I don’t get any sound out through them. It does however pick up the mic from the headphones.

Can you tell me what device you are using? Are you using usb pass through for the headset?

I would suggest that you make a separate post about your particular issue)

Due to bandwidth limitations on Bluetooth (only 700mhtz of the spectrum). you cannot run a mic and have stereo audio at the same time.

Do you mean on Shadow? Because I use this headset for work to have Teams meetings, and the same with my Samsung Galaxy Buds to take phone calls

Bluetooth uses profiles and fast profile switching to change modes. Again the same 700mhtz cap for Bluetooth spectrum. 

For audio, it uses Advanced Audio Distribution Profile. This profile allows for the transmission of high-quality stereo audio. Your Bluetooth headphones and car stereo rely on this. Prior to the introduction of A2DP, the quality of Bluetooth audio was rather grainy and suitable only for phone calls.

 

when you place a call or use the mic the headset configures into mono mode to free up bandwidth for your mic and uses Handsfree Profile (HFP) This profile allows for calls to be answered, ended, and the volume level adjusted from a headset. This is needed in conjunction with A2DP so that the users can switch between listening to music and making calls. 

 

This is a Bluetooth limitation, not a shadow limitation.

Alright so the settings that fixed it for me was to make my headset as the default communication device on my local pc… So if anyone else is facing the same issue try making it the default device.
