My Question or Issue

When I use Discord and join a channel the audio quality drops significantly. I am not sure if it because of bandwith issues because when I download my playlist the same thing happens.

 

This also happens when I connect to a remote computer via GeForce Now.

 

I am using AirPods to listen to music.

Hey @pdyck, welcome to the Community.

 

Hope you are doing great!

 

Spotify streams the music over the internet so a good internet connection is required for higher end sound quality of the music. Same thing for your AirPods. Wireless headphones/earphones need to have a strong connection to have a plausible experience. 

Just make sure everything is up to date :)

 

Hope it helps!
