Bluetooth devices and Krisp

This article explains how Bluetooth devices work generally and how they work with Krisp.


How do Bluetooth devices work in general?

Generally, Bluetooth headsets are two-channel devices. When listening to music, for example, you use the device as a speaker only. This means that both of the channels are assigned to the speakers and the sound can be in stereo.

The Bluetooth microphone itself is generally a mono device. Whenever the Bluetooth headset microphone is used, one of the channels gets assigned to it. This means both the speaker and the microphone will be in mono.


How do Bluetooth devices work with Krisp?

On Mac On Windows 10

First, let's talk about Bluetooth devices working with Mac devices without Krisp.

When you use the speakers only, the sound is stereo, the moment you start using the Bluetooth microphone, both the microphone and the speaker become mono automatically. If the microphone stops being used, the speakers go stereo again. This usually goes unnoticed, as you don't talk and listen at the same time.

Now let's add Krisp to this.

If you have your Bluetooth microphone and speaker both selected in the Krisp app, they will always work in mono. Also, take into account that the voice quality you get through the speakers will be 16000hz maximum. This is the case with AirPods Pro, for example, when the speakers themselves support HD voice, but not when used with Krisp. In any case, this shouldn't change your experience noticeably.
