At present voice channels on the desktop client act like phone calls, in that if your headphones (usually bluetooth) has a dedicated "phone call mode," it will use that instead of the more robust sound of desktop audio. For example, my Bose Soundwear headphones, when connected to my desktop computer, have a "Speaker" audio output for all sounds that my computer is making, and a "Headset" audio output for phone calls. The "Headset" audio output sound quality is considerably worse than the "Speker" output. There is something in the Discord application that is flagging voice channels as "phone calls" and forcing sound to only work in the "Headset" audio output and not the "Speaker" output. Something to allow us to toggle this or work around it would be great, as I currently can not use the headphones I want to use to interact with voice channels.
