Sim audio quality poor when connecting to vPilot


I don’t know what the issue is but when I go to connect to VATSIM via vPilot my audio quality in-sim drops.

The best way I can describe it is 4K to 720p in terms of quality.

This happens instantly as soon as I switch on vPilot application (I don’t need to login to the network before this happens)

Has anyone experienced this before?

I am running

Windows 11
Latest version of vPilot
Bluetooth Headset (Jabra Evolve2 65)

The audio of the controllers is fantastic - but its almost as if vPilot takes over all audio of the PC.

Any ideas on this? My Communications Setting in Windows is set to Do Nothing.

If I shut down the vPilot.exe the audio restores to perfect quality again
