    I have the same issue. I contact apple, they do a lot of test on my devices and ask to me to contact the Logi Support.

    So, what should I do? I buy one 100 euros device, but I con't use the bluetooth option?

    I have one MacBook Pro 2020 running the Monterey 12.2.

    I use the MX Master 3 and MX Keys. I try the upgrade firmware software from Logi, but the message is that the firmware of both are the last one.

    The problem afect the sound and microphone of bluetooth headphones and the keyboard response.
    I try with 3 different: AirPods 2021, AirPods Max and one Sony bluetooth.

    Yesterday I contact Apple, they perform a lot of validations on the MacBook and ask my to try the Logi support, because they have the information that the same problem already occur with other users and Logi support helps.

    If the Logitech products are working as expected, we request you to contact the manufacturer of the other device to know more about the issue. We will also pass the feedback along to the team.

    This is the equivalent of hitting someone with your car and then blaming them for getting hurt. I have tested several bluetooth devices and the only one causing issues with my Airpods is my MX Anywhere 2S mouse. The unifying receiver essentially doesn't work for me at all (I get massive lag, stutters, and jumps) due to needing a USB-C hub on all modern Macs. I'm shocked Logitech isn't taking this more seriously, I would give up my 3rd party mouse before my 1st party headphones every time, and this is a company based solely on providing 3rd party peripherals.

    Same issue here! I've scoured forums all over the web and this seems to be a wide spread issue. I'm very disappointed that the only support advice being given is to reset and upgrade to latest firmware. Clearly this a problem requiring a firmware patch. When is that coming! Come on Logitech. Love the product, but this is killing my workflow!

    That is not that issue Amogha.  I've used other bluetooth mice and other devices.  The issue is that when using teleconferencing software, use of a Logitech mouse creates a "robotic" voice distortion.  Since this only occurs with the Logitech device using bluetooth, and no other bluetooth devices (including other mice and keyboards) this is a Logitech issue, not a computer bandwidth issue.  I'm hoping you can resolve before we all find new equipment to use instead of trying to flag issues for a company that apparently refuses to listen to its customers.

    Matt Gardenghi seems like most other headphones / earbuds work without issue based on what others have commented. I bought a knock-off brand of Airpods on Amazon and they work fine. I hate having to use them though lol.

    Prem L Can you please take away the “Answered” tag on this thread? It’s clear this issue is not answered and I do not want your dev/project manager bypassing these problems because of the “Answered” tag.

    I try all the steps, my bluetooth module was reseted. All configurations are cleared. 
    I reconnected the devices and tested them. Same result.
    If the keyboard is turned-on, I have a lot of issues with bluetooth headphones. 
     
    I have 3 different headphones, 2 airpods and one from Sony. All 3 devices have the same problem when the keyboard is connected.
     
    And if I connect using the Unifying adapter, works well. But I buy this devices because of the bluetooth options.

    Hey there! Also having this issue, as are some other folks in this thread:

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/25353492

    • Airpods Pro have no issue connected to my iPhone. I've even replaced the Airpods, with the exact same result.
    • When I turn the mouse off the garbled voice immediately resolves itself. 
    • Issue does not occur when using Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad.

    MX Master 3 Mac connected over bluetooth, Airpods Pro with 4C165 firmware (most recent,) 5k iMac 2020 model running macOS 12.2.1. 

    I started using my MX Master 3 again a few weeks ago, which is right around the time I started experiencing this issue. Only today did I put the two together and try turning the mouse off.

    Hi all, for those using the MX3 mouse for Mac (via bluetooth) where the airpods sounds robotic/garbled/underwater try unpairing your mouse from your mac, change to a different channel on your mouse (flip it over and press the button under 1,2,3) and then repair it using a different channel. This solved my issue after reading dozens of reddit, support posts, articles, etc. For those experiencing dropouts (a totally different issue) try turning off "airplay receiver" on your mac.

    Edit: The above "fix" was short lived and my issue is back. Another poster indicated you can just turn off/on your mouse at the start of any VoIP call and I've been doing so for a week now and it allows me to get around this issue.  This is still extremely annoying and will likely result in me getting a different mouse, it's just too annoying to have to do this ever time I answer a call, start a zoom, etc.

    I have the exact same issue when I connect my MX master keyboard and Mouse. It distorts my microphone. For $200 hardware this is pretty pathetic. I spoke to apple multiple times and they asked to contact Logitech. The issue does not exist when connecting the apple magic keyboard and mouse via Bluetooth. Now the MX master kybd and mouse are sitting there gathering dust as i have no choice but to use by magic kybd and mouse when on VoIP Conf calls. Would Logitech issue me a refund? I can send the receipts. 

    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2020, Four Thunderbolt 3 ports)

    MacOS: Moterey 12.3.1. 

     

    Issue has persisted thru all versions of Mac OS 12.

    UPDATE: THIS IS HOW I FIXED IT                   Logitech vs Apple AirPods Pro & Max - Sound issues resolv...                 

    MacBook Pro 16"  2019 Intel + AirPods Pro = Darth Vader voice.

    Temporary solution: Buy Bolt connector + USB A->USB C connector. Connect Logi MX Keys mini keyboard and Logi pop mouse to Bolt connector.

    The problem I have with this? It reassigned the keyboard keys. Cmd is now on Option. 

    Logi, we can't fight with Apple, when using their computer, their AirPods. The outsider here is Logi. Logi has to find a solution, please!

    I have a MacBook Pro 16' 2019 and I have the exact same problem with my K860 keyboard (and MX Vertical). When connected (Bluetooth) my colleagues report to me that I sound like a robot. It doesn't matter if it is Google Meet or Teams. Everything is up-to-date and the only solution seems to re-connect (multiple times) the keyboard every time I go into a call. It is annoying to the point that I stopped using the mic on my Airpods. For me this is the last Logitech bluetooth keyboard and mouse in combination with any MacBook. Solve this issue Logitech.

    To add: The Bluetooth connection (K860) is also unstable from time to time. The Keyboard becomes unresponsive and needs a re-connect. Almost feels like a 'dirty' Bluetooth connection that is messing with all the other connected devices.

    Yeah, I'm using the Unifying as a workaround right now too. It is not optimal :(

    Just wanted to say that I am having this exact same problem, is there any way for fix this? The unify dongle is hot garbage and lags like crazy.

    I have been using the mouse for months on my MacBook Pro without any issue, recently updated Mac OS, so that might have something to do with it?

    Since I've upgraded to macOs Monterey this started, so is Logitech working with Apple to fix it? Any backlog updates from Logitech Prem L?

    Bummer, that didn't work for me. Tried all the different channels. I wonder why...

    Thanks so much for posting a fix, though. I hope it fixes it for everyone else!

    Hi,

    I'm having a similar issue: using Logitech MX Master 3 and Apple Airpods Pro at the same time = robotic and unusable microphone, for example in Zoom video conferences.

    I have a MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) with MacOS Monterey 12.3.1 (21E258), 2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9, 32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB.

    AirPods Pro are Model A2084 (hardware 1.0) with firmware 4C165.

    If I use my Logitech MX Master 3 for Mac (firmware seems latest) with Logi Options, and Apple AirPods Pro, the microphone input is robotic, distortionned and unusable. Other bluetooth product do not seem to interfere with AirPods Pro. If I turn off the MX Master 3, AirPods microphones work again!

    Computer specs:

    Model Name: MacBook Pro

      Model Identifier: MacBookPro16,1

      Processor Name: 8-Core Intel Core i9

      Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz

      Number of Processors: 1

      Total Number of Cores: 8

      L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB

      L3 Cache: 16 MB

      Hyper-Threading Technology: Enabled

      Memory: 32 GB

      System Firmware Version: 1731.100.130.0.0 (iBridge: 19.16.14243.0.0,0)

      OS Loader Version: 540.100.7~23

    Hi Logitech, any updates on this issue? As I do most meetings on my AirPods and I believe lot of apple users do, we are Unable to use AirPods along with Logitech mouse. Do you guys identify this issue and in process of getting a firmware update ? If not, can we get a refund for our mouse and keyboard?

    Same issue here - Using AirPod Pros and Mx 2s via bluetooth creates a robotic sound from the microphone.  Glad to know I'm not alone, but sad to see that Logitech isn't really doing anything to fix the issue.  And, while I would appreciate a response - if it's a recommendation to update or reset my system, please know that I've already done all of the standard steps.  This solution lives with a firmware update from Logitech - and that's what I'm expecting.

    This is also in the Apple discussion boards and it's still an on going issue. I would like to see this resolved. I want to use Bluetooth and not the Unifying USB dongle. I'd like my USB ports on my Mac for other devices. 

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/253598395

    Until this problem is resolved, I will no longer be recommending the MX to colleagues.
