Streaming sites on Brave disables Bluetooth headset

Hello. I just got an Edifier W800BT and it works as expected with anything but audio on Brave. Whenever I try to play audio from Youtube, Netflix, Spotify, or any other websites that stream video and audio on the Brave browser, the headset disconnects and I have to reconnect it.

This didn’t happen with my old Bluetooth headset at all, and the audio settings I’ve found have nothing to do with it. It does not happen in any other browsers, including Firefox and Chrome. It does not happen with my phone. It does not happen while playing audio originating from my computer`s hard drive, or any other software that outputs audio like games, videos and other browsers.

Additionally, the headset will also disconnect from Google Meet links, but only after several minutes of working fine. The headset does not disconnect if playing audio from Facebook Messenger or Whatsapp Web tabs.

All I need to do to reproduce the problem is to have the headset connected through Bluetooth and try to play audio from a streaming website, such a Youtube, Spotify, Twitch or Netflix. Maybe the first video will work well, but as soon as I click any other video the problem becomes consistent.

Reproduces how often:

Every single time.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10 Home version 1903.
[Version 1.9.72 Chromium: 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit)]

Additional Information:
I’ve tried enabling “All fingerprint attempts allowed.” No effect.
The shields don’t specify anything being stopped whenever the headset crashes. Tried with and without shields on, no difference.
