Final Thoughts

Do note that the higher the bitrate would be the more internet bandwidth it will consume, thus it can lead to higher latency as well. Therefore the best one would be 64 kbps or lower since the audio quality is often way better than in-game voice chat quality.

If you have a good and stable internet connection and your other friends too, then you can definitely set it up to 96 kbps or even 128 kbps, do check if you have latency or not in such a high bitrate if yes, then you can always turn it down for better latency.
