Ever since Pie came to the Max Pro M2 model, I have been experiencing this bad audio quality over bluetooth. To be more specific, I have a JBL Charge 3 and Haylou GT1 TWS earphones which are supposed to be crisp sounding with the hardware they already possess. Its just that idk why the mids and lows are quite muffled when I use bluetooth for audio on these devices, on the developer options also, the options for Qualcomm Aptx always keep resetting upon exit. The same goes for even me having to enable disable absolute volume (It enhances the audio for me but the sound is still muffled-sounding nontheless)

Fix this asap please together with the battery issue I've been crying out loud for in the past few weeks in the forums.

  • Up for this!😭, i wish it can be louder than custom rom does.
  • Hi evankyleperez,

    Is the problem when the music plays to bass notes, the volume sounds lower?

    Could you tell me which app(and its version) you are using to listen to music?
    Does this problem appear on every app?
    Could you provide me with a music link that has this problem?

    Does it happen on wired headset?
    Please help to confirm,thank you:)

    Hi evankyleperez,

    The bass is suppressed-sounding in some way. Yes,the volume does sound lower even with "Disable absolute volume" switched on. My mainstream app of choice for streaming music is Spotify (Version 8.5.26.1031) . Its also not just a music link but it happens for every song and video played across all apps. When it comes to the concern of wired headphones, of course it does not happen with that scenario because audio through bluetooth is the concern here.
  • evankyleperez, you are not conducting the music quality test correctly. Take a high-quality FLAC track and a good player like Poweramp, and listen. My JBLs sound great through bluetooth.

    I understand your method, the thing is that I use Spotify and it does not have a native equalizer support. The audio through bluetooth sound in my JBL speaker sounds great but as i've said the sound is quite muffled in some way. Spotify streams music with 320kbps with the highest option available. Im not sure if its pure AAC though

    So I'm talking about this. Who knows what there in Spotify, they twisted with the settings and how much compression they gave. Try installing the equalizer separately. There are a lot of them on the android market.

    The Bluetooth audio codec is stuck on SBC,this might be one of the culprits.
