Unusable Bluetooth volume control

Star II
I am having some issues with the Bluetooth volume control on some devices.
In particular, when connecting to my stereo system, the volume control is very rough, with a single button click increasing/decreasing the volume considerably. This makes finding the wanted volume impossible, as the volume is either too low or too high.
Switching the Bluetooth volume control from Absolute volume (default) to Independent volume fixes the problem for my stereo system, but makes the volume of my earbuds (Beats Fit Pro) and other devices uncontrollable. Therefore, every time I want to connect to another device, I have to first change the mode.
I come from a Samsung phone and never had any similar issues: volume control always worked seamlessly across both (and other) devices. The same goes for all my other audio sources (laptops, tablets, home assistants).
Would be great to be able to set the volume control mode for each device (in the Bluetooth settings).
Basic information:
Model Name: Zenfone 9
Firmware Version: WW_32.2050.2050.34
Rooted or not: No
Frequency of Occurrence: Always


Hey @Lenix243,

This feature is currently not available in the Zenfone 9, however, I have forwarded your feedback to the relevant department.
