Sony Xperia Z3 + Smart Headset Pro | Messaging Crash

Hi. I just got the Smart Headset Pro MW-1 to be able to receive calls while cycling. I've installed apps to allow my phone running Lollipop to push messages and notifications to the MW-1. As recommended in a forum I read, I shut down and powered both devices up after pairing and after the automatic update from the phone to the headset. Below are observations made I hope someone can help with :

1. I wanted to use TTS to let the device notify me if I received an email or a text message. It's working, but the voice volume is so low is it's useless on the road. I was using the stock Google TTS engin, by the way. Also, I tried incincreasing the voice volume manually (a volume bar appears really quickly on the phone when a text arrives and the phone notifies me) by triggering the volume bar to appear and sliding to all the way to the highest setting, but it only affects the notification being read, meaning the volume change reverts back to the original setting. I noticed that the TTS volume is set to about 10% of the volume scale, and at the very end of a voice notification, the volume goes up really fast, making the last second of the voice as loud as the media volume. I think something is overriding the TTS volume. I disabled the TTS feature add iit's useless to me in its current state.

2. When I read a text message on the MW-1, the messaging app crashes. I'm using the stock messaging app of the phone as well.

Is this a firmware issue On the headset or a lollipop issue on the phone?
