Re: Bluetooth volume too loud, volume step 1 is silent

Hey,

 

Aha ok, well then it's like you said; a Sony Xperia related problem..

 

Either way it's pretty bad that a basic volume function behaves like this on a flagship smartphone (I'm using z3).. :p.. it's 2015

Hi Quester

 

As I have a Xperia Z Tablet, I only have Clear Phase in my Sound Settings!

I disabled it... No change in behavior...

 

The removing and pairing again in Bluetooth I already tried... Same problem...

 

Thanks

David

 


One user with Xperia Z3 did it and worked for him, He unpaired, restarted, then paired again. Try with a restart in between and check.

Still the same!

 

The first level is to loud!

Looks like there are not enough stages of volume!

 

I hope for a system update from Sony!

Kindly try this last thing: Go to Settings -> Apps -> All -> Audio settings -> Clear data, unpair your speaker, restart phone, pair again and test.

Hey,

 

It's not going to work. This needs to be developed and improved by Sony techs.

Re: Bluetooth volume too loud, volume step 1 is silent

I tried this and it worked (using a Z1 with JBL Flip 2). BUT the next time I used the speaker the volume went back to being to loud again... The speaker works very well with a Galaxy S3 and Nexus 5.

 

Is there any proper solution in sight or any app that might solve the problem?

Re: Bluetooth volume too loud, volume step 1 is silent

I have nexus 5 and nexus 7 and i have this same exact problem.

android version 5.0, 5.1, 5.1.1 and M developper preview 1&2.

 

It seems to me not an xperia problem.

 

I have Sony SBH20 handsfree.

 

Maybe the problem is handsfree and not phone?

Hi!
I think it is a bit unnessesary, but this kind of app solved this instant for me

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=opotech.finevolumev2&hl=en

 

Not sure what is causing it, but a 3rd party app helpedme to get the volume to the proper level.

 

I have experienced this quite many times, as I have several BT headsets and speakers ... annoying ...
