bluetooth – Can I prevent notifications from being forwarded to my watch during Do Not Disturb?

I have a Pixel 3 phone running Android 11, paired with a Garmin Venu watch. The Pixel can forward notifications to my watch via Bluetooth, with per-app notification controls specified in the Garmin connect app. I’ve noticed that whenever I set my phone on Do Not Disturb, I still get notifications forwarded to my watch. Is there a way on the phone to prevent notifications from being forwarded to my watch while in DND?

Bluetooth headphones unable to hear audio from both Discord and a game

My headphones, the Skullcandy Crusher Wirelesses, aren’t playing audio from both my Discord call and the game I’m playing. This is pretty annoying since I want to be in a call with some people, but the game itself relies on sound. I got these headphones to avoid all the cables – I don’t have a sound-card in my PC.
Help is appreciated. I couldn’t find many posts regarding this topic.

Windows 10 to android bluetooth, windows say paired and connected, android says paired but cant connect

Trying to link s20+5g to windows 10 desktop via bluetooth. Have tried this on two different machines and received the same result. They pair fine, then when I try to connect them windows say they connected, but the phone says it cannot connect and will not do anything with the bluetooth connection. Is there any settings I can change on the phone (in the developer settings maybe?) or the desktop to try and fix this? I do not have root access on the phone (US snapdragon unfortunately). The bluetooth driver is updated to the latest version, and I have updated windows to the latest version in my attempts to fix this.

bluetooth – Turn off headphone remote controls

I bought a pair of bluetooth wireless earphones. Everything works fine, except for one small detail: it seems that the touch controls are too sensitive.
Since I never use them and they just get in my way, is there any way to disable them?

Thanks in advance

linux – Headphones with embedded micro that supports both 2.4GHz wireless and bluetooth

Hello I’m looking for headphones that include all these features (bassically TV headphones that can do bluetooth headphones too) :

  • Base to put on for charging
  • Embedded microphone, or slot for plugging one
  • Base communicates via 2.4GHz wireless communnication (like the gaming headsets)
  • Headphones are usable via bluetooth for smartphone calls in outdoors

Optionnal great features would be:

  • Base plug supported in linux
  • Remote controller on the headphones (start/pause, previous/next/volume up and down)
  • suited for large ears (ear size 7*4cm)
  • can handle 2 different bluetooth sources
  • can handle a bluetooth source and a 2.4GHz wireless source

It’s been a week that I’m searching for a model that matches these specs but couldn’t find anything, do you guys have something in mind?

Regards

audio – Bluetooth headset sound crackling in hands-free mode on Windows 10

I bought Bluetooth headset (Philips SHB3075) which I paired with my laptop (OS: Windows 10) but I’ve got a problem with sound quality.
The headset can work in two modes: Stereo and Hands-free. In Stereo mode quality of sound is good but I can’t use microphone. In Hands-free mode the sound is crackling so much that I can’t understand what other people saying when e.g. I have a Skype call. But in this mode I can use microphone.

How can I “repair” sound quality in Hands-free mode to have sound not crackling?
For listening music I can use Stereo mode but I also need working Hands-free mode to have possibility to use microphone.
On smartphone this issue not appears.

I would be grateful for help.

Bluetooth headsets briefly connect to iPhone but then get disconnected

Two BH-M20/BH-M20C headsets are able to briefly connect to my iPhone 6 via Bluetooth. I can see the connection in the Settings | Bluetooth | My Devices.

However they both get disconnected within 10 seconds. These headsets both work fine when connected to my MacBook.

Why are they getting disconnected and what might be the way to resolve this issue?

audio – Bluetooth headphones disconnect as soon as I try to use their microphones

Recently, both my Bose QC35 II and AirPods stopped working on my mac.

As soon as I open anything that uses the mic, whatever window that is freezes and then the headphone/airpods disconnect. Even if its just the sound settings.

I already tried removing/adding things again and even reset the bluetooth module. The later seems to have fixed the issue for a while, but it came back after a couple of days.

I looked into blueetoothd and coreaudiod logs, and all I see when I open the sound settings input/output tabs is errors…
