  1. Issue with bluetooth sound volume


    Hello,


    I use my steel series 3 bluetooth, everything work but for one irritating details:

    Windows lower the volume on my headset when in bluetooth. The issue isn't from the headset, the sound volume is perfect when its bluetooth is paired with my phone and not my Windows 10 computer.

    This is particularly obnoxious since that headset specifically allows for two sound source and I use it to be on discord at the same time than playing on my xbox. With the new bluetooth being way quieter the games drown the voices. I also have tested and the issue is from Windows since I have the same lower sound effect regardless of the app or software I try.

    I hope someone has an idea for a fix, the sound and bluetooth menus in windows have been unhelpful.


    Thank you in advance,

    Storm

    :)

    Bluetooth headphone sound volume keeps changing.

    I have a relatively new Bluetooth Pulse Echo headphone set and an Acer Aspire 3 notebook that has Windows 10 O/S. When I use the headphones with the notebook in wireless mode the sound volume alternates between normal and very low. I have run Windows Bluetooth fault finder and disabled sound enhancements to no effect. The headphones work fine in conjunction with my iPad however.
    Could anyone suggest a solution for this problem please?

    Bluetooth Speaker No sound Issues

    Since you seem to be able to connect to the speaker via bluetooth, the next thing I would check is what Audio Playback device is set as the default. To check this, navigate to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound and you will see a box that looks like this:

    You should see the connected bluetooth speaker listed on the playback device list. Right click on the device and select "Set as default device". You can also right click the device and select "test" to send a test chime to the speaker. If you right click the device and select "Properties", there may be a tab for "Levels" which allows you to set the volume output from the computer (not sure whether bluetooth devices have this option). Lastly, ensure the volume on the speaker itself is loud enough to hear.
