bluetooth headphones volume problem after S7 oreo update

First Poster

Wow, this worked great!  I have been having such problems since the update, and this worked like a charm.  I was so disappointed that I couldn't use my headphones anymore.  I was told to unpair everything I own and re-pair, and that didn't work.  It seemed like nothing would work, but this did!  Thank you so much!

You can sort the problem out properly by going to:


Settings > Connections > Bluetooth > [three dots in top right corner] > Media volume sync > Off


Hope this helps.

After updating my S7 to oreo, I can't lower the volume of my bluetooth headphones (JBL E45BT) (even the lowest volume possible is still way too loud). Before the update everything was just working fine. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?

The BT Sync off did it for me too. The Marshall Kilburn suffers from this.



Thankyou So much. EASY when you know how. 🙂

Thanks, Hostet. This worked for me on my new A40. All other answers were not working.

Also great to know how to enter developer mode.
