Galaxy S22 Ultra - Sound: No Bass over bluetooth

First off: huge Samsung fan here. Since the S6 or so I think I've gotten all flagship phones, none skipped. So, when the S22 Ultra came, I had to get it. Every year things get a little better. That is - if you don't regard the sound...

In short: the S22 Ultra has a problem producing bass, over bluetooth. I don't know if it is the same when using an USB-C-to-aux - I think not. Because normally I listen to spotify with android auto - and that works fine. I've got a car with amazing bass - a joy to listen to music. BUT: if I step into my wife's car, where I use bleutooth, the music is completely flat. The bass is lacking, even radio-music has got more bass. In the beginning I thought it was her car, triggering the wrong bluetooth-audio profile or something (it sounds almost like it's still on a phonecall-profile). However, it turns out it's on all bluetooth devices. I just bought a Sony MHX4, specifically because of the bass-oriented sound: FLAT.

I read a lot, I tried a lot (Dolby on/off, experimenting with the Developer setting etc) - nothing. There is something wrong with the bluetooth-audioprofile. For the first time in many years, I found myself overthinking of switching brands, because my S22 Ultra makes my Sony headphones completely unusable 😞

Samsung: please fix this, keep your longtime fans happy!

Its the car that has no base. Let me guess factory fitted headunit with rubbish ĺBluetooth. You may need to get a aftermarket head unit for your wife's car or stick a amp and sub in there if you want base with a standard headunit with rubbish Bluetooth or turn the base up in the headunits audio settings.

Haha, great solution skills there! Trolls will be trolls... 

Both cars have tremendous bass, both have high-end speakersystems. One of the two systems is even praised by hifi enthousiasts for it's superb soundquality with deep rich bass 🤪 (19 speakers driven by a 1400 watt high-class amplifier, all B&W).

The bass, when driven by a correct source, is stomachsickening deep and clean. 

But, maybe more convincing for you: the problem is completely gone when using the S21 or below, or when using the Android Auto connection in one of the two cars (the other car only supports Carplay).
