I'm trying to achieve better quality for remote communications. Thus, I'm trying to use a high quality headset for Skype calls.
The problem is, when connecting a headset to Android phone (both of them have HD voice support), the sound quality is very limited, i.e. much worse than Skype gives via the same phone's speaker & microphone.
- When I listen to music from phone using headset via bluetooth, the quality is good.
- When I use USB dongle (which is provided for headset with UC support, and appearing as audio device in system) for Skype with my laptop, the quality is good.
In all cases, I was using WiFi (NOT mobile data). I was using Skype call testing service for all tests.
Is there some way to force codec or bluetooth profile to enable HD voice with Android for headset?
