Seems like the volume control button on my bluetooth headset is broken, is there any way to change the bluetooth volume directly on the phone? I am on Android 4.1.2, just in case it's relevant. I found settings to change the normal front speaker volume, but nothing for the bluetooth volume.


See if this helps. I am not sure though:

Settings >> Sound >> Volumes

If this doesn't help try this Bluetooth Volume app. This should do it.

And you are on Android 4.2?! WHAT??! AFAIK as of now 4.1 Jelly Bean is the latest... And 4.2 was supposed to launch in tomorrow's Google event. (The event is apparently cancelled) How come you are already on 4.2?

  • Sorry, I am on 4.1.2, I always mix this up ;-) – stefan.at.wpf Oct 28 '12 at 17:16

    Unfortunately no BT options in the mentioned menu ): – stefan.at.wpf Oct 28 '12 at 17:17
  • Does changing media volume there helps? – Suraj Bajaj Oct 28 '12 at 17:20
  • Thanks, but no it does not help, it also doesn't change to a lower volume when BT volume is changed during e.g. a SIP call. I noted that on a normal call I can change the bluetooth volume using the buttons on the phone, that's how I got maximum BT volume back. problem for the moment is, that I have to make a normal call to increase my BT volume, annoying :D – stefan.at.wpf Oct 28 '12 at 18:06
  • I have updated answer with an app link. See if it helps. – Suraj Bajaj Oct 29 '12 at 7:03

No way change your Bluetooth device or repair because volume up down is separated you can adjust phone volume or Bluetooth headset volume. When Bluetooth device volume is zero then phone volume increase you can't hear.
