If You want to hear music on your bluetooth device Your bluetooth device pairs perfectly with your android phone. It works only with calls, media still plays on your device speakers. BTMono is a great tool that suits your requirement. It will allow you to simply turn ON media streaming and you are good to go. Remember that it is free and you need to ...

I use an Android specified Headset with 3-button for my Nexus. Works brilliant. Not only does it deliver 3-button action, but also very good sound and a really hard hitting bass. Anyone enjoying Rock or Electronica will not stop listening ;-) The headset is specifically made for Android's lower voltage spec from Google and will NOT work on an iphone (the ...

Try Mono Bluetooth Router. Its free version has more feautures than BTMono.

Thanks to an app that turns an Android phone into a more universal Bluetooth device, it is possible to control a PS3 with your Android phone as though it were a Bluetooth remote control. The connection allows the phone to be used as a virtual keyboard for entering text, and it even has a touchscreen trackpad for moving the cursor in the PS3's web browser. ...

See my answer to a similar question - the problem is that within the Bluetooth AD2P profile (for stereo quality audio) Android phones aren't designed to be a "sink" (a receiver of media) only a source. You're right in that this is a limitation of the Bluetooth stack on your phone, but so far the info I've found says that trying to alter the stack comes with ...

I believe this is impossible. The headset requires power from the device. Android versions before 3.1 state that they can not support powering the usb bus. From the developer guide: When the Android-powered device is in host mode, it acts as the USB host and powers the bus. When the Android-powered device is in USB accessory mode, the connected USB ...

Did you update to Android Jelly Bean OS? Samsung Jelly Bean OS doesn't support this feature. Source.

I have a moto X also and I recently bought the QC20. Commands with main button did not work (neither did the micro btw) so I installed Klitch Control and still it did not work. Then, I looked around and changed the audio settings. I turned the audio effects off, and then it started working... (why? don't know) I uninstalled Klitch Control and it's still ...

I've found that it's an issue of Skype application. E.g. Google Hangouts gives good sound quality with and without bluetooth headset both. I've filed a bug report here: https://community.skype.com/t5/Android/Forced-low-quality-voice-with-bluetooth-headsets/td-p/4366926

I procured a second wired headset, and it works with the Maven. However, it does not work with the Galaxy S5. I got out my multimeter and tested each connection on each headset, and found that they are wired differently. The ZTE Maven and my new headset use the CTIA/AHJ standard, and the Galaxy S5 and my old headset use the OMTP standard. The difference ...

Android has two standards OMTP and CTIA/AHJ, whether it is a headset only or a headset with built in mic. Details in answer Why external microphone doesnt work on some Androids (like LG G5) (this likely covers the issue you had with iPhone) OMTP is practically extinct and all headphones with or without mic are CTIA. This distinction is useful to know just ...

I faced a similar situation. Following steps worked for me. Some of the steps might be redudent. 1) restart your phone 2) reset network settings (Setting> back and restore ) 3) change the phone bluetooth name. (I assume this is the solution) 4) set the bluetooth device in pairing mode (long press the power key). And it worked for me. Probably, executing ...

After removing the pairing from the phone, the phone won't be able to see the headset in its normal mode any more. To connect to it again, you need to pair the phone with the headset again. To make the headset visible again, you need to put it into a special "pairing mode" which makes it visible to all devices for a short time. The way of doing this varies ...

Solution: Factory reset. Finally, after doing all the necessary backups using different tools like adb, Helium(Carbon), Google, Super Backup, I did a factory reset(Soft Reset through the option under Settings > Backup & Restore > Factory Reset) and the speaker phone issue is solved.

I think the OP has already bought a converter and is enjoying the MH1, but in case someone else stumbles upon this, I have Xperia Z2 and an old MH1. I use a Sony Ericsson EC250 adapter. Everything on the MH1, including the mic and all four buttons are working fine. The converter is basically a CTIA to OMTP converter for old phones, but those converters work ...

Personally, I've found software solutions to this kind of thing to be more hassle than they're worth. Do you mind if your devices are physically close to each other? If not, I recommend a cheap hardware solution: 2 x 3.5mm Stereo Male / 3.5mm Stereo Female, 6 inch You could buy a 3.5mm extension cable to give yourself more flexibility if you need your ...

You can use a headset controller app from the playstore (e.g. Jays or Philips Headset or HeadsetButton Controller) to use the "middle button" for that. Might take a few tries to find the correct app (if one doesn't work fine, try another -- I did the same and finally found one working perfectly, see my answer here). I'm not sure if they affect the other two ...

It should work IMO. I have used a standard Galaxy Nexus earphone on my iPod Touch; it could do everything from skipping to record voice etc.

When I switched over to Android I started looking for a three button headset compatible with my phone. I found that there are a couple of brands that do earphones for Android but you usually have to use an App to set the functions for button controls. I love good sound in my ears and probably use my earphones 2-5 hours per day. I have tested a couple, I ...

Is your phone Rooted ? BlueputDroid works with rooted devices only (if you are prepared to root your device then this maybe achieveable with this app) according to this article entitled: How to remotely control your PS3 with Android BlueputDroid Apps Guide written by EHSAN on Feb. 27th 2011. http://topbestfreeapps.com/how-to-remotely-control-your-ps3-with-...

Summary from my comments, as requested, as an answer: There are plenty of other headset controller apps on the playstore if you're worried about the permissions. I tried Jays once, but it only worked partially (in 9 out of 10 tries, I had no luck to adjust the volume -- instead, other actions were triggered, as e.g. pause/play). Having a Philips headset, I ...

My initial research is confusing. Some say that this kind of commands just aren't available on Android. One source says that at least one product (Klipsch S4a (Android), £50-90) actually works as desired when also installing an application from the vendor. As for add-on software to handle the in-cable buttons, HeadsetButton Controller (€2,29, free trial) ...

Most of phones (including Xperia series) does not have an internal FM radio antenna, so they need a wired headset to be inserted, in order to use its wire as antenna. You cannot use FM radio until you plug a wired headset to the phone.

After some further research I think it's not possible. At least on a level where one is not modifying the OS.

You can also try my application to direct non-call audio to BT. Here's is my github link: https://github.com/sauravpradhan/AnySound2BT
