Hello,

I think this question has been talked about in another threads/forums.
but I can't find any thread that matches my problem.

To my problem:

When I listen to spotify(using bluetooth headset Sony SBH50) and receive a notification or use TTS, the bluetooth sound get maxed out.
I can't lower the sound until the notification//TTS sound is finished.

It started after last update of spotify

TS done:
Tested another headset (MW600) and I get the same problem, just it has it's own sound settings so I don't get deaf.
If I don't use BT headset I see that the sound get bumped up abit too but not maxed.
Inactivated tasker, same problem.
I have resettet the SBH50 headset and updated firmware.

Tested a mp3 file in xiialive and total commander(music player).
The music get a bit muted during the notification and then back to the same volume level. So sound is not maxed.

Tested Audible and it has a pause function on notification but no maxed out volume.

Solution / workaround

Solution: ? or to get Spotify fix the problem if it's a bug in the app.

Workaround: Was to change settings files to hard set the max BT volume to 50% of what is max today. If it can be done.


System:
Nexus 5
Android 4.4.2
Factory ROM
Rooted
Uses Tasker, don't have any sound alterations tasks.
Used xposed and GravityBox but exposed is deactivated.

TIA
Daniel

Only good side, is that this forces me to listens to some books I have put on hold for a year.

Same problem. Extremely annoying. Imagine the situation, casually using bluetooth earphones while shopping, running, commuting & whatnot. And suddenly the music volume maxes out because a notification eg. for a hangout msg or sms goes off. Any ideas how to cure? Re-route bt audio?

Here's something to try:

with the BT headset connected, go to Settings -> Sound -> Volumes and change the notification volume there (again, WITH headset connected)

This should then set the notification volume for the BT headset without changing the media volume.

I use a BT headset all the time with A2DP (LG Tone+) and have never had this problem because I set the individual volume levels as force of habit the first time I connected to N5...

Hope it helps

Hi, tried that but it didn't help.
I have read that ppl have talked about a BT bug, but I have looked into it.
