[Q] Galaxy Note 3 Headphones Issue
I used some really old iPhone headphones on my Note 3 the first day I had it, last week. I haven't had an iPhone since 2010, so I am talking super old and beaten to death. They worked fine.
I only mention this because I've read that some older headsets are not compatible with the S4 and Note 3.
Then I paired them with a pair of ARCTIC P253BT Bluetooth Stereo Headphones. The pairing worked, in theory. The phone and headphones seemed to think they were connected.
But all I got for audio was beeps from the headphones when it connected and the phone would play at the normal, holding-to-ear volume -- even when I clicked the button for headphones and jacked up the volume in Bluetooth Settings. This did not shock me because they are cheap headphones.
Later, I tried to use the Aux jack in my car -- no dice. Phone just acted like it didn't have headphones in.
Tried the old iPhone headphones again, phone acted like it did not have headphones in. I figured I at least had those.
Restarted -- same issue.
I realize this is a very low-level question for this forum. I have yet to ROM the phone and will probably wait until TouchWiz finally beats me down.
Part of the problem is that I had been rolling with a Nexus 4 on CM 10.2, I've been running CM for a year over multiple devices and I've never had a Samsung device.
So I just feel like I don't know how to solve anything. I realize asking for TouchWiz advice is like Yankees ownership asking Red Sox fans for advice, but I am taking a shot.
