Default Bluetooth Audio Volume

With my phone connected to my car stereo via bluetooth, the volume seems considerably low compared to my rezound, which was even lower than my thunderbolt. Phone and deck are both maxed out.

Tried various EQ apps, not much difference..

On stock rom, not rooted.

Anyone else have this issue?

Are you on the OTA update?

My Bluetooth headset has very low volume which has been reported by others. I was hoping this was fixed in the OTA.

You're not the only one. I've spent most of my time in the Android Central forums and same issue reported there as well. Update seems to have improved connecting but quality hasn't changed much. Personally speaking my Plantronics Voyager worked great on my Samsung Fascinate but on the DNA ... well let's just say a toaster would do a better job with audio.

What Bluetooth software is in your car? I believe the droid DNA uses 4.0 and updating your Bluetooth software in your car via usb might help ya

Can't say I've had the same problem with Korean car head units, Ford Sync units, LG HBS 700 headphones, and an older Jawbone Prime. All have worked fine, and in the case of the LG headphones, I have to operate them both at significantly lower than full volume on both.

Are any of the custom roms better with this issue?

No.

I've tried replacing the HTC BT drivers with both stock drivers and CAF drivers and neither made any difference that I could tell.

Dsb9938 pulled an alternative user space stack from somewhere and that didn't change anything for me either.
