Default What are these icons in notification bar?

Really confused on the icon on the left, I'm guessing it's some kind of headset on notification? Not sure what the one on the right is either. Also if anyone could provide steps to remove them that'd be great

Not sure about the one on the left but the one on the right is the NFC icon. You can turn NFC off in settings and the icon will go away.

Alright, figured out the one on the right is NFC. Still at a loss for the other one though.

Thanks Magnum, now for the mystery icon on the left. It looks like some kind of headset icon and it's been bothering me for weeks haha

Is that somewhere under accessibility or sound?

Edit: found it, settings>call>hearing aid. Thanks for the help!

Neither.

Open phone app (like making a call) menu/settings.

About halfway down you'll see "Hearing Aid". Unchecked it.

Should be gone after that.

Edit: Happy to help.
