Thanks a lot, @ValdikSS
I mean flipping just a switch in bluetooth settings to transform the sound to HD in SBC? Wow!
I think you need to put this info on top of the first post for kiddos asking you to patch their ROM:
"Lineage OS 15.1 and above builds from 31 March 2019 all have this patched in. Enable HD Audio: SBC for individual Bluetooth device in settings."

Done.

is there a patch for Lineage 17? Now that android 10 custom roms are popping up, this might be of great help.

No, not yet. It's been ported by other Lineage developers and waiting for my approval. I'll test it this weekend.

I have seen the open patches, finger crossed if this gets integrated soon.

So I've bought a new neckband Bluetooth headphone "Wings Glide. It is a well designed product at a very pocket friendly price(best at it's price). I was hoping that it would support HD Audio - SBC, as It does to my Blaupunkt BT51 speaker, but unfortunately it doesn't. Maybe due to BT 4.2?

Can anything be done for it to support? It uses fairly simple Bluetooth module, nothing fancy such as custom welcome/goodbye sound, just beep.

Here is a link if anyone wanna checkout
https://www.amazon.in/Wings-Neckband...s+glide&sr=8-1

Please at least can you check if it can? It is such a nice product.

thank you for your work. but just a single wish: it should be possible to select SBC HD even if other codecs are supported by the receiver. specifically talking about those realtek 5.0 TWS headphones which do have SBC & AAC, but SBC HD option is not avalible in LOS 16 if AAC is supported. but SBC HD > AAC. thx

The patchset needs rework. I've tested it some weeks ago and it does not work as intended. I'll take a look into it in my free time.

There is a patch for that on Russian forum 4pda.ru, but the author of the patch doesn't seem to want to integrate it into mainline LineageOS for some reason.

You can install an overlay that will override SBC over AAC.
I have a QCY T2C and I have this so that SBC will be used.
