Hello. I change phones alot and have noticed that some phones(all android) have better bluetooth playback than others.

I had a oneplus 7 pro before this phone and the bluetooth quality to my truck was great and had no issues but with this phone the highs sounds scratchy or like if the speaker is bad. But if i connect it with a wire connection it sounds great. Everything with the 2 phones is the same. On both i was using the galaxy watch and pretty much the same apps. On a previous phone the note 8 i had the same issue but it was a different car. Seems like its the way samsung handles bluetooth.
Has anyone had this issue? If so was there a fix?
Thanks

The only two things I think about is the codec used that may be different across devices, and the Bluetooth settings that sync the phones volume with the headset (the differences are noticeable).

Since no DAC is used in Bluetooth, I don't think it can comes from them, for a same headset.

On Samsung phones you should run the adapt sound process. Try this.

I tried with the sync volume off too and no improvement.
I looked for the adapt sound and my phone doesn't have that setting. Or is it something different?

It's in Sounds and Vibration 》 Advanced Sound settings 》Sound Quality and effects 》 Adapt sound

You have to do this in a quiet place and ensure to answer honestly. If you can't hear the beeping press no.

After doing this the sound quality is night and day difference.

I've had issues sometimes with audio being piped through the "Calls" Bluetooth channel versus the "Audio" channel so worth checking as the quality is obviously night and day.

I also like enabling Dolby Atmos on my Note 10+ for music so worth playing with too. Additionally, I recently found Samsung's Sound Assistant app which let's you customize a bunch of sound settings so worth checking out as well:

Is there an easy way to tell if the audio is going through the call channel?

Easiest is probably just uncheck calls in your phones BT settings for your truck (and make sure audio is enabled). If the sound is still not great then this isn't the issue.
