Earbuds are the new fashion statement in tech world. Most of the people that own a smartphone love to use a pair of wireless earbuds. People with iPhone like to flex their air pods whereas for the android counterpart, there are a lot of wireless earphones or simply buds to enjoy your song without tangling in wires.
The concept of wireless earphones started when Apple ditched the 3.5 mm headphone jack starting from the iPhone 7. The idea was first criticized, but later on every major smartphone companies adopted the idea because Apple is the trend setter and to get rich of course. They can sell their own wireless earphones and make a ton of money because unlike the wired earphones, the compatibility of wireless earphones of the same company is way better with phone of same company. And now aside from Apple, smartphone companies like Samsung, One Plus, Xiaomi, Oppo, etc. sell their own wireless earphones which I simply like to call earbuds.
Even though the idea was criticized in it’s early period, people love wireless earphones as there’s no problem with tangling, storing them is not an issue as they come in a box and sound quality has also improved. Also, the synchronization is also not bad if the earbud is from same company as your smartphone.
How Does Earbuds Issue Arise?
As said earlier, synchronization is not a problem between earbuds and smartphone from same company. The problem actually arise when you save yourself a few bucks and buy a cheap earbuds or use third party earbuds. And buying cheap earbuds is not essentially a bad thing because earbuds from major companies can cost you a hell lot of money.
So, the problem I realized was with some third party buds, you won’t able to control the volume as you would like. For example the volume would raise to either maximum or zero. It would be 0 at lowest volume and if you increase volume by just one step, it would go to maximum.
Since the rich folks with an iPhone will never bother buying any third party buds, this is somewhat an Android issue. Since every problem has a solution, I’ll present you solution to this problem as well and don’t worry my friends, it’s way easy than you imagine. So let’s head to the good part where we can solve stuffs.
Solution to the earbud issue
I’ll divide solution into various parts with mini steps and if you follow these steps, the problem will be solved in few minutes. So let’s start with first parts:
Part One: Turn On the Developer Options
To turn on developer options on follow following mini steps:
- Open the settings on your phone. You can find it in menu or just use quick access by sliding your skin from the top.
- Click on About phone option that you’ll see somewhere in bottom part.
- Go to Software Information and you’ll see an option called Build number.
- Click on Build number 5/6 times, the Developer Option will turn on. You’ll see something like “Developer option has been turned on”.
Note: I’m referring these steps on the basis of One UI of Samsung, the position of Build number might slightly differ but you’ll surely find it inside About Phone Option. If your phone has search option in settings, you can directly search for build number.
Part 2: Fixing the issue
Congrats on completing the first part. In this part, you will solve the wireless earbuds problem for good and in few easy steps.
- Get back from the build number and go to Developer Options.
- Inside Developer Options, scroll down till you find Disable absolute volume.

Doing this not only solves your bluetooth earbuds issue but also the volume related issue on your phone with any other bluetooth audio devices.
