Bluetooth technology is a standard that has been in use for years, to connect your phone to a variety of accessories. Currently, there are Bluetooth headsets in different price ranges. But what determines the quality of the audio is the codec they use to receive the information that will be converted into sound. The same is true for Android phones, which allow you to easily switch between the codecs available. Most commonly you will find phones and headsets that use SBC (Bluetooth high compression and low-quality audio). Then there is the Qualcomm aptX codec complex. These are the most popular as they offer high-quality and stable connections and low latency levels. This is a very important point to take into account when playing video games because there must be no delay between the audio from your phone and that received by your headphones. In this post, we will show you how to identify which Bluetooth codecs are compatible with your Android phone.
Go to your phone’s settings and go to the “About phone” section. The specific name may vary.
Then go into the software options and locate “Build number“.
After that, repeatedly tap on “Build number” until the developer options are activated. You may have to enter the phone lock code.
Then go to the newly activated developer options and scroll down to “Bluetooth Audio Codec”. There you will see all the ones included with your phone.
Knowing which audio codecs are compatible with your phone can be a deciding factor when buying a headset, so you will be able to determine which ones will give you the best quality and fit your budget. Thanks for reading. Bye!
