    I purchased a set of the LG Tone+ headphones to use both with my tablet and my S4. In reading some articles, I have found that the adapt sound feature on the S4 is designed to help compensate for hearing differences from one ear to the other. Since I am not spring chicken any more, I do know that I have some minor hearing loss (just ask my wife!!) I am wanting to set up adapt sound through the LG headphones, but when I try to start the training portion of the adapt sound it always tells me that I need to connect a set of headphones. Well the LG's are connected and I cannot, for the life of me, make the phone understand that the LG's are headphones. When using them, I can listen to music, do the phone thing, hear notifications ..., but I can't get the adapt sound to recognize them. They are, by far, a superior set of headphones to the plug in ones that I have. The one thing that I did notice is that when I have non-bluetooth headphones plugged in I get the headphone icon in the notification area, but the LG Tone+, when connected, do not show a notification icon.

    Anybody have any ideas? I can tell a difference on my plug in headset with adapt sound, but would really like to set it up using my bluetooth ones.

    Adapt Sound is not compatible with Bluetooth headsets.

    As for the icon in your notification bar, it's an indicator for headphone jack being plugged in, not audio device being connected. So you can only see it when physically placing a jack in your phone.
