Phone calls w/Bluetooth earbuds: unable to reduce volume

    When I am listening to music thru Bluetooth earbuds and a phone call comes in, the volume is deafening - no matter how low the music volume is.

    Pressing VolumeDown throws the volume control dialog and the indicator tries to move downward - but it keeps spontaneously popping back to max volume.

    It does not seem to be earbud-specific, as the same thing happens on LGs, Ultimate Ears, BlueAnt Pumps, and on my hearing aids.

    Anybody been here?

    Android 9, Note 8.

    huh i just came from a note 8....did not have that issue.

    try it in safe mode just to see if an app or something is interfering with it. you might have to try a factory reset
