    I bought a pair of bluetooth wireless headphones. Everything works fine, except for one small detail: it seems that the touch controls are too sensitive. Since I never use them and they just get in my way, is there any way to disable them?

    Headphones brand: AUKEY EP-T28
    Android version: 6.0

    Thanks in advance

    Not familiar with them, or any bluetooth headphones, at all.

    But, I do use bluetooth speakers of multiple types.

    What I have found is that there are differences in how the controls work depending on the speaker and/or device.

    For instance- I have a small, portable speaker that when used on one device, it is best to turn the volume all the way up on the speaker itself and to then control the volume with the device.

    This same speaker, however, when used with a different device, will not allow separate controls like that.
    If I bring the volume up on the speaker, it automatically brings up the volume of the device- and visa versa.

    Also, different devices have different options for bluetooth, and these can be hidden away inside your developer options.

    If you have not enabled developer options on your device, you can do a quick search for how to do so, or we can give you the general gist of it here.

    Also, if you don't know already, on the devices that I deal with, the volume for bluetooth devices is a separate volume (only accessible when bluetooth is connected) and so does not affect the volume of plug in headphones, the built in speaker, or any other sound option.
    (Of course, your device may vary in this regard, but I have not seen one that did yet.)

    Don't know the Aukey headphones. I've got Bose and Sony wireless headphones, and Huawei Freebuds, and the controls on those can all by configured with their respective manufacturer support apps, including disabling the controls completely.

    Maybe Aukey does an app to configure their EP-T28 headphones, for the same?

    BT headphone and speaker remote controls are done via the BT Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) which works with the BT Advanced Audio Distribution Profile, that streams the stereo audio. And I don't think the AVRCP can be disabled or configured separately, not without a specific app from the headphone or speaker manufacturer, like Sony or Bose makes, or maybe there's a setting in your particular media player?

Bluetooth audio device widget

Bluetooth audio device widget Forum


If you want to listen to music, you have to go to settings, wireless, bluetooth and connect/disconnect your audio speaker? It's complicated and annoying. I have a better solution. One click on widget to connect your Bluetooth audio device and play Spotify without going into the settings menu. Bluetooth icon on widget signalizes state of connection. Blue icon - connected, gray icon - change of state (connecting/disconnecting). You can slightly adjust the widget size in app settings or directly on screen 1x1, 1x2 etc.. The app supports A2DP and Headset profile, audio devices like portable speakers, sound bars, handsfree etc. . In the App is device supported profile indicate by small icon in right top corner. Note icon for A2DP - stream high quality audio (music) or phone icon for calls. For supported devices is on widget displayed the battery level (needs Android 8.1 and above). You can also save the volume levels of different Bluetooth devices. After connect the App restores saved volume level. How to Start:
1. Pair your audio device (A2DP, Handsfree) in android settings 2. Add widget for your selected device Highlighted features:
✔️ Easy connect/disconnect ✔️ Info about connected profiles ✔️ Battery status (Apple Airpods support in next update) ✔️ Customization - colors, image, transparency, size ✔️ Open App after connect ✔️ Disable Bluetooth adapter after disconnect Bluetooth device ✔️ Set volume level after connect Bluetooth device ✔️ Double click for set active device (Android 10 only) If you are happy with my App, please take a minute to write review or give me rating. If not, feel free to contact me. I'm sure we can solve it :-)
