    Anyone get SBC Audio Codec to stop taking over when connected to a AptX enabled device.

    I'm using ATH-M50X BT's that support AptX and AAC over BT 5.0 (Not that it should matter?) and my OnePlus 6 keeps choosing SBC. I've tried to force it to AptX in developer settings but it keeps reverting back to SBC. I've only managed AAC other than SBC. Although I'm not using an iPhone so I'm not that interested in AAC (AAC ≈ SBC).
    I want to listen to my Hi-Res audio tracks over AptX so that they don't get heavily compressed.

    Anyone out there have any luck with 3rd Party devices with AptX support working?

    I've even set AptX to it's optimum settings (48kHz/16bit) when trying to force it across and when I go back to check it's reverted it back to SBC 44.1kHz/16bit.

    It's best not to brute-force the codec settings via the Dev Options. Let the device do its own thing and you'll be happier.
