    My OnePlus 5T is unable to detect my wireless headphones. I refreshed many times but it's still not finding my headphones. What can I do?

    I was having all kinds of Bluetooth issues. I went to Settings/Advanced/Bluetooth Audio Codec and selected aptX HD. Then I rebooted the phone and everything was fine with Bluetooth. I hope it works for you.

    Yes, latency in BT is also a problem big time! You can tell if you watch a video: lipsync is way off!

    I also can't connect with any of my wireless headphones. Is this a common problem with the OnePlus 5t? Phone is only a week old is worth sending it back?

    I experienced the same. Like others here, rebooting my 5T seemed to fix the issue. Although there does need to be a longer term fix.

    For anyone who needs to try the same you can reboot by:

    Pressing power off

    Once the device is off, you then need to press power on and the volume down button for a few seconds.
    Then enter your password and select the option to reboot

    What I did in my case was I forget my bluetooth headphone in my OP5T and reconnect it again.

    My OnePlus 5T won't connect directly to my Subaru Forester Bluetooth. I have to connect it manually each and every time. What's worse is phone call connectivity. The voice and connection is really bad. This never happens with any other phone that I connect my car with. Please help.

    I'm having the issue where my 5t can't see any bluetooth devices now. It saw a ton at first, but once I toggled BT it lost off of them. I can confirm that restarting the device seems to have resolved the issue.

    I was told you try a soft reset for fixing my bluetooth problem, dies anyone know how you do this on a T5? Orde is a hard reset(I think as explained earlier) the only option?

    I am having the same problem here. Can't connect my car through BT.
    There is a message telling me pin was wrong, while no keyboard pop out for me to input anything.

    Good afternoon,

    Indeed, OnePlus 5T potentially may have some software issues with regards to Bluetooth.
    Although it connects flawlessly, latency in first 5 minutes is unbearable on a distance of less than a meter. Closing processes, reconnecting Bluetooth, changing codec do not solve the issue, unfortunately. Reboot works, but a bit of inconvenience most of the time.
    Issue existed with all Bluetooth audio systems, including two headsets and two car audio systems.

    Weird. I don't encounter this kind of problem.Mine connect automatically everytime I turn on my wireless headset. For me it's effortless.
