Calls using earphones are WAY too loud!

    I had this issues with my 6 and now with my 7 Pro. Call volume over my (WIRED, not bluetooth) earphones is way way way too loud. To the point that I won't even use them. I'll wait until I'm somewhere that I can use the normal phone just so I won't have to deal with it. Does OnePlus think everyone is deaf? I don't have this problem with Whatsapp, just real actual phone calls.

    I found another thread saying to check if hearing aid compatibility is on, and it's not. I've used several different earphones, and since this was a problem on my 6 too I'm pretty sure it's on OnePlus' side.

    When taking a call press the volume buttons to change the volume.

    Seriously? Like with every cell phone I've had since the 90s? I can just change the volume? ...

    it is rather loud even on the lowest volume. I don't remember that being the case on my 7 pro.

    I like it being loud. On my previous phone I could barely hear the other person talking while using max supported volume. I can now turn the volume down if I have people around me and I don't want them to listen.

    "Loud" is fine if it's adjustable. "Loud" when you CANNOT make it lower is utter bullshit. Most likely I won't get another OnePlus after I inevitably break this one.

    Check if you have enabled hearing aid compatibility in accessibility settings.

    I have this issue as well, but this post is specifically about wired headsets.

    I wouldn't take a call in a noisy environment. It's rude to the person on the other end of the phone. Not to mention it's rude as hell to everyone else around if you're shouting into the phone so the other person can hear you. I would step out of the area I'm in, text the person that I'll call them later, or just ignore it and call the person back when it's convenient.

    When tuning volume using physical device button, you can tap on settings to adjust the volume you want.
    You may also go to your accessory bluetooth settings to toggle absolute volume settings.

    This doesn't make sense. The volume I want is the volume that the physical button turns down. It doesn't turn down the volume enough. That's the point. Are you saying I have to do both?

    Also, as I've mentioned in another post on this thread, this is in reference to wired headsets. I haven't tried bluetooth for phone calls so I don't know whether or not that's an issue.
