Notification Sounds Not Coming Through Headphones

    Hi everyone,

    I feel like I'm missing something obvious but I can't work it out:
    • OnePlus 7T - Oxygen OS 10.0.6
    • OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2
    • Settings | Earphone mode | Notification ringtone in earphones set to 'Always'
    • Alert slider set to 'Ring'
    Despite this, whenever I receive a notification (in any app) the sound is played through the phone speaker, not the headphones. Is there anything else I need to set?

    All advice very gratefully received.

    Thank you! :)

    Well in my case I have Skull candy earphones which doesn't receive notification sound and it is coming through regular speaker.

    But with headphones ( Sennheiser 4.40 HD) it does sound in the headphones and from the speakers too.

    It is like if you used headphones or earphones, and somehow you're not wearing them and if notification comes, you should be notified.

    Thanks for your reply @Cosmos_NT

    I've done some more testing and with wired headphones connected (via a USB C adapter) I get a headphone icon in the notification bar at the top and the 'Notification ringtone in earphones' settings is respected. Perhaps it's just a problem with Bluetooth headphones, although you said you do hear notification sounds with the Sennheiser 4.40 HDs (and they're Bluetooth). All very strange.

    Can anyone from OnePlus comment please? Should this be logged as a bug?
