    Hello community!
    I want to ask you a question.
    I bought some samsung akg headphones, and i ve noticed that i need to enable otg from settings ( thank you oneplus community i couldnt do it without you). But it turns off after 10 minutes of inactivity.
    My question is: do we have an option that turns otg on automatically, so i dont need to toggle that option like every time i want to use headphones?

    You have turned On the wrong option. It's clearly indicated that this option is to shutdown OTG after 10mn !!!
    This option must be always turned Off (it's off by default) and the OTG is fully functional ...
    The EU version of Nord is delivered with "C" OnePlus headphones and the sound is OK right out of the box !

    If i dont turn this option, my headphones dont work. The problem is that it turns off after 10 mins im not using them ( after i unplug them) and i need to manually go turn this function again in order to use them...

    Type C bullets earphones inside the box of EU Version AC2003 RAM 12GB ROM 256 GB sold in France by Amazon early August 2020. Of course a box from factory protected by transparent film.

    The Type C bullets are inside the box in specific regions. Not in EU in general. But yes, I tried 2 Type C headphones and ones with 3.5mm to C adapter and all work without any issues without enabling additional things.
    Are those AKG working on a PC or a laptop or other phone brands?
    BTW I also bought it from EMAG but the Bulgarian one.

    France is in EU if I'm not mistaken and the headphones were inside the box of my Nord ( dated August 7, 2020). Sorry if you haven't had that chance 😬

    Maybe this will help you:

    I am quite picky with my earphones and although I have type C ones, I use one with 3.5mm. Maybe you like the sound and feel of the AKGs and you wish to stick with them. If that is the case then try the adb commands from the article. If not, then you can buy the OP bullets type C or maybe earphones with 3.5mm since there is much more variants and an adapter to use them.
    There is always the option for bluetooth earphones. Personally I dislike those but you might like them.

    Yes, France is in EU but it is a special case. Most of EU and European countries don't have the earphones in the box. Depending on the location "What is in the box" will mention different things.

    Don't expect them to support something from another brand. I saw other threads of people complaining about the combination of Samsung AKG and OP and since it is working with other earphones, maybe Samsung have locked something.

    True, but I am quite disappointed with this unequal trade policy which looks like a discrimination for an accessory that costs peanuts.

    Agree. Look what Apple are doing. No charger in the box. Not sure how they passed it in the EU.
