    Your headphone needs to compatible, to have that codec support, One plus just gives you option of so many codec licences. You cannot select it forcibly if your bluetooth device does not support thst particular codec and other features. Check headphonezone.in , they got codec aptx HD and other logo beside headphones if they have it. Thanks

    I have the same issue as Go2007 on a fresh out of box 7T Pro updated to latest OS. My headphones Sony WH-1000XM3s are able to connect to LDAC, aptx HD, etc. How do I get the phone to connect using any Bluetooth codec besides SBC? Developer options settings do not stick after exiting the developer screen.

    As you've no doubt read in your Sony user's manual, Sony devices must be connected through dedicated app to give all their potential.

    It's a bug that was fixed in Open Beta 3, but still hasn't made it into the official OTA update yet. In the meantime, there is a workaround to get your selections to stick in Developer Options...

    Change one of the other Bluetooth settings first, e.g. change the Sample Rate from 98KHz to 88KHz, THEN make your selection (e.g. set your codec, or change LDAC audio quality to 'Optimized For Audio Quality'), then change the Sample Rate back to 98KHz. Your selections should now stick when you leave the Developer Options menu.

    Unfortunately, after disconnecting your Bluetooth device, it reverts back again, so you have to do this every time you connect your Bluetooth device.

    I also can't change the codec on my 8 Pro to LDAC with my Sony WH-1000XM4 in developer options. AAC codec isn't able to reproduce the audio quality of DEEZER HiFi :-(.
    Has anyone successfully used the workaround? I'm not able to get it stick in the options.

    Bluetooth will always give studio sound. No 5.1 or 7.1. high res audio is all about frequency.

    Don't change it in developer settings, it'll be overridden by whatever the currently active player app, headset and headset companion app are set to.

    Make sure you've got the companion app set to prioritise quality rather than connection/ features. If you've turned on all the virtual surround nonsense it'll switch to a different codec.

    The only way I was able to connect my sony WH-1000XM4 headphones to my OnePlus 8 Pro with LDAC codec was by disabling the "Connect to 2 devices simultaneously" option from the Sony Headphones Companion App.
    Now, it shows the LDAC logo on the app and in the developer's options.
    My guess is that all of this is due to a matter of bandwidth. Especially that LDAC is known for being bandwidth hungry.
    FYI, The WH-1000XM4 doesn't support AptX while WH-1000XM3 do support it. Sony dropped AptX support in a weird move. I'd say it was to promote its own codedc (LDAC) and not pay for AptX support licences.

    The 8T does support APTX.

    My 7T 5G McLaren does, and I am listening to it right now on my V-Moda Crossfade 2.

    Maybe it is your settings.....
