Dont have a option for Bluetooth stereo audio only bluetooth hands-free RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought a new Dell Inpsirion 15R a couple of weeks ago with bluetooth and a few days ago i bought philips shb9000(01) bluetooth headphones.

    When i pair these with the computer o connects but the sound is krunchy( dont know how to explain it in the exact words but it sounds like you record a concert with your 10 year old phone standing next to the speaker). when i use them with my iphone its awesome. so its nothing wrong with them.

    i looked around and people say that you should install some broadcomm and when i try that i says that a newer version is allready installed. 

    And when i check my chooices in the audio playback devices i have no chooice for stereo audio just hands-free audio.

    what can i do to fix this?

  • Hi hardan,


    Thanks for the post!


    Please update the headphone and sound card driver to the latest one to check if it works.

    Update the BIOS as well.
