Galaxy S21 settings tips

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had any tips for output settings on an S21. Is there a point to using hi res output over Bluetooth for example, or would it be better to use the Audiotrack setting that is on by default? I guess what I'm asking is are there any settings that make audio better that are specific to the phone or are these output settings more oriented toward the headphones or output device?

High-res is theoretically better than standard CD-quality (and it gives a bit better processing headroom) but honestly unless you have high-res source files, it's very doubtful you'll hear much of a difference even if you have high-end wired headphones or speakers. Bluetooth is normally a lossy format anyway, so again unless you've got some high-end aptX or similar headphones they won't even be sent a high-res signal anyway.

At the end of the day, it's down to your ears and the EQ settings you choose; pick what options sound best to you.

I was getting a little bit of an echoey, bell like sound over bluetooth and wondering what settings I could adjust that might help that?

Not sure if you're using Bluetooth headphones or Bluetooth speakers, but if the first is the case AND you're using ANC then you may want to check if the bell-like sound also occurs without ANC, like in the most "normal" mode without any processing involved. Could simply be a by-product of your headphones. I have some funny effects when using ANC on my Sony Bluetooth in-ears for instance using a Samsung phone. Try to peel the onion. Not easy but highly rewarding.
