Default to high-quality Bluetooth audio on Linux

·64 words·1 min

Bluetooth audio devices that have a micorphone often default to the HSP quality level when connected to a Linux system, which is incredibly annoying.

To change the audio codec to use when it auto-connects, try this:

Open the default file for PulseAudio, found at /etc/pulse/

# Change this line
load-module module-bluetooth-policy

# To this
load-module module-bluetooth-policy auto_switch=2
