    Hi all,

    I recently purchased a shiny new pair of SOL Republic Tracks Air bluetooth headphones to pair with my Lumia 1520. Upon activation I realized that they do not function with the phone's Audio enhancements (i.e. the Equalizer). This is my first bluetooth headset, so I've apparently been living under a rock in terms of knowing that this was a widely reported complaint with WP. It didn't really cross my mind to check if something basic like this was possible with bluetooth before purchasing the headphones.

    My question is, does anyone running the WP10 Technical Preview see improvements in this area? Or has anybody heard any of anything saying this will be implemented? I've looked around but can only seem to find info noting that bluetooth keyboards will be supported.

    Thanks very much

    As far as I know in Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 (GDR2), there will be some improvements done to bluetooth.
    Not quite sure if it will be about audio or file transfer or some other service. But there will be improvements for sure.
    Best thing you can do is make a suggestion on uservoice, or search for an existing one.

    Thanks a lot. Yeah I had seen that there were some improvements coming, but hadn't heard anything specifically about the equalizer and audio enhancements, so was seeing if anybody else knew anything or if these features were present in the WP10 tech preview. Good suggestion about the User Voice, I put in my 3 votes for that feature =)
