As the title says. The tablet is about six years old, running Android 7.0. Works just fine as my travelling kit for video watching on trains & planes apart from the headphone issue.

Volume is fine using wired 'phones but any Bluetooth ones I've tried are almost inaudible. 

Is there perhaps a volume boost app or some kind of Bluetooth variation that might help? Am I running up against some kind of Nanny Hearing Protector?

Are some BT headphones simply quieter than others, anyone aware of 'phones that are particularly loud?

Thanks for any thoughts/suggestions.

EDIT : Developer Options ==> Turn off "Absolute Volume" seems to work
