It is very common for us to have an external speaker to listen to the songs or listen to the audio of movies that we watch. However, not all audio is transmitted to the speaker as we wish. Sometimes the audio is not as smooth as we expected because of the Bluetooth audio codec we set. As the solution, we must adjust the audio codec of our Android first.

What is Bluetooth Audio Codec?

A codec is a software program that compresses and decompresses digital signals. It can encode digital data, decode the digital data, or both. In Bluetooth transmission, a codec is used to define how the signal is transmitted from a device, such as your smartphone or tablet, to external speakers and other devices over short distances.

Who develops Bluetooth Audio Codec?

There are many codecs to choose from and each of them is developed by different company. One example is LDAC codec, which was created by Sony. Using LDAC (also known as SBC – Sony’s proprietary codec) an audio connection can handle high-resolution streams at up to 990 kbps (kilo bits per second) at 32 bit/96 kHz.

Why do we choose the Bluetooth Audio Codec on our Android device?

As we know currently there are a lot of audio codecs in the world. Each codec has a different ability in transmitting audio from a source to the targeted device. To adjust the type of speaker that will receive the audio transmission from the audio source appropriately, we must change the Bluetooth audio codec from our Android smartphone.
