Sony Airband 8. SN43884. Basically very little volume in all freqs. New batts. Squelch full down volume full up. Even tried outside 6v AC charger. All connections proper.

Here's a GREAT idea! BECAUSE this is such a nice but older Sony... "I" would use a Blu-Tooth SPEAKER with a AUX speaker input! LOTS of AUDIO and VERY inexpensive too!

OR I recently bought a BlueTooth TRANSMITTER/RECEIVER that has a 3.5mm" Jack right from it's body! Depending on the 'mode' it's in ~ it will TRANSMIT audio (like from your Sony) to a Bluetooth Speaker! (In it's second mode it acts like a BT RECEIVER.)

Here's a official title of another:
Mini Bluetooth 3.5mm Music Audio AUX Wireless Transmitter eBay: 322589063752 and it's about $7!
This puppy is a Bluetooth TRANSMITTER only.

"This device can transmit music from your media devices(smart phone, iPad, mp3, CD/DVD player , TVs and more) to your Bluetooth-enabled equipment (bluetooth speakers/Bluetooth headphone, etc) simultaneously"

THEN there are THESE "3 Watt" BLUETOOTH RECEIVERS for UNDER $2 ! I KNOW! Hey man ~ just pick your color!

eBay: 112673621308 DANG ~ I'm going to order some now!

MMMmmm try earphones? How is the volume then? Plenty?

ALSO earphone jacks become dirty and the contacts that SWITCH THE SPEAKER OFF become poor conductors that starve the speaker for volume... anything more than this MAY constitute a MAJOR repair cost...

SO KEEP your SONY and consider the options!

Pairing Problem

It may be that the phone does not play music through bluetooth and that it only plays through the earphones that come with the phone. The only way to find out is to read the documentation on the phone or try another bluetooth headset, really. The headset cannot be faulty as it pairs correctly and it works with calls. Bluetooth headsets are not really intended for playing music as it drastically reduces battery life.
