    I have a bluetooth headphones. The microphone is not good enough.

    On calls I want still to listen with headphones, but talk into smartphone microphone.

    If the smartphone "thinks" that the headphones have NO mic, it should work. Right?

    How to do that?

    Not possible as the phone will default to BT connection when a BT device is connected

    @galactic_Zoo ... on tapping in bluetooth menu on a device and select the configure option I can deselect using the device for calling and just for media or the other way round. But I need this even more fine grained.

    Welcome to Android Central! What make and model are the headphones? Are you saying that the mic doesn't work at all, or that other people have trouble hearing you when you use it? If the latter, then you may just have to look into getting different headphones with a better mic.

    @B. Diddy: huawei p20 pro, and "Hiearcool L1" (cheap bluetooth ANC).
    the mic works, but not good enough. People ask me to repeat, which they dont when I am using the smartphone mic.
    is there an option without getting another headphones?

    Not that I'm aware of. I was thinking of the SoundAbout app, but I doubt it affects the microphone, and that app is no longer available on the Play Store anyway.

    Maybe placing the mic closer to your mouth, if you can.

    If the phone thinks the headphones have no mic, you'll only be able to enable Media, not Phone.

    SoundAbout is still available, if you want to take the chance (the site is pretty safe - even the Play store is only "pretty" safe). BTmono might also work. (Start Phone first, then turn BTMono on.)
