    I've noticed that the volume on my shower Bluetooth speaker is much less since I changed from my Note 2 to the Note Edge. I also notice that in the Bluetooth pairing menu my speaker has a headphones icon. Could that be the reason the volume is so low now comparatively? Is there something I can change?

    Are you sure the volume from your phone is cranked up all the way? Newer Samsung phones have a nasty habit of 'limiting' the volume after a reboot to prevent damage to your ears. If you try to max it out, you'd first get a Warning message that you can dismiss once per reboot. But after your device is restarted, the volume is reset to that 'safe' level and the pop up would come back if you try to max out.

    Yes, thanks, even after the popup volume increase it still isn't as loud as it was. It's a shower speaker so you have to be able to hear it over the sound of the running water.

    It has a headphone profile, not a speaker profile, so the phone thinks it's a Bluetooth headphone. Nothing you can do about it except return it if it's within the return period. (It's a design flaw in the speaker - not everyone who can put parts together understands how they're supposed to work. It's also why quality components cost more - experienced design engineers get paid more than someone who read a few books, and 3 months of field testing before starting to sell costs more than "it's made, ship it".)
