    So I did a 1 hour session in the gym today and used my stock music player to play the music I have in my phone (not stream)...
    At the end off my session, I was down to 79% battery. Took a shot and Media server was the cause ontop of music player.



    Two questions
    Why do two different things use up energy just to play music?
    ....and Why so much juice?!

    Via Media Server?

    The media server is... serving up content to your BT. Something has to work to move that music from a file to your headphones. I can't say which is the bigger culprit, but several players are involved in the battery depletion to make it all happen.

    Def your BT headset! I listen to music A LOT throughout the day with a wired headset and I don't get the drainage you are getting. I use poweramp and my 'media server' percentage is sometimes even higher than yours!!

    Google play music streams music and I haven't had.that much battery drain. I don't use blue youth.head phones but still try that or another music player and it.might reduce the drain
