All audio muted when mute button pressed on bluetooth headset


When on a voice call (Teams or Zoom), pressing the mute button on my Jabra Elite 75t earbud mutes microfophone AND ALL speaker audio, not just the microphone audio. In addition, Microsoft Teams no longer shows the call as muted (instead it seems all volume is reduced to 0).


* Windows 11 version 21H2

* Intel Smart Sound for Bluetooth Audio driver

* Jabra Elite 75t connected via Bluetooth


All drivers and firmware are up to date.

Hello, @jceleste


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.  


I will gladly assist you here. Please, answer these questions to have a better perspective of this issue and try the following steps: 


  1. Was it working before? 
  2. Is Bluetooth an integration? 
  3. Does this issue happen using other headphones? 


I recommend performing a clean installation of your Bluetooth drivers, and then, install the latest Bluetooth driver. Make sure to check you have all the Windows updates before doing the clean installation. 


If the previous step didn't work, try the clean installation of Bluetooth drivers using the latest Bluetooth driver from your Computer Manufacturer. We supply generic versions of graphics drivers for general purposes, however, Computer manufacturers might have changed the features, incorporated customizations, or made other changes to the graphics driver software or software packaging. To avoid potential installation incompatibilities, we recommend that you check first with your computer manufacturer and use the driver software provided by them.

I have the same issue. I even have the same headset. BUT it also happens to my other headset, the "Microsoft Surface Headphone 2"

I can say for my part

1. It was working fine before

2. Not sure exactly what you mean. Bluetooth is integrated in the laptop it is not an addition with a dongle or such.

3. Yes, it happens at least with two different headphones. 


I tried a clean installation of the drivers. Unfortunately to no effect.


Any other suggestions are highly appreciated


Best regards, 




I also agree - clean installation of drivers does not help.

The issue is specifically with bluetooth - using wired headsets or even a Jabra dongle to bluetooth would solve the issue (per others on the internet).  The headset works fine on all other devices except for Windows 11 on the latest drivers.

There are many instances of this issue with the Smart Sound BT Audio drivers across numerous headsets. This worked fine earlier in the year - it appears the issue started occurring a few version sof Smart Sound earlier. I have been unable to install an earlier version of the driver to test.





Try looking at the driver version for Intel Smart Sound Technology for Bluetooth Audio. If you are on version, try rolling it back to the previous version. This resolved the issue for me. The driver version that is working for me is


Thanks a lot for the help.

That tip on Reddit reg. the driver version actually did the trick. Downgrading to fixed the issue. 

It was a bit tricky to get rid of the newer driver, but it worked after some tinkering. 


Really appreciate  your help!
