How to adjust the audio latency on Android
If you generate a sound signal on an Android phone, it always takes a different amount of time until its actually played in the speakers depending on the manufacturer of the phone. It can be instant, but in extreme cases the delay can be several hundred ms.
This can cause the visuals of the phone, or in our case, of Soundbrenner wearables to be out of sync with the audio of the phone.
The Metronome app for Android includes a latency-slider functionality to manually compensate for the latency of your Android phone. The good news is that the latency never changes, so once you set it up once you are good to go!
This is how you do it:
Go to “Settings Menu” of the Metronome app.
Select “Audio Latency Offset” under the App Settings menu.
Move the slider until the LEDs and the audio click are perfectly in sync.
