Google might now be prepared to provide a fix, though it appears to have been pulled at the last minute, for the Bass slider issue that Pixel Buds A-Series users have been reporting since December.

The Pixel Buds A-Series’ most recent significant update added a Bass slider that allows users to change the default volume of bass by four notches. This slider can be found in the Sound menu, which also allows you to manage Adaptive Sound and Loudness Compensation.

Users have now reported that the update causes the slider to display their selected level but not to really apply it the following time they connect their headphones. Before getting it back to the level you actually want, it frequently demands you to change the Bass toggle. It’s evident that the last few months have been a rather difficult ordeal.

As of this morning, a thread on the Pixel Buds Help forum had 234 upvotes and 158 replies. Those who were following the discussion we alerted yesterday regarding a fresh response from a Google employee:

Everyone is in luck, there is a fix!

Pixel Buds A-Series bass
Current firmware

This linked to a support article firmware update for the Pixel Buds A-Series, which some users have claimed to be mentioned . That story and the response, however, were taken off for some reason. Since then, there has been no indication of an update, making the owners even more irate that it has taken so long to address the issue in the first place.

Google either released its response too soon or had to pull the update after a last-minute problem was discovered.
