Ringtine volume really low when BT earpiece connected

When I connect a bluetooth earpiece, the ringtone volume (on the phone itself) is decreased significantly - to an almost inaudible level (I have poor hearing).

The ringtone volume in the phone's configuration is still at the same position on the volume silder, so it's pretty clear this is done somewhere else in the phone's system.

Like mentioned, I have really poor hearing, and it's not practical to wear the bluetooth earpiece all day long. So when I remove the earpiece (but leave it connected) it's almost impossible for me to hear when the phone's ringing.

Does anyone know how to bypass this?
