Hearing Saver Automatically Changes Volume On Plugging In / Unplugging Headphones [Android]

Do you listen to a lot of music on your Android device? Then you probably know how much of a hassle it is to adjust the media volume every time you plug in your headphones and again up when you unplug them. Well, no more. Introducing Hearing Saver for Android - a small yet extremely handy tool that allows you to set separate media volume levels for when your headphones are plugged in and when they’re unplugged, saving you the trouble of touching that volume rocker each time. In addition, the app can be set to automatically mute ringer and notifications whenever headphones are plugged in – once again, a pretty impressive option to have up your sleeve. Although notification sounds are usually no longer than a beep, most users would rather want they weren’t disturbed by the sound of, say, an incoming SMS or email, while listening to music on their devices. What Hearing Saver offers is a functionality that many would like to see as part of the Android OS. However, even if the guys at Google stick with manual volume control, custom ROM developers can always integrate said functionality into their ROMs. Hearing Saver is free and open source.Read More
