    To my knowledge, this is baked into the ROM. Probably the only way to get rid of it is to root and install Xposed Framework, and even then since the M8 is so new, that may not be an option yet.

    Yes it's possible - I got rid of it on mine. So annoying not sure why Google insists on installing this crap on every version of Android. You do need Xposed installed and then get the Sense 6 mods. There is an option you check "Disable safe volume warning" then say bye bye to this annoying nag.

    You are very lucky then. My Vzone Galaxy S4 also had this stupid warning anytime I had the headphones hooked up and went beyond 60% volume level when the screen is off. Very annoying when you are working out, a good song comes on, and you keep pressing the volume up and nothing happens. Never got around it on the GS4 but finally conquered it with the M8!

    I've had it on other phones too, most recently the moto x, but not on the m8...although I guess it is there for others.

    Same here. I wouldn't be bothered by it though. It's a good thing and more phones should have it. My ears are my living and it's sad how many people destroy their hearing in their youth without realizing how serious it is and how easily it happens.

    I have this warning on my Note 3 (unlocked EU model) too, but when I hit "OK" instead of "Cancel", it'll stop bugging me until it next reboots.

    The assumption that the earphone jack is used ONLY for earphones is what causes this to be a problem. Many users use external speakers which have their own, independent volume control. I, for one, like to listen to streaming radio while I drive. Having to pull over to fiddle with my phone or else risk trying to do so while continuing to drive is far more likely to be harmful than listening at high volume.

    My AT&T S4 had this, but this were a way to disable one of the services and permanently get rid of it. It really is an annoyance.

    Agreed this was a dumb move by Google. I don't need my phone to nag me and watch out for my health. What next are they going to warn you when you turn the screen to max brightness that bright screen levels may damage eyesight?

    It can be disabled, you will need the xposed framework and the Sense 6 toolkit, it's an option under various mods.

    However, when I'm streaming to my car, I have volume at 100% and use the car to control volume. This is not an "ear safety" issue, this is just nannyware. My phone has volume controls, and if I want it louder, I turn it up. If I am listening on headphones and want to preserve my hearing, I turn it down. Because I am an adult. I can make my own decisions. I'm otherwise happy with my M(8). I don't have it rooted, and I think that an option to disable the warning without going through multiple, somewhat drastic steps would be highly appropriate.

    I'm not familiar with xposed. I looked on Play, and there were a lot of results and not sure what I should download. Could you expand on the steps you used since I'm not rooted?

    Hmm. Xposed requires root to operate. Care to elaborate?

    My unlocked M8 on 4.4.4 would give that warning one time after a re-boot, then no more until another re-boot. I updated to 5.0.1 a few days ago and today realized that that annoying notice no longer appears. Thank you to Google or HTC, whomever is responsible.
