    Default How do you disable the "Listening at high volume..." warning?

    Had this same problem on the S4. Whenever I open the Google Music app, for example, and then turn up the volume using the volume rocker, that annoying warning that says "Listening at high volume can cause hearing damage..." or whatever pops up, and you have to hit OK to dismiss it. On the S5 that warning even seems to pop up more often. I never figured out how to disable it on my S4, which was running an older version of Android, nor do I know how to disable it on my S5 running Kit Kat 4.2.2. If anyone knows of a way, or if there is an app that defeats it, please let me know. Thanks.

    In my S5 Active, I went to Settings, Sound, Volume and set the default music volume. This is great because I typically only listen to music in my car, and need the output at 80%ish to not overdrive the aux input in my car. Only gives me the warning if I try to turn it up louder, but starts out loud.. A little better I guess

    It was never there before, is this their way to prevent a lawsuits? Seriously, isn't this stated in the manual.

    It's annoying especially when I'm driving.

    I used tasker to kill it. Thank goodness for that app! !
    I hated it because I plug in my auxiliary cable to my phone in the car to listen to music through speakers and each time i had that POP up warning about volume, PLUS it automatically lowered my volume! Irritating! ! ! !

    Unless you show how you wrote the Tasker module to kill it, it does no good to tell anyone to use Tasker if they don't have it or know how to use it.

    I bought Tasker last week, and still haven't gotten to first base with it.

    So, telling me to use Tasker is useless unless you show how you did it.

    Similarly annoyed by this, but on the S5 I did notice it only happens after you reboot the phone. So its a once a boot warning now.

    Thank you! I didn't think of that because I never had this before. Worked perfectly. And my notification sound was so loud. Turned that down too.

    If you turn on the sound check option, the warning stops appearing

    Wow! Um, I didn't write the module, LOL. And it is very easy to use so I didn't think you would have a problem still.
    It's a great app and highly rated.
    If you want your volume to stay at a certain level when you plug your headset in, you make a profile (I choose any headset plugged in), then create a task, which I chose volume at 15 level.
    Works perfect every time on both our s5 and note 3.
    You should also read their forums and instructions, sounds like you would get a lot of help you need.

    Download the free app Hearing Saver from the market. It fixed it for me.

    Wow, that was easy! I downloaded the app and had it working to over-ride the annoying warning in under 30 seconds. Thank you!

    Nice. I ended up doing the rooted/xposed/wanam method. This one seems a lot easier.

    You are certainly right. Has anyone thought to compare the danger to hearing with the danger of taking your eyes of the road to deal with that little dialog box. If you are lucky you will hit the button correctly in a bouncing car and not need to do it multiple times.

    Have they considered a lawsuit when someone gets run over? Could they turn this off in driving mode perhaps?

    I guess the only work around is to go through the process once after rebooting phone and before you hit the road so it wont repeat.

    Well around here it's illegal to fiddle with your phone in any manner while driving.
