    Hi,

    I'm new to the forum, as I recently switched from an iPhone 4 to the Galaxy S4. I've had my phone for almost a week, and like most people use my phone to listen to music. It seems whenever I plug in the samsung headphones that came with the phone and try to raise the volume (while the screen is off) I end up getting this pesky message asking "Raise music above safe level, etc..."

    While I appreciate Samsung's concern, I don't need this warning every time, and this is beginning to become a huge annoyance. Perhaps I am missing this in the settings, but is there something I can do so I don't receive this message?

    Also, while on the issue of music, coming from an iPhone I was able to go back a track by clicking 3 times. I've tried this with the Samsung headphones, and it doesn't seem to work. Is this feature unavailable on android/samsung? Since I bike while listening to music, having this type of control is extremely important for me.

    Thanks.

    Also I've attached a screenshot of the warning message I receive.

    Volume warnings cannot be turned off with stock TouchWiz ROMs or any other OEM-skinned Android ROM. This option can only be turned off with stock (though this feature has disappeared with updates) or AOSP-based custom ROMs. Since you're using a new device that has just received root (for Qualcomm-based handsets) recently, you're pretty much stuck with the annoying warning notifications.

    Headphone remote controls are more of a niche factor in Android, but it would be nice if Google or at least Samsung implement this feature.

    It must be the Samsung headphones that cause that pop up warning because I've never seen that using my Bose headphones.

    Yea, it'll pop up for any headphones, or even when you plug it into your car stereo. It bugged me at first, but after a week I stopped caring.

    I actually found that when you hold the volume up key on the side of the phone before you get the warning, the volume up actually goes through... The turn it down a few click...

    Hope it helps
