Default Volume lowered and pausing music when plugged in to headphone jack

I'm sure someone has already asked this, but I've tried searching and I can't find anything. Every time I plug my phone into my car through the headphone jack and turn the volume all the way up on the phone, it pauses my music, turns down the media volume, and says something along the lines of "if you continue to listen this loudly you may have ear damage"... something like that... Is there any way around this? I'm using Google Music on the Samsung Exhibit II.

I also just got one of those music bullet speakers for my phone and I have the same problem with it. I can't put the volume up to max or it tells me "continuing to listen to music above this volume can cause hearing damage". When I go above that volume, it ends up pausing my music and turning my volume down. It does this with Slacker radio as well. It's starting to drive me crazy. Please someone help me, there has to be some way to bypass this or something.

My guess is that there's something in the UI that prohibits you from turning up the volume too loud. I'd look for it in Settings > Sound. But I don't have the device, so I don't know for sure.

Yeah, I've already checked in there to see if there was a setting, unless I'm missing it, but I don't think I am, there isn't any setting in there.

Nobody has a solution? I can't believe there isn't just a simple setting, they think the only thing that plugs into that jack is headphones?

I looked for an Exhibit II subforum to move this thread to, but I couldn't find one. I think you should call customer support and ask them at this point.

Sorry I couldn't be of any more help.

T-Mobile customer support? I'll have to give it a try. Going to sucks bad if there's no way around it.

Well, just tried talking to T-Mobile customer support, they say it doesn't look like it's defaulted by Samsung to do this, so they recommended I do a master reset... First of all, I'd rather live with it than reset my entire phone. Second, it's CLEARLY defaulted by Samsung, every music program I run gives me the same warning after I turn the volume up, and every program pauses and turns the volume down, so it's clearly built into the phone. This sucks..... Just tried downloading PowerAmp, just for the heck of it to see if it was the apps, the phone is desperately trying to stop the song from playing, it keeps pausing it but then PowerAmp turns it back on, then it pauses it and so on over and over.... I can only turn it up about 3/4 of the way without it doing that.

Only other thing I can think of is to possibly root it and load a custom ROM that wouldn't have that silliness on it. I just don't know where to look for it. XDA doesn't have a section for it and neither do we (here on Android Forums).

Same phone... same exact problem. So this isn't a default on behalf of gingerbread? Just the exhibit II? maaann!! I love it loud!!! This phone gets way louder than my comet did and I would appreciate the ability to appreciate something we all...could appreciate. That's like buying subs with a volume limiter. Or a stereo with a volume limiter. Or having your mother press pause every time you cranked up the stereo! I'm 26 years old, I've heard everything I need to hear. Let me melt my eardrums!

I completely agree, and I even somewhat understand if you could only plug in headphones to the headphone jack. I just can't believe nobody took into consideration that speakers and what not will also be plugged into the jack. It's definitely not a Gingerbread problem, just the phone itself. I'm still too worried to root my phone, I really don't want a $200 paperweight, but I know for sure that I will definitely be rooting this phone in the future. Too many small things that bug me.

I'd be pissed if I had this, I don't particularly care for oem modifications to android to start with but this one is pure crap.

I use max volume all the time for plugging into my truck or using my giant sennheiser cans. I do both of those things about 10x more than I do plug in little earbuds where max is actually loud and maybe harmful.

Now that we have a forum, maybe someone can move it there please? Maybe someone knows something about it. I just don't want to make a second thread about the same thing.

I found a possible solution although it does require buying a piece of hardware.

Here is the link:

http://www.amazon.com/Britelink-Bluetooth-Audio-Receiver-Portable/dp/B0059M4G9K/

Basically this is a Bluetooth audio receiver that plugs into a standard 3.5mm audio jack. So you plug this into the audio jack of your car (or stereo) and pair your Android phone to it. Since this uses Bluetooth there should be no volume issues.

The device is less than $40 (actually closer to $30) so it might be worth the try.

I'm using 3 (cubed) and I don't have this problem. Got a text on the volume control (listening beyond this value can damage ears) but it does not stop anything and I can push the volume all the way up.

I'm rooted and I frozed a lot of useless system applications with titanium backup (see list of what seems ok to remove on the all things root topic. I believe it's the explanation, but 3 is free so you can try just in case...)

The receiver wouldn't work for how I use it, I wouldn't be able to plug it into stuff, I'd need them to plug into the receiver if anything.

No luck with the 3 player. I do like the player though. But it still does the same thing. I'll just have to hope that when I do decide to root my phone, it can be taken care of.

Well I thought you said that one of the reasons you use the headphone out jack is for the car. So I assumed you have a 3.5mm jack on the car stereo (fairly common these days). If so then that is what that blue tooth receiver is made for. It simply plugs into a 3.5mm headphone jack (I'm sure an adapter can be used if needed) and it sends the audio signal that way (which it receives via blue tooth from the phone). The particular device that I linked to even comes with a USB charger so you can use it with a cigarette lighter charger thing.

Seems a good work-a-round to me

I have a 2000 mustang that still has the stock deck in it, so I actually use a cassette adapter, no jack, but I understand what you're saying. Just wouldn't work out for me. I'll try player pro next though.

So the cassette adapter has a male 3.5mm plug on it?

You should still be able to use it with the device I pointed out by simply getting an adapter.

For instance something like this:

For only $0.38 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 3.5mm Stereo Jack to 3.5mm Stereo Jack Adaptor - Gold Plated | 3.5mm <--> 3.5mm Adapters

I'm sure you could also find the same thing at a Radio Shack.

Basically you want an adapter with 2 female 3.5mm ends. The cassette adapter plugs into one end and the blue tooth receiver into the other.

I did have my music volume knocked down a knotch or two while using my headphone to car connection once or twice. But I've never seen the message or experienced any pauses. I use Deadbeef music player for my music (because of the many music formats it supports) and Tunein Radio for streaming radio, I've used both with my car. My phone is rooted, but I don't think it is the reason I don't get the message since I haven't changed anything related to that (that I know of). That message would really tick me off as well, especially since my headphones have their own volume slider on them. I just tried max volume with my headphones and it played just fine, didn't put them in my ears though cause that would be a bit loud.

I haven't experienced this message and pausing yet, though I just got my phone last night. What I DID notice, which was almost more of a problem for me, was if I do any sound effects or anything along those lines, any time there's heavy base or noise in general, the entire song gets "turned down" when it gets too noisy, then reverts back to normal immediately. For example, say there's a song with a heavy bass drum - every time the bass drum hits, it's like it over powers everything else, or it's too much and the whole sound is clipped a bit. I know I'm not explaining it well... I haven't tinkered with it much yet as I just noticed this on my drive into work this morning - I use an old tape adapter plugged into the headphone jack. Works perfect on every other phone/device I've used. Very odd... I hope I can fix it b/c I use my phone for music a LOT.

Awesome, rooted yesterday and something I froze solved the problem. I do still get the warning, but the volume doesn't lower and it doesn't pause anymore.

I had the same problem.

I was trying to play a song to my car radio using the headphone out and when the song would get very loud it would get bumped down (although I never get a msg but I am rooted).

@surgerush
Any idea what you did or freeze to make this stop?

Could you put together a list of what you froze? I could then compare it to what I have froze and see if I can figure out what the difference is (I still get my volume knocked down a bit occasionally). Thanks either way.

Sorry for the false hope guys, turns out I lied. I was just playing it again and it's doing it again, this sucks.

Does it do that with a 3rd party player? I only listen to podcasts using the player built into beyondpod and I have never seen this message.

I've used a bunch of different things, no matter what, if there is something plugged into the headphone port, it happens.

Ok, now this is REALLY starting to bug me. I just bought PowerAmp since it's on sale for $1.99 for the weekend or something. If I change the equalizer settings pretty much AT ALL, I can't even get my volume to go up 3/4 of the way anymore without it pausing on me. So basically I'm stuck with my equalizer all on 0. This is just ridiculous. So sick of this crap

Edit: and yes I know, if I plug it into something, I can obviously turn the volume up on the speakers instead of on the phone, but I have my reasons why I can't do this, so it's driving me crazy that I can't get the volume all the way up on the phone, especially now that I have a nice player that I can customize and I can't even do that.

Edit: I don't know why I haven't tried it before... Well, I guess I do know why, because I knew this was going to be the outcome. I spoke to a livechat rep from Samsung, told them the situation, and just like usual they figure the way to fix it is to reset the phone, soft, then hard. Even though I tell them nearly everybody has this problem, even though I tell them it's been happening since the very beginning, that's pretty much the only thing they can help you with because all their information comes off a computer screen response system. They never have any clue whatsoever. There's no way I'm performing a hard reset of my phone when I KNOW it's not going to solve my problem. Then they want me to send it in to get serviced, when it's clearly something that is built into the phone that is SUPPOSED to be happening, I just want to know how to stop it. So sick of this stupid problem.

I also have this freaking problem. I like to listen to my music as loudly as possible, and I don't want Samsung telling me I can only listen to it on "10" when I want it on "15". At any rate, I went to the market and downloaded two apps. I used to have a Vibrant and it did all sorts of f-d up things in the music player - randomly skip in the middle of a song, volume would go up, down, etc. I discovered the "Headset Blocker" app and it solved the problem with the Vibrant - no more crazy stuff with the music player and songs played as they should.
Then my phone got stolen and I bought the Exhibit ii 4g - nice little phone, but about a week after owning it the volume thing started happening. Pissed me off to no end. So, I installed the headset blocker and enabled it. It worked and my Exhibit ii 4g played music as it should at FIFTEEN on the volume rocket....then after a day or two, it's as though Samsung realized I was listening to loud music and the freaking volume governor kicked in again.
Next, I discovered an app called "Volume Locker". I installed and activated that and it that, possibly in combination with the headset blocker, has kind of decreased the occurrences of the volume police kicking in. It still happens, but not as much.
I also should note that at one point before installing these apps the governor kicked in when I was listening through headphones - prior to this it only kicked when I plugged into an external speaker like my car stereo or the under cabinet stereo in my kitchen.
I really wish one of these much smarter than me android guys could create an app to combat and eliminate this...it really sucks...good luck to all trying to listen to loud music...LONG LIVE ROCK!

There is an app called "Volume Control +" that took care of this problem for me. After downloading this app open it and set your media volume all the way up, you can even set all other volumes with this app also, very nice. But anyway after setting the media volume all the way up I just used the default music player to play my music and it works great, no pausing or volume decrease as long as I dont use the volume bar on the default music player and don't use my phone volume buttons on the phone to turn up or down the music. Instead use the "Volume Control +" app to turn down and up the music. But by default after setting this app it will stay at 15

Experiencing this problem while using Spotify mobile app. Tried 'volume control +', and although volume did not get reset, spotify app still pauses every few seconds, which is unacceptable. Downloaded some kind of EQ app, hoping I can trick the phone into being louder than it thinks it is.

To my surprise, using the software EQ did not work either. Phone seems to know how loud the output to the headphone jack is, even if the media volume remains on 10/15.

There must be a service that rooted users can remove with Titanium Backup in order to solve this issue....... anybody willing to "freeze around"?

So annoying I have to turn my car speakers up to 100% volume just to listen to music at an acceptable volume....

-_-

I talked to Samsung about this a couple months back and they said there is no way to fix it. SO unfortunately we have to live with it.

Default Volume lowered and pausing music when plugged in to headphone jack

I have the same problem with my Samsung Exhibit, so I've ordered a FiiO E5 Portable Headphone Amplifier for $16. You can Google search Fiio Amp, and Amazon seems to have quite a few.
I'm tired of rotating the volume control dozens of times to get any sound level without the unit going into pause mode.

For a review of Mini Amp's "soundandvisionmag" has an article on this (no links on first post).

The unit also comes with a couple of line-in male to male leads, one about a few inches and the other a 1ft or so.

I already use an audio (Ground Loop) isolator to the aux-in of my HD radio in the car to eliminate interference and/or shorting while the Exhibit is charging.

This problem is getting ridiculous. I've tried every workaround, but I see no way to be able to listen to music with wired headphones with this phone. It's kind of hard to get a good workout in when your freaking music is constantly paused and the volume is lowered. Yesterday threw me over the edge as I'm trying to do some heavy weights and the freaking phone wouldn't play any music. I had NO volume. I would turn it up to an "allowed" level (11 i think), and the phone would regulate it and send the volume all the way to zero.
I've tried numerous volume governing apps and several of them have worked for awhile, but then it's as though Samsung realizes I'm listening to music at full blast and slaps me on the wrist with its freaking warning message and then lowers the volume on me...Something like this should be or is grounds for an exchange for a phone of equal value because this volume governing sounds like something that should have been disclosed by Samsung at the time of purchase. They knew it was in there, so they should have told potential customers.

Mine doesn't do that, sounds like something wrong with your particular phone.

Mine does not do that either. I get the message but I can still go to 15. About 8 is fine for my earbuds.

i think i fixed it via titanium freezing the following- ampTuning 1.0.0 , audiotestapp 1.0 ,audiotunning 1.0.0, codectuning by hss 1.0.0
i froze them all and it worked, time to play around and see which one(s) are fixing it.
