    I don't understand what you mean by get rid of the volume warning notification! Would you mind explaining how to get it to do that so that I can try it on my phone to see what you mean by getting rid of that volume warning notification? please!

    Connect headphones or Bluetooth to your phone and try to turn up the volume.

    The Disable Increasing Ring app worked just fine on my Galaxy S4.
    No more volume notification warning.

    I'm a very happy (if not slightly more disabled) user.

    Before there were smart phones, there were headphones, for like 70 years. Smart phones are not as loud as most of these.

    Indeed, but back in the day there was no "CE" approvals and dimwit customer lawsuits for manufacturers to deal with.

    70 years ago, cigarette packets didn't have to carry huge health warnings on them. :thumbsupdroid: ...if you go smoking Marlboro these days, its much more difficult to sue Philip Morris Inc. if you subsequently get lung cancer, IANAL

    Then there's Pete Townshend's tinnitus, apparently decades of playing loud rock music through headphones.

    As I read this thread, I find it interesting that this subject is still ongoing after so many years. Back in the late 80's - early 90's, Sony had the AVLS.... a sound limiting switch so you wouldn't blow your ears out listening to music cassettes and radio. Personally, I rarely listen to music or play videos on my N4, so stuff like this don't bother me. To each his own, I guess.

    I hope you find what you're looking for. Pray for root!

    I listen to audiobooks on my Note 4 and I almost always have to push the volume up past the notification level. It's super annoying.

    I use Automate to control volume etc on triggered events. I wrote this flow to automatically launch pandora on bluetooth connect, max volume and click through the high volume warning. Highly recommend this app in general!

    I'd like to get rid of this too. I have a Tab S 8.4 in my truck and it's not too bad, only on reboot do I need to tap the warning. But I have another on the motorcycle and it annoys the HELL out of me because every time there's the least bit of interruption with the wire it resets itself. Then I have to take a glove off to reset it.

    I'll bet I've pushed that damn thing 1000 times. About ready to put cyanogenmod on my devices, but that has it's own issues to deal with...ugh

    There's definitely something wrong with it. There are legit reasons for wanting to turn the volume up, and you can't do it without pulling the phone out of your pocket. I take the subway every day. When trains enter and leave the station, I can't hear the podcast I'm listening to without turning up the volume past the limiter. When I'm on my way home from work, I often have my hands full and find it annoying to have to put everything down, pull my phone out of my pocket, turn up the volume, clear the warning, and then pick my stuff back up.

    It's a lot easier to use the volume rocker on the earbuds that came with the phone to turn what I'm listening to up and down whenever a train comes in and out of the station.

    Also, others mentioned EU and US law forcing this warning, which I doubt. Such a law would also affect Apple, and as far as I know iPhone has no such warning. I have an iPhone 5s sitting right here and could get no such warning to appear. The only even closely similar "feature" I was able to find was an option to lower the max possible volume setting, which is off by default.

    Yeh, might not be actual law. IANAL but it might be an issue of liability. Google, Samsung, et-al probably doesn't want the possibility of multimillion dollar dimwit lawsuits from users deafening themselves, because they played their music too loud and weren't warned about it.

    What Apple does is their own business I think. Although frankly I thought some Apple devices were volume limited already. I've still got a 5th gen. IPod, and I found it can play much louder when using Rockbox custom firmware than the stock Apple firmware.

    This is possibly manufacturer or device specific, because I've found with Oppo phones, there is no warning for Bluetooth audio. They only give the excessive volume warning when using the headphone jack. Which only happens once, unless the phone is restarted.

    I've just started using a TriggerTrap that uses the headphone port to fire my camera's shutter and it needs it to be full volume. Every time I disconnect my camera, the volume drops and it needs resetting. SO ANNOYING!!! :/

    Get MacroDroid and use it to Adjust the volume levels to exactly what you want for each condition change.
    that is what I do for a lot of the same reasons. MD will allow you to set all of the vol levels, see the screenshot.

    You select a Trigger that matches the Change Condition, then go to ACTIONS: there you select Volume Change

    So put a check box in the setup, that makes the nag screen go away. It annoys me, too, especially when I can't get to the screen.

    whoever said "only a few" people complaining about the volume warning is a twit

    I find it annoying and joined this site just to complain, and I'm not the only one, google it, others hate this feature too. Its arrogant to impose rules onto people without the option to turn it off

    especially since samsung phone volume is crap, hell when i plug it to my car its weak as hell

    As a owner of iphones I've never had to deal with such idiotic issues, infact I turn my phones volume to max and turn up my cars volume up. You can't enjoy music in a car if its low volume, infact that's dangerous as it can invoke micro sleep and you'll end up in an accident

    for the twit who said "it's there for a reason", well what about those who are listening to a ASMR video on youtube and thus require the volume to be high to listen to the distinct sounds??

    This worked perfectly for me. I had to dl the Samsung music app from Google Play, but once I did and followed the instructions I haven't seen the warning since. Volume always starts at full blast regardless of the app I'm using.

    I have to turn my phone off daily due to work requirements, so I've found the volume warning particularly annoying. Thanks iz84.
