Awareness! The Headphone App 2.0
the author of this app says:
Awareness! The Headphone App that allows you to listen to music and the outside world at the same time. If you want to listen to your music on the move but don't want to be deaf to warnings, sirens or alarms, Awareness! The Headphone App is just what you need. 5 Stars & without a doubt the most important app around. ????? Does what it says and does it perfectly User Review Awareness! lets you hear whats going on around you by using the microphone of your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or in line mic on headphones. From hearing that truck while its still down the road to hearing when someone asks if you'd like a cup of coffee in your office, or when the doorbell rings at home, Awareness! gives your headphones ears. Some of the many reviews so far: A nifty alternative to being forced to keep your music down to a miserably low level in order to hear whats going on around you MAC LIFE Being able to hear whats going on around you above your music should surely be a non-brainer! WHAT HIFI "Audio Safety at its finest!" STUFF.TV One of the most useful apps weve seen this year - 5 out of 5 - WHAT MOBILE Available in the App Store, Awareness 2.1 allows you to pick which features you want and buy them in-app. Standard features include, Audio Ducking, which lowers the volume of music when the mic is triggered, Mic Bypass that lets you quickly turn the mic on or off and Vibrate, which turns Awareness! into a useful noise alarm that can warn you when ambient noise reaches dangerous levels. In App Purchases include: AutoPause - pauses and resumes your music if outside noise exceeds a certain threshold, ideal for audio book listening too. AutoSet - listens to the volume of ambient noise and sets a threshold level. Any noises above that level will be picked up by the microphone and played through your earphones. AutoSet Plus Advanced version of AutoSet, checks and adjusts the mic threshold at a set interval of your choice ranging from every 30 seconds to every 5 minutes (displayed in the UI). Great on the move. ClearVoice - Makes any speech picked up by the microphone clearer and easier to hear. dB Noise Meter - a great way to monitor the noise you are exposed to in everyday environments, e.g. office, site, school, street, etc. VoiceOver UI - A simplified portrait UI optimized for VoiceOver. ?Works with all headphones & earphones - especially noise canceling or noise isolating? ?True iOS4 multitasking app? ?Use with all audio e.g. music, video, games and audio books? Minimum Requirements: Made for iOS4+ iPhone4 or 3GS iPod Touch 4 iPad with iOS 4.2 or above iPod Touch 3 with headset Will NOT work on iPhone 3G Will NOT work with wireless or Bluetooth headsets SAFETY: Awareness makes wearing headphones much safer in general but you should NEVER wear headphones where there is any risk of personal danger! *TAKE CARE OF YOUR EARS! If you need to turn the mic volume up high, its an indication that you could be listening to music too loud, take care of your ears!
