I would appreciate having the ability to increase the ambient sound level independently of the music volume. There are many times that I would like to listen to music at a low volume while being aware of my surroundings, mainly for safety reasons.
You can simply adjust the volume of the media on the phone, lower, keeping the volume high on the earphones. For me it works fine.
Thank you for the suggestion. I’ll try that when I am indoors. Outdoors I usually have to use the internal player because my Bluetooth connection is poor and that is where I really need to be aware of my surroundings. I’ve tried many different locations of the phone with little improvement in the quality of the connection.
I second that notion!!!
for me it is just the opposite - I would love the ability to lower the ambient sounds but still have a little bit available.
