Hearing Saver

Set default volume for headsets

NOTE: This app is no longer maintained, its repo was archived.

Hearing Saver operates in the background to protect your ears from high volumes through bluetooth or analogue headsets. When you first install or update this app, you MUST open it at least once!

After the initial setup, Hearing Saver should work without further input from you. To setup the app, open it. You will be presented with the Setup screen. It contains a number of controls, and they each interact to allow you to customize Hearing Saver’s operation. They include defaults for ringers and media, plugging and unplugging and to remember last volume.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
