Listening to music on Android is good. Especially if you do it with Beats Audio enabled device like HTC One X. It will be the best mobile music listening experience ever. However, this kind of habit can be very annoying for other people under specific circumstances. For example, your mother may have to yell at you just to tell that dinner is ready, you might not hear horn from other car while you’re on the road, and other similar situation. So, is there any solution for these kind of problem? If you ask me, i would clearly said, yes. There is an app, oh wait. In fact, there are two Android app that able to solve such problem.
Meet Around Sound and Hear Voice. These two music app are able to detect the noise level around you and automatically adjust the equalizer of tune that you’re currently listening. Not only allow you to hear atmosphere sound, you will feel like you’re in a movie scene with an actual soundtrack! I’ve test these two apps and i can’t tell you how good it feels to type this article while listening to The Matrix soundtrack. I feel like i was Neo who try to hack an important Zion servers!
Let’s start with Around Sound guys. Pro version is currently priced $2 at Google Play store while the ad-support edition can be downloaded for free. Once you complete the installation process, tap on the app icon to launch it, and Around Sound will automatically determine the noise level around you. It also allow user to determine the limit of noise, which will allow the app to stop your music suddenly. I suggest you to set it above normal since you might don’t want regular sound like keyboard typing or footstep to stop your music experience But i must say that i need couple of minutes to find the best settings.
Around Sound is currently compatible with almost Android music app. You might want to check the complete list here. Depend on what version that you use, the app will react differently to each noise on your environment. On the free version, Around Sound will stop your music and allow you to hear the noise. On the other hand, the Pro Version will lower your music a bit, so you will get a good mixture between the outside and inside sound. Unless you want your music to stop regularly while you walk down the street, i suggest you to buy the Pro version. For $2, you will get full access to the amazing “Street Mode”.
Enough about Around Sound, new let’s move on with Hear Voice. Unlike Around Voice, Hear Voice is simply add static background of constant buzzing and static to your music. In addition, you need to pay $1.50 for that! Oh my. Thankfully, you’re still able to hear the noise around you. Adjust the volume of the app and the atmosphere sound will raise. But as soon as you do that, you will recognize that the static sound volume is increased as well. So, what can i say? Around Sound is clearly much better than this app. Don’t even bother to buy this app unless you want to donate $1.50 for their pathetic effort.
