Description:

Tired of manually lowering your headphone volume when someone talks to you? Xmart Volume does this automatically for you! It even restores your headphone volume after the conversation!

Xmart Volume utilizes the built-in mic of your Mac or iSight to perform active volume control for you. It actively “listen” to the environment sound level and turns down your headphone volume when it detects any sound which is louder than the "background noise"*. This is useful when, e.g., you wish to “increase your chance” of hearing message from the “outside world” while enjoying music with your headphones on.


KEY FEATURES:
- Smart Active Volume Control
- Environment sound level monitoring
- Background noise level adaptation*
- Response sensitivity adjustment

REQUIREMENTS:
- Macs with built-in microphones or iSight
- Macs with stereo headphone output
- Stereo headphone/earphone connected

Good idea - It's not perfect, but this App helps if you stream tv shows that have sporadic LOUD commercials- helps regulate the volume so you're not blasted away by, "WATER-ACTIVATED FORMULA IN THE NEW HERBAL ESSENCE...!!!!!!!!!!!!" At last, my dog may stop barking at my Mac.

Very Good, but sensitive. - This app is specifically helpful when I'm doing my homework, but I need to hear my dad shout up the stairs when the music is too loud. It's very sensitive, so you'll have to tune down the sensitivity in system preferences when you want to use it. Other than this, its a great app, and should be among the top 10 in productivity!
