I am using Nexus 4 with Android 4.4.4 stock. Whenever I increase the volume while listening to music on my smartphone, I get a warning that listening at high volumes can cause problems to the ears. Is it possible to stop this message appearing?

I would prefer not to root the smartphone yet.

Well, you can't do that until or unless you root your device. Once you rooted your device you can move forward with the suggestion @sameer has guided. – Peter Carlos Sep 1 '14 at 7:26
Follow what @sameer said. There's a tutorial in LifeHacker website if you need. (Remember rooting is MUST). – MANI Sep 1 '14 at 8:13

Once you are rooted, goto settings/sounds/volumes. Unchecked the safe headphone volume box and agree to warning about potential damage to your ears. That's what I did on my Nexus 7 w/4.4.4 ROM.

If you are rooted, you can try one of the following

1.NoSafeVolumeWarning in Xposed Framework

2 .Media Tweak Settings in Gravity Box
