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
