Re: Headphone volume warning...
>The headphone volume nag is an EU requirement, I'm afraid, and is now built-in to Android.
Ah yeah now you mention it, I remember flashing Korean firmware onto MP3 players (or else just selecting a non-EU country) back in the day when MP3 players were still discrete gadgets.
>Now, this obviously takes no account of how efficiently your headphones convert 'leccy into noise, nor if they are powered 'phones.
Or if I'm feeding it into another device, such as a car stereo or home amplifier, that has its own effing volume control. Actually, the issue here is my much loved £50 car stereo from Lidl - it's evidently been designed to take AUX input at headphone level, and not at line-level (and even then, it outputs the audio at a lower level than it would if playing off SD card or USB stick). Back in the day, CD Walkmans, MD players and early MP3 players all had two 3.5mm outputs, one of which was line level - but my Lidl stereo was designed about a decade after that ceased to be the norm.
