How to deal with volume in Android and on flights

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Odd pairing of issues, I know. I have a pair of A161Ps (which I am really enjoying - burn-in made a HUGE difference). I am about to go on a trans-Atlantic flight, and from previous experiences would low impedance headphones, I know that the lowest volume setting on an in-flight entertainment system is still painfully loud. I gather that I should be able to find an inline impedance adapter that will help out, but I don't know how to choose one. Cheaper is definitely better, though.

 

The other issue is with my Android phone. I can listen to music and have no issues with the volume, but calls are way too loud. I'm guessing there's a software fix for this so I wouldn't have to use an impedance adapter anytime I receive a call, then take it off to continue listening to music.I'm pretty tech savvy, but I'm greatly pressed for time, so besides installing something, I won't be able to tinker.

 

Guidance greatly appreciated!

For android just install an app like:

I knew it would be simple enough to find an app, but I figured maybe someone knew of a good one already (I over analyze everything), and I was already asking a the in-flight question, so I figured why not toss another one out there :etysmile: .Thanks.

As for the impedance adapter, just search it up on eBay and they are around $10-$15.

Just go to Radio Shack and get one of those short extension cables with a volume control.  They cost like $5-7 and will work perfectly well for what you need.
