When listening to music using the default Music Player app on the Samsung Galaxy S5, you may get an annoying music volume warning when attempting to turn the volume up while earphones are plugged into the device. The warning says “Raise volume above safe level? Listening at high volume for long periods may damage your hearing.”
This is especially annoying when you are listening to music and have the phone in your pocket. Fortunately, you can disable the music volume warning on the Galaxy S5 by following these steps.
- From within the default Music Player app, tap the “Menu” button.
- Choose “Settings“.
- Check the “Smart Volume” option so that it is turned on.
- A dialog will appear telling you that “Smart volume is enabled“. Tap “OK“.
Now the annoying music volume warning should no longer appear on the screen when you attempt to turn up the volume on your Galaxy S5.
