How many times have you missed an important ambient sound from surroundings while listening to music on noise-canceling headphones, earphones? Its easy to miss important events like the door bell, co-workers trying to talk to you at office.
Well, the first of its kind app has landed on Android and its called Around Sound. This app promises you that you will never miss any important sound thats around. You can set trigger levels which can pause and resume music so that you never miss the sounds you are interested in.
When trigger threshoold level is fixed, you`ll be able to hear all voices above the level and you will know what exactly happened even if you were on noise-cancelling headphones.
Around Sound is a very interesting concept and it can actually be very useful if you use earphones at home and want to keep track of your baby/dog when they need due attention. It is available in two flavors: Free [Play Link] and a pro version [Play Link] that features an additional mode called “Street Mode”.
Street Mode lets you walk down the street and only hear the noises above the set trigger level. Never interrupts your music. Pause Music Mode uses your headset’s microphone to listen for loud noises and pause your music if one is detected, then play back the sound that triggered the pause and continues for a short period of time the optionally resumes your music.
