App Description

Awareness! Variable Noise Isolation for all headphones and earphones. Awareness, with its iconic interface, has become the mainstay app for hundreds of thousands of headphone users since its release in 2010.

A must have for noise isolating and in-ear monitors.

Choose how much, if any of your environment you hear, listen to your music, listen to the world, or listen to both, the choice is yours!

Listen to music AND the outside world without having to remove an earpiece. Walking, running, jogging, cycling, at home, at work, or on your way, Awareness!® helps you hear what's happening around you while listening to music.

Featuring:
AutoPause – automatically pauses your music when someone talks to you, un-pauses when your conversation is over

AutoSet – one button setup, analyse background noise and turns the mic on for any sound louder than background noise

AutoSet Plus – continuously monitors background noise and only turns the mic on for louder ambient sounds, great for when you are on the move

ClearVoice – makes speech clearer and easier to hear

Microphone Boost – gives you super hearing. Caution can make the microphone very loud

3 Band EQ – NEW for iOS 10! - boost or reduce, high, mid, or low frequencies on the mic.

dB Noise Meter – display ambient noise as SPL (for entertainment purposes only)

"One of The Best Sound Aware Apps" SUNDAY TIMES

"The app automatically set a level to allow us to hear the loud noises around us, including when someone asked us to borrow a chair from our table. At home it blissfully kept neighborhood sounds from interrupting our music listening but piped through dog barks warning us of a visitor." APPSHOPPER

"Without doubt the most important app around" User Review.
