What's NewV2.8 is a small update featuring interim graphics for the iPhone5 and aligning version numbers across all our Awareness Apps.
There are a couple of minor issues relating to audio changes in iOS6 and we are working hard on bringing Mic Boost back and improving Ducking smoothness.
For maximum App performance, we suggest that Auto-Pause is your default setting
App DescriptionAWARENESS!® FOR ETYMOTIC PRO is the full-featured, PRO-Audio app specifically tuned to match the sensitivity and microphone of Etymotic headsets. This app controls how much outside sound is heard while you listen to music, without the inconvenience of removing your headset.
The easy-to-use interface features an optional dB Noise Meter to monitor how loud (dB) your environment is.
Users can change sound level settings to hear not only their music, but the world around them. Perfect for exercising at the gym, jogging outside, awaiting a boarding call at the airport, hearing when someone asks if you like a cup of coffee in the office, or when the phone or doorbell rings at home, Awareness!® is the perfect solution.
Why Programmable Noise Isolation?
Etymotic headsets offer the highest noise isolation available, blocking up to 98% of ambient noise. There will be times when you want or need to be more aware of your surroundings.
AWARENESS!® FOR ETYMOTIC is an innovative mobile app for anyone who uses an hf3, mc3 or ETY•Kids headset and chooses to hear sounds around them. This true iOS5 multi-tasking app works in the background while you are running other apps.
AutoPause - Pauses and resumes music when the outside noise exceeds the set microphone threshold, so you never miss a thing! Great for audio books. (For iOS Music Player only)
AutoSet - On start up, the app measures the noise around you. It then sets the level at which your headset microphone switches on, so you hear anything that is louder than the usual background noise.
AutoSet Plus - Same as AutoSet except it automatically adjusts the microphone threshold at a set interval of your choice. Great on the move.
Bypass / Mic - Switches your headset microphone on instantly.
Perfect if you want to hear what’s going on around you without having to remove your headset.
ClearVoice - Makes any speech picked up by the microphone clearer and easier to hear.
dB Noise Meter - Upgrades the app meter to a dB Noise Meter which measures environmental noise (for entertainment purposes only).
Ducking - Smoothly lowers your music when the microphone is triggered and turns it back up, when outside noise drops to normal levels.
Microphone Boost – A high-power amplifier boosts sounds picked up by your headset microphone. Use with caution as this feature can cause loud feedback!
Microphone Delay – Adds a small adjustable time delay before the microphone switches on. Prevents accidental triggering of the microphone caused by cable rub or wind.
VoiceOver UI - A special portrait accessibility mode, optimized for Apple's VoiceOver system interface for the visually impaired .
Vibrate / Noise Alarm - Makes your iOS device vibrate when the set audio level is exceeded. Works with all audio apps except iOS music players.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Does not work with any form of BlueTooth or wireless headset
