What it does:
+Uses your headset’s microphone to listen for loud noises and pause your music/movie if one is detected, then play back the sound that triggered the pause and continues for a short period of time. Optionally then resumes the music/movie.

Note: Bluetooth Mic Option (pro or pro features) currently only works with mono headsets and not the AD2P kind

Where would I use it?
+At the office: pause your music automatically when someone is trying to get your attention
+At home: Don’t miss door slams, children crying, your dog barking, or other warning signs
+At the airport: Relax at the gate and have your music pause when the gate announcements start
+Anywhere relatively quiet where you want to know if something happens around you

Best to use with:
Sound isolating earbud headphones with mic- These are practically earplugs now, so don’t miss out on what’s around you.
You can use it with just headphones but be aware the microphone used is now your phone. So leaving it in your pocket wouldn’t work so well.

How to use:
Make sure your headset is plugged in. Simply start the app, push Start, see the noise level around you, set the trigger level by using your finger to swipe the meter, hit the home button to access your music app and enjoy.

Limitations:
-Needs Froyo or higher (Android version 2.2, 2.3, etc)
-Portrait Mode Only for the free version
-You can’t be in a really loud environment otherwise the microphone input will be maxed out and there is no way to detect a louder sound.

Coming Soon:
New Features!

Around Sound user reviews:

Thank you so much for this APP. It work perfectly on my Nexus 7 tablet!

Great app blazing response on XDA and love the imagination of this developer!

Awesome, perfect implementation, thought I was going to have to write this app myself. Thanks! Deselect pause mode to keep listening while hearing outside stuff.

sombody calling me when i listening music. . i need not use pause button or remove head phones from my ears. . . i like this so much. .!!

Why does it have to repeat everything? It’s annoying and not really needed unless you listen to music so loud you can’t hear anything?

I was looking for an app to make my sound louder becuz I can not here with the regular sound And this app repeatedly stopped my music while I was tryin to listen bad app .
