Forget your radio. ;) Is Spotify going to pay for my eardrum repair from these loud commercials?
I'm sure it's intentional to grab our attention, but all I do is press mute until the commercial is over. If it was a normal volume then I'd just leave it and listen to it, but I can't have it being 25%-50% louder when I'm wearing headphones, especially!
Spotify claims to have implemented a solution to this in its 2/7/2018 Status Update, but I still have the problem. ALL the ads I hear on Spotify are much louder than the tracks they follow. Some users have suggested this is a deliberate marketing strategy. If so, it's a poor one. If an obnoxious, blaring ad makes me turn Spotify down, or close it altogether, it's defeating the purpose of ads.
YEP ITS STARTING AGAIN!! FOR A WHILE THE COMMERCIALS WERE AT A TOLLERABLE VOLUME. BUT NOW OCT. AND NOV. 2019 COMMERCIALS HAVE BECOME OBNOXIOUSLY LOUD AND ANNOYING I HAVE TO KILL THE VOLUME ON MY SYSTEM AND I'M ABOUT TO STOP LISTENING ALLTOGETHER.
