I really agree with this omg. Spotify has given me a panic attack 2 days in a row now it's stupid. I was just listening to the hobbit soundtrack before and it was all peaceful and quiet but then a really loud ad came on and panicked me. It's really not good for people with anxiety or that suffer from panic attacks because it's like a jump scare and it's really horrible. Seriously considering not using Spotify because of this.

When spotify ads starts, I jump off my chair because they are so loud !!!

Is that how they want us to upgrade to Premium ?

This is the WORST marketing tactic ever. Spotify, I'm uninstalling you !!!

This is obvously still an issue! a friend refered me to this sight from a competor.  I appreciate the ability to select a specific song or album and not wait for it to come around in a rotation.  But the volume of the viedo adds may very well send me back to my previous online audio provider.  Please fix this situation.

Bump.

This is so darn annoying. I honestly just kill spotify and listen to something else.

Having this happen at the office is not good.

I'm about to dump it. Tweet @SpotifyCares about it. I thought they were
listening, but their replies are generic. At least they'll see it
though...obviously they aren't reading these threads

I started using an Ad Blocker because of it, **bleep** scared me one too many times already.

This is still an issue. The music is 1/2 the volume of certain ads. I have to turn my speakers all the way up just to hear the music. But once an ad hits, it blasts my speakers. 

Please investigate and adjust the balance.

Confirmed. Contrary to my earlier reports of problem been fixed, this is not the case. I have reported yet another loud video ad to @SpotifyCares

Quite frankly, when one of these ads starts shouting at me, I HIT THE MUTE BUTTON, (because no one likes to be shouted at) so I wind up not hearing the ad at all.  I don't think that's what the advertiser wants...

 

Not to mention, I use Spotify at work, in a cubicle environment.  I keep the volume down low enough that I'm the only one who can hear it, right up until one of these ads comes on.  And if you think I'm going to switch to headphones and blast my eardrums out just to spare my neighbors, you are very very mistaken.  I'll just switch to my radio station's stream instead.
