I am uninstalling as well.  This makes Spotify unusable at work.

If you're still having the problem and Spotify isn't responsive at @spotifycares, use EZBlocker. It works perfectly and just runs in your system tray. I even told Spotify that I was more than happy to listen to ads fro the service (perfectly fair trade), but since they don't really seem to be listening, I'd just have to block them. Here's the link to EZBlocker (no, I'm nto a paid spokesman or anything)

I bloody near had my eardrums blown out by the insane volume of a video add suddenly being blasted at me. WHAT THE HELL SPOTIFY! 

Where shall I send my medical bills to when I rupture my eardrum?

Agree this is super loud.  Ouch!!!

 

It happens on the ads that pop up with a large picture or video.

Hello:

Everyone, I have played around with this odd thing with ads being too loud some. Depending on your sound output setup coming out of your P.C.s this might not work for everyone. If you are sending the PC sound card to an external sound source like a PC speaker system that has it's own external speaker amp system, and/or to a DAC for headphone use, and/or a Home Theater Amp system. First go to the WIndows Speaker Icon in the system notification tray, click it to open so you can turn the overall volume down, and make sure to pull the slider volume down to at least 50%. I have noticed when I pushed the overall sound card Volume slider up beyond 50% the ads playback was way too loud in sound volume, but by using the slider to turn the overall PC sound card sound volume to 50% and below everything had a much more normal volume range, and I did not get blasted out with overall loud ads anymore. Then users can adjust external amp sound sources and raise the volume desired, users might have to play around with both volume settings, the overall PC sound card output volume and the volume on the external amp sound source to get the right volume balance so the ads when played do not blast you.

yeah well... im just gonna go ahead and start with. spotify is literally ruining my daily mood!....
like seriously...
nothing gets me more upset, terrified, and horribly bad mood'ed than spotify adverts coming on at 200-300% volume
"Almost Literally"!!! blowing my ears out, while im just happily playing my survival games.
whenever it happens its so loud that my body literally freaks out in pain and lashes out at my headset..
yes im using a headset btw.. its seriously not fun

i have to say that i also don't usually report bugs or problems cause im a lazy **bleep**.. but this is really putting a cringe into my life...
i have multiple times been a hair strand away from uninstalling spotify but then it would be back to the old file system with old music from when i was 15yo...

(really it just puts the volume at 100% but considering i have it at 1/4-2/5 at "ALL TIMES" you probably understand)

and to make it worse i usually keep my system audio at 100% and my actual headset at around 80%...

im gonna stop ranting now cause i probably could go on forever.. thinking of starting an actual movement against spotify cause they have made me hate them so much for this.....

ps i think it only happens on video ads.. not sure

sincerely you angry neighborhood Zone Walker

Which devices volumn is set to what exactly? I am a little confused by the above information you provided?

 

For me I have my overall OS sound volumn at 50% or below with no extra sound enhancements, these really mess with the Spotify sound output. I then adjust my external amp sound as needed starting from a very low volumn and then increase volumn, until I get to a point where any audio ads play so that I do not get blasted with loud sound from ads. It is a too high of volumn sound output from the Systems sound card volumn that does the sound blasting with ads, when added in conjuction with a high volumn output for an external sound amp system, like a computer speaker system with it's own external amp. Both volumn sources first have to be lowered and then adjusted from the external sound volumn source for a higher volumn wanted by the hearer for them not to get blasted by audio ads. Try cutting both sound sources volumn in half and then increase volumn if necessary of external amp sound sources gradually.
