Let us know if you hear any other ads that are louder than they should be.

 

Thanks!

Lower the volume on loud ads

Hello. I already saw the post that was s fractalblaze and it said that the status was implemented but it's not for me. I listen to a lot of lo-fi and most of it is quiet so I have to turn the volume up. All of the sudden it's quiet and then I hear a huge blasting noise and it hurts my ears really bad. The ad is called "Choose your own AMPVenture" by 97.1 AMP Radio and it plays every single time when there is an ad and I hate having to try to relax and then all of the sudden there's a really loud noise. I use an RCA Galileo Pro 11 powered by Android. AmpBrandCampaign_Ampventure_1080X1080.jpg

Ad is at least 5 times louder than everything else.  Fight or flight kicks in as I impulsively rip my headphones from my ears.

I also want to report two Ads

 

  • The market/ country you're in (The Nederlands)
  • What the ad was for (Ziggo & ANWB)
  • When (Only in the weekend)
  • Platform (Andoid phone)
  • What music/ podcast you were listening to (Playlist with Hardrock)
  • Did it have disruptive sound effects like car noises? (if you consider a yelling person disruptive, YES)

To be honest, It is kind of stupid to ask listeners to report ads which are too loud.

You have all the tools to normalize music, but are not willing to use them for ads. There really is no excuse for loud/louder or loudest ads.

 

Or is it policy to scare away customers of your streaming service?

As it is now, you are profiling yourself as a screaming service.
