Every time the Mossy Nissan ad comes on I need to rip my earbuds out of my ears, it's incredibly loud and sharp and there's no warning, either, just jumps right into it "MOSSY NISSAN! Mossy moves YOU!"
Every single ad in Germany is louder than the music. That makes them too loud by default. Why? Because I already listen to music at higher volumes.
Instead of going through the hassle of pin-pointing specific ads, all you have to do is make all ads subject to normalization. I use headphones. Do you seriously think your ads won't be loud enough? Seriously?
The only reason I am looking for third-party solutions is because of the ear-piercing volume of those ads, not because of the ads themselves. I don't mind listening to them. Ask yourself the following: Do you really think it's a good idea to damage our ears when your product relies on our ability to hear in the first place?
Please normalize ad volume so they won't be louder than the music we listen to. The way you're doing things right now is counter-productive.

As I have communicated directly to Hinge, starting your ad with an ear piercing bleep without warning coupled with Spotify's insistence on raising the Ad volume 5-10db above previous track is causing actual hearing damage.
I am within a hairsbreadth of uninstalling permanently.
