AWARENESS! FOR ETYMOTIC is an innovative mobile app for anyone who uses an hf3, mc3 or ETYKids headset and chooses to hear sounds around them. This multi-tasking app works in the background while you are running other apps.
AutoSet - On start up, the app measures the noise around you. It then sets the level at which your headset microphone switches on, so you hear anything that is louder than the usual background noise.
Bypass / Mic - Switches your headset microphone on instantly.
Perfect if you want to hear what's going on around you without having to remove your headset.
Microphone Boost - A high-power amplifier that boosts sounds picked up by your headset microphone. Use with caution, as this can cause loud feedback!
Microphone Delay - Adds a small adjustable time delay before the microphone switches on, to prevent the accidental triggering of the microphone caused by cable rub or wind.
Vibrate / Noise Alarm - Makes your iOS device vibrate when the set audio level is exceeded. Works with all audio apps except iOS music players.
VoiceOver UI - A special portrait accessibility mode, optimized for Apple's VoiceOver system interface for the visually impaired.

If you want more features such as:
AutoPause - Pauses and resumes music when the outside noise exceeds the set microphone threshold, so you never miss a thing! Great for audio books. (For iOS music player only)
AutoSet Plus - Same as AutoSet except it automatically adjusts the microphone threshold at a set interval of your choice. Great on the move.
ClearVoice - Makes any speech picked up by the microphone clearer and easier to hear.
Ducking - Smoothly lowers your music when the microphone is triggered and turns it back up when outside noise drops to normal levels.
