Okay... Pardon me as I continue to find little problems one by one with my new S3. This latest one keeps re-occurring and I'm getting desperate to fix it.
As mentioned in my very first post here, I bought the S3 last week to do 4 things:
2) Alarm Clock
3) Music Player
So... I figured out how to get the Media Player Icon on my home screen (which took a little doing... I had to get rid of something else; but we'll save that for another post)......
Once I figured out that there is no "Stop" button on the player (you actually have to go to "Options" and then hit "Exit" just to get the music player to stop, who would have thunk it?), I was able to progress and actually start using the music player.
If you are like me (hey... it could happen) you listen to music with the included earbuds or have found your own. I ride my motorcycle all over and (like my old phone) I constantly jamb out to tunes via my earbuds. I have my music player set to "random" so it mixes my tunes up nicely.
Now I will say that using the "Normal" audio settings, I can really get the tunes to crank through the earbuds. The custom (which was nice; but I couldn't keep it cranked because at the start of every song, it would automatically turn the volume lower) or "automatic" settings that also really restrict the volume and as mentioned in one of my other posts, I want it loud! Thus, I've been keeping the settings at "Normal".
I absolutely love that I can skip to the next song by double-clicking the bottom earbuds button. Even on twisties, I have enough dexterity to reach that button and skip the tunes I'm just not in the mood for... Handy.... yes.
Okay... So let's get to the Music Player Problem.
I'm riding down the road, in the middle of a song and suddenly, the volume starts lowering itself until I hear nothing. To be clear, there are no incoming calls or incoming texts, so this is NOT the source of the problem. It just decides on its own that I've heard enough. The TIMING of the problem is completely random. Sometimes it happens after 5 minutes, sometimes after 35 minutes.
Typically, I have to muckle the earbuds and turn the volume up; but sometimes, I need to skip a song (the aforementioned "double-click" of the "pause" button) and THEN crank the volume up. Sometimes, I even need to stop, pull the phone off my hip, unlock it, go to the music menu and actually restart the application!
Okay S3 Experts.... Can you hit me up with the fix?
