Method and Device for Slowly Reducing the Volume of Audio Track over time to

compensate for User Volume Adjustment

Disclosed is a method and device for slowly reducing the volume of an audio track over time to compensate for user volume adjustment. The device is set to protect the ears' of a user. The device may set in a hidden manner in the ears. Then, the device would slowly start decreasing volume as time passes by rate in percentage of total current volume/time period such as, decibel/time period. This decrease in volume occurs at a continuous frequency during audio breaks in between songs, commercial or show breaks. Thereafter, the device stops when after reducing the volume to a certain level or a particular volume level or a particular decibel reduction. Then a user interface changes, the volume do not pop up the volume meter. Any changes to the volume may not pop up a volume meter. However, the boundaries of the volume meter may be changed to accommodate new volume bounds. For example, a volume meter represents a smaller volume change. A volume position in the volume meter may not change. In an embodiment, the device may provide the user with the sensation of increased volume as user's ears become habituated by occasionally increasing the volume during breaks in the sound.

Thus, the method and system as disclosed herein slowly reduces the volume of an audio track over time to compensate for user volume adjustment.
