If a call comes in while I'm listening to music with MediaMonkey I unplug the headphones to answer the call, talk to the person, when the call ends the music restarts super loud through the speakers. Even if you plug headphones in quickly you get a couple of seconds of loud music.

Is there any way around this?

Use a player that lets you choose what to do in audio focus change requests like PowerAMP or Gonemad Music Player?

MediaMonkey does wireless sync, so I'd prefer to stick with it. I may suggest it as a feature request. Headset doesn't solve the problem really, I wouldn't use it to listen to music.

Do you need to remove the headphones? I just leave them connected and use the phone's built in mic.

Worth a shot, ta. I may be able to use the headphones and hold the phone near my mouth for the mic. You speak louder when you have headphones on though.

It's habit. Habits can be changed. If you're always using that method you can learn to speak quieter. Well, the theory is there anyway!

When I said headset, I did mean something more like headphones with a mic. You can get them without a boom mic.

I like my Sennheiser mm100, but I'm no audiophile.

You could just leave it installed for the sync and use a better music player like the ones I suggested....

I tend to use GMMP and if I get a call then depending on whether I'm using phones or buds, I either just use the phone like a microphone or use the inline mic. Most apps will pause the music when another app takes focus, should be fairly elementary (relatively speaking) for the MediaMonkey dev to implement.

That is one option. I like Media Monkey as I can rate songs, they sync back to the library on the PC, and I can delete the ones I don't like. I was hoping there was an app, setting, or something else that would do the job, but alas not, so I'll just live with it.

Appreciate all the thoughts.

Use something like tasker or Sony smart connect to trigger an event (remove the headphones) that reduces the speaker volume.
