Ear Trumpet-What Windows 10 Should have Shipped With!


Do I dare say Windows 10 is damn near perfect OS but there is something that i believed is missing,and that is the ability to control individual sounds.By Individual sounds i mean for example i have Tidal playing and have it set at 67 % and systems sounds are too loud at 67 % and would like to have them at 4 % and Chrome at 100% but there is now way to do that until i discovered this app in the Microsoft App Store!

Microsoft does have an App Store for those wondering and it does have some meh apps  and some gems like  Ear Trumpet.This App has apparently been around since 2016 and frankly this is what Microsoft  10 should have been shipped with.

The latest iteration is:

  • version 2.0.3.0

– Fixed an issue with certain apps (e.g. Sea of Thieves) not appearing correctly – Added additional languages (Arabic, Spanish, Hungarian, Korean, Turkish, and Ukrainian).Its only 26.47MB the install is pretty easy.

Once installed you get this sound icon similar to the stick but with options to set the volume individually!!!!. Plus this App has a 4.5 Rating on Microsoft’s App store.

Ear Trumpet
