I was asked by my friend @ZeroInfinity to create a thread for his mod as it was made compatible with our M8.

Download can be found in the original M7 thread so he can keep track on issues etc.
This thread is intended to make people aware of the sound mod, who don´t know what it is.

well, you should of looked in the AROMA installer before you chose to install it...

I clearly stated that the speaker boost mod is not compatible with HTC One (M8) in the AROMA installer.

I might be planning on making a speaker volume mod the the m8 in the future but, is it really necessary? I don't actually have the device but is it not loud enough already? 95dB should be pretty loud...

Are you having issues with sound volume with calls? Is your volume increased on your phone? Do you work in a loud environment? Increasing the volume also increases the risk of permanent ear damage. I think the stock volume settings are pretty loud as it is.

My in call volume when adjusted all the way up is still sometimes hard to hear. It has never once been too loud where i had to turn it down. I'll have to find someone else with this phone and compare. Might be a hardware issue. It doesn't crackle or pop or sound distorted, its just quite. I have zero risk of hearing damage with this phone on calls lol.

Yes....plz make the speaker mod soon. The speakers are crisp and clear. They are loud in some type of music but often soft in some beats. My iPhone 5s is louder in some particular track than my m8. Hope you will make the speaker loud mod soon. Thanx.

Can/will this mod increase in call volume?

I had a problem with call volume too, if you use the earpiece, the speaker is actually on the left of the phone, so holding the phone a bit more forward makes the audio much louder as the speaker is directly in front of your ear, you can see where the speaker is by looking at the grills under a light, the bottom 2/3 are unblocked whilst the top third looks blocked.

Hi if I flash this mod will it make system notifications louder?

Sent from my HTC One_M8

Project ERA does not increase volume at all. Intense BLAST speaker volume mod increases speaker volume which ,I'm guessing, is what you're after.

If you just want system notification sounds louder, there is no mod for it.

    Be sure to keep the discussion in my original thread guys so I don't have to keep on looking back and forth ;)

    No, my mod will not focus in boosting headphone volume at all.

    Boosting volume will increase the chance of ditortions, audio clipping and additional noise, if you didn't know that...

    It seems that you have completely misunderstood what this mod does. I think it's time that you read the OP properly -_-
    My mod doesn't focus on speakers and it never will. My mod focuses on audio quality which will most likely be heard on headphones. It might change speaker sounds somehow but I am not going to focus on audio quality/enhancing the audio just for speakers...

    Yes please make the sound mod for the external speaker phone please, yes they sound loud on some music but I think they can be louder.

    I have already said that I'm going to do it, no need to tell me twice...

    Or you could all spend some time searching for the answers in the main thread... There is a reason why I don't normally answer anyone here.
