If you turn up speaker volume on the HTC Tattoo to be able to hear an SMS 
in the street it will seriously damage you hearing - as well is giving you 
a heart-attack - if you're wearing the headphones and receive an SMS.

- Set ringer vol to max
- Put device in your pocket
- Get someone to send you an SMS
- Notice that the volume is not deafening but hearable in the street
- Put on headphones
- Get someone to send you an SMS (if you dare)
- Notice how loud it is, that your heart-rate has tripled and your ears are 
ringing even after the SMS tones has stopped.

Instead there should be a maximum volume for all sounds when headphones are 
connected no louder than a certain comfortable threshold - no matter the 
volume settings.

Based on its date, this issue was originally reported before Android 4.x. Because of the many changes that existed in Android 4.x compared to previous versions, it's very likely that this issue doesn't exist in recent versions of Android like 4.2.2 or newer. Because of the high likelihood that this issue is obsolete, it is getting closed automatically by a script, without a human looking at it in detail. If the issue still exists on a Nexus 4 or Nexus 7 running Android 4.2.2 and is not related to Google applications, please open a new report accordingly.
