    I know it's late, but I can't sleep without posting my idea first!

    When I go out for jogs, sometimes the sound level of the environment changes a lot as I jog.

    This results in my music either sounding way too loud when it gets quite, or inaudible when several cars go by.

    So my idea is what if there was a way to utilize the microphone in a way that determines the loudness of sound output? Like let's say it suddenly was very loud. The microphone would detect that and adjust the volume accordingly, and vice versa.

    Your thoughts?

    I feel this would drain a lot of battery, especially since there isn't a small processor like on the Motorola X that could work in the background on the any of the AX series devices that address microphone. The Moto X has a special low power chip that allow the device to recognize "Hello" at any time. The iPhone 5s/6 has a small motion detection processor which probably couldn't be used the same way.
