Volutime is not just an application, it's a lifestyle. You only have 5 senses, so it makes sense to protect them. Long exposure to high music volumes can result in noise-induced hearing loss. Headphones can produce sound well above the safe threshold of 85dB. The application has a visual design that allows users to choose the amount of time they want to listen to music for, and then tells them the ideal volume, and vice versa. The goal of the interface is to allow users to be aware of the relationship between time and volume, to prevent temporary or permanent hearing loss.
