Hearphones is not a medical device.
Neither is the Samsung Galaxy S7
This is an excellent suggestion, one that is already present the HereOne, a PSAP from Doppeler Labs.
Thanks for your latest contribution to this discussion. Let me acknowledge your point and feature request. We can't act on or comment in detail on every request. But we are excited when you are passionate enough about Hearphones to request features.
For others following along: the text above attributed to me was originally posted by KilleenWizard. I quoted KileenWizard in my reply. Unfortunately the way the text is formatted, it's not easy to see the distinction.
I recently tested Headphones in-store to see how well they'd work for me. I'm deaf in the left ear and reduced in right ear. I found that the Headphones let me hear the saleswoman very clearly, but a bit on the faint side. Here is my list of requested features:

The voice prompts are too loud and the volume cannot be changed. I've disabled the voice prompts, but the beeps are still too loud and cannot be disabled. Please make the volume of the voice prompts/beeps configurable and save me from the needless volume shocks. Thanks!
I mentioned this in another post. Since I have unilateral hearing, deaf in one ear, I would like a setting that would channel all sound to a single side. This would, I hope, make the "everywhere" setting useful to me.

My son is deaf in one ear with very limited options for hearing or listening devices. It would be awesome if there were a feature to direct the sound of one microphone to go the opposite ear, or at least have sound from both microphones directed to just one earbud. Or even have both microphones go to both earbuds and he could remove the one in his deaf ear!

Battery charge is too short BUT if the battery was easily replacable with a standby battery already charged, that would make Hearphones of interest to me.
Immagine you want to use the device and the battery is dead. You are dead in the water with out a quick replacement battery.
It's a great idea, but surely you've noticed that the tendency with today's electronic products, as they've grown smaller and smaller, is not to have replaceable batteries? (which saves space and increases reliability by eliminating electrical contact points)
On this note, I'd like to see inductive charging for the Hearphones, as it's a bother to find the tiny micro-USB port and then insert the micro-USB cable in the correct orientation.
As a person with one completely deaf ear, I would like a setting that would turn off the speaker on one side, but leave the microphones on that side on. This would not be exactly the same as a "sum to mono" type feature because it would not necessarily blend the input from one side with the input to the other side, only eliminate the output to the side that can't recieve it. A "sum to mono" feature would be much better, but if simply shutting off output to the deaf side would be easier to implement, it might still be an improvement.
