When I am having phone conversation, not on speaker, still everyone around me can hear my conversations and the other person in line, even though it is on my ear.

The easiest solution, turn the volume down.

The earpiece speaker has quite some volume, as it is also used for a speaker for music (stereo) so they beefed it up a little, just turn down volume during a call, problem solved. :-)

I tried that already :) but when I lower it too much, I don't hear well. In order for others not to hear, I need to lower the volume to a level I barely hear. Thought maybe there is some hidden setting I don't know.

Ok. Thanks.


Well an alternative if you don't mind is using earbuds that have a in-line microphone.

That way you will only hear the conversation from the earpods (louder and others can't hear it) and the microphone being used will be the in-line microphone on the earpod cable itself.

Microphone isn't too great depending on what kind of earphones with in-line mic you get.
