The Awareness! app for iPhone and iPod aims to prevent headphone related accidents by measuring environmental noise levels and allowing users to listen to music and the outside world simultaneously.

The Awareness! app also gives an option to set up an outside noise threshold and is available at the iTunes store for $4.99.
