What Is MINI Speed Sensitive Volume?

MINI Speed Sensitive Volume is an audio technology designed to maximize audio clarity when traveling at higher speeds. Road and wind noise increase with speed, and can ruin the quality of your in-car audio. The smart MINI Connected system uses Speed Sensitive Volume analyzes the speed of your MINI and automatically increases the speaker volume as necessary to maintain optimal audio quality.

Until now, road noise and wind noise were real issues when listening to music in your vehicle. We have all had to raise the volume due to road noise, only to be bombarded with loud audio once we slow down. Excessively loud audio is jarring when behind the wheel, and can even be dangerous. Fortunately, MINI Speed Sensitive Volume solves this problem by increasing the volume at higher speeds, and even lowers the audio when slowing down. This ensures a consistent audio experience at any speed, simply set it once and enjoy. The system even works with convertibles, too!

  1. Step inside your MINI and turn on the ignition.
  2. On your MINI Connected screen, navigate to Settings > Tone > Volume Settings.
  3. Adjust the Speed Volume setting to your desired level. A higher value will increase volume more when at higher speeds. A lower value will make little to no change in sound levels.
