    This is my once-every-couple-of-months-or-so request to either change the timer beeps to a lower frequency or give us the ability to choose our own sounds.

    The brew timers are simply worthless for those of us over 50 who abused our younger ears and cannot hear high frequencies. I have to literally put my face up to the screen to hear the beep so am forced to use manual timers on my phone.

    As one of the "over 50" crowd, I agree! That's on the list for sure, but I'll mention it again.

    We are implementing it very soon- my choice was "not high frequencies!" for our older ears. :)

    Exactly, maybe a fire truck siren? Or a scream of LAST CALL!

    I've heard white noise is actually really effective. It cuts through basically everything and allegedly is easy to local spatially.
