When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

another option is to bluetooth speakers and keep alexa across the room from them.  you have a better shot at voice commands than if alexa is right next to the speakers.

It also depends on what you're listening to. I use mine mainly for radio, and some stations broadcast at a much higher volume than others. One can deafen me at vol 6, while another needs to be turned up to at least vol 8.

I have a solution to this problem.  The first week I had the Echo show, it worked fine.  Play music at Volume 10 and ask Alexa any command and she responds no problem.  After 3 weeks Alexa would not respond if music was playing above Volume 4.  I set it back to factory settings, and Alexa starting to respond just like the first week.  However, once again, this only lasted for 3 weeks.  Amazon is pushing settings to my device, really annoying.  Not exactly a 3rd world problem, but still annoying.

"Volume X" is relative. One of the radio stations I listen to outputs at a much higher volume than others, and another one is particularly quiet. Loud music playing on a stronger station at (say) Volume 5 is going to cause more interference than quiet music would on a weaker station.
