Thank you for the patience with us on this. This has been one of the most popular ideas on UserVoice and we definitely heard your feedback.
Today we launched /announcement for mods and streamers. Announcements can be used in chat to highlight a message and are available in 4 different colors along with the channel accent color. Because this is only part of the ask of this idea we are setting this idea to partial release so the community can continue to leave feedback on this.
Setting this to a partial release status as the majority of ads on web and TV apps should now have normalized sound. We are still continuing the work on this and will update the status again when it is fully complete!

Haha I was about to fill a support ticket about that :)
I don't know this much about USA, but I know many country have strong consumer protection laws regarding volume of advertising on TV (a quick check shows some laws emitted by the FCC). In some countries these laws can also be applied to internet.
Overall it would make the experience more "enjoyable"...
Either you keep the loud advertising or you keep the three 30 seconds ads every 15 minutes ;)
