    Simply get some samples from any recorder API, like CMdaAudioRecorderUtility or CMdaAudioInputStream, calculate some loudness (RMS or average-of-absolutes over some short time), and compare it to various threshold values.

    The tool is called mathematics.
    RMS: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_mean_square
    "Average-of-absolutes": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absolute_deviation

    Of course you can bring in extras like Fourier transformation, and weight the result according to the human hearing.

    In fact, I don't need exact loudness value. I need a threshold values to on-off enough. I wonder if there is a simple api to use in s60 sdk.
