Can I have a different volume for Vio and for background music apps?

I have an Android phone , which I paired to the Vio and to a Cardo Freecom 4+ Bluetooth installed in my helmet.

The volume of the VIO app is too low compared to that of the music apps on the phone. If I use Vio only, it's not an issue, I just increase the volume. But if I also listen to music in the background (Spotify, Tidal, or just an app that plays local mp3s), then the volume of the Vio is too low compared to that of the music. If I increase the volume so as to hear the Vio, the music becomes deafening. If I decrease the volume, I can hear music fine but struggle to hear the Vio.

Is there anything that can be done?
The Vio app doesn't seem to have its own separate volume control.
Can I pair the Vio directly to the Cardo Bluetooth?
There is an Android app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.spycorp.appvolumecontrol that changes volume when certain apps are open or closed, but it's only for when apps are open or closed - it says that Android doesn't let you have a different volume for a foreground app and for a background app.

    yes the vio cannot control the settings on a headset.
    is there a configuration to handle both outputs on the cardo?

    No. A bluetooth headset cannot know which app is streaming audio to it
