I can't hear a word you say.
I haven't come to aid.
I can however help you sway,
And maybe turn a head.
I can be loud, I can be sweet.
But I do not speak.
Made for seeing, I don't see.
Attention's what I seek.
While to you my pretty case I wish to submit.
My relatives do love to bind.
But I will never commit.

Who am I?

Is the answer:

Music

I can't hear a word you say.

Music doesn't listen to you.

I haven't come to aid.

Music just is

I can however help you sway,

Dance

And maybe turn a head.

Some people are real 'head-turners when dancing or singing

I can be loud, I can be sweet.

Different genres of music. Some are loud (metal for example, others are sweet - love ballads)

But I do not speak.

It doesnt speak in the literal sense

Made for seeing, I don't see.

A persons taste in music allows you to see much about them, but music itself is incapable of seeing

Attention's what I seek.

Music has always been something that gains attention, from the bards in times of old, right up to now.

While to you my pretty case I wish to submit.
My relatives do love to bind.
But I will never commit.

The spoken word, poetry and so on, all obey strict rules, music however does not and can be whatever it wants, and is ever changing

Could it be

a rumor

I can't hear a word you say.

A rumor is something against which you can't argue or defend yourself.

A rumor's goal is definitely to spread and to get the more attention it can.

While to you my pretty case I wish to submit.

A rumor is a matter of discussion.

My relatives do love to bind.

Bad reputation and gossips, rumor's best friends, will be bind to you and you will not be able to get rid of it.

But I will never commit.

A rumor never commits its peddlers.
