there's an article on straits times yesterday regarding ear damage. will be good to read up....
earphones can cause damage primarily because of our noisy environments, like bus, mrt, crowds, etc.
i find myself listening perfectly at just one little volume bar in my home and yet turning up the volume by many bars when i'm outside.
something to take note of! earphones is not the last name in audio enjoyment... there's still hifi
save the ears for hifi !!! and other miscellaneous situations
