Precautions while using Earphones
Can earphones really damage your hearing
Compared to giant PA stacks and studio monitors with 15 inch drivers, headphones or earphones look small and harmless. But what matters is how much the sound makes your eardrums vibrate. In fact, most earphones can produce a louder sound at the eardrum than all but the largest and most powerful studio monitoring loudspeakers, and can easily give noise exposures well above the accepted safety limits.
