    yea it will mess up these things in your ear and they never reproduce/heal. I dont listen to that much music, and when I do its not on full blast. If you keep on listening full blast your probably going to be deaf when your older

    No Im not kidding, I watched it on the news once when I was bored. I was like wtf??? all my friends listen to their ipods full blast. Ill see If I can find an article

    EDIT: found one

    http://www.timesnews.net/article.php?id=3607113

    "An iPod can go 110 decibels," Light said. "That's huge. It's like a rock concert or an airplane. It's loud."

    "It's kind of the same as some of the iPod stories that have come out lately," said Dave Richard, guitarist for Bristol-based band Gretchen. "Little ear pieces that can go to a volume that can, over a period of time, take its toll on you."

    I dont understand why people crank it up. If you go past 75% and listen for more than an hour it is harmful.

    The answer is yes it can hurt your ears so its good not to listen to music constantly and if you do, listen to it at a minimum.

    Yeah I used to have mine full, but it never really hurt too much.
    Different effect on different folks I guess.

    Bose sound. Making people deaf one store at a time.

    The next big epidemic on the USA will be people 20-30 years from now going outright deaf from their loud movies, loud cars, and loud sound systems. Pair that up with Diabetes. Go USA. Raise the bar for self inflicted damage.

    Apple restricted the voloume on the iPods about 3 years ago, they used to be a lot louder, but now it's pretty much nothing.

    Your hearing may already be damaged. What makes it tricky is that the damage to your hearing may not be evident right away. The damage you're doing now by playing it too loud may not be noticable for months or even years - even if you stop playing it too loud right now.

    I always turn my iPod to full blast. But hey, this is Regina I'm talking about..she's worth partial deafness.

    Listening to your iPod at full blast everyday can eventually have a negative effect on your hearing. I have my music playing at about 50% of the maximum volume so that I can hear what is going on around me as well as enjoy the music at the same time.
