It's all Rock 'N' Roll
I know we all like it loud! There is nothing better than being able to feel the music, the power of it moves you to the core. It's how music should be heard. Bass rattling your fillings, guitars cutting like the sharpest knives, the drums pounding at your chest and the keys... well filling all the empty space and the vocals soaring, taking you on an emotional journey through lifes ups and downs pulling you here and there and everywhere. Sorry getrting a bit carried away there! But what I'm trying so say is the best way to listen to music is loud!!
But unforunatly not for your ears, they like it quiet! not so quiet you have to strain to hear it but certainly not with your trousers flapping with the bass. Take a look at the chart to your right, it give an idea of what volumes are safe and for how long, (as in before it causes permanant damage to your ears!) and then take a look at the video to your left, I think you'll be in for a bit of a supprise!

Ok you've scared me, what now?
Ok Plugs are great but what about when i'm using my In-Ear monitors?
Give it a go, you won't be sorry!!
did you know?
One of the biggest causes of tinnitus in the young at the moment is listening to their phones/mp3 players headphones too loud, the pressure caused by the excessive volume will cause damage to the inner ear very quickly and is permanent! Best remedy is to get a better isolating set of headphones/monitors so you don't have to have them so loud to drown out the outside noise, customs work very well for this.
