Here’s a quick stat for you on just how loud an iPod really is:
How An iPod is Just Loud Noise
It only takes one "hour a day of listening to your iPod at full volume to increase your risk of permanent hearing loss. Healthy volume levels should stay below 90 decibels but the iPod can reach 115 decibels and the ear buds amplify sound even more than headphones do." This makes the loud sounds of an iPod even louder which are even worse for your ears.
This should be a word of caution to the younger generation who listen through ear pods more frequently than the older demographic does. Just look at all the older folk who wear hearing aids… you’re doing that to yourself kids. Turn the volume down. :)
