By avoiding prolonged exposure to hazardously loud noise you reduce your risk of developing Noise Induced Hearing Loss. Check the chart below to find out when hazardously loud starts for how loud you listen.
Without setting a safe volume limit for your model iPod you risk developing Noise Induced Hearing Loss from exposure to the iPod's full volume or from listening to lower levels for too long. Sounds over 85 decibels can cause hearing damage and your iPod can easily get as loud as 105 decibels!
